“Good stay for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

This hotel was a nice stay for the price we paid. We were lucky enough to get a really good deal. The staff were very nice, however the cleanliness didn't seem to be a priority. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay, this place gets the job done. Breakfast was free and nice, nothing extravagant.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Half the lights were burned out, the bathroom sink never drained, the toilet seat was dirty upon arrival, the blanket had cigarette burns and blood stains, a strange vent next to the bed produced a very stronge smell of cigarettes.

We stayed here last week and it was very nice. We were worried to check in at this hotel because of all the reviews. The front desk staff was very helpful by getting us check in and made sure everything was fine with our stay. The room smelled fresh and very clean. Lakeside view was the best thing we got for our entire trip by staying at this hotel. The breakfast was awasome. I think overall, i would rat this hotel 10 out 10 because we didn't anything to complain about it. Please don't belive all of the ohther review because you will really miss this nice and reasonable place to stay in Ellenton, FL. We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoy our stay at Guesthouse Inn.

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms were beautiful...

Had family coming into town and told them to check this motel because it was convenient and always looked pretty good. NOT! I am so sad to say that the room is covered in dog or cat hair, even on the sheets when covers pulled back. Family staying the one night and then moving to another motel. They had to call the front desk and ask housekeeping to come change the sheets. My aunt is handicapped and they told them there wasn't a handicapped room available, but that wasn't true. She had to be let off in the front of the hotel and go all around the building in her wheelchair to get to her room. She could park outside her room, but no ramp on that side of motel to get to room. In this day and age of handicap awareness, how could this be possible? I will never send anyone else to this motel.

Room Tip: If checking into a pet friendly hotel, check the room first for hairs from the animals.

First, I like to apologize for the kind of experience your family had at our hotel. The pervious guest who stayed in that room didn't declare their pets to us due to the pet fee policy we have at our hotel, but we will make to follow up with housekeeping staff for error like this. Unfortunately, we only few rooms thats handicapped accessible and depends on the the availability as far as checking into those rooms. Thank you again for your feedback.

We booked a non smoking room and when we entered our room it reeked so bad of smoke I couldn't deal with it ! We immediately went to the front desk and Lucia was most helpful and nice enough to give us a free upgrade to a suite. The room was clean, but very run down and in need of repairs. Our bedspread had numerous cigarette burns in it. The breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about. The best thing about this hotel was watching all the wild life in the pond behind it. I would never stay here again and probably would not recommend it to any one.

Not sure where to start would much rather stay in my car than in this run down piece of c**p. Disgusting, filthy, smelly, they should be out of business. For the price I paid I could stayed at the Hampton if they were not booked. Staff is rude, dresses unprofessional, breakfast was disgusting . Please DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME TO STAY HERE.

Went to Ellenton overnight. Stayed here with my daughter and friend. The desk attendant, "T" was so kind and helpful. The room was freshly cleaned AND it's quiet. Sits next to the most wonderful Oyster Bar! I wish I could have stayed longer

Room Tip: just ask for what you want
