“Lovely small motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

My colleagues and I stayed here during a recent conference trip in Sarasota. It was lovely to be so close to the beach, and the house we rented (part of the motel) was very cute, and the price--particularly for the area--very reasonable. The kitchen wasn't particularly well stocked with utensils or cookware for an extended stay, but since we ate out so much, that was fine. The beds were not the best I have slept in, but they were adequate for a few nights, and the furnishings were definitely a bit dated. But my number one concern anyplace I stay--Is it clean???--was a non-issue: The bathtub had obviously seen better days, but had no mildew, no soap scum, nothing! Much cleaner than expensive chain hotels in which I have stayed in the past. We will definitely stay here again next conference!

As 5 college students, we had an amazing time. Such a fast walk to the beach and to St. Armand's Square! We utilized the grill outside and the hammock!
It was very relaxing. Walls were a little thin and we could hear people talking outside through the window, but it wasn't that big of a deal to us.

amenities were nice. internet was kind of shaky. but towel service was great! kitchen area was a good size. the cushions on the couches were flat but that happens.
I HIGHLY recommend this!

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was very roomy, except for the bathroom, which was very small. I agree with most of the reviews: the location couldn't be better, within walking distance to the beach and St Armand's circle. I also agree that the hotel needs to be a little better maintained. However, it was very clean, and the manager was super accommodating. Having wifi was an extra plus.

We will be back. We enjoyed the stay for our Wedding Anniversary. Nice get-a-way and lovely location. Kind of 50's atmosphere. We like to think of it as our get a way place. We live here in Sarasota and are up in years so it is perfect for us and reasonable.

We loved staying here! The location is fantastic! The suites are older but really well maintained! Rooms were large, very old Florida! We will be back.

Excellent location. bare bones . Could stand much sprucing up. We did not need a pool or exercise room so it answered our needs

Close to Lido Beach and St. Armand's. Old Florida feel.
