“Can't fault it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

This has to be one of the nicest Best Westerns we have stayed at.My main concern with hotels is always the cleanliness and i cannot fault it here.The rooms and bathrooms are spotless as is the rest of the property.The staff obviously take great pride in the place.The area has some of the nicest beaches in Florida especially Siesta Beach which is only a short ride away.I would recommend the Cracker Barrell at the front of the hotel for a lovely meal and great service.We only had 2 nights here on our road trip through Florida but wish it could have been longer.We will definately come back to this hotel on our next visit.Wonderful!

We only needed 1 night to get a good nights sleep while home repairs were being done, and found that this location was pet friendly. It proved to be a great pick, room was clean, bath excellant and bed comfy. As an added plus we walked to Cracker Barrel, which is right in front of hotel and had our evening meal. While we did not use pool or internet we did enjoy the morning breakfast before meeting contractors back home. The breakfast was nothing fancy, but hit the spot. I would not hesitate recommending this to location to any one.

We read the reviews on here and booked our stay. I do not regret it. The Price was great , the staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and comfy. The location was central to all the locations that we were going to and there were plenty of great local restaurants and a mall near by. Our room also had a microwave and mini-fridge that was a nice bonus that we didnt know we were going to get.

East coast Floridians were looking for a stay-cation and beautiful location to take our Mom for her 70th birthday and we decided to travel across the state to take a train ride on an old-fashioned train in Parrish. We took a chance an and chose this hotel because it was close to where we needed to be. It looked nice on the Internet - but don't all hotels? Sometimes the pictures make the hotel look nicer but in the case the pictures don't do the hotel justice. This hotel IS the place to stay when you're in the area. The property is CLEAN and comfortable with all the ammenities. The rooms are spacious and modern with wireless available in the room. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated and the breakfast nook/lobby/coffee bar is very inviting.

General Manager Chris is at your service. He can and does help with ANYTHING you night need. During the complimentary breakfast service, Chris circulates to make sure every guest is taken care of and has whatever they need. If you need something just ask Chris and it's taken care of. Several people at breakfast on the morning of my stay were return guests to the hotel - that was impressive - RETURN guests - that says it all.

The breakfast service is unreal. I've never had seen such a spread at a complimentary breakfast - hot food was offered. One morning we arrived later in the morning toward the end of the breakfast service and the buffet was still fresh and well stocked. Chris was still making the rounds to make sure late-comers were satisfied as well.

After a hot day on the west coast, it was wonderful to come "home" to our hotel and cool off in the beautiful, crystal-clear pool, Towels are provided for poolside. It's hard to coax my Mom into a pool - it's hard for her to climb in and out. This pool offers easy access for young and old alike. And once in, we couldn't get Mom out. Even the pool at this hotel is comfortable and inviting.

Thank you Chris and everyone for making our stay so memorable. We plan to return to this area in the future and we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else. We WILL BE BACK!!

As a single female I have stayed at this hotel twice, two different years and both times had consistently excellent service in a super clean, quiet, well-run hotel. I felt very safe and was able to get personalized information about the area from Chris the GM and other front desk workers. The staff is invested in their small hotel and take pride in their work. The free breakfast was great and the excercise room updated and clean quiet pool was great to relax in after visiting the beautiful beaches nearby. I loved the fact that the no smoking rules in the hotel were enforced and that the cleaning staff were on top of their game. The beds are comfy and the atmosphere conducive to a relaxed vacation. I plan on returning again soon.

I have stayed in this particular hotel on two occasions now, and both times were a pleasure. The rooms are beautiful and clean, and the location is convenient to everything. The service is good and the hot breakfast available every morning is delicious and so convenient. A good value!
