There is a Publix grocery store across the street and with a microwave and fridge in the room its perfect. My wife... More

Had breakfast and a pool. Free wifi worked perfect. The bed was cozy and the room was comfy and very clean. Arielle at the front desk was very accommodating to us in helping us extend our stay and helping us with our packages and phone calls. I would recommend this place to everyone.

This is my second time to visit Sarasota and we couldn't have been happier with the hotel we selected. This location is convenient to the shops and restaurants downtown as well as the world famous Siesta Key Beach. We prefer to book a mid-grade room in order to save a little money for excursions and entertainment. This older hotel is... More

A friend found this "deal" for us. Location was good but place is run down & needs updating. It is next to a Publix so we did breakfast in our room, not much else around for walking. Would not stay here again. Spend a little more & enjoy yourselves!
