“Better than expected, could use just a little improvement”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We booked a room here the day before on a busy holiday weekend. I scoured for something available in our price range, was a little worried about what we'd get at that late time. We hadn't had great luck in this area in the past.

When we arrived, the left side of the property had locked gates (for security?). We drove around a bit and eventually realized we could not get in without going back out to 66th. Once in, the gentleman at the desk was very amiable and energetic at the late hour we arrived. Entering our room, the first impression was freshness. A spray of air freshener and newer furniture probably helped. The bathroom could have used a touch of decoration. Oh, well! The A/C was good (turned too low to 65, though) and didn't give that humid feeling some hotel A/C does. The most visible areas of the room were extremely clean. I eventually noticed some overlooked things. Hair trimmings near sink, a few food spots on the phone and wall. I've done housekeeping work and I know that when you are short on time and marking off a checklist of important things, some areas are easily overlooked. But things like clean walls and corners make a place feel truly clean. Also, ground and room maintenance employees should check for trash in odd spots on grounds, and take care of ceilings. Our bathroom ceiling was peeling. We reported this during checkout as it could indicate a problem.

On our first morning, we tried the hotel's breakfast and it was decent. Pastries, waffles (the fun make them yourself ones), yogurt, sausage, gravy and biscuits were some options. There were vegetarian choices, but no obvious vegan friendly ones like fruit. I think I liked the room coffee (maker was clean...I check!) more than the lobby coffee. But I was grateful for both. The dining area was kept fairly clean and the view of nice landscaping was very pleasant.

I like to be nit-picky in reviews to let others know what they are getting and to help hotel management readers. But I think that we were very fortunate in our case, it wasn't a bad stay!

Room Tip: I imagine a room on the outside and not in the pool courtyard would be quieter. We didn't get o...

Quick efficient check in. Staff friendly. Extremely clean. Breakfast has good choices. Little extras were attended to immediately . There was no outside restaurant on site but several chains were within a mile of the hotel

Had booked the two rooms for two nights and was not pleased with the cleanliness. There was dirt around all the edges of the carpet, odor in room, headboard had some sort of sediment from other guests etc. I felt uncomfortable about touhing most of the things like remote, chairs and so on. Would advise the staff to clean as if they or their family member were staying in a room, that's what you get a paycheck for.

The front counter staff was pleasant and very helpful, especially Pat who treated you as if you were a friend. The breakfast was typical items. The lady who attended this area kept it very clean and was on top of any spills or messes. Maybe management should let her train housekeeping....

Because of the Front desk and breakfast staff I would stay and ask that they tidy up the room better. I typically leave extra money for the room cleaner, but not on this trip.

The front desk made a wrong date of reservation for me.They would not refund my money ten minutes after the reservation was placed. The manager was very rude and would not give me his real name, even changed his name from Tom to Steven. Beware of this hotel.I will pursue this complaint.

With this reservation it was confirmed by our staff and yourself for the dates of March 8th check-in and check-out March 9th. You were also told that the reservation would be unable to be cancelled and you would be charged as soon as the reservation was made. I'm sorry that you feel that we were being Deceitful, when actually you did talk to both myself (Thom) and Steven, as well as another staff member.
I am the manager and my name is Thom, as I have given you the night of your reservation, as well as each time you have called and talked with me, this is my real name, I have no reason to hide that fact, or tell you otherwise.
Again I am sorry that you fell we were deceitful towards you with your reservation, we strive to make sure each and every guest understands and confirms each one of their reservations when people make them, we also inform everyone of the cancellation policy as well as any charges that will be made, as we had done with you and your reservation.

So pleased with our four-night stay at this hotel. Our room was updated and included microwave, mini-fridge, & newer flat screen t.v. Beautiful pool area overlooking a pretty pond. The staff was always helpful and had a smile for us every morning. Would definitely stay at this hotel on our next trip to this area in the future.

We selected this hotel after we couldn't find anything in Sarasota -everything was either booked, $300/night or in a not-so-good location. We decided to stop in Bradenton, just north of Sarasota. This hotel was just off the expressway, and $115/night. With our AAA card, we got a rate of $106. The front desk clerk was friendly and let us see a room before we booked. The room was clean, and included a flat panel TV, microwave and refrigerator. It was too cool to go into the pool. The hot tub was not working...a sign at the front desk said it was not heating properly and was out of order (I was glad to see the sign up front, instead of just at the hot tub). The breakfast was average, normal items for a hotel. There was plenty of parking. The location was convenient to Ellenton Outlets, Wal-Mart, gas stations, other stores and restaurants, and the expressway. Beaches weren't that far away. I would stay here again if affordable rooms are not available on Siesta Key.
