“VERY NICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

I'm not sure where this review will fall, as while we were there, this property turned from Holiday Inn Express to Best Western Plus. And it is a PLUS! It was just renovated and is a very nice property. Pretty grounds, flat screen tv, new carpet, yummy breakfast, free popcorn(cute popcorn stand)in lobby, washer/dryers, comfy beds, and it was quiet.
It made our 3 day stay there very enjoyable.

Thank you for your positive comments and we are glad to have met your expectations. The property has recently finished major guest room and public space renovations and re-branded to a Best Western Plus. We hope your review will encourage others to see what we've accomplished.

This "hotel" is NOT on Siesta Key but a world away over the bridge. It has a pawn shop and strip mall next door and is a very old run-down property on a major thoroughfare. Beware, Hotwire ranks it as a 3-star property. Only in their wildest dreams but they are cashing in on its proximity to Siesta Key. Equivalent to Motel 6 with a pretty good breakfast.

Room Tip: Go someplace else. The North side has view of pawn shop; the South side a trailer park. Take your...
