We come to Orlando every September and for the past couple of years we have taken a few days away from our hectic time there to spend a few days on the coast. We love this hotel! We have been lucky enough to get a Groupon but to be honest I would gladly pay full price. Whilst it I would...

After flying the beach from Clearwater to Sarasota, I knew I had to spend one night on the beach. Booked a room for the next night to watch the sun set over the gulf, unfortunately things went south, my room wasn't ready, and mother nature decided to blow in a storm and heavy fog. However Aaron the manager made things...

I realize that I am pampered, but when I stay at a hotel for more than one night, I expect for the room to be "freshened", that is, clean towels, empty the waste basket, make the bed, wash the glasses,etc. You know, standard stuff that EVERY HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN FOR MORE THAN ONE NIGHT DOES! Except this...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I would like to first say that I am very sorry that you did not receive daily housekeeping as you were expecting. However we are a smaller property unlike a Hilton or Marriott. The majority of our guests appreciate the privacy and intimacy of our property and no one...

Great value and even got a special rate. Not a 5 star but comfortable, clean, and quiet. Right on the beach. Parking under the building. Outside wall all glass, with curtains and door open I enjoyed several good afternoon naps. Always something to just sit on the sofa and watch, dolphins playing, pelicans, sailboats, most wonderful sunsets I have ever...

This place is really nice. It is better than the new can expect for the price. Is close to on the shops and restaurants and bars. This is a well-kept place.

I recently traveled from Georgia to Florida for Thanksgiving with family locally. My parents had chosen this hotel for me to spend the two nights. Check-in was a breeze and the hotel staff was very accommodating! They provided several recommendations for restaurants nearby and even provided coupons for use. The hotel is a 4 story building with the ground floor...

Just stayed at this hotel for a week and had a lovely time. The hotel itself is gorgeous, being right on the beach and within walking distance to Johns Pass. The rooms and other amenities are excellent and staff are friendly. I have one issue with this hotel and its the leaving of your credit card details to cover damages....

First off I'd like to reassure our future guests that we do not make money or a habit of charging guests credit cards for monetary gain. We are however aware of the condition of our rooms and the contents of these rooms before every arrival and after every departure. The guest who left this review occupied this room and the...

My husband and I were completing an 11 day Florida vacation with 1 night to go. We were traveling back to Tampa to fly home. We hadn't booked reservations intentionally, so that we could drive along the beach and "find" some place special to stay. We were driving along Gulf Blvd to find the perfect place.We weren't looking for top...

We found this hotel exceptional from time of reservation to book in. The desk staff were friendly and very helpful. We chose a ocean front room and did not want to leave. The room had everything you needed including a view to die for. What better way to spend some time than sitting on the balcony watching the passing parade...
