“2nd visit-still room for improvements but clean.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This is our second visit to the Bentley. Our first visit was in the main building, this one in the back building. I think I rated the main building/first visit over a year ago Very good.

Pros: Very clean both visits. Reasonably priced. Free breakfast(average) free wifi(not secure network though) Good locationsl for beaches and Venice area.

Cons: No elevators, no curtains-just blinds=no privacy first floor. VERY poor lighting in rooms. No clothes hangars. We also had a lot of bugs, flying gnats and other critters. And, odd complaint but toiletries were lovely but couldn't get them out of the bottles!

Suggestions for management: Curtains and better lighting are a must. Spray for bugs-I know we are in Florida but this can be prevented because I have stayed in many hotels in the area. Hang some colorful pics on the wall. The all grey contemporary look is a little depressing and cold-almost prison like.

If you are female traveling alone DO NOT stay in back building-a little too secluded to be returning alone at night.

Will I stay here again? probably not-Hotel Indigo in Sarasota is still my fav and more money, yes- but you get what you pay for!

We stayed here for a wedding in Sarasota and it was a perfect location. Most of the other guests were also going to the same wedding so we could meet up by the pool and relax when there was free time between events. It was quiet and comfortable and I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was a bit basic, but the restaurant in the hotel is great for lunch.

Room Tip: As for a poolside room on the first floor. 218 is great as it has a nice palm tree in front of the...

The rooms were beautifully done, with top grade furnishings and bath. The breakfast was excellent for a continental one. The pool area is spacious and again top grade. The Tiki bar near the pool is very inviting. All in all a great buy for the reasonable rates. It is not right in Sarasota but worth the short drive.

Thank you so much for great comments on our hotel! Bentley's is centrally located to both Sarasota and Venice which is a short drive to either one! We also have shuttle services that take our guest to Siesta Key Beach (Voted #1 Beach) and Casey Key Beach. We hope to see you again in the future!

Newly remodeled room was great, comfortable bed, heated pool. Had dinner at the resturant, was very good, Breakfast was included which was a surprise but a bit crowded. Friendly staff. Stayed around the back in room 273 but would of liked a view. Construction still going on but not a bother. Definately will go back there, Met some great people from Fonda New York.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Bentley’s! Did you know that we just opened our ‘On the Beach’ property which is located right on the lovely Casey Key Beach! It’s just 4.5 miles south from Bentley’s Main Location! It still includes all the accommodations Bentley’s Boutique Hotel offers! We hope to see you again for another great stay at Bentley’s in the future!

We stayed at the Bentley Boutique Hotel in mid-March 2013. The room was clean & nice, but was very dim, even with every light turned on. If more than one person wanted to read before bed, it was not possible because of the one desk lamp serving the bedside table. The heated pool and
tiki bar were fun & the food was good. One final thing that was irritating was that the web description AND the description in their in-room services book both stated that they provided
shuttle service to shops, some beaches, and other local sites. Two different desk people told us that they only provided shuttle service to Siesta Key and nothing else. We flew into town & initially
didn't rent a car because we were counting on this shuttle service. So we had an added expense that was an unwelcome surprise.

Thank you for your comments on our boutique hotel. We apologize for the misunderstanding and confusion but we do only have a shuttle to Siesta Key Beach and Nokomis Beach. But we are centrally located between Sarasota and Venice Shops. We valve your business and hope that you consider us for another stay at Bentley's Boutique Hotel.

This hotel is definetly work in progress, the room we stayed in (272) was totally remodeled and very nice, clean and comfortable. The shower was a little odd, it was partially enclosed with glass, half opened. Not sure how the floor will hold up over time. The free breakfast was nice, but the lack of seating was a bit irritating. The beds were very comfortable and the "clean friendly" remote control was really cool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't like was the hotel is divided into two separate buildings, I felt like I was in the "cheap" section, had to walk in the rain to get to the breakfast area, but upon peaking in some of the 320.00 a night rooms, not sure why they were so expensive...I guess because they each had their own name? All in all this is a nice hotel, Casey Key is only about 4 miles away and the price of 129.00 a night for two double beds was very reasonable. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

The Virage is a recently renovated building that offers a classic Florida drive up. You have been one of the first guest to stay in The Virage. We assure you that the rate is not $320.00 for the main building, they range from $149.00 to $179.00 but the suites do cost more per night. For any further questions, please call our Sales Department.

We live locally but stayed overnight because it is such a great place. We had a business tour for early morning and this excellent hotel was just up the street from our destination. Staff is very helpful and entire hotel is spotless. Food was delicious also. Highly recommend!!
