“Hotel was outdated... Rooms need new carpet, paint...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Hotel was outdated... Rooms need new carpet, paint, bedding. Website stated there was a fitness center and heated pool. No fitness center found at the hotel. The pool was very cold. The hot tub barely had enough water to run the jets.
The lady stocking the breakfast area was very nice and helpful. Staff cleaning the rooms not so much. One day, they didn't ever enter our room to clean! There were 4 of us in the room and when they did change the towels, they only left 3 towels everyday despite us reminding them there were 4 of us.

Dear Christina G,

We appreciate your feedback very much. We apologize for your disappointing stay. We stand behind the comfort and quality of our guests’ experiences on our property. At this time, we have several renovations and updates slated for implementation. We admit that some of our features and amenities need to be updated and we hope that you will give our property another chance when those updates have been put in place. We are confident that you will have a satisfactory experience upon your next visit. We also pride ourselves on the skill and dedication of our staff. We are pleased that you had a positive experience with our breakfast attendant. Our housekeepers diligently work to assure the quality of the rooms but will not provide service to a room that has a “do not disturb” sign on the door. Our front desk staff will gladly accommodate any special requests for turnover service and have very effective communication protocols with our housekeeping and maintenance staff. Please accept our sincere apology for your underwhelming stay and we hope to exceed your expectations when you visit us again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed for just one night so I don't have much to go on. The good was the staff when I asked for a late checkout because we were running a 5K they were more than happy to accomodate us. Also the lady that worked the breakfast area was really nice we came back from our race right as she was packing everything up but she allowed us a few extra minutes to grab a bite. The bad was a malfunctioning toilet and ants in our room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate our staff members and work with them on a daily basis to affirm our continuing commitment to customer satisfaction and quality assurance. We take pride in the skills of our maintenance staff members and will promptly respond to any maintenance issue that is reported to us. Our property is regularly checked and treated for any possibility of pest invasion and we are proud to report that we do not have issues with pest infestation. We however cannot preclude the possibility that stray insects may find their way into the property as is the case with most facilities that are established in a tropical climate such as ours in Sarasota, Florida. We apologize for those issues and hope that you will consider us again for your accommodation needs in Sarasota.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This hotel is a little hard to find, through a Burger King parking lot, but all in all, this hotel was PERFECT to visit family staying on Siesta Key. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, the woman stocking the food for breakfast was very sweet and accommodating (bringing food out for people and children when they wanted it). Our room was HUGE, clean, quiet and the bed was ooohhhh so soft.

Unfortunately, the weather did not agree with us, a tad chilly, so we were not able to enjoy the pool or hot tub. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The location is great to go shopping, eating, and visiting !! :)

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was quiet and secluded.
