“Excellent staff and clean hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The BEST staff I have ever seen...Beginning with Eric on the Front Desk, always smiling, helpful, and cooperative, as well as Miranda and Virginia all of whom were pleasant and helpful. Scarlet kept both a meticulous and delicious dining experience available every morning with her effervescent personality and great positive mental attitude. Let us not forget Estella who kept our room clean and refreshed every day during our stay. We will definitely return to a Comfort Suite again based solely on the positive experience with the staff and the cleanliness of the property. Thank you to all I have mentioned. Your friendliness, courtesy and respect made our entire stay the most enjoyable in years. We wish you all the best!

Room Tip: 3 floors only, a bit of a view, clean and refreshing pool with SALT water, NOT chlorine! Had trouble...

We visit siesta key quite a bit on the weekends as we are from Tampa so we have seen a bunch of hotels! This one was quite a surprise. My wife is used to the nicer accommodations so was skeptical when I told her. She was more then happy! We had our 5 y/o son so the king bed plus pull out was perfect with a half wall divide. The room was clean and smelled new. The room even passed my wife's black light test. The pool is tiny but was perfect for a few nights of cooling down. The hot tub was huge and very warm. Both were clean and in great condition. The breakfast was very good as well. Pancakes waffle sausage biscuits eggs and various cold options. Staff was on top of keeping stocked even with the crowd the food was fresh and hot without waiting for more. Overall this stay went above all of our expectations. Also close to siesta beach. About 15 mins. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed 2 nights. Close to I-75. Very ckean & comfortable kind bed. Agree with other review about the too cold & noisy air conditioning unit next to bed. Chose this hotel based on reviews, especially breakfast which we were not pleased with at all. If you grew up eating govern,ent surplus powdered eggs then that's what the soft scrambled eggs are like. Pancake make is good, if you can get to it. So crowded morning of departure, tried 3 times to get in, no place to sit. Final try it was just turning 10:00 and was still full, tried to get a pancake but staff had already turned it off and rudely infomed me that "Breakfast is Over." Staff was not friendly, no one ever spoke to us coming or going or in halls. Went down for a cup of coffee in evening but the dining room was closed for a catered guest dinner gathering and couldn't get coffee. Waffle House is nearby, I'd plan on breakfast there. Refrigerator has no freezer, don't plan on ice cream or refreezing you travel ice packs. Ringling Museum & Mansion was wonderful and well worth the visit!

We needed a home base hotel while visiting family and this was an economical choice since we seldom use budget hotels however this is a newer place so it's not dirty. I did have an issue with too much "cleaning solution/febreeze" odor so we had to open the windows just to get it out, but it wasn't that bad so we continued to stay. The temperature controls of the room were horrible and we found ourselves constantly adjusting for too-cold or too-warm, and it was noisy at night, especially unfortunate for the people nearest the window with the cooling system blowing on them all night. This location offers ONLY ONE washer and it's SMALL--and ONE dryer (average sized) so be prepared to wash out your beach clothes at midnight because you are waiting on others. The water pressure was poor and the water never really got hot enough but was OK. The mini fridge was about 3 feet tall and there was a tiny microwave in the room, with an ironing board and iron also if necessary. There were luggage holders as well to set our bags on during our stay. The place was very clean and the bathrooms were large. Overall, our stay was good. We probably would not stay here again just because of the laundry situation. They had a nice little pool and hot tub in the back of the hotel and parking was easy. The neighborhood is a good suburb within walking distance of a Walgreens and only about a mile away from a grocery store. Traffic on the nearby road was hard to navigate but that's not the hotel's problem. It is a good hotel and pretty clean, however, the cleaning solution smell was enough for me not to be completely satisfied with our stay. People at the front desk were very nice. It was good enough.

Room Tip: Top floor room (3rd floor) room 302 is the first one the cleaning staff get to in the morning, which...

Great value for the money. We stayed here for seven nights. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. The pool was wonderful for night swimming.
The staff was personable and helpful...especially Judy. We checked in around 11:00pm After a 15 hour drive,and she greeted us with a warm smile and treated us as if we were family.
The breakfast was very good, I especially enjoyed the pancake maker.
The property was near a Publix , Costco , restaurants,shopping, and most importantly,not far from the fabulous Siesta Key and Tamiami Trail..
Loved our stay here and would recommend this hotel without reserve. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor near the exit. This was helpful when loading the car for the beach.

I stayed here for 6 days with a son's baseball team. The room had two double beds and a pullout sofa. Everything was spotless. Morning breakfast was more than ample. Large breakfast room.
Outdoor pool with hot tub was a hit with the boys and the parents alike. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful (especially Ms. Judy). Location is excellent for beach visits.
Only comment for improvement....elevators REALLY SLOW!! (pretty minor point however...)

Room Tip: View facing West looks across a small lake and is rather pretty.
