I have stayed here a few times as it is close to The Pines rehab facility where my father is. Hotel is always clean, people friendly, nice king rooms. Location is great to Lido Beach and places to eat.

There is a bit of a drop coming out of the parking lot and not much of a view from our room in the second level. There breakfast was also pretty skimpy. Overall I had a...

We stayed at this hotel so that we could have an early start to the nearby Sarasota Farmer's Market on Saturday morning. It obviously is an older property that needs some love, as we heard some guests having various problems with their rooms. Our room was on the fourth floor and we had no major problems, some minor annoyances. The...

Stayed one night in January to catch a show at Van Wezel. Check in was quick and the staff was overwhelming nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean albeit a little worn.

This year, that hotel is no longer pet-friendly, so we searched for an alternative. The users’ ratings were about 80% positive, so we booked this 2-3 Star La Quinta....
