The hotel was very well maintained, staff friendly and experienced. Our room was number 402 and had two comfortable double beds (great pillows), flat screen TV, wifi, microwave, frig, and was large and very roomy feeling. Best thing of all was it was spotless!!!!! Breakfast in the morning was well stocked and had pretty much everything needed to satisfy even... More

The room location was fine and the general premises were neat and clean. The bedding mattress felt old and too soft and the carpeting looked very "well used" to the point my wife didn't want to walk barefoot on it. Breakfast was very good for both days. Service was friendly and helpful at all times.

We stayed here after our original hotel (the Sarasota days inn) was an absolute disgrace... This was so much better! The whole place, especially rooms were super clean and tidy - the only exception being a squashed rat in the car park. The rooms were nit just clean but also super comfy which was just what we needed at the... More

This is a typical mid-level hotel. Room is ok, with a comfortable bed (but pillows too big and soft). Bathroom small but there is good counter space. However, it is open to the bedroom (other than shower and toilet) so anyone washing up early or late could disturb others in the room. There is no grab bar in the shower... More

Wonderful hotel near the Selby Aquatic Center, where I had come to watch my grandson in swim meet. Excellent accomodations, friendly and professional staff, and even popcorn greeted me every day. Many restaurants and shopping are close in all directions.

I've traveled to 71 countries and have stayed in many Best Westerns. This is the "Best" of them all! I spent two nights there, and the total experience was good. Reservations . . . check in . . . room cleanliness . . . shuttle to beach . . . all great. Katrina in the poolside bar is a example... More

Very comfortable hotel. Short drive to the public beach and half the price. Staff were great. Full breakfast was nice but ordinary menu. Liked the two drink complimentary coupon. Close to restaurants and shops.

My husband and I stayed for three nights and we did not want to leave. Arrived before our room was ready and strolled out to the pool and bar where we felt welcome immediately. The bartendress was friendly and chatty and when my husband locked our keys in the car on our departing day she found us hangers to "break-in".... More

Quit so this allowed us to sleep good at night. My wife made me look at the bed mattress and behind the headboard for bugs. It was bug free. Room was, clean, bug free. Good food at breakfast. The Breakfast staff did a excellent job and was curious. Transportation to beaches easily arranged.
