I was looking for convenience and a great rate. It is right at the entrance to Longboat Key and it was the least expensive hotel off the Key. The Key is full of condos to rent for 3 days or more but not hotels. Worked very well for our short jaunt. The tub drain was a little slow. Other than... More

We rolled in about 8 pm and checked in easily. It's across from a Publix and behind several restaurants. They did not keep their security doors shut much less locked which was a concern of mine. Staff was adequate as was the room. I did not see bugs, but I didn't inspect under the mattress. Price was about $75 which... More

Not to far from the beaches,but there were no special perks.s.Coffee only from 6:30 to 9:30 and it was so strong we could hardly drink it.Biggest disappointment was the pool closed for repairs and no comp for it.

Sorry to hear you were unhappy with your stay. The pool was closed for construction, and reopened on Oct. 30th 2015. Notices about pool being closed had been posted on our website and at the front desk. Our breakfast is served 6:30 till 9:30 A.M. as posted. Sorry for any inconvenience during your stay, we hope you will give us... More

We Checked in. The reception gave it away what we were heading for. Dull drab smelly. Arrived to room and I broke down in tears. Dirty bedding smelt of damp roof bowing with damp antiquated mouldy etc etc we had to check out. Reception said room was used daily and blamed the state of room on others not using air... More

Probably one of the worst hotels i've ever been at. One of the manager's, pete, Very often, he would not change the sheets after someone checks out, nor change the towels. I heard him saying this to one of the housekeepers, as she tried to change the bed sheets and towels of a room. He just brushed everything off to... More

I had a 5 day reservation at this hotel, however, on entering the office I got a very sickening smell of a cheap room freshener. I decided to remain open minded and went to the room. The air conditioner was struggling to cool the room and the same smell was in the room. I decided that I couldn't even stay... More

I had already booked this hotel for a 3 night stay before I had read any of the reviews. Needless to say I was mortified but didn't have any other choice so we went with it. It honestly wasn't bad at all. It was clean but kind of old but we didn't mind it. Breakfast was limited but we still... More

Would not stay again. Was musty smelling their was roaches in the room and I couldn't wait to leave. Not a lot of choice for breakfast. Did not even have bread for toast. Would not recommend it to anyone. And as far as I am concerned I paid to much for the room.

Stayed for 1 night while travelling through Florida, the room was spacious though bathroom was small but very clean, low budget so happy with what we got free breakfast included. We didn't know the area but it as ok but if you want to be near the. Beach then this hotel is about a 5-10 minute drive away.

Stayed here out of desperation, having changed travel plans. I have found that trying to book a room in Florida during the winter months at the last minute is not a good idea. The place served the purpose as a place to spend one night while traveling. The property is old and dingy. I've stayed in cleaner places. The breakfast... More
