[Summary at bottom] Wow. One of the worst places I've ever stayed in (and I've backpacked around Europe paying €10 a night for accommodation). I'm actually annoyed that this business made money off me. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were burdening the staff member there by checking in. This process took about 15 - 20... More

Stayed 2 nights for a girls weekend getaway. Booked this super cheap, $40/night 2 queen size beds. We were only at the hotel to sleep & shower. Not a great area. Breakfast buffet was a few danishes and coffee. It worked for us since we were barely there, but if you want quality go somewhere else!

This is definitely not one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The decor is pretty outdated and overall not of the best quality. Service was pretty good but the staff at the front desk could have been a bit friendlier. All in all this is not a hotel I will book again.

Now, we needed overnight stay in Sarasota. Since there were lots of delays in the Midwest that day, our normal choices were full. Ramada, Hyatt , Holiday Inn, etc. Used... More

First I asked for a pool view due to having a young child to watch. I was denied a pool view room at time of check in, with only 4 cars at the motel. Second, the lights did not work in the bathroom or entrance area in unit 314. They sent a dirty employee to try to fix the problem.... More
