Employees are friendly and helpful. Also restaurant/tiki bar has wonderful employees and good food. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone in the area looking for a great value and perfect place to stay.

This was not up to the standards I expect from Ramada. The only positive I could say was it wAs clean. This motel is badly in need of updating.

It's not the Hyatt or Regency so I wish people would stop basing their reviews as though it were! For the money, this was good value. Clean rooms, helpful polite staff, and good food (although the restaurant is in serious need of being remodelled). If you're in the building south of the office, ask for a room facing the road...

Rooms were old and in desperate need of renovation. Other rooms were getting renovated with piles of old carpet and broken furniture littering entire property. I was woken at 6am with drilling sounds. The continental breakfast was out of food by 8 with poor quality.

I stayed over the holiday weekend and prices were crazy inflated and I paid $230 per night for a dirty room. My door in the bathroom looked like an animal had been chewing on it and my phone was broken in the room, which I found out when I called to tell them I had no blinds or shade over...

This hotel is "under renovation" - we got one of the older rooms. Things like edges/corners of rooms/bathroom could use some attention, dresser is missing a drawer, stuff like that. Nothing wrong with it, basically clean but def not higher end- it's ON a major road, has sub-par breakfast, & terrible coffee. There's an attached bar/restaurant which is average (serves...

Dear Beth, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry you stay was anything less than perfect. We do have two types of rooms: "Executive" and "Standard".

Well if you don't want to pay so much and get a decent place this is ok. I got two rooms an one smell bad not the other one. So if you get lucky you get the one that doesn't smell bad. Location is not bad.

Nice room at a very nice price. In the rear of hotel you can walk on docks and look at boats. Hotel is close to road as most hotels here in Sarasota, so you do hear a Lil road noise. On the main drag with plenty of places to eat. Would stay here again.
