The person who checked us in was very friendly, and there were delicious cookies in the lobby along with the USA Today. Room was clean. Towels were soft. Lighting in the room was poor, and it was hard to see at night. There was a refrigerator which included a small freezer section. Breakfast was one of the best we have...

We stayed for a week and chose the location due to being near the highway. We could get to St. Armand's Circle/Lido Beach in 20-30 minutes. Downtown is only 20 minutes depending on your route. Myakka River State Park is 9 miles east. The hotel is very clean and modern. Our window air conditioner had a hard time keeping up...

Our family stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. All together we had 4 rooms.

Nice staff, but the sheets are thin and pilled and the mattresses are way overdue to be replaced. The hairdryer overheated in my husband's hand and smelled like it was melting/burning. There is an a/c unit (providing cooler air for a space next to it) cut into the wall of an exit stairway … clearly a fire code violation. We...
