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!
