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!

Well we were far too tired after travelling from Orlando airport so we called in here as we were desperate! But have to say we arrived very late and we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady we booked all 6 of us in We only stated about 6 hours but the beds were clean and the air conditioning... More

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.... More

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... More

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... More

There are limited choices of hotels/motels in the Ruskin area. Between three choices with similar revues and price, we chose Ruskin Inn. We could see some of the criticisms leveled and justified. Our room closet carpet was damp and musty, fresh towels not left after the room was cleaned, mediocre breakfast offerings, old stained upholstered chairs in the breakfast room.... More

The owners are extremely rude! They will wake up up and come in your room when you have the Do Not Disturb on. Did it to me twice. Pool is dirty and they treat you like they are doing you a favor by letting you pay them to stay. I'll sleep in my car before going back.

This place had what we needed on short notice. Clean comfortable beds, pet friendly, felt safe. Carpets were dirty & musty and the place was a bit run down. Breakfast was just ok. Night staff just ok. Would stay again if had to.

What can I say about Ruskin? This little hotel was formerly a Holiday Inn. It's no wonder they lost their franchise. It's musty, dirty, and not nearly worth the money. Not to mention the complimentary breakfast was still frozen. No thanks!
