There is no question that the location of The Beach on Longboat Key is spectacular, situated just steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. And, we really appreciated being able to relax on the readily available beach chairs. However, we were disappointed with the size and layout of our room. We stayed in a first-floor studio which had a fairly uncomfortable Murphy bed that pulled out in the kitchen. The small TV was located on the same wall as the headboard so it was impossible to lay in bed and watch TV. It was also a bit disturbing to be in bed and blinded by the refrigerator light if opened. The small dining table was located at the entrance to the room, right across from the bathroom. Since it was Murphy bed, there were no nightstands or tables to keep a glass of water or a phone or an alarm clock. And, there were very few other places to set anything down, except for the kitchen counter. When the bed was open, it was extremely awkward trying to navigate to the bathroom or anywhere. The room was kept very clean but the second day, instead of towels being hung in the bathroom and condiments set in the kitchen, the cleaning crew left all of the towels and other items in a tied-up plastic bag on the dining table. Again, you can't beat the location, but the interior was left to be desired.
