“Great experience; amazing view”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Came down here from Toronto with my girlfriend for Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend and was really impressed with the hotel. Has a great view of the marina and one of the best sunsets on the whole coast of Sarasota for hotels. It is definitely top value and the staff are exceptionally helpful. Also extremely convenient location as it is located within 5 minutes of the airport and on the main strip (Hwy 41).

Olivia was extremely helpful and Navid gave us some great restaurant recommendations and told us where to go for shopping and nightlife. Also we needed a wine opener and management had it to our room within minutes which was nice. The staff seem more concerned with pleasing customers than anything else which is key.

If you're looking for great value and convenience this is your place.

Room Tip: Definitely get a waterfront view; the sunset is beautiful and the marina is a gorgeous view.

The hotel should be maintained better, breakfast could have been better. There was a long line for waffles, for there was only one waffle maker for everyone to use, however there was a very helpful guy that helped with breakfast.

Dear Valued Guest,

I am sorry that your stay was not 100% to your satisfaction. We actually just purchased a new waffle maker so that problem has been resolved. I will make sure to pass on your kind comments to the breakfast attendant, he is quite a star around here.

Thank you and we hope to see you again soon!

My softball team to Sarasota for a tournament and we couldn't have asked for any better of a place to stay! The staff was super friendly especially Olivia. Navid gave us great advice on places to eat/visit. The tiki bar on site was fun and had great food. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The Executive King room is the way to go.

Nice location, dining and good food. Tiki bars was full of people having fun and is a fun place. Cleaning crew very helpful and friendly, servers also wonderful, front desk helpful and friendly.
Pool needs cleaning and needs to be heated as states on web site. Not your normal luxury Ramada Inn, but small and nice and beautiful waterfront. They have a floating wedding chapel which is so cute, and a big hit there. Great place for a small and intimate wedding.

Room Tip: Need to be water front view. Nice to see the boats come in.
