“Ok for the price”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had made a reservation thru Choicehotels.com and called the day of arrival to confirm them as we were going to be arriving late. When we arrived the requests were met. The soundproofing from the outside ( I75) was very good. Breakfast was ok and the room and hotel were clean. The pool area is small but in good condition.

The price listed on your reservation is less than the price you will pay. Thay add a surcharge and claim it is legal because they have a sign at check-in desk saying so. It's still more affordable than others in the area. We used it as a base of operations while going to both St Pete Beach and Anna Maria Island, as well as shopping. much more affordable than staying beachside in April. but for that savings you have to put up with some annoyances. more odd noises than most hotels, coming from both the equipment and the other guests. We had to move because of broken A/C and were offered a free upgrade. The new room was bigger and nicer, but we weren't told the free upgrade was only for 1 night after that we were charged the upgraded rate.

Needed a room in the Bradenton/Sarasota area close to services without paying high beach prices. So booked the Sleep Inn based on positive TripAdvisor reviews. Priced to be an excellent choice.

PROS - river views, only $80/night including hit breakfast, right across highway from Ellenton Outlet Mall, Woody's River Roo seafood restaurant/bar just 300 feet away on the river, clean modern showers, comfy bed (not Hampton Inn but good), fridge and micro, pool overlooking river, Queen beds. An Applebee's and McDonald's 500 feet away.

CONS - can't really think of any except it's 15-20 mins to beach.

SUGGESTIONS - request a river view room.

Although close to I-75 no noise. Double glazed windows maybe?

Would stay here again anytime. Two nights for the price of 1 night at at a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn.

A near 4 star property for 2 star prices!

We needed a place near Bradenton and found everything booked up with events and Spring Breakers. They charged $132. a night...and that was Senior Rate, but we were desperate. This place is on the north side of the Manatee River. Other guests have commented on the view of the river, which is probably nice unless you are one of the 50% of guests on the side of the hotel that has a view of the parking lot. We and other guests complained about two things: 1. the smell. According to the desk, until 5 months ago, the third floor was the smokers floor. Despite attempts by management to clean and spray, the rooms and halls still stink of stale smoke. The room was clean, but very small. I'm not sure where the "suites" are in this property, but we didn't see any, and another couple who arrived late and got the smallest room in the house said that there was hardly room to walk around in it. 2. The breakfast. As a seasoned traveler, I'm used to eggy things that look like pancakes and rubbery sausage patties, but here, these items are served in a cramped little alcove that has too many tables and chairs and guests bumping into one another. The congestion at breakfast was aggravated this morning by a housekeeper trying to mop the floor in the breakfast area with a bucket of bleach water. Would you like more juice or chlorine?

Maybe I'm being too fussy, but when I read other reviews citing the "rich breakfast" and calling this property "a great value", I wondered if we reviewed the same property. At $75 a night, O.K., but at nearly twice that, it's way overpriced.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the river, its beautiful!!!

We stayed here on 3/4/13 on a whim. The hotel is right off the highway and near a lot of resturants. The bar next door "woodys" closed at 9pm, but Applebees was open. The room itself was very clean, and the bathroom was modern. I will say that this Sleep Inn went above my expectations. The check in was a breeze. Very enjoyable and would stay again. Make sure you sign up for the priority rewards for this hotel and book through thier website. Book twice and the third time is free :) Enjoy!
