property is very old, needs renovations. Can't believe it is a PLUS property. Rooms are very small and bathroom was not clean. Did enjoy the small bar at the pool and food truck. Break fast was OK. Would not recommend .

Sandy M - The property just recently finished another major renovation last year on the exterior of the building including the drive up, lobby and breakfast areas. We have a very extensive independent site that clearly outlines who we are and what we look like. Best to do some research before arriving somewhere that does not meet your expectations. The rooms are average in size compared to any other hotel similar to our segment - we do have multiple room suites available for those needing additional space. Maybe they weren't available during your stay as they are very popular. But truly don't know what your expectations are for a BW Plus property since this is far beyond the brand minimum requirements for a PLUS - from free Siesta Key shuttle service, to overstocked complimentary hot breakfast which includes a yogurt bar (build your own parfait), build your own pancake and freshly made oatmeal daily in addition to the freshly baked danish. You do mention our full service poolside tiki bar hosting live music 3 days a week and a food truck on Fridays. This property is definitely a PLUS - offering much more than similar properties in the area.

Stayed for two nights while visiting the area. This is a very well kept older property. The room was updated, and very clean. Hotel staff courteous and professional. although we didn't have time to use it,the pool area and pool bar with live music is a great feature. HIghly recomend this propertyl

My husband and I just stayed one night but it was enjoyable visit. The hotel is right on Hwy 41 on the southside of Sarasota at the intersection that will take you to Siesta Key further west. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. There is Happy Hour at the pool with live entertainment and lots of restuarants nearby.

This hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside but we really enjoyed our 1 night stay, and recommend this to anyone. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Free WiFi and breakfast. Our room also had a microwave and refrigerator. There is free shuttle service which we didn’t need as we had our car.
