“Beach Trip on a Budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

If you are interested in visiting Seista Key or Lido Beach on a limited budget then this is the stay for you.

Here is my review broke down in categories:

PARKING
Parking close to the front of the building I felt was limited but seemed fairly safe.

FRONT LOBBY
•Clean and spacious, has a computer work area and a sitting area.
•Free USA Today newspaper and the staff makes fresh chocolate chip cookies every evening, along with fresh coffee 24/7.

ROOMS
•Small bathroom area, would occasionally smell a mild musty odor in our room, but overall was clean.
•Our room was on the 3rd floor pool side of the hotel and when people were loud at the pool you could hear it through the thin windows, otherwise a quiet room.

KITCHEN/BREAKFAST
•The breakfast consisted of waffle makers (regular & SF syrup), hot egg & sausage patties, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, two cold cereals, muffins, bagels and toast along with orange/apple juice.
•NEED larger coffee cups please!!!
•The sausage patties had some gristle in them.
•The yogurt was off brand but didn't have to bad of a taste, otherwise the breakfast was good.

MISC
•Inside the elevator needed modernized.
•Internet WiFi was good.
•Non-smoking hotel.
•Has designated pet-friendly rooms.

LOCATION
•Conveniently located off of Rt 41, the 2nd road to your right straight back.
•Less than 2 miles from a Walmart.
•6 miles to Lido Beach and
11 miles to Siesta Key.
•Quick check in with very helpful and friendly staff.

Mind you, this is not a Ritz-Carlton on the beach but you're not paying anything near that price but still getting a quality stay. If you're on a budget this hotels for you.

Our party of 10 had a great stay at the hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, accommodating, and helpful, especially Debbie B. My room overlooked the pool. Coffee was always available. The wi-fi worked great. The breakfast was very good. Waffles, eggs, pastries, fruit, cereal, and sausage were some of the offerings. Cookies were also put out during the day. Even though it is across from the airport, I never heard a plane. It is very peaceful. I will stay here again if I'm in town, and will recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Can't see hotel from road. It's directly across from main entrance to airport.

We arrived a bit early and the staff was very great. Went in early and the room was great. Had a view overlooking the pool,later that night a batch of fresh chocolate chip cookies was brought out which was the highlight of the night. Breakfast was great. We definitely recommend it!!!

Room Tip: Great hotel for the price!!!

We found this hotel to be clean and nice. Nothing too little or too much. Simply a bed, shower and toilet. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom a bit small. Breakfast was better than the average continental. Fruits, waffels, eggs. Friendly staff.

If you're looking for luxury, you might want to look elsewhere, but if you're looking for a reasonably priced room that's clean and comfortable with polite service, this is the place. When I was first greeted by Charles at the front desk, I knew this was going to be a nice visit...and it was. This gentleman is the epitome of good service. Polite, helpful, and genuinely caring, he made my stay so warm and homey. Thanks, Charles, and thanks Sleep Inn.

really nice rooms for the price. Ive paid over $100 and not received the value that I found at this sleep inn. Really close to airport and within a few miles of great restaurants and shopping on university parkway. great experience.
