After the second night again no crib. The advise from the staff putt some blankets around the mattress so our daughther would not roll... More

As a business traveler, a week stay here is not to bad. It is fairly quiet and you feel fairly safe. Internet was slow at all times and booted me off line a few time each night. Cable TV, Micro and fridge were all in good working order. Bed was 50-50 on comfort. A/C worked fine but with beautiful weather... More

I have killed 2 roaches on the floor and wall and an additional 2 black ants in the bed. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! I will have to pack my bag outside by shaking every item out and inspecting it before placing it in my luggage. Some vacation.

Room was very neat and clean. Staff was very pleasant. Location was very accessible for our needs in Sarasota and Bradenton. Breakfast was very good. Internet was a little difficult to access at times.

The hotel staff was great the hotel was old and smelled. The room bedding was old and reminded me of a college room. Bathroom tubes had peeling and need to be replaced. Farther from the beach with traffic and no one could recommend a good place to eat. The staff was friendly and as helpful.

Excellent location. Staff was friendly. Bed was extremely comfortable and shower pressure was good. At 1st room had a strong smell of deodorizer, but it went away after awhile. The pool was clean, but pool furniture old and uncomfortable. Also, breakfast was not appetizing.

Don't expect luxury, but the hotel is a good value for the Sarasota area, where a typical hotel room at the height of the season can be $200 a night. The staff is friendly, the pool is heated and inviting (though we did not use it), and the hotel is undergoing some renovation (new curtains were being put up when... More

When we arrived at 5:30 pm we were told our room was not ready. We waited about 45 minutes and finally looked into the room. It was clean but the clerk told us we had to wait for it to be released by Housekeeping. The room was dark and had a very bad odor. The floor was not vacuumed and... More

Yeah... the hotel was cheap for a reason. The bed was hard, the remote didn't work, the bathroom light started flickering our second night there, the AC didn't work and to top things off one of the cleaning people left their scrub brush on our bathroom sink. Oh and our swipe key stopped working our second day there. The only... More
