“loved it at Queens Gate”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We stayed in the King cottage #10 for a week and a half in Jan/Feb. The cottage was perfect, it had a comfy King bed, nice beachy decor, updated bathroom and was very clean and fresh. It was right beside the pool with a nice patio. The pool was perfect temperature with a nice deck area with plenty of loungers, well kept grounds, a shuffleboard and the beach just a few steps away across the street.
Kathy and Tim and Lynn took great care of us, they are awesome friendly people and make you feel at home.
We spent a lot of time in the mornings and evenings sitting in the gazebo, it is very comfortable and a perfect spot to read and visit. The internet signal was a bit weak in the cottage but is great on the patio and in the gazebo. It was a little cool for a few days and as a student I had to take work with me, and Kathy made sure that there was fuel in the patio heaters there so I could do my homework in cozy comfort, that was soo appreciated!
Can't wait to come back!

We stayed at the Queen's Gate for our nephew's destination wedding and definitely recommend it. When we arrived a little early, Tim checked us in and made us feel very comfortable and welcome at the hotel. When we got into our room, it smelled like it was actually cleaned with cleaning products, not just a quick vacuum and sheet change between guests! We stayed in one of the poolside cottages and loved having the kitchen and extra bedroom and space. The beds were really comfortable. I'd recommend the cottages if you have more than 2 people in your room. Tim made sure we had everything we needed several times during our visit and was so nice to our kids. Kathy was very nice too. It is right across the street from the beach and there were plenty of towels, chairs and beach toys to borrow to take over to the beach. There were also pool toys for the kids to play with in the heated pool. There were a few other groups from the wedding also staying at the Queen's Gate and there was a nice gazebo we could sit under and visit and a grassy area for the kids to run around on. The free island shuttle stops across the street too. We thought it was a great beachy casual hotel for a fun island trip and are glad we picked the Queen's Gate to stay at.

We made a last-minute decision to take a New Year's trip to Anna Maria from Indy. Although we knew of the Queen's Gate Resort from previous trips, we had never stayed there. As others have noted, this place does not have the brassy décor and neatly-trimmed but off-putting hedgerows one finds on Longboat Key and further South. It is clean, compact, quaint, and friendly. Then there is Kathy--always ready to help with things forgotten. The pergola and pool are hidden gems in the back.

Room Tip: Try for the cottage. If you are getting a room, higher numbers are further from the road. I think...

We've been staying at the Queen's Gate each year since 2003 and have never been disappointed. Each year, we've found that the intimate resort retains its Old Florida charm while adding modern amenities and a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. The King Cottage is particularly attractive, and the resort manager, Kathy Wooten, is always ready and willing to make the stay super-pleasant. The grounds are spacious (complete with a gazebo), the pool is heated, the beach is just across Gulf Drive, and the cottage itself is perfect: a great room with a king-size bed, a small bedroom with a queen-size bed, a fully stocked kitchen and dining area and a reserved parking space. And it's pet-friendly! If you're looking for the high-rise glitz of Sarasota and Longboat Key, you won't find it here. But if you want a relaxing, charming, super-friendly place that's convenient to wonderful restaurants, this is your spot.

We used to stay at a different place, but ended up at Queen's Gate because that place is being renovated. We'll definitely return to Queen's Gate next time. Perfect location, and all the amenities you need. The heated pool is great, and the trolley stops practically in front of the resort. Kathy, the manager, was SO nice, and took the time to show us around and how to find everything we needed. Can't wait to go back!

Lovely manager on the front desk. Really helpful and friendly. I imagine if you returned year on year that she would become a friend. We stayed with family in 2 separate rooms at the front of the hotel and the rooms all had cool terraces with rocking chairs. A few updates could be made to the inside of the rooms but I think that they were trying to create a cottage type feel. Close to beach across the road and about a 10 min walk to the centre of town. You can also use their seats for the beach that were in a room in the grounds. Nice touch. Loved the pergola with chairs and tables, I think this is an update from a few years ago when we looked to stay at the hotel then. Perfect for a short stay in Bradenton.

We love it here. Pool out the back door, beach out the front. We try to spend a week or two here every year. They allow small pets, which is why we originally came here, but we come back because of the location, the people, and the accommodations. You'll love it!
