Rooms were very clean, breakfast was nice (eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles, baked goods). Quiet and not super busy and right behind a cracker barrel! I stayed for only a couple days but with a fridge and microwave in room could stay longer :)

So we came here for a weekend for soccer. I really was not expecting much from this hotel but when we arrived the service was incredible. The checkin was seamless and the rooms were impeccable and renovated. Clean, and modern. Would highly recommend this hotel again, very close to restaurants and easy to get to the freeways and major roadways.

Found the property on Trivago and got the room through Booking.com for a very reasonable price. We were only in town one night for a wedding on Anna Maria Island. The hotel was very nice, exceptionally clean, quiet and fairly easy to find. The room was very clean and welcoming. Air was set to comfortable temperature so we did not... More

The Manager Chris Sears and his desk staff, including concierges Jeremy and Allen, were very attentive and caring individuals. I have never encountered this level of kindness and compassion embodied by an entire hotel staff. Mr. Sears and Jeremy made themselves available at all times to my daughter and I during a difficult situation, without ever having to ask. They... More

This is a revision of a previous review. I stayed there with my wife for our 2nd anniversary. When we arrived, the staff had put roses in the room at no charge, I guess since I had said we were there for our anniversary. The room was quite clean and for the most part quiet, except one barking dog. The... More
