“Came back and will definitely return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Brought my mother over for a short break and we stayed again at the Hibiscus and had a wonderful experience. This was my second time and I have found it to be consistently a great place to stay. Easy to get down to the beach, clean, and the kitchen was nicely stocked with what we needed. We felt very much at home and I will definitely return for another break in lovely Sarasota! Staff were all helpful and Julie recovered my mother's new hearing aids after she forgot them on the bedside table!!! They get my vote!

I stayed here recently while in town for work. The buildings were older, but the rooms were renovated and fairly up-to-date. There is a living room area with a kitchenette and dining table, making it easy to prepare meals in the room. The living room furniture was old, and the couch folded out into a small bed, good for two small children. There are new flat screen tv's in the two rooms. The bedroom was comfortable, but the carpet appeared dirty. The room had poor lighting, but the bathroom was clean and well lit. They provide a small continental breakfast, but the only hot option is a belgian waffle. They also have cereal, fruit, juice and coffee (which is pretty good). The hotel is just over the bridge from the beach, and feels like it's straight out of South Beach Miami.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Had 2 other family members book rooms as well. Interesting that we all booked the same room type but corner room is definitely bigger. Pool was warm and clean. Staff was friendly. Room was overall clean, however the sofa in our room had chicken and other misc. food items in between the cushions upon our arrival. We asked for this to be cleaned and after our 2nd request, housekeeping was sent to the room and we were told they could not find most of the food. Umm, it was clearly evident in between the only 2 cushions in the room. We decided to put a pool towel over the cushions so we could sit on the couch after that. Lotion in the room was only a half bottle when we checked in but luckily we brought our own bath supplies. The blanket on one bed had a few orange stains which appeared to be from Cheetoes but all other linens were clean to the naked eye. Rooms are spacious. Location is great to Siesta Key and Sarasota. Restaurants within walking distance. We were in the end unit closest to the road but were not bothered by the road noise at all.

Room Tip: Request a room on 2nd floor with a pool view. These are the best in the hotel!

Stayed here with my girlfriend in september. We really liked it! Room was very large which is great when you want some space to unpack your stuff. It was clean and well taken care of and the beds felt fresh and in good quality. Only thing negative to say about the place is that it was farther from Siesta Key than we had anticipated. There´s really nothing much at all in the vicinity but the bars by the water tower (ask the locals!) were a pleasant surprise!

I just got married in Sarasota and chose the Hibiscus and their sister hotel on Siesta Key as the places for my guests to stay. This was a great decision. The hotels gave me a great price for my guests and were super accommodating to last minute changes--which with my family, there were plenty.

The rooms are nice and spacious and come with fully equipped kitchens, which my mother- and sister-in-law greatly appreciated. The hotel is also very centrally located--just minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. This made it very easy for my out-of-town family to enjoy themselves.

Our priest was also from out of town and enjoyed laying by the pool during the time he was not marrying us.

The best part about the hotel was the service. Everyone in the office was so nice and helped my husband and I coordinate with everyone. Requests were filled quickly and they handed out our welcome bags. We could not have asked for a better place.

Don't bother staying here if you wish to keep your valuables. We stayed here and had over $600 dollars in electronics stolen from a locked safe in the room! The general manager denied the safe used a key when we were given a key. We had to use the key to lock the safe and the general manager said she didn't know what were talking about because all of their safes are supposedly electronic. Unbelievable! There are thieves working at this place and they will rob you blind then deny it and make up a story to hide behind while making you look like the person in the wrong!!!

You can not go wrong by choosing this accommodation. We come to Sarasota/Siesta Key every year and have always stayed in larger chain hotels. This year we wanted to stay close to the beach and came across this place online. I called and right away the gentleman that answered was over the top helpful. He helped me book the reservation and even described where they were located for a reference to me. Several weeks later I had to call back to have them email me the confirmation again, and within minutes of hanging up the phone, I received it. Location is very close to beaches, local restaurants & bars, as well as a nice pool area. We arrived several hours early and they didn't hesitate to let us check in early. Room was clean, and very comfortable. Now for the complimentary breakfast: AMAZING. There was plenty to choose from and they even helped make the waffles. Every time you came through the lobby, they always asked to make sure everything was ok, and if we needed anything. As someone who travels a lot, and as a professional in customer service, the entire staff exceeded all expectations and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place to anyone looking for a nice place.
