Don't let the reviews scare you. I was taking a rather long, leisurely trip down the Tamiami Trail going to 'old Florida' motels sightseeing. Booked 3 nights online, liked it so much ended up staying eight days. Great rates, great room, pool, location etc. After checking in, I drove around the building to room. When I first pulled up, it was just the parking lot and a row of Old outdated doors, no frills. I thought I made a mistake, but, entered and was delighted. Inside there are double French doors that open to the courtyard. The courtyard was great with tiki torches, pool, grills, and landscaping(Looking forward to shuffleboard next time). The greatness was how removed you felt from the traffic, city etc while in your room and the courtyard. My room (renovated) was terrific, new beds, new floors(NOT carpet), flat screen tv. table/chairs, fridge/micro etc. The staff was very good, Always cleaning, helpful, willing to do most anything for you and most of all very friendly. They location was perfect, very safe area, so close to everything beaches (not just Venice Beach), attractions, shopping and other little cities&state parks to visit. The Restaurant, The Blu Bistro was so good. It was always very busy with locals/travelers. The food was VERY reasonably priced and Chef Allen (from Philly) has an amazing menu with daily changes. This property is under renovations and rooms being updated. I was in a newly renovated room. The renovations were very low key, not loud, disruptive or even obvious. I will/would definitely stay here again when I revisit. Kudos to Marc, Shondra, front desk and housekeeping, Allen@Blu Bistro and all who made my stay so wonderful. Renovations and updates should be completed soon, in meantime, ask for renovated room, stay, play and have a great time here.
