“Beautiful New Hotel”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed at this Comfort Suites during a trip to Florida for our 25th Wedding anniversary. We didn't have reservations, however we prefer Choice hotels so we stopped and lucked out with a room. The front deck people were very nice, including Judy, who was exceptionally friendly yet professional. The room itself, was a king bed on the second floor. This hotel was so new, it still had a new hotel smell, which was not a bad thing. The rooms are beautifully decorated with many upgrades you don't find in other hotels, including reading lights on both sides of the bed besides the regular lamp, as well as extra outlets for plugging in cell phones or tablets. The beds were very comfortable, with both firm and soft pillows. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom. We did not get a chance to use the pool or hottub, however I did go out to see them, and noticed that they both have a "lift" (if that's what it's called) to get handicapped people into them. I think that is just great! We were in and out over the several days we stayed, and were always greeted by the person at the front desk. The breakfast is plentiful with many options even other Choice hotels don't have. The only glitch in our entire stay was breakfast on Sunday morning, where I imagine they weren't prepared for the volume of people eating breakfast at the hotel that morning. They even opened a meeting room so there would be enough seating for everyone! We kept being told "It will be out in a minute" when things ran out, for example waffle batter and coffee. We took it in stride, considering the place had not even been open for a week yet! I think they just need to get ahead before the rush and they'll be fine. All in all a very nice place to stay, with friendly people working there! Oh I'm not sure what his job is, but Christin (Not sure of the spelling) was also helpful and friendly. We saw him doing several different jobs during our stay, which is why I'm not sure exactly what his job is. I would deftinitely recommend this hotel to everyone, and will be staying there again on our next trip to Sarasota!!

Thank goodness this motel finally opened. The area is in need of a motel with a bit of class to it. We need to stay in the area due to elderly relatives and have had it with the Days Inn, (former) Comfort Inn, etc. All are tired and in need of a complete rebuild.

This motel opened on 2/15/13. We were driving by and saw the open sign and promptly canceled our Days Inn reservation and moved. We will never return. The CS was not even taking internet reservations when we arrived and yet they were almost 30% full. That's how desperate folks are for a "good" motel in this particular area. The checkin folks were very nice. I told them I wanted a room where NO ONE had ever slept, and they said no problem. Finally, after 50+ years of renting rooms we get to be #1. It probably sounds silly, but it was fun.

The breakfast was better than most for the simple fact that they kept the food hot. Again, it may sound obvious, the the "others" in the area have no clue as to how to do this. Didn't try the pool or gym area so have no comment. Wifi worked in lobby but was just so/so in the room. The mgr said they were working on it, and I believe it as they are still working on everything from planting trees outside to hammering in some of the rooms.

Long story short ... as long as they keep things clean this is the only place we will stay when we need a room on Clark. The beds were firm, they give you a choice of pillows, and the tv had over 60 stations to choose from. Plenty of hot water, but pressure was weak (probably from watering all the new trees outside ... LOL).
