We booked this hotel for a weekend getaway, and were thrilled with the service, grounds, room and location. Quick easy drive to downtown Sarasota, beaches, St Armands Circle and across the street from well known shopping. Popcorn in the lobby was great snack throughout the day, and the front desk and bartender all very friendly and helpful. I LOVED the... More

We called and they got us in when I thought because of a last minute stay we would have trouble but they got us right in and o the first floor because of my husbands back trouble and the bartender by the pool, Katrina, was absolutely the best. She recommended the best restaurant within walking distance and was great at... More

I stayed at this property with the family. They had everything I needed for such a great price I found online. The bar was great at the hotel and the whirlpool was nice. I would stay here again! The beach is wonderful here

I liked this place. Nice lobby. Good breakfast. Very polite staff. The rooms are motel outdoor access so the rooms smell musty from the Florida humidity but they are clean. Bring a spray. The rooms are small just big enough for bed and dresser. I do feel even with close beach proximity they are overpriced at $100@night. Perhaps if you... More

This hotel is a great value. Clean, friendly staff and a tiki bar to boot. spent the weekend there without an issue or complaint. Centrally located and close the Siesta Beach, shopping and about 5 miles from I75.

The staff at the front desk and pool bar were great. The accommodations were modest but yet very acceptable and the locations was ideal for accessing various venues nearby. The hotel provided free internet access and the free popcorn was a daily treat. We definitely will return to this hotel in the future.
