“Nice Place, but......”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

This was the second time we have stayed at Hibiscus Suites Inn. The first experience was a wonderful time. We had the two bedroom suite and it was huge and lovely. No complaints at that time. This time was a little different. When we made our reservation, the woman that took our reservation was quite nice and very friendly. She even said that even though check in wasn't until 3 p.m., we could call around noon and we should be able to get into room around then or at least by 1230 to 1. So we arrived in town about noon and stopped in, but the woman at the desk stated that check in was not until 3. Anyway...we did get checked in at 230. The first thing we noticed in our 1 bedroom suite was the floor in the kitchen was all sticky by the sink. I mopped that up with some papertowels. The bedspread had a big stain on it...not quite sure what that was..We then went and spent time at the pool. That was wonderfully refreshing. Then we came back to the room and took a shower. The drain was all plugged up so you stook in ankle deep water while showering. It took about 1/2 hr to go down. The air conditioner rattled a bit all night long. The couch in the room was very uncomfortable and had no arms. There was one little chair in the livingroom, but that had no arms either and was quite uncomfortable. This room was not at all as comfortable as the 2 bedroom we stayed at two years ago. We did complain to the front desk at check out, but nothing much was said. Just that they would fix the drain in the tub. All in all, this is a nice place to stay at, but check over room first, then complain right away.

This is really a pretty nice hotel IF you get a renovated room. We had one but our friends did not so our impressions are very different. But they are working on renovating them all. The kitchenette was very nice; flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. Having two bathroom sinks was nice. Downers on the bathroom were the slightly rocky toilet and missing enamel in the tub. Otherwise the place was very clean and leather furniture nice. At night it was very dark and quiet. Staff friendly, breakfast adequate. (They could add some fruit and hot chocolate.) Pillows hard so bring your own. Bed comfortable.
It's right before you cross the bridge to go to Siesta Key so is very handy. I'd stay again as long as we got a renovated room.

Room Tip: If rooms 104, 105 are renovated, get those or any on that side. Just a little bit quieter as they do...

Wonderful little inn 7 minutes away from the beach. The staff was very helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The pool area was well maintained and even had a grill. The breakfast was a litttle small but enjoyable. I will be visiting here again!!

Room Tip: Room 103 had a bit of a better set up. I will request that when we return.

I was greeted by Gabby at the front desk upon my arrival. Although it was obvious that he was multi-tasking and very busy, he was exremely pleasant and explained that they suddenly became overwhelmed with recent bookings and that even though I came just after 3:00 PM, my room was not ready. He promptly rectified the situation by assigning me another room that was ready for me.
I was pleasantly surprised by the immaculate, beautifully furnished room that included everything that anyone could ask for and more.
The next morning I went to the office for some coffee and a wide variety of items included in their free continental breakfast. I observed as Eryn kept her cool while patrons complained to her about fees charged to them by their booking agent. Not her fault that they did not read the fine print, but she handled the situation with polite professionalism.
When checking out, Chris offered a sincere appreciation of my stay with them. I will certainly return and stay longer next time. Also, kudos to the housekeeping staff that do an excellent job.

Room Tip: My room was on the west side and was quiet & comfortable. They also offer rooms closer to the po...

The new owners are planning many upgrades for this older hotel. It seems as it could use it. The staff was excellent. Location was within walking distance to beach and stores. Many good restaurants in the area. I do plan on returning next year.
