The WannaB Inn? I think it may end up being a stunning destination, but it feels very much in transition to me. While there for 5 days numerous palms were planted, and the pool was being renovated. A bit of an inconvenience, but obviously in the long run the guests will reap the rewards.
There are many positives and let me cover those first. Location, location, location. It is absolutely stunning. You have the beautiful Lemon Bay on one side, the great beach and oceanfront on the other. We were in 131 of Conch Courtyard, and literally walked out onto the sand. And there are zero crowds, noise or distractions- simply it can’t be beat.
Accommodations? Well I think the unit had been renovated. But cheaply. It still felt like 1960s. Now I hear all the charm of “Old Florida” but sometimes feel it’s used as an excuse for out-dated or cheap finishes. And really this is not a cheap place to visit. So pretty ordinary accommodation, plus old TV sets and no servicing of the units at all. Then you’re asked to empty the dustbins and do the dishes before you leave?
Lastly, at night there is not much to do on Manasota Key. So a TV is necessary. Well, despite numerous guest complaints it took 3 nights to get it sorted. That’s just not good enough. And just to mention, check-in too was disorganised. Curt and having a bad hair day obviously. Couldn’t find the booking, not sure if the room was ready, and made to feel as if you were inconveniencing the young lady.
Will I be back? MMMMMMMMMMM… I think probably. It’s just such a beautiful setting, you forgive the niggles. But hopefully management will do more day-to-day managing once the renovations are complete.
