My husband and I and our two teens needed a clean, affordable place to stay near Ana Maria while we waited for my sister in law's house to be available on Ana Maria. This hotel is not far from Sarasota and very easy to get to. Right upon entering the hotel we were greeted by Igor, the Egret. My kids were delighted. Very friendly bird who is treated very kindly by the staff. This gave us a clue that the staff were good people. We were right. Chris, the General Manager, is very professional and laid back and every other person we encountered was geniunly NICE. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with good beds, flat screen TVs and it was quiet! Other guests were gone during the day to baseball training camps or in and out as we were. The hotel sits back from Cortez and there are a TON of options for food, etc. We will DEFINITELY come back.
