“Such a lovely stay!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I've seldom enjoyed a hotel as much as this one. Check-in was friendly, smart, caring, and efficient. And the room was beautiful, with wood floors, soft linens, an air purifier, soap and shampoo dispensers in the bathroom (cutting down on plastics and waste), cushy towels, and a great breakfast, whose main course changed from day to day. Best of all, the coffee tasted like real coffee -- none of that watery stuff! Our room had a small kitchen with sink, coffee-maker, microwave and fridge, a sofa, and a table for two. Flat-screen tv and free wi-fi completed the picture. We enjoyed it so much (and our visit to Venice, in general) that we decided to stay an extra day. Highly, highly recommend.

I stay here every time I'm in Venice (4-6 times per year) and the staff is always very nice and helpful. This hotel is very clean and "green". The location is perfect...right off the highway yet minutes to everything. We upgraded to a 1 BR suite for the first time and it was only $25 more! Well worth the money and the beautifully remodeled rooms have Pergo wood floors, much better than carpet. The hotel provides a delicious full breakfast too. The only draw back is the workout room: the machines look 20+ years old and are mostly broken down or near that point any day. However, if you need a safe, clean, and well managed hotel I highly recommend this place. Even my picky 17 year old said how nice it was!

Thank you so much for your review. We do try to keep up with new ideas in our rooms to keep current with growing issues such as green and room carpets. I do have to say though that our equipement in the exercise room is 3 years old and commercial grade. I am sorry if something didn't work and hope that you reported it to us so that we could get it fixed. We do take these issues to heart and will check all the machines to make sure they are working properly. Hope to see you again. Jan

No place to be. Nothing in the calendar. Just showing my wife the Florida sights.

As a returning guest, we got a much better rate (better than AARP or AAA). And, the rooms are very clean and well appointed.

We had a mini-suite with his 'n' hers TV's with "real" cable TV, (instead of that DirecTV crap with limited channels at the Hilton's). Plus, the Wireless works flawlessly (no need to log into their protective shell).

Over-all, very pleasing, with Beer & Burgers two doors down, as well as a McD's a block away. We opted for Saturday karaoke at the AmLegion hall a couple of miles towards Venice. There's also a Moose Lodge next door to the AmLegion.

Nice fun weekend.

Room Tip: If you do a return visit, you get a mmuch better rate.

Stayed here while visiting family on Manasota Key. Booked this hotel based on other reviews and they did not disappoint! This hotel is wonderful- clean, great room, helpful and friendly staff and good location.
We will definitely being staying here again, it's a great price.

The only so called negative is the beds weren't the most comfortable but not bad enough not to stay again.

We booked this hotel thru Priceline and got an extremely good deal. We were pleased when we entered our room. But the next morning when I was getting out of the bed, I found an item that did not belong to me. I was horrified and went to the front desk. They were also upset and apologized profusely and had all of the linens changed. They also let me extend my Priceline cost by a day. So a little scary but I would probably come back.

I really can't say enough good things about the hotel. The rooms are large and luxurious, the public spaces tastfully decorated and the staff in a class by themselves. I had friends in from out of town and needed a place for them to stay overnight. The front desk personnel handled everything for me and even arranged a little welcome treat for them when they checked in. The pool area is just the right size for the hotel and is a nice intimate spot for you to relax. It is conveniently located near the expressway and only 5 min. to the beaches and downtown.When passing near Venice I recommend a stop for the night.

Room Tip: rooms on front of building are more sceinic.
