“Friendly, comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Stayed one night at this hotel. The room was large and well appointed for the price. The staff was helpful with local information. Enjoyed a great meal waterfront at Woody's Roo Bar which is within easy walking distance. My room was quiet despite the location close to the interstate, although road noise is clearly loud as you walk near the hotel. The hotel is located on a frontage road just across the street from an outlet mall. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

On vacation from Scotland we stayed there a couple of times in October and November 2013. Really chose it to be close to Woody's Riveroo Bar next door its easy walking distance from the Hotel and the Outlet Mall is only just across the road.

Was still under renovation but this didn't cause a problem.

Road noise from the bridge is minimal, the renovated rooms are very good and the breakfeast is really good for the room price.

Anne on reception is worth a mention, a very helpfull staff member.

We will be back there next October on the way to Fort Myers.

Catch you in Woody's next door !!

This sleep inn really wowed me. My room 303 was spotless, and beautifully decorated. I can not believe they are going to remodel these already beautiful rooms. Kudos to the owner for keeping on top of things from housekeeping to the free breakfast area which was also spotless. I only stayed 2 nights while the motorcycle races were going on so prices were a little higher than norm but I would definitely return. I dont want to leave out how friendly and courteous the staff was as well. Breakfast included some items not usually on the continental list like fruit, eggs and sausage for muffins, fresh waffles, and yogurt. Woodys restaurant is right next door for lunch and dinner choices.

Rooms were on small size. Bathroom door stuck, so you had to really shove to get it open. A couple of lighting fixtures not working. Left early in the morning for the beach and came back around 2:30pm and room was not cleaned....we went to pool for hour+ and room still not cleaned. Maid said it had been cleaned in the morning.....and did we have someone else staying in it??

We stayed at this Sleep Inn for one night on 10/26/13 as part of many involved in a baseball tournament being held one exit to the south. I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary based on the price, but was I surprised.

I have to give major kudos to Anne the woman working at the front desk. She was so helpful, patient and sweet. We had tons of young boys, ages 7-9 with us (quite rowdy) and she didn't let it phase her at all. We had freshly baked cookies greeting us after our first day of competition. What a treat!

I had tons of questions and Anne never once made me feel like I was inconveniencing her. She is one of the best I have seen in her position in a long time. Great personality and very helpful.

Just a warning though, the hotel is in a middle of a renovation if that is a concern to anyone, but it wasn't to us. They only had one set of washers/dryers set up because of this. I usually don't do laundry when traveling, but because the boys only had one uniform for two days of games, we all had to do laundry, but I think for the most part we combined it into a couple of loads so it wasn't an issue. Also, the web site says there is a fitness center. Not any more :) They have done away with this in the remodel. I was planning on using it and was a little disappointed, but then I ended up not having time to work out so it didn't matter.

Breakfast was a little bit more than I expected for a Sleep Inn. They had eggs and sausage and the Belgium waffle maker along with the normal breakfast items so the kids enjoyed this too.

If you want a nice view, ask for a room on the backside of the hotel. It overlooks the Manatee River.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

I stayed here 10/19/13 for one night, and it was very clean, lovely view, quiet and pleasant. Had not one problem and really enjoyed my stay. Good restaurants nearby, friendly check in staff. Bed was very comfortable. Enjoyed the HBO a lot. All in all, more than worth the money for my stay. Thank you!
