I had a great and relaxed time in the hotel. the weather did not permit for us to enjoy the pool area and tiki bar but it was nice. i would go back to enjoy the beach. Keep up the good work. It was a pleasure.

First the rip-off... there is no beach nearby. I felt their marketing materials were misleading. "Resort Hotel on Osprey Beach" well, Osprey Beach is what the sign over the pool says. It IS a very nice pool, with a lovely multilevel deck, sand hauled in, and a Tiki Bar, but that does not qualify as a beach, nor even a resort in my book.

This was a hectic business trip and we were looking forward to some sun on the beach after a work day, followed by dinner at Morgans, the steak house in the hotel. Turns out the steak house is closed Mondays-- and with the building in front of the "beach" there was only chilly shade in the afternoon. So I went to the Tiki Bar as soon as it opened, and was the only patron there while the bartender completely ignored me until my husband arrived. Then he served me the worst Margarita I've ever had! It was an artificial-tasting mix right out of the bottle, no pretense of simple syrup. No pretense of anything for a place that calls itself a "Boutique"

The rooms were clean, in a stylish modern decor. However, there is no elevator to the 2nd floor-- and no bellman, so you have to do your own lugging. The doors' theme is London Tube stops, which was cute, but difficult to remember what room you were in.

The lobby looks like a mid-century Vegas-themed hotel. The business center had 2 computers, and the only printer was behind the front desk. The clerk had to hand any prints over when he was not busy checking people in. Not exactly business-traveler friendly.

What saves this review from a "Poor" rating is the breakfast. The breakfast was stellar, I'd give it an A+, for continental plus made to order egg sandwiches served in a very nice coffee-bar setting. The server was very agreeable and made ours carry-out as we had a long day ahead of us.

For a one night stay, Bentley's would be ok, but for anything longer...

Room Tip: There's neither an elevator nor bell staff so you might want to request a 1st floor room

My boyfriend and I planned a weekend stay at this boutique motel for my birthday with the assumption from the misleading pictures on the website that there was a beach within walking distance. We quickly realized that this motel not only did not have a beach close by but there wasn't much of anything close to this motel.The closest beach is 30 minutes away. There are also very few restaurants and bars close to this motel. The food at the motel is just okay, typical bar food. Long story short this is not somewhere I would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient beach vacation.

Greg W, General Manager at Bentley's Boutique Hotel, responded to this review, February 22, 2013
I was very sorry to read your review regarding your stay at Bentley’s Boutique Hotel and would like to apologize if you thought we were located directly on the beach facing the Gulf of Mexico. Bentley’s is located centrally and conveniently to all the attractions that Sarasota County has to offer. The closest beach is Nokomis Beach, just 4 ½ miles away and 12 minutes away. The beaches of Siesta Key (to our north) and Venice (to our south) are each about 20 minutes away. Bentley’s even provides a complimentary shuttle to the beaches so you don’t have to worry about parking in the busy tourist season.

Opposite the hotel is Oscar Scherer State Park, famous as part of Florida’s bird watching trail, but where you may also hike, bike, canoe and swim. 2 miles north of the hotel is Historic Spanish Point, with ancient Indian burial mounds, last century settlers’ dwellings, an historic chapel and gorgeous vistas down to the bayfront.

Within easy distance there are also dozens of golf courses, world class shopping, outlet shopping, fishing, jet skiing, Ringling Museum, Mote Aquarium, Sarasota Opera, and Sarasota Ballet and Orchestra.

Dining options abound. Apart from the Tiki Bar and Morgan’s located on site, there are 9 restaurants within 4 miles, 4 of which are located directly on the intra-coastal waterway. The front desk agents have all their details, I wish they had been given the opportunity to tell you where to eat.

Please come back and ask how we may help you find the Sarasota you are looking for.

Recently my husband and I stayed at Bentley's Boutique Hotel in Osprey,Florida, this hotel is nothing but first class. From the moment we walked in they treated us with first class. The rooms at this location are georgeous. The hotel was recently renovated, the fixtures in the rooms are very modern and the rooms are spacious. The pool area is like a resort with a sandy beach area and very comfortable lounge chairs to a tiki bar. The continental breakfast is great as well along with the restaurant on site. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it 100 percent. Enjoy your stay! We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Choose a pool side room

Not a bad place to stay. Morgans restaurant and the Tiki bar both had very good food and friendly workers. I was frustrated that there was no elevator to haul luggage nor was there ESPN in the rooms of any guide. No rooms with a balcony were available either. Overall it was okay.

This modern hotel had the best bathroom tiles and highest quality fixtures. Well appointed rooms were on the small side with full sized beds. Decor is modern and clean. The pool was warm and had an great vibe day and evening. Breakfast was included. They served to order egg sandwiches that were delicious as was everything else served. The cafe staff and the hotel staff were great. Location of the hotel was 10 minutes from Sarasota or Venice. I tried running in the am, however, route 41, Tamiami Blvd. is a split highway, no sidewalks. Loved my stay. I was traveling with my sister and 2 children, 6 & 8.
