We stayed here one night. Room was clean and breakfast was standard family type buffet. Bed was comfortable and had nice seating area by pool. However, no where close to beach and seemed a bit expensive given quality of lodging. We came to check out sarasota and likely won't be back. Can't even see the gulf from the hundreds of... More

I was uncomfortable that we had an exterior room on the first floor where car lights flashed in the room during the night even with the curtains closed. The bathroom was so tiny and even though the room was clean, it was outdated and had a loud air conditioner. On the plus side, loved the LARGE TV and free WIFI.... More

This hotel was very clean and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly and made check-in/check-out a breeze. Convenient to the area I was working. Will definitely stay here again when I am working in the area.

We were pleased with the pool area and the bar area. The people working those places were quite friendly and helpful - gave advice about restaurants in the area. The room itself was rather small for the price paid. The breakfast was excellent - had good choice of protein as well as usual carbs. Eggs, sausage, yogurt, etc. The hotel... More

This was my first stay at this hotel and it was wonderful! My room was clean and housekeeping staff were very attentive. The breakfast was good and the Sand Dollar bar and pool were wonderful!! Kim and Dennis were the best at making it a special time! The location was perfect! I would stay here again....

We stayed for a week at this nice little hotel in a busy area close to Siesta Key. The property was spotless and well maintained. The rooms were a decent size, but the bathrooms were quite small (but spotless). The staff was professional and very friendly, from the front desk staff to the ladies who worked at the breakfast buffet.... More

This hotel is well situated in the Sarasota area. This was our second stay and we have been pleased both times. It is close to the Siesta Key and has other dining and entertainment options very close nearby.

Room was very nice with the notable exception of the bathroom facilities, which although clean, were quite small. It took some juggling to get two people ready in the morning. Bed was very comfortable.
