We usually stay at luxury properties... and as we arrived, checked-in, and eventually entered our ocean view room, I began to worry. As it turned out, the only items that truly justified my concern were the paper thin towels in the bathroom. Beach and pool...More
The hotel staff is accommodating. The rooms are clean but only on the surface. Updates in all aspects of the room are needed. The gounds and beach are well kept. It's a big space but much updating is in need for the price they charge...More

Hello, I think this place was nice. It was away from the busy shopping area. Quieter part of the beach. You can walk pretty far if you want to. The people there are very nice and helpful. Only problem we had were the beds being full sized so my husband and I couldn't sleep in the same bed. Other wise we didn't spend much time in the room. I would definitely come here again. Hope this helps.

Not that I'm aware of. The only shuttle service they provide is complimentary shuttle between the hotel and St. Armand's Circle. Although car was my family member's source of transportation, I personally would never hesitate to fly into Sarasota International, then take a taxi to/from the Sandcastle Resort.
