“from beginning to check out an awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

I spent 6 days there only planning on two but Kat the front desk clerk and Patricia the Bar/restaurant server made my stay more than average. They smiled, treated me with respect, went out of their way to accommodate me when I needed special. All the other staff are excellent and helpful too but these two shine. the pool and the rooms are great and I never heard a plane inside even though it is near the runway. Great place to stay.

I come here for business regularly and I am a Diamond member. Most HGIs are predictable - clean and forgettable. This one was neither. The mattress was worn, and the hotel is in a pretty shabby neighborhood. Plus, no breakfast "because the no one showed up." HUH? At this price range in Brandentpn/Sarasota there are MANY better options.

Listing this as a 5 star hotel is laughable.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the incident in our restaurant earlier in the week. Should you decide to return, and we hope you do, we can promise you that action has been taken and that what you experienced in the restaurant was not the norm whatsoever. Our restaurant is open for breakfast at 6:00 am on weekdays and 6:30 am on weekends without exception. Late chef coverage earlier this week was a very rare (almost unheard of ) occurrence, and very disappointing to us as well. Please contact us directly if there is anything we can do to make this right for you.

This hotel is in an excellent location, close to everything we needed. Everyone was very friendly, and helpful, no complaints there! The room was nice and clean, however, the walls in the bathroom were quite thin as I heard the people next doors' conversation (I thought it was my husband talking to me, lol). The bed was not very comfortable, hard mattress, and the complimentary internet was sloooow!!! I was getting impatient waiting for pages to load. The very friendly and well trained staff is what saved this hotel, in my opinion. I don't complain to the staff unless there is a major problem, and none of these issues were major in my book. We loved the convenient location, and did not have time to use the pool.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

We completely agree with you about the location. We take pride in our immediate area, being so close to great attractions like the Ringling Museum as well as a short drive to the downtown bayfront and Lido Beach.

Regarding the bed, if you could reach out to us directly, we would greatly appreciate it. We'd like to identify the specific bed you used and see if something might be broken inside, as your comments are not the norm. We normally get great feedback about the beds, either our adjustable ones or our Serta products. Some of our beds are brand new; others are just a few years old. So we expect all to be good, comfortable products.

First, the service was impeccable. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. Any requests were promptly fulfilled. We had a handicapped accessible room which was spacious and comfortable. But the lounge chair was too low for a handicapped person to use without help in getting out. The bed was acceptable, I've seen better and worse. The room was quiet and the property was situated away from the traffic. Buffet breakfast was good, but the complimentary coffee in the lobby was not very hot. Loved the Keurig, microwave, and fridge in the room were great inclusions.

We were expecting more for this hotel (besides being an Inn, it's a Hilton!!). The mattress was very worn out and bathroom cleanness was not good, there was hair in the bath tub. We had to ask barman to complete our drink with a different (similar) liquor, because the one we ordered finished in the middle of the dose.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us. We sincerely apologize and can promise you what you saw is not the norm, and that as a Hilton property, we do hold ourselves to the highest standards for cleanliness.

Since you completed a survey as well, we have identified the room you used as well as the attendant responsible for serving the room. Again, we can promise you for any hairs to be left in the bath tub is not acceptable to us, and not the norm. We will be working with our team to prevent a reoccurrence of such a problem moving forward. If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

I stayed at the hotel a few nights while attending a wedding in the area. Hotel shuttle from the airport was quick and convenient. Although the weather did not cooperate, this hotel was great if you want to be close to the airport. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and prices reasonable. Nothing within walking distance for upscale eating; thus the shuttle van came to the rescue and took us downtown to Hyde Park Grill. Only criticism of the hotel was breakfast on Saturday morning seemed hectic, under staffed and omelet took 45 minutes to be prepared. Not sure what happened, as Sunday was fine. I would stay here again if being close to the airport is important. The wedding was on the beach and taxi’s hard to get late at night from island to hotel. No upgrade for being Diamond.

Was in town on business for two nights, needed to be near the airport. Very convenient, excellent staff, definitely one of the nicer HGI facilities. Will definitely stay there again next time in town.
