I stayed here for 3 nights this week. It was a very good experience. The room was nice, except for the carpet was stained which makes it seem a little less clean than it should be. However the pluses outweighed the minus by far. The bed was very comfortable, the hotel was very quiet although almost full. The pool area...

I highly recommend staying at this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, plus the location is perfect for heading over to Siesta Key. Plus, the breakfast is great and although some items stay the same, the main dishes vary daily.

For the most part, staff does not make you feel welcome. Got a question or complaint- they don't seem to care, A stay here is like a preview of assisted living- weird eggs, limited fruit selection, rude kitchen. The positives, nice pool area, convenient (but not that close) to Siesta key.

This is a really nice hotel in the older style of a "motor hotel" as all rooms are entered from an exterior walk-way. But, it is several stories tall and serviced by an exterior elevator. I think this "motel" must have been built some time ago as the rooms seem to be a bit small by today's standards; but you...

Although the hotel was not full nor in any danger of being full, we were assigned a room at the far end of the building -- quite a hike from the elevator to the lobby. We had expected to stay three nights, but left after one because the value was poor and facilities mediocre for the price.

It's a motel, really old and loud cooling system, so it's hard to get a proper sleep. Room is very dark and small. It's not not clean and there are hair everywhere. So we just stay out of the room most of the time and just come back to sleep.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. It is a nice place and very family friendly. The rooms are a little small and dated, but who is spending time in their room in Sarasota? The location of this hotel out ways any negatives of the smaller rooms. You can be at the beaches on Siesta Key, or...
