“great place for the value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

This hotel is a great value. Rooms are clean, staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast is included with plenty of options to start the day. It is dog friendly with plenty of canines(some barking). This did not bother us but did others. Rooms have microwaves and fridges. Central to many sites, beaches, activities and airport. Will definitely stay again.

1). They didn't clean our room for 2 days straight. No fresh towels, waste baskets spilling over, and we ran out of toilet paper. My calls to the front dest usually weren't answered, since the attendant was absent for long periods. Then when he promised to bring towels, he never did. Finally I had to go downstairs & get in his face.
2) They allow pets here. Fine. Except that the dog next door has barked for HOURS. It's now 10 pm, and he's still barking.
3) the place smells. Understandable, when they don't clean the rooms, and people don't see to their pets.
4) No one was concerned about any of this. The front desk guy wouldn't take any responsibility. He wasn't even there most of the time. People tried to call us on business, and they said nobody at the hotel ever picked up the phone.

This is easily the WORST hotel ever. The local homeless shelter has to be a better place to stay.

We stayed here for two nights during our stay in Sarasota Florida and were most impressed
Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were attentive and courteous and the breakfast was excellent
An altogether great experience.
We would recommend it to everyone

Being able to take your pets with you and stay in a clean and nice hotel is a big big plus. Staff was very kind to the pets and no one complained about them. Definitely a great option and they don't charge you anything for the pets either.

Excellent facilities in every way, pleasant and efficient staff. We left an item behind, and it was returned to the front desk promptly. A quick call and it was on its way to us. We found the location convenient to everything that we wished to do. Breakfast was well above average for its type.

Rooms were generally comfortable, but clean. Amenities were good but breakfast could have had more to offer. Location was fantastic -- very close to many sites and museums and galleries and not too far for other attractions Sarasota is known for.
