“Quaint family stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This resort lives up to the previous reviews. It is reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Amazing movie selections for free. Really comfy beds. There were 14 in our group and the tiki hut was awesome! Used the grill for a crab leg and shrimp feast. Grocery is close and beach is just a short stroll. Have already recommended to a friend coming this summer. Job well done folks. Job well done. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: Rm 120 is a little dark but other 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom suites were beautiful and newly renovated.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We were looking for a stay near the beach and came across this motel. The website seemed very promising. Reality is that the rooms are smaller and feel very crowded.
Reception on arrival was very sharp and efficient. On departure totally disinterested.
The noise levels were not good, but the noise did not come from guests. We had a day in as my wife felt unwell and were subject to continual banging, drilling, electric saws. There was no effective soundproofing with the staff workshop/store next to our unit. Then the maid trolleys and trash bins rumbled backwards and forwards.
The motel is clean and will appeal to many. Not for us.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

Stayed here for one night. Great location and nice rooms. They are a bit small, but as there is outdoor space, we didn’t mind. 2 minute walk to the beach. Nice grill and outdoor seating available. Room was clean and updated.

Staff is fantastic very accomodating, GPS had a little difficulty finding this resort. Staff directed us.
Room was updated and very clean. Beach was quite nice. Pool was very inviting as the weather was cool during our stay. Close proximity to restaurants and grocery store.

Web site pictures are very misleading. Rooms much smaller than portrayed. Internet connection dropped frequently. People very nice but service no better than average. Good location but I would not return here.

After a week of visiting the in-laws in Naples, we tacked a two-night stay at the Sara Sea onto the trip as a little getaway for the two of us. We got one of the few second floor rooms overlooking the pool. Although compact, it was perfect for a couple with a little granite kitchen with breakfast bar, comfy bed, sofa and TV, and a nicely updated and spacious bath with shower stall. You could live quite comfortably in this mini-apartment for a week with its full sized fridge and stove and plenty of storage space. There was a small balcony with two chairs and a table. It's an easy walk to a beautiful beach. The grounds are impeccably maintained and have a fun look that's reminiscent of a mini-theme park, complete with a tiki hut. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a breakfast vendor outside in the morning that made delicious and healthy food to order. We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: The second floor room was very private and had a tree-house atmosphere!

My family and I LOVE this resort! Its in a great location with shopping and grocery stores near by, not to mention lots of great restaurants too. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room are clean and cozy. The beds! WOW the beds! I slept so well in the king bed that we ended up booking another night. The best thing about this resort is how close it is to the beach. Its a short 5 minute walk from the office and in my opinion its the best beach in Sarasota!
The first time we stayed at Tropical Shores(November 2010) we fell in love and now we come back every year for a week. Its become a tradition in our family!
Thank you Tropical Shores for have such an amazing place to go on vacation!
