HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 March 2017

When I first encountered this hidden jewel from another era of those fabled Florida hotels last year, when the first railroad spurs brought the country's wealthiest families to those winter sands of the Breakers of Palm Beach, the Biltmore of Coral Gables, or the Pink Ladies of St. Petersburg, there was at the end of its own grand circle stage...

Wow, you write so well---you should have been a novelist. I really enjoyed reading how you described our beautiful hotel property. In the next couple of months, we will start more renovations. We just put new carpet in all of the rooms. Next, we will change the lighting outside along with changing our bedding inside of the rooms. We are...

I recently had the pleasure to spend some time at this establishment. Everything about the hotel was very accommodating. In my haste to depart,I left a very valuable item behind. I didn't realize that I had left the item until 4hrs later. Upon immediately contacting the hotel, I received a call from the General manager Ron Gromoll,who had already left...

Great place to stay. Great deal...booked four rooms. Accommodations were fabulous and the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. Staff was friendly and provided us with directions and details of the area. Hotel grounds were immaculate.

Will recommend to friends and family. Will stay again if in the area. Very inviting lobby. Fitness area was a let down. Can tell not much thought or money is spent in that area. Overall money well spent

I have stayed a few times and I try to give a hotel a chance especially if it has potential but I just cannot and will not use this hotel. I have asked every time for a pet free area and was giving a pet room each time. They put me in the middle of the pet floor once, and...

Very comfortable. Very Clean. Very reasonable. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is very, very good (all the usual plus: Krispy Kreme, waffles and, for just three dollars, a great omelette, made to order). Sitting out on the very roomy pool deck, you feel like you are out in a park (no clue that you are 100 yards from...

Thank you very very much for ALL the positive feedback. I myself wish on many days that I am the one stretched out on the beach chairs by the pool or reading a book under our oversized gazebo drinking a tall glass of sweet ice tea. We try to make all of our guests feel comfortable during their stay. We...

smelly rooms, sometimes issues with pets barking and tubs not working, slow check-in, poor customer service and not a great breakfast. horrible deposit fees and a form to charge you if you are loud, up to $1500. which is crazy! Front desk guy lied to me and ignored me.

I was very impressed by the room, which was broken up into various sections such as a separated bathroom and sink, the wet bar and "living room" and bed room. Door was squeaky, and décor somewhat dated, but overall very good experience.

We have a lot of guest that loves the King Deluxe and King Premier just because those rooms have the separate sitting area away from the bedroom where you can relax or watch TV. We are getting ready to renovate the rooms and get new furniture in the living room area which is very exciting. I am happy to see...

I have been here 4 or 5 times this year... Always a pleasant stay on my busy business trips... Ample parking for my boat and trailer... The request for a longer review will probably keep me from filling these out any more.... three nights on the road, all at Best Western... 2 here...
