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.

Everything was just great. Breakfast was good. Not enough room for everyone to eat, had to wait for a seat everyday. Pool was very inviting and the pool staff were great. Front desk staff were very friendly and took care of everything we needed. Rooms were just right for us. The location is fantastic. Siesta Key is 1 mile away.... More

Wasn't sure what to think when we pulled up to hotel, outdoor corridors, people drinking & smoking on the balcony.... But we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean hotel, beautiful pool area, helpful staff and easy 1 mile walk, bike ride to beach. Rooms are definitely small, but good enough to come relax after a day on the beach. Would stay... More
