Great location-close to siesta key and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Publix grocery, Marshalls, Ross, Books a Million bookstore, Ulta, Steinmart and lots of other stores in plaza across the street and a Walgreens is also very close. Room was clean and quiet. Bed comfortable. Breakfast buffet was great with lots of fresh fruit and hot items; also lots... More

This hotel is a pretty good value for the location. We paid $120/night in February. The hotel is walking distance from Siesta Key - if you don't mind about a mile of walking each way. It's really hard to find parking at the beaches. We rented bikes just over the bridge, and had a great time wandering with them. The... More

I stayed here on vacation, and to visit my aunt. I had a really nice time. The breakfast was excellent. The rooms were nice and clean. There was a beautiful court yard, and I loved the hot tub. I was very happy that there was a complimentary shuttle. I would stay here again.

This is a good mid price hotel in the Siesta Key area. I booked before Christmas for my February break and paid £100 ($150) per night through LastMinute.com for a four night break. I specifically asked for an upper floor pool view but when I checked in they had no note of my request (despite showing the email booking) and... More

This is an excellent mid range $ hotel for siesta key; the very best hotel in a central location. The customer service is superb; professional, friendly, and hospitable.......the rooms are spacious and clean; I do agree with other reviews that I would prefer the separate sink area outside bathroom to be included in bath area but, to me, a minor...

This was my 2nd time staying here and I found the staff from the top on down the line to be very friendly and accommodating when I wanted to move to the pool side. The Bed was very comfy with lots of pillows. Clean rooms as well. The breakfast choices were all good and the organization of the food service... More

Very enjoyable, the area is beautiful. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The pool area was very clean and offered a relaxing paradise in the hot sun. A few minute drive to the most beautiful beach I have stepped on to. Lots of good restaurants in the area. Close to all the amenities and some shopping is... More

This hotel had clean updated rooms with all of the standard amenities. Fantastic location near beach and shopping yet priced far lower than beach hotels with old out of date rooms. Bed was very comfy. Not just a great value but a great hotel.
