We visited this fabulous location during Hurricane Matthew and the hotel was packed to the rafters, yet the staff treated everyone like guests in their own home. Kristen and Beth-Ann at the front...

This hotel was a fantastic "port in a storm" so to speak. We were forced to find accommodations for one night due to an air conditioner malfunction at our rented villa, and this location was very helpful. It was a stormy night in Sarasota and the hotel suffered a lightening hit which knocked out their computer system, but the staff...

The hotel was very good. The breakfast was excellent. The person that took care of us in the front desk was a true gentleman and eager to please. Location was 10 minutes from the beach and close to restaurants.

If you are looking for a great pet friendly hotel, this is the place! Close the the dog friendly beach this place has it all. Clean and comfortable. My only problem is that it is popular and sometimes if we don't book in advance we can't get a room!

The room was average, bathroom floorboards and tub grout was gross.... the breakfast was gross, eggs were floating in water, sausage was almost cold. Staff was nice, WiFi was way slow. My room was on the third floor above the pool. I could hear every person out there until they left the pool. AVERAGE stay.
