“Good hotel,close to almost everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I traveled from Mexico City to Sarasota,and when I arrived to this hotel I liked it.
It's well located,really close to a supermarket and close to dinning places.
The only problem I found was that there were roaches in my room.
Breakfast is included.

For the price we paid the hotel room was not all that great but that could be my set of expectations. Staff were polite, pool clean, overall clean. My room however smelled like cigarette, my family and I thankfully had perfume and we were able to spray the room, the AC did not cool the room enough for 4 people. The shower curtain was a bit dangy looking and the shower stopper was rusted and broke.

as title states try it and see if I am to critical. The manager Jessica was very Pleasant, helpful and Professional. For me she went out of her way t address my concerns, if they were not met it wasn't because she didn't try she is only one person and can only do so much. The decor of room was acceptable, however the room cleaning service was inconsistent. and would not clean room at times. I stayed there for close to 2 weeks as I was placed in an unexpected predicament. I will say the location is good with some restaurants and a grocery store very close, also a top rated Hospital is a block away as is Fire/Rescue protection. The Beach is a 5-10 minute drive and bus transportation is easily accessible.

This is a very good hotel if you are traveling for any reason to Sarasota. It right in the middle of town and close to everything. It is located right on the main thoroughfare running North and South.

I really hate to give a poor review on anything but I believe that there is always something that can be done to remedy these situations. When we entered the room the smell was horrible. We had to open up some air fresheners and leave for a while just to be able to stand it. There were also a couple roaches, one that came out of the water dispenser in the coffee maker. The sheets appeared clean, we had clean towels.

I know it was a less expensive hotel but they still should be on top of the bug situation as well as having a pleasant room to sleep in.

Here on memorial day weekend, needed a room until a resort had an opening. Checked in, room is a motel type, old single pane windows, door that had to be slammed shut. I figured one night, will be OK since I was only sleeping there. Went to dinner, came back, went to clean up and noticed a bug on the carpet, I killed it, goggled cockroach, it looked exactly like it so I assume that it what it was. Put the bags back in the car, told the front desk, a nice older gentlemen offered another room, but I opted to shell out the money and drive across town since only 3 hotels had ANY rooms left at 11pm.
