“Very good service and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

The room is very nice, the breakfast is delicious, e specially the hot cakes, is made in front of you. The pool and hot tub is good. I came with my family for one night stay, but is nice to stay for all weekend. Is pretty close the Siesta key beach and beside of Red lobster Restaurant.

I liked this property because it is clean, well kept, modern and has a friendly staff. Granite vanities and shower enclosures, nothing fancy but solid. It had small fridge, comfortable beds, good free hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, pancakes, etc.) in self serve mode. Weight room had some decent aerobic equipment but a poor old rusty multipurpose weight machine that should be retired. The staff, especially front desk was very helpful and friendly. I would have given 5 stars for service had the staff responded to my request to lower the workout room temp from 75 degrees (locked thermostat) which was warmer than the lobby, to 68 degrees. It was an uncomfortable workout and no fans. Plus three day here and no one has restocked the exercise room with towels. We were here with a soccer team for a tournament and the one washer/dryer on the premises got a real workout! I would have given the sleep quality 5 stars if the pillows had been as good as the beds (if you are someone who brings their own pillow, do so) although they give a nice 4 pillows per bed. Overall I give this property high marks and would return.

Room Tip: The pool is very close to the east end of the hallway rooms, if you want more quiet get a room on th...

Stayed here in June. Nice and smooth check-in, very accommodating and pleasant. Nice breakfast area with an abundance of breakfast items that were fresh and hot. Great start to the day. The rooms were big and comfortable with very nice linens. Clean bathroom and nice pool area. Definately worth the money spent to stay here 3 nights. I would go back again when in the Bradenton area.

We arrived on a Saturday in the middle of a weather storm. The computers were knocked out. The staff continued serving guests without flaws and hesitation. Needed to purchase a few items from the Sundry and yet the computer was still down. After numerous attempts to pay after my stay they would refuse my payment simply because they are truly first class and second to none. I would definitely stay again when in Bradenton. The room was comfortable, clean & classy. 2 thumbs up to this incredible staff who served us Saturday & Sunday Night.

Stayed here while in town for a le com graduation.This hotel was chosen out of conveince to the convention center. The rooms were large with a microwave and small refrigerator. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was provided in lobby,it was adaquate. There was a small pool,the towel bin was empty.the hotel was fine for our needs.it was very inexpensive.

Spent one night. One word, spotless. Hotel is superbly maintained. Great front desk attention. Comfortable, big and really clean room and bath. Breakfast was just outstanding. Even trying, can't figure out one complain. Recommended.
