Great place to stay! They have remodeled the rooms and common areas beautifully. The cleaning staff seems to take great pride in keeping the place clean. We have been going to Florida for many years in the winter and usually stay on the beach, but decided to try the canal side. We arrived a day early and they booked us for the extra night with no problem. We stayed in a ground floor unit with a balcony facing the dock, great place to have coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. It’s located near an Italian bakery (approx. 50 feet away) with fresh pastries every morning for when we didn‘t feel like going out for breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet, with a small kitchenette. The bed was great (we stayed at places with a bed that you wake up from not feeling rested) The staff and management were a pleasure to interact with. The G.M. was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and helped us avoid some of the lesser desirable places to eat and offering his advice on some great attractions. (yes, management is visible and walking around to make sure you are comfortable) I found this place on-line and decided to try it and were very happy with the resort. We got to use the beach by walking across the street and using the beach access walkway. The dock is a great place to watch and see fish, manatees, dolphins, crabs and a variety of birds. We like staying at the older resorts that have “character” and this has it, yet is updated and modern. Best of both worlds and reasonable rates. Bottom line, we enjoyed our stay and will be back.
