I can not recommend this place. The web site attracted me, but should have been alerted upon approaching the front desk. The location on the SR was not bad, but it was in a run down area. not a comfortable feel to the place. Strictly an economy quick stay place.

This hotel is a complete scam, they use hotels.com to lure people into their horrid smelling, ant-infested dump, and then if you don't like the condition of the hotel/room, they refuse to refund your money. The Manager is a joke, he told me to call Hotels.com and "take it up with them".

If you are going to Ruskin and need a room, this is not a bad choice. The room was clean, the bed was not bad and we didn't see any bugs! LOL! Check in was not difficult. We didn't stay for the continental breakfast, so I can't comment on that!

I could not sleep in this place. The A\C is rigged to turn off every 4 minutes and back after 2 minutes. Try to turn off the AUTO setting of the fan but couldnt. They have it like this to save energy. The room never got to a decent teperatture. To make things worst, they have the worst pillows ever....

Stayed at the Ruskin Inn for a week in August 2015. The staff was very nice and pleasant and accommodating. The hot breakfast was okay, not 4 star or anything, but edible. The pool was gross! Cloudy and full of debris. The hallways are warm and humid. The free internet access is a complete joke. So bad, you barely download...

My 3rd time staying here and as always, was pleased. The room was spotless, staff was courteous and helpful. Its always so nice to have an uncluttered beach for the kids to run around on. Almost want to keep this secret to myself!

We stayed in the Ruskin Hotel in March, 2015. I had seen on the internet that it was a Holiday Inn but apparently it was an old ad because it is locally owned now. It was a disappointment. The choices in Ruskin are very limited and I would recommend driving a little in order to avoid staying here. We had...
