I was concerned about our recent two night stay here after reading some of the negative reviews. However, it turned out to be better than expected. The room was small, but clean. Lobby was nice. Breakfast was just ok, but it was free so.can't really complain about that. Beds were not great. Thin, lumpy mattresses. It is very close to siesta key beach. There are no major chain hotels on the beach strip. The beach is beautiful and the five minute drive over the bridge was really no big deal. I found it funny that the maid would not make one of the beds in our room because of 'personal belongings' on the bed. The personal belonging consisted of about two inches of the end of a phone charger which was plugged in on the nightstand next to the bed. I don't need the bed made, just found it a touch overboard. Never had that issue at any hotel I have ever stayed at. Lastly, management was very helpful in shipping a left behind item to our next destination. I really appreciated that. Would I stay here again? Probably not but it really is not nearly as bad as some of the reviews suggest.
