“Ask for square footage of your room "cottage" before booking!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Thank goodness we live in Florida and were able to visit Queen's Gate Resort before booking a reservation. These are the smallest rooms we have ever seen. What they call a "cottage" is nothing more than three small rooms - a room so small with a full bed that there is no room to walk around the bed, a room with a queen bed and futon equally as small, but no door for privacy, this room attaches to the tiny kitchen - no living room area at all. Please ask for the square footage of their rooms before you book a reservation. Would be much more comfortable in a hotel room. We found other accommodations nearby that were in the same price range but were actually condos or townhomes.

Room Tip: Always ask the square footage of the rooms you are viewing online. Photos are very deceiving.

Your review states that you stayed at Queens Gate in April of this year, yet in your text you indicated that were glad that you didn't make a reservation due to the square footage. If the square footage of the cottage which is 500 square feet is not enough for your stay, we do have several other options such as a 1000 square foot 2 bedroom house as well as 1100 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath vacation rentals. When a guest asks for the square footage of our units, we are happy to provide that information to them. We have limits set to the number of guests we allow in each unit as well. Everyone has their own opinion on size and type of rental they prefer. Maybe our other options would suit you better if you decide to stay with us in the future.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Our group of 6 recently rented the house at the front of the inn. It was simple, clean, comfortable and welcoming.The property is beautiful and very well maintained by the staff. Nice big open yard for activities (young and old), a large pavillion for grilling and get togethers (and shelter in the rain) and a clean, comfortable heated pool. Kathy is the one who really made our stay unique and relaxed. She will do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. Kathy is out-going, knowledgable, caring and proactive (meaning the job pretty much gets done before you ask), which is a refreshing change for us! When we first made our reservations, she was flexible and understanding to our needs. Kathy loves getting to know the guests and just doing the great job that she does.The owners are fortunate to have such an ambitious, self motivated individual working for them. We are planning on returning next year. We have been coming to ami for 10 years and this will be the first time that we will be coming back to the same place.

Room Tip: No restaurant or fitness center, cannot rate.

We recently stayed at the Queens Gate Resort. The room was clean but very inadequate. For $200 a night I expected hot water in the sinks. There was none. The sinks also did not drain properly. When I took a shower the water was up to my ankles because it also did not drain. The faucets on the bathtub were reversed and not properly installed. Very poor quality for an "alleged" upscale motel.

Room Tip: Look for a different place on Bradenton. There are many!

I am greatly concerned and perplexed about your recent review of Queens Gate Resort. I have not received any complaints on no hot water in this resort. We have Renai instant hot water heaters in all areas and have not experienced any issues. I am quite concerned as well about the shower not draining as I did not recieve any complaints about that either. We respond to every guest as quickly and efficiently as possible when issues arise. Can you please tell me the length of your stay and which room you were in. Thank you for the kind rating in other important areas, we appreciate that very much. We apologize if you were not happy with your stay and suggest that you try us again in the future and if there are issues, please never hesitate to let our staff know immediatly as we strive to meet the needs of all of our guests.

We return to our Paradise on AMI, to a warm welcome from Kathy. Our room was # 2 with all the comforts of home and real comfortable queen bed, plus a great heated pool and of course the beach just a few steps away. We park the car and never used it again till we left.The Queens Gate is centrally located on the island so walking to anything can be reach by foot or the Free local trolley that run the entire island and a stop real close to QGR. Kathy is always around and helpful for resturant advice and quite knowledgable of the island. We regreted having to say good-bye on the forth day, so we didn't, we just said till next time. IMy wife rally loved the rocking chairs on the porches and the huge cabana in the court yard.

I won't repeat what others have already said except to say that Cathy was fantastic. Stayed in cottage nine during January low season and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Pool is good temperature and the poolside cottages are spacious and have everything you need to make yourself at home. Best for families with kids because of the extra bedroom - you can put the kids to bed and sit out on your patio poolside with a glass of wine. Laundry on site is super convenient. A few complaints include poor water pressure in the shower despite excellent update of the bathroom, well worn sheets/linens (they were clean but not lend themselves to a good sleep because the well thin and uncomfortable and outdated), the queen bed was also a tad uncomfortable and very creaky. Also, if the owners are looking to spend some $ on any upgrades they could invest in sone new beach chairs (the current ones are rusted and heavy to carry across the road to the beach). Lastly our room lacked good ventilation and was a bit musty though this is something that is hard to get away from in coastal location in my travel experience. The staff very obviously do their best to keep things clean and comfortable. Overall, our Queen's Landing experience was on par with others who have rated it on trip advisor. We will return again in the future and recommend this quirky little jewel to our friends and family staying in the area!

We stayed on AM island after participating in the Disney marathon in Orlando, looking for a place to relax & recharge our aching legs. We were not disappointed. We opted for a Kings cottage which is slightly larger & has kitchen etc. Well kitted out, nice shower & just a hop to the pool. Small complex with a real friendly feel. Use of towels to take to the pool or beach & other 'beachware' (floats, chairs etc). Staff were very helpful organising a surprise for my husband for when we arrived. Location good within walking distance to shops on Bridge St & short car ride up the island to Anna Maria & Publix. Would definitely recommend !
