Yeah the "park" with shuffleboard and the heated pool was really nice. We also liked the "old Florida" style one story buildings. We stayed directly across from the heated pool but also just a short walk from the No. 1 beach in the US. Check-in was simple and the coffee at the office was available most all day. Try the... More

We stayed in the Boutique room at Sara Sea and were very happy with the hotel. It was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The best part is that it's only a short walk to the private beach. However, they had a pipe burst in the room next to us and they were doing demolition work early one morning... More

This motel was not what we expected. It is an old motel .. And feels like an old motel. The sheets are flimsy and thin as can be. The bathroom is so small you cant even believe it. For $300 and the reviews on trip advisor we certainly did not expect this. The lights outside the building did not go... More

Loved this place! Had the retro charm of a motel because you can park in front of your door, but once inside your unit it's top-of-the-line! Clean as a whistle too! Plus, you can walk to the beach! Would have given it a 5-star rating, except there were a few drawbacks: (1) shower only/no tub--we had a toddler who was... More

We booked two rooms with friends and we were very happy with our choice. Our friends had a separate bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom; we had a great king bed and a good kitchen. It was spotlessly clean. One fantastic thing for me after weeks of air conditioning was that I could open the window and get some fresh air!!!... More

The resort excels in a number of ways. As you can see from the title it has the basics down cold. It also has a very helpful staff. Why then, did I give it only four stars? If you want privacy, this isn't the right place. The resort is located in a cluster of small motel like buildings. It is... More

What a lovely spot to stay at on Siesta Key. This resort must have been a motel that was renovated and refurbished. Our room was lovely, great furniture, great bed and kitchenette, with fridge, stove and dishwasher. We were just a short walk from Crescent beach. The grounds were lovely, with a heated pool and it was very quite at... More

We had booked a one bedroom suite for the week of Christmas. When I booked the suite I asked about the size of the sleeper sofa as our son, who is 6'3" would be sleeping on it. As soon as we walked it it was apparent the sleeper was too small. This getaway was the first Christmas since our younger... More

If you are planning to go to Florida for a beach holiday, Sara Sea Resort is a perfect place to stay. The deluxe suite suited two people perfectly. There is a full kitchen, including dishwasher, daily maid service, complementary coffee in the room and in the office, complementary movies and lawn chairs for the beach. The U shaped configuration of... More
