Reviewed 13 July 2013

I would definitely recommend Hibiscus Suites to anyone looking for a good value + great place to stay in Sarasota near the gorgeous beaches, wonderful restaurants and the wildlife.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and I liked Hibiscus so much I extended my stay.

The price is right and I was extremely pleased with both the efficiency room that I used as well as the one bedroom suite. Kitchen is well equipped and very handy.

Also the Carrabbas across the street is wonderful as well. There are a number of stores nearby and the hotel's location is just across the bridge from Siesta Key. Nice pool.

Planning my next trip already and will bring family.

Room Tip: Both the efficiency and the suites are super - just pick to fit your budget. Efficiency is just a st...

We stayed in the Hibiscus Suites for a night this past week. It was superb! It looks like the room has recently been renovated and was in tip-top condition. It was so convenient with children to have the extra kitchen space and full size refrigerator. Julie, I believe she is the manager, is warm and hospitable! A gem! It wasn't right on the beach, but close enough to be convenient; a short walk if you're ambitious or a quick ride in the car. Only thing that wasn't appealing was the pool right next to the road, but those things you can't just pick up and move so I understand. Thanks for a great stay!!

Disclaimer: I am slightly spoiled traveling and like the finer things. With that said, I don't mind staying a "regular" hotel at times when I know I'm there just for fun - beaches, parks, sightseeing and shopping and not on a luxury vacation. Traveling with my 2 and 6 year old we planned on visiting Jungle Gardens and spending days at Siesta Key. However, of our 3 night stay, we ended up leaving after the first night.
First, the good - the property was very, very, very clean. The housekeeping staff are amazing. Also, having a full size fridge is such a great plus. Parking is right outside your room - in motel style. It's only 5 minutes from Siesta Key although parking is difficult so just call FreeRide to get to the beach. However.....
The beds are hard as rock. Even my 2 year old couldn't sleep. Who ever knew toddlers to know the difference? I ended up having to take him onto the leather couch and let him sleep on my shoulder all night. My 6 year old tossed and turned and couldn't sleep at all. We were all awake at 3am exhausted and achy just waiting for the day to begin so we could leave. The worst part, you need to know if you're going with kids that the channel line up includes NO kids channels. No Nickelodeon or Nick Jr, no Disney or Disney Junior, not even the Toon channel or ABC family or even PBS.... on top of that, there was no DVD player at all to even be able to pop in a DVD so I could take a quick shower in peace. The air conditioning unit was LOUD. So much so that we'd rather swelter in the heat than deal with the noise.
The contintental breakfast is a nice offering, it's in the office and the staff is as nice as can be. But, it only consists of a waffle maker, toaster with a couple of bagels and a few choices of cereal.
All in all, good for anyone expecting a 2 star hotel, maximum three, and are okay with that. Go with the proper expectations. I mistakenly expected more based on the previous reviews and was majorly disappointed.

When we first pulled up to the hotel, we were a little concerned--it was pink and had the slight look of a 60's motel. However, our concerns were immediately put to rest. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were super clean and great sized. There was a living area with a couch of two and some chairs, a small kitchen area with a full size fridge, stove, etc. The bathroom was nice in that there was a sink both in the bathroom and also right outside the bathroom, so two people could get ready at once.
We didn't put the pool and there is no hot tub.
Breakfast was included and was the standard fare--cereal, yogurt, breakfast bars, and also a woman making waffles. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.

This is the first time we stayed at the Hibiscus Suites. Very clean and comfortable, nicely furnished, and the pool was beautiful. The hotel is located close to many restaurants and a shopping mall, as well as being right across the bridge from Siesta Key, so just a short 6-8 minute drive to Siesta Key Public Beach.
(If you're going to Siesta Key Public Beach, parking is ridiculous! Do yourself a favor and call Surfside Free Ride (941) 961-8238. It's a free transportation service for tips only. They'll pick you up right at the hotel, and drop you off at the beach.)

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street, if you have trouble with traffic noise.

Just as you had mentioned shellconk, traffic during the summer can be quite busy on the Key. Our friends over at Surfside Free Ride do provide complimentary transportation until 2am each day, so you have the opportunity to enjoy the nighlife that Siesta Key is known for. Thanks for also staying with us; we're glad to see you found our wonderful property well maintained and clean throughout. I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon! All the best.

Whilst we are 5* Hotel holidayers usually our stay at the suites was a very pleasant and most memorable one. The staff made the stay and would go out of their way to help and assist - thank you The Big Show (Debra), Julie and all the staff that made our holiday a great one - we will certainly be back cant wait to see you all again.
Rooms are spacious and clean and the pool and pool area well cared for. Yes the pool is on the road but it didnt spoil the many evenings we sat round the comfortable pool seating to enjoy the evenings.
