We needed an inexpensive place to stay while visiting our daughter so didn't need luxury accommodations. We were pleased at how clean the room was and well-maintained. The pool area was lit up at night and had a bar. We were close to Sharky's which is a fun place to visit. Beach was about ten minutes drive away.

Average hotel for the price. Location is fair. Was given the impression that the beach was in walking distance and it really is not. You will have to bring your own chairs as the hotel does not have any to loan its guests for the beach

I booked this place because of the reviews...never again, this place is gross! The room cleanliness was borderline, sheets were uncomfortable and the soap for the shower smelled awful! At 6am the garbage trucks were in full force! Never again will I try to save money and compromise on a room! Checked out and am going to a nice boutique...

Everything was great, except there are large speed bumps in the parking lot and when the trucks go over them early n the morning very load and wakes you up. Should remove speed bumps. Great tourist attractions.

Nice hotel in a good location to visit Siesta Key without the extra expense of actually staying on Siesta Key. The breakfast was especially complete and good for a hotel with nice clean seating. Menu changed each day a little. Oatmeal and yogurt toppings especially good. Pool, hot tub and outdoor snack and bar clean and nice. Beds not the...

Great staff, beautiful pool area. Breakfast was good with cookies at 4:00pm. Coffee served all day and popcorn was a nice touch. Location was perfect for all beaches, restaurants, and sightseeing adventures. Would highly recommend this property. Harry's Bar & Grill on the same premises. Awesome food!!!

When I first saw this place online I thought it was a newer hotel but, once I got there I could tell that it was older than I originally thought. It has undergone a few renovations in its time and has been kept up quite well! I was in room 407 on the top floor and was quite pleased when...
