Girl's trip to visit a newly retired friend took us to Venice FLA area and this hotel. Arrived around 11pm and had booked a double room, as three of us were traveling....at check-in we were informed that we were getting the last room in the hotel...and it was a king bed only. The young man (Jason maybe) at the desk was very helpful, giving us a rollaway and leaving a note for the manager. The room issue was resolved the next morning and we were given the double we reserved, however, we had to suggest to the manager the first night should be comp'd as this was not suggested by her (but she quickly agreed) The hotel was packed and at breakfast our first morning (breakfast starts at 6:30, we arrived at 7am) many food items, including the cinnamon rolls were completely gone. OK - you know you have a full house, prepare enough food! The breakfast area is small, maybe 10 tables and there is a small room off the lobby with one computer for guests to use. Rooms were fine, a bit old and some stains on the sheets, but the beds were comfortable. The room was hot and the air conditioning (in both rooms we had) was not working well and did not cool the room. The tub drained slowly, again in both rooms and the sink had no water pressure. Pets are allowed at this hotel and I have never been in a hotel with so many dogs! The entire area is dog crazy with dogs allowed in shops, restaurants and grocery stores! We spent one day at Myakka State park, very enjoyable, take the air boat tour for guaranteed alligator sightings!
