We had a nice three-night-stay at this hotel. Keep in mind that the hotel is located on the Sarasota side, and not on Siesta Keys. So if you are not willing to pay for a beach front hotel, this is a great option to explore the area. The hotel has a nice pool area and a good Best Western-style breakfast... More

I AM STILL AWAITING A RESPONSE from the hotel as to the amount that was charged to my credit card, as to an explanation for the MASSIVE HOLD they placed on my card, as to the additional charges that were laid upon me on my way out - after I had settled my account with an employee two nights prior...

Good location. Even though not on the beach, 5 minute drive to the beach parking lot. The check in was swift, the room was clean and beds comfortable, wifi and ac worked well. The room was quite small to be honest, but was properly cleaned everyday. I have to mention about the breakfast. I was amazed by how good and... More

My husband and I booked this room for one night on 4th July due to proximity to beach! I booked this on basis of Internet reviews and pictures on website- wish I hadn't bothered. On arrival I could see that it looked like a dodgy motel off a 90's movie. we had already paid $150 for the night so had... More

We stayed here for a quick weekend July 11-13. Extremely pleasantly surprised by the hotel and included amenities! Free popcorn in the lobby, along with free coffee, and a great free continental breakfast 0700-1000 in the morning (french toast, sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits, creamed chipped beef, fruit, yogurt, milk). Free on demand shuttle to where ever you want to go,... More

Shuttle service unreliable and hotel room clean other than the outer edges of the floors. Found a can of chewing tobacco on the floor an also spider eggs along the edge of the inside of the room on the floor. Thankfully, the beds were clean and the bathrooms were clean. Could use some updating of decor but nothing major. During... More

We stayed here with my kids & husband for the weekend? We chose this place because of its close location to the beach, yet it fell way below our expectations. The building is old and right next to it is a trailer parking area which was an eye sore. The first night we arrived we found hair in our pillows... More

This hotel is close to the beach and many restaruants, the free shuttle was great... Love the bartending staff out by the pool...Over all nice rooms, not fancy but good for the price. I highly recommend the sports bar Harry's in front of the hotel; Good food nice staff and good entertainment.

Great place to stay for the money. Clean and comfortable. Blankets on bed were less than adequate but everything else was wonderful. Right across from shopping center and grocery store. Very close to Siesta Key Beach.
