Club Bamboo South
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Bradenton Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2006

My husband, my two sons (3 and 1 year), and I stayed 2 nights at Club Bamboo. After reading that this was previously an Econo Lodge, I became quite nervous. I grew up in Bradenton, and we have a broad range of criteria for the places we stay on the beach. However, Club Bamboo met almost all of them. Nothing terribly fancy, but...It is RIGHT on the beach, and the beach was not at all crowded when we were there. We got a suite which had a seperate bedroom (with a door) and 2 bathrooms...essential when traveling with kids. There was a small kitchenette. The room itself was very big, and nicely decorated...again, nothing fancy, but nice. We could watch the sunsets from our room, but there were no balconies. Better to watch the sunset from the beautiful beach anyway! There was a pool. The only restaurant close by, Sharky's, was closed during our stay. However, there are plenty of other restaurants in close driving distance, or there is a trolley stop right in front of the hotel. There is also a Circle K right across the street which is very conveinent. The price was VERY reasonable for the size room and the location. Not somewhere I would stay for a week, but I would definitely book it again for a long weekend.

This is a condo like hotel no food on premises but many restaurants close by. The pool is clean and nice average size.
It is in the center of the hotel. The sunsets from gulf front are great. We had a big sized eff. with king and an extra bedroom with king for $164 a night. This is an older econ o lodge turned privately owned units rented out. It was clean with plenty of towels.......almost a 3 star. Eat at Beach Bistro for best food of your life, rod and reel pier restaurant best seafood and price. The German restaurant up the steet is very good too. Not a place if u are expecting a spa resort though. Very private for us. Not many amenties. We had to phone for a room not available by the net .
