“Nasty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

this place is nasty
badly taken care of
and overly priced
the maid sneaks around and goes into people's rooms and harasses them for room money instead of the manager.
They rig every thing that is messed up for example our shower was clogging and all they did was use a hanger and not a real snake
there are drug dealers,pimps,hookers etc

This is the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. The Department of Health should be notified of this filthy place. There was black mold in the room, the sheets were obviously not cleaned (very well) and it was obviously not safe and very expensive.

I had the extreme misfortune of staying at the Family Inn in Feb. of 2005. There was a problem with reservations at our "real" hotel and this was the only place available during the peak "spring training" time in Sarasota. There was a large patch of black mold in the bathroom. The motel itself was filthy and worst of all, I did NOT feel safe. My girlfriend and I were "eyeballed" by the seedy characters drinking near the parking lot. There were no deadbolts. The doors could have been un-locked by a key from the outside. We slept very little before getting up about 5:00 am and taking a nap on the beach. This was by far, the worst, place I have ever stayed. I would sleep in my car before I ever stayed here again.
