Free breakfast was not much to talk about. Pool is very tiny. Rooms are clean. Accepts pets. Too many dogs there. Not much of a view for being at the Sarasota bay location. Not sure if I would stay here again

Fairly nice hotel. Difficult to get out of parking lot during morning traffic. Coffee not very good. Had difficulty turning on the shower. TV was nice. Bed was so-so. A blind spot makes exiting difficult from southbound 41. Checkout clerk was very sweet and apologized when I reported the shower problem.

Mattress should have been replaced years ago. A mattress should be firm enough to allow a two hundred and thirty pound man to get a good nights sleep. This mattress in my room must be replaced. Testing of a mattress's firmness should be a daily practice by those making the beds.

I picked this hotel over other ones in the area because of better rating, which I believe come from pet owners. The hotel is pet friendly and this is excuse for many things. All the carpets I saw needed better care, linoleum is sticky. And yes- forget about room maintenance if you stay more than 1 day. The pool is...

Price is a little high as no one wants to spend over $100 a night on a room, but the hotel was clean and pretty decent and the rooms were great. We got the king room with pull out sofa. It worked out great and was nice and clean! The area could be a little better but right down the...

My daughters and I stayed at this location for a softball tournament and I couldn't be happier with our stay. The rooms were very spacious. The staf was extremely pleasant and accomodating to all of our needs.

Check-In clerk was a delight! Breakfast was above average for a free-bee. Waffles, bagels & cheese, juice, coffee and dry cereal and oatmeal. Pleasant surroundings. Gratis newspapers. It was money well spent.

Been here 5 of 8 nights, have had to ask for clean towels all but one day. Even when we arrived the room wasn't clean -- had food and soap from the last people. I have stayed in some pretty cheap places in third world countries and have never once wondered if the room had been cleaned... until now. I...

I am not a person who likes to stay in hotels that are pet friendly only due to the dander etc. I did not see any animal hair and the rooms were fairly clean, but their seemed to be a masked fragrance smell which interferes with my breathing. Part of my room was hard floor versus carpet which I like....
