The walking distance to restaurants and shopping was nice to have. We enjoyed the Free breakfast. It was surprisingly good! Although we did not use the shuttle bus to Siesta Key, it is a nice amenity.

Nice surroundings and good location. 2 pools and nice tropical garden. Good for families with children. Room service could have been a little better. About 10 minutes to the beach. You can go to the North Beach and park your car there for free. Visit nearby Mare Mar village for nice bay view restaurants.

As we were on a budget, we decided to stay just over the siesta key bridge and rent bikes rather than stay beachfront. It only takes about 10 minutes to bike to the beach, and another 10 to the bars and restaurants. The hotel isn't luxurious but it had all the basic needs and a few extras. Would recommend.

Your comments are based upon not staying at this hotel property and are libelous and inaccurate as you continue to harass hotel staff, using profanity on the phone while you continue to be misguided. We're not sure why you would want to stay in a single guest room as 4 people that has a king bed and a twin size... More

Picked this hotel on a whim after reading reviews - I'm so happy I did. We stayed here during the summer, so the price for our three night stay was perfect. The easiest check-in and check-out I've ever experienced at any hotel. The hotel was always clean and presentable, even with guests coming in and out of the lobby area.... More

We stayed in Room 310 and reported that the bolt was loose on our door. We reported this to the front desk. Someone came up to fix the door while we were in our room. They didn't knock and proceeded to stop coming in when we told them we were in the room. They left. My husband asked one of... More

Sink was clogged, no new/replacement towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap, etc. were delivered on the second day of our stay. When we brought it up to the attention of the front... More
