The exterior of the building is attractive. The lobby,while small is nice. There is a complimentary popcorn machine which is a nice touch. The front desk clerk was very friendly and asked if I had AARP or AAA. since I had AARP my rate dropped 10%. The rooms are decent. The bed was a little lumpy and soft. Not perfect.... More

Wonderful small hotel convenient to everything in Siesta Key. Hotel personnel were outstanding. Very clean and surprisingly quiet. Can walk to town or very short drive to public beach. The free breakfast had a nice variety of options.

Sayed at this hotel because of its great location. Can walk to restaurants, shopping and leisure activities. Short ride to the beach: under 10 minutes. Had no difficulty negotiating to any of these places.

The hotel is in a good location, the staff was pleasant, there is a free shuttle to the beach, and the breakfast was okay. However, those are the only positives about the hotel. The room wasn't cleaned very well, the carpet was dirty, there were spiders and spider webs in the corners of the room, roaches (small house roaches) crawling... More

The location is very convenient and the reception staff is excellent. When we made our reservation online, We had requested a quiet room and firm bed, but apparently the local facility never got the request. We were in room 419 on the top floor so it was good that no one was above us but the AC unit whined loudly... More

This hotel is right at the gateway to Siesta Key Florida. It's a great location if you can't find a place on the key or can't afford the beach front pricing. You can expect clean, adequate rooms and nice continental breakfast as well as warm cookies in the afternoon and hot coffee and teas throughout the day. There is a... More

This was a great find. Very clean, nice hotel. I'm picky about smells & appearance. Close to Siesta Beach, free shuttle is a great service. Hotel is good size-not too large in that your walking forever to get to your room. Rooms are quiet, we stayed poolside and never heard anything. AC was good, bed was very comfy. Would stay... More

Lovely pool and bar poolside. Good breakfast, comfortable rooms. Great access to beaches with option to use shuttle but also easy to drive. Walking distance to food and animosities as well. We wished we had left more time for the Sarasota area and plan to visit again and likely stay here for the value and convenience.

My wife and I found this hotel to be nice and clean the free rides to the keys was a major plus and the breakfast was good also. We found the price to be very fair when comparing to other hotels. Dale and Naomi.
