This hotel is NOT in Sarasota. It's not even in Sarasota County. Instead, it's very inconveniently located 7.5 miles out on the highway, near the airport. And it's a dump. We had to look at three rooms before getting one even acceptable, and it was really shabby. There's no elevator for second-floor rooms, and the halls are filthy. I can't imagine why anyone would stay here unless they were fooled (as we were) about the location.

When we arrived we were greeted by a huge line & waited for 15-20 minutes to get our room door cards. When we finally found our room it was filthy with dead roaches & crackers in the bathroom along with blood on the bathroom sink. I took pictures and showed the management & was told they would get us another room. After waiting for another 15 minutes they said there was not another room available & they would have it cleaned for us. We went to their Tiki Bar on property to wait & found it full of EXTREMELY DRUNK LOCALS. The bartenders were yucking it up with the locals & didn't bother to wait on us for an extended period of time. We were then told it was ready after another 30 minute wait and when we arrived back at the room NOTHING HAD BEEN DONE TO IT. The same filth was there. THIS IS A HEALTH HAZARD & BIO-HAZARD & nothing was done. I took some cleaning spray off an unattended maid cart I located & cleaned up the mess the best I could with a hand towel and then just about boiled my hands to get them clean. DO NOT STAY HERE! trying to contact RAMADA Corporate to let them know & show my pictures of this disgusting hotel with their name on it. Ramada used to be known as a classy place to stay. NOT ANY MORE. GROSSNESS BEYOND BELIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a last minute mad dash to find a room once we arrived as the hotel we initially booked was not in a good area. I had actually stayed here in 93 when I was a teenager . Rooms were average but clean. I think it had the same tv from 20 years ago. The highlight of this Property is their Tiki bar restaurant The Bearded Clam. Food was plentiful and some great specials like a $5 taco bar on Thursdays and all you can eat shrimp Friday . The staff there was exceptional. They really made you feel like you were at a bar back home .
