Thought twice about writing anything - since I had been able to call a on a moments notice and get an ocean front room for 5 days over the holidays - if the place got too popular we may not be able to get in. But then I thought, that is absurd and decided to post.
This is a small cinder block hotel - it old, but the love and care they have put into the place with paint, decorations and upgrades creates a tropical, warm and friendly haven for your time on the beach. It is clean, everyone I ran into was helpful and courteous.
We stayed in Room #6. We could watch the ocean from our small table by the window or from our king sized bed.
We loved the location, took the free trolley one way and then the other. Spent a day at the Myakka River State Park which was an hour away and fabulous. Visited the Robinson Preserve which was a 10 minute drive away. Ate at the Seafood Shack - and want to go back!
Woke up Christmas morning and walked the Gulf beach. Santa had left me a sand dollar on the shore.
If you are looking for a safe,clean place to relax on the beach this is it. Nothing more, nothing less.
