We know Port Charlotte, FL. We used to live there and now seeking to return. We are therefore spending some time checking it out to see how well it has rehabilitated itself from the 2004 hurricane that devastated it greatly.
Well, it's back! Still small time (which is what is nice about it) but what they have redone and refurbished has been done well for the most part and improved the quality of life for all. While visiting, we stayed at the Sleep Inn & Suites, just off I-75.
It is a little quirky to get to, tucked in the back lane from King's Highway, but once there, it is adjacent to Cracker Barrel and a number of eateries at the local mall. It is also near a grocery store for longer stays.
On arrival, Christine greeted us with a broad smile, was efficient in checking us in and reminded us that freshly baked cookies were a must later on. She also mentioned the breakfast and times it is served, announced that wine and beer were available at a decent cost and then gave us our room keys.
We arrived at the room to find, it was nearly a suite. Large, clean and lovely. Unlike most hotel, it smelled and had the feel of new, though about 5 yrs old - a sign that the management/employees are looking after it very nicely -.
We settled in quickly and smiled at our good luck for finding such a good room.
The bed was comfortable, the ac/heat humming quietly and the noise level from the street absent. The morning greeted us with the welcoming of Becky in the breakfast room. Becky is one of the treasures at the Sleep Inn. If other hotels had their own Becky, life would be improved greatly for the travelling public... :o)
Warm, generous and nutritious breakfast - not the cheapy kind you find at this star level. The food was freshly made, the fruits fresh and not gray in appearance, the coffee, tea and juices, all very tasty. Throughout, we spoke to Becky about Port Charlotte and she updated us with great information as to where to shop, to find farmers markets, quaint cafes, etc.
We thorougly enjoyed our conversation with her. She is from the area and has vast knowledge of what is going on in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and even Arcadia.
All in all, this Sleep Inn must have a great management because its employees are happy, smiling and helpful. We checked out later on to find a young man at the reception wishing us a fab day and offering any help with directions that we might require.
This is superb value!!! Thank you to everyone at the Sleep Inn who made this possible.
