“Well Priced - Great Stay”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Sarasota was not part of our original plan.We booked a hotel for 2 nights and for the 2nd time had to cancel the 2nd night because the first hotel sucked! We ended up here. The room was GREAT! Very clean, very spacious. We had our own poolside patio. Everything in the room worked for a change. Free Wi Fi, Free breakfast. They supplied us with a coffee pot, The location is close to the beaches and great restaurants. The islands off the coast of Sarasota are way more interesting than the Florida Keys. The shopping was great, the beaches incredible , expecially on the Siesta Key. Armands circle is a great place to wander and shop. This hotel was a nice place to come home to at night. They work very hard to make sure its clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again should I go back to visit Sarasota.

We were pleasantly surprised when we found our room to be cleaner than most higher priced hotels. The manager went out of her way to make our stay pleasant - gave us tips about the surrounding area, even though she was very busy. The breakfast was good - nothing spectacular, but nourishing and well presented. There was a grocery store right across the street, where we picked up supper, cooked it in our microwave and put our drinks in our fridge.

Reviewed 28 December 2013

We needed a room the Friday after Christmas and were really in a bind since we tried about 20 hotels that did not have availability. We found this one for $69.99 and figured we better take it. It was pretty bad, especially for that price. There was no elevator that we ever found to the 2nd floor where our room was. There was a stench in the hallways and in the room. The whole time I was really worried about bugs but luckily never saw one--whew! I had to move the nightstand to access the only available outlet. The shower was all right; it had an updated shower curtain but the water pressure/temperature were not the greatest. There was only one small bar of soap without any shampoo or any other toiletries. There was a hair dryer so that was good. Breakfast was very sparce. There were 4 tables in a very cramped space and a choice of 2 cereals, waffle, or toast. They do not accept the Americas Best Value reward program so if you stay here you won't get a discount, upgrade, points, or anything else with the program. This is not somewhere I would stay again. We were so desperate so I'm glad we found a place but it was not good.

very friendly staff and clean rooms. I have stayed at this hotel many times and never had a bad stay. I will only stay here when in Sarasota. The grounds are well maintained. Maids are very friendly. I will tell all my friends and family about this place.

This hotel has great potential if some upgrades were done. Most important suggestion would be to eliminate the smoking rooms. Paint the hall walls and renovate the bathrooms.
The rooms that face into the pool have a nice appeal.

my room was clean, everything worked fine, A/C, good shower, comfy clean bed, nice pool. Oct2013 they are in process of replacing carpeting. Right next to Publix supermarket, safe & walkable part of town. For a basic, relatively cheap hotel in SRQ, this place was just fine.

Room Tip: pool-side rooms have patio/balconies. Don't miss Roadside Rib Shack 1/4 mile south on Bahia V...
