This was my second stay at this hotel. Both times it did not let me down. The rooms are equipped with all the basics for cooking and are clean and quite spacious. There are grills available if you want to BBQ. There are couple of places to eat within walking distance. Although the hotel is not right on the sand, the beach is only couple of minutes away. There are chairs and umbrellas available for rent. It is a private beach so there are not too many people there. The hotel is not a big building but a cluster of smaller ones which make it quaint and cute.
A good place to go as a couple, friends or family with kids. The sand is perfect and the water is nice. You can see dolphins at sunset and it's very romantic.

Very helpful and congenial staff. Our room was very large with a very comfortable king sized bed. The room had been newly renovated, with a nice kitchen with stainless appliances. No water view but we knew that before we went. The beach is beautiful and not very crowded considering we were there during the busiest time of year. A short path takes you to the bay - and we enjoyed strolling down there with guests from our (and surrounding hotels) with our filled glasses, to enjoy the sunset!

Room Tip: Restaurants and stores within walking distance.

Just spent 5 nights at TSR on Siesta Key. Great location, just south of the traffic mess at the bridge to Sarasota. Restaurants, bars & groceries are within walking distance. TSR isn't technically on the beach but it's a very short walk. Beach chairs (nice touch) & towels for the asking. Nice grounds with a pool even though there are many properties packed together. Nice modern clean quiet room with a full kitchen. Very friendly staff. The "almost"? Extremely small bathroom (but very nice). Limited closet space. No private outdoor space with the room (Sorry, I don't like relaxing with a glass of wine by a parking lot). Here's the best recommendation I can give any property: we'd go back & without hesitation.

This property is just lovely. We stayed in the sundeck studio room and we were very pleased. The staff was great, very helpful with any questions you had or any requests. The beach is just a few steps away and the sand is just as described. So soft and just like sugar. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Sundeck room was perfect because the deck was there for your use and the room was upgraded and very...

I am primarily a business traveler, pay for my own expenses, so what I think of a hotel might be a little different than a tourist.

I read other reviews and guess for the most part they are correct. The one thing that I feel is slightly misleading is to call this a resort. The rooms are very nice but understand this is a drive up to the door hotel,

Rooms were well appointed, the kitchenette was a real plus, and daily the room was cleaned perfectly. Bed was very soft, not what I like, but I am sure it works for most people. Very nice bath but with the roughest feeling towels I have had in a long time. I am sure the towels are a result of the hard water they have to use.

Staff could not have been nicer and accommodating. We were in a street facing room, with a small pool outside our door. There was street noise but nothing terrible. There was a larger pool located in the center of the property, which was also nice.

The Gulf was about a 3 minute, direct walk from our room, it was behind the hotel. It was just as described but because of where the hotel is located and especially our room, one had no idea that the Gulf even existed.Parking is limited, we came back one night about 11:30, found no room except for one space, unlike our room, this one turned out to be a dedicated space for a room.

Bottom line; was the hotel as described yes, I was happy but not thrilled at the high in-season rate I paid. Would I go back to Siesta Key, probably but would pay a little more for a real Gulf view.

Let's begin with the fact that this is a motel, not a glamorous resort! It consists of a few buildings with motel size efficiencies, outdoor entrances, two small pools, outdoor sitting areas and a short walk to the beach. That being said, it is very clean, staff is very friendly, very accommodating, and quiet.
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. When we got our room, it was so small, that we banged into each other. We requested a larger room, and they went out of their way to find us one, but we would have had to switch after the next day, so chose not to take it. We reworked the table and chairs in the room we had and put my husband's suitcase in the bathroom on the floor next to the shower. The room has all the kitchen necessities. The bed was pretty comfy, the towels were paper thin as was the toilet paper and kleenex. The shower was large with a prickly kind of flow. Chairs are provided for the beach, as are tiny beach towels. The beach is beautiful, but crowded when we were there. It really is a different place then we usually stay at, but it was very peaceful! It is nice to be treated so nice! I do think if we come back to Siesta Key, I would book here again. I would just upgrade from the Hideaway size room to the next size.

We only spent one night, but wish we could have spent a couple additional nights. We were in a room facing the front of the property and a very nice, quiet pool. The room was very nice, updated and clean. Although we didn't use the kitchen, the room came equipped with a refrigerator and stove. The private beach was only a short walk from the hotel and there were umbrellas and beach chairs available to rent. There are lots of great places to eat on Siesta Key. We drove to the village and ate at the Lobster Pot- delicious. We brought our bikes, so rode to the village, about a 3 mile trip, for breakfast. SKOB serves complimentary bloody marys with breakfast. Tropical Shores is at the south side of the key and easily accessed by the south bridge. We look forward to getting some friends to join us here again this summer!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are very quiet if you're looking for a couples, relaxing weekend.
