“Quaint and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Clean and convenient, with friendly staff. Very reasonable, close to shopping and restaurants. Will definitely stay there again! Light continental breakfast only, however, fridge and microwave in room with Publix and Walmart just down the road! Can't beat that!

Dear sa2smith,
Thanks for posting your thoughts! We have added some bananas and yogurt to our breakfast, which might help a little for those who were suffering from a wild muffin/danish sugar rush. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Andrea

Our family stayed just one night on the way to our vacation destination. The beds were comfortable and the room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly. We had good coffee and muffins from the lobby. We would stay again and recommend to others. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants.

I chose this hotel solely base on location and was not expecting much. I surprisingly arrived tow hours early and two hours before check in. I went in to just take care of the paperwork and the told me my rom was ready and I could go in already of I wanted. I found nice size room that was extremely clean. The office people are so nice. Anything you may need they are more then happy to assist you with. There are many paces to eat within walking distance and a short drive, I would have no problem staying here again,

My husband and my 16 month old daughter stayed here for about 6 weeks while he worked at the port nearby. I've stayed at many hotels in the past for my husbands travel with his job, and I can honestly say this place ranks #1 on my list. I've never paid a weekly rate and had room service every single day I was booked. That alone was amazing! I got new wash rags, towels, hand towels, soap, and shampoo every day of our stay without requesting them. The room was very clean, and there were no stains or blemishes on any towels or sheets. No bugs! Friendly staff! Peaceful nights, even in the busy summer season. Very clean pool! Enough parking for the size of the hotel. Great rates! In my hotel experience I've never got such a great rate for what I received in return. Every place needs to be like this! Keep up the good work!

I stayed 4 nights here while my son was at the Under Armor Pirate City Baseball camp nearby. I was looking for very inexpensive since I was by myself and wasn't going to be in the room all that much. But the room itself was a great surprise! King size bed that appeared pretty new, no lumps or sags to be found. Very clean bathroom, towels and linens were exceptional white. No beat-up old stuff. Biggest surprise I needed to receive a couple of work related faxes and unlike some hotels big name hotels that charge for faxes the front desk just left me a message when they came and no fees were added. Very small breakfast area with just danish that I didn't use. Instead I went to the gas station mini mart a couple hundred yards away and brought prepackaged cereal bowls and milk to have in my room before I left for the day. Even closer was a McDonalds and within 1/2 mile a Cracker Barrel and WaffleHhouse. The pool area was small and kind of in the middle of the parking lot but was well maintained and used by many of the guest. Nights were quiet. The hotel was generally full at night. This is not a hotel if looking to go to the beach from here as they are about 35 - 40 minutes away. For a similar trip I would definitly stay here again.

We stayed here for one night in May. It is certainly not luxury accommodations and don't let the excellent reviews lead you to believe it is, but for the price you get plenty in return. We have stayed at this motel chain in other parts of the country and thus far they have all proved to be clean, well maintained and reasonably priced. Bradenton's was no exception.

Our room was very affordable. The staff is incredibly welcoming, helpful and super nice. Check in and check out was a breeze. The room was a tad small but very clean. It had a microwave and fridge that worked great as did the AC unit and the updated flat panel television. The room also has a small "goodie" bag waiting for you with snacks and information on things to do in the area. I thought this was a nice personal touch and my kids got a kick out of it.

The bathroom was small, but clean and adequate for our needs. The beds were comfortable and the mattresses clean (they appeared to be near new). The sheets were acceptable but the towels were a bit on the skimpy side. However, this is to be expected from a motel in this price range and additional were received upon our request.

This is a two story motel and there did not appear to be an elevator. However, our lower level room request was waiting for us upon our arrival. The hotel is conveniently located close to the interstate, yet quiet. There is ample parking in a well lit lot. There are lots of places to eat nearby and a Wal-Mart not far. The motel does have a lovely pool. However, it is not heated. Not generally a problem in Florida but we could not use it while there due to the unseasonably cool weather not allowing for it to heat up naturally. It appeared to be clean and well maintained.


This motel is not the Ritz Carlton or even a Holiday Inn. However, it is very clean, can boast about super friendly staff, quiet/convenient location and the VERY affordable price make this property an excellent place to stay. I would highly recommend it and plan to stay here again on future trips through Florida.

Safe travels.

Room Tip: There is no elevator in this multi level motel. If the stairs are an issue, request a room on the lo...

Dear KinColorado,
WOW! Thank you so much for your comments. You have described our property in great detail, and I really appreciate your thoughts. We are definitely not a Ritz or Holiday Inn. We feel we are like a McDonalds rather than an Outback Steakhouse. Sometimes, all you need is a cheap cheeseburger and a clean restroom to make your day. (Especially on a long trip.)
You are correct that we do not have an elevator, and that the downstairs rooms have new beds and new televisions. Downstairs rooms are usually a few dollars more, and we are happy to reserve them in advance.
We hope to see you again on your next trip to the Bradenton/Sarasota area!!
Andrea

Although this is billed as a "value" hotel, don't let that label fool you. Everything about this place is truly first class. Clean accommodations, great service, and always a little something extra.

I spent a few nights there a few months ago and was so impressed, I'm booking a whole week there to stay while my girls and I vacation in the area..

Thanks Andrea!
