“Great Location, Great Price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed here for a wedding last weekend. Both myself and my significant other are in school and we are strapped for cash. The reception was at the Resort down the road. We were looking for a place that was close the beach and St Armands Circle and if we were lucky..within walking distance. Oh and price! We got there late around 7pm and the office had closed, but the key was waiting with a letter regarding our room. This place is directly across the street from Lido Beach, we were very happy with that. We walked into our room and we were shocked! (in a good way). There was kitchen, dining room table, living room, the bedroom and walk in shower. We were able to walk or take a short drive to St. Armands Circle, walk to and from the reception and head over the beach during the weekend. It was great. The only downside was that the bed was two twin beds put together with a sheet over to put them together and the sheets felt very grainy, like there was sand on them. However they were the temperpedic mattresses. I would totally come back for another short weekend getaway.

Great place very close to beach and quick walk to St Armands circle. My room had a kitchen, comfy bed, terazzo floors. If you dont need all the hand holding of a modern hotel than this is the place to stay! If you need a turndown, room service, and lines at the check-in then dont bother. It was exactly what I expected and will def return on next sarasota trip.

Quint little courtyard type motel. Very friendly staff and very clean units. Location was great 1/2 block from the beach. Just wish they had a pool. Only in Sarasota for 2 days 1 night. So pool was not that important. Nice units for family fun. They hav kitchens were you could easily fix meals for the family.

Room Tip: The air unit is controlled by remote. We did not realize this for several hours after arrival.

Nice place, pretty much as stated in reviews. Loved the location, very short walk to beach, public pool on beach for small fee. Quiet at night, very friendly people. Beach gets busy during the day. Great food at the concession stand on the beach. Felt at home here and safe location. Beautiful sunsets on the beach. Clean place, all on ground level.

Room Tip: Stayed in room # 1 and it was just as expected, nice and relaxing, will visit here again.

My wife and I are retired and enjoy traveling to active, yet peaceful settings. While having a pool would have been nice, the lack of 'resort-y' activity is a good trade-off. The trade-off gets better considering the short block walk to a terrific beach park and fantastic sunsets. The location also accommodates terrific waterfront and neighborhood biking.
Our unit had a nice cottage feel at a reasonable price and definitely deserves a return visit.

While the location was nice and even sitting on the porch was pleasant and quiet, there is little to add to it all. Plain is very OK with me, but at $160/night for a week, the first night I was greeted by a big "Palmetto bug" aka cockroach on the stove. Fortunately I did not see any more. There is no cleaning or changing of sheets until you leave. Its nice to have privacy, but at the price, a bit of maintenance seems reasonable, beyond leaving dirty towels outside in exchange for new ones. The one caretaker there was pleasant and helpful when asked.

This is a great little place practically across the street from one of the best non-touristy beaches in FL. Nice friendly staff, clean rooms, full kitchen and bath, and great AC at half the price! If you want to enjoy Siesta Beach, but don't want all the tourists, this is the place to go. Nice shopping and dining within walking distance. Sunsets are incredible! I will return if this place is available my next trip to FL.

Room Tip: They only have a few rooms and they are all pretty much the same way.
