Average hotel, staff welcoming, but wish we had been told they were repainting the outside of the hotel so we weren't surprised to find painters out side our room window on the 3rd floor at 8:30 am, breakfast ok but no fresh fruit on offer, also only complimentary coffee in reception area so not tea on offer, not everybody likes...

Room was small and hotel was average...nothing to brag about. Walls thin. Breakfast was very sparse. When leaving for dinner, rednecks sitting on tailgate in parking lot drinking. One was peeing in bushes. Lots of people in parking lot. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Thank you for your review and choosing to stay with us. We were also disturbed to hear about the experience you described at our hotel. We hope you don't hold the actions of a random act from one party against us and that you may give us another chance in the future.

Booked 2 rooms for a night during the Christmas holidays. Check-in and check-out were both quick and efficient. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable as usual. This isn't the first time we've stayed here nor will it be the last. The hotel is located away from the main road so it would be easy to pass it by...but the...

We arrived early (2:15) and were told rooms were not ready and to come back at 2:45. OK, no problem ... check was at 3pm. When we came back at 2:50 rooms were still not ready and there were a dozen or so others waiting to check in. We finally got checked in at 3:10. They are trying to hire...

You can walk to the Ringling complex from this motel and the Ringling complex is well worth a full day. There are also a few good restaurants within walking distance as well. The hotel is a typical member of the Choice hotel group in that it is not 'upper end' nor is it 'lower end.' You get a clean, safe...

This motel is hidden away at the end of a street opposite the airport road, which I thought was quite unusual. The motel was fine, the desk clerk was pleasant and our room and bathroom was clean. We didn't get up in time for breakfast, so I can't comment about that. Good value.

The staff was so helpful, they helped with printing boarding passes for flight home, the food was what can be expected for a hot breakfast, but the service is worth the stay. The counter help and breakfast staff great, the maintenance staff worked fast and efficient. The stay was worth a lot more then cost. The rooms were awesome

We stayed from DEc. 26-to Jan.3 had No problems at all. The room was clean, helpful staff, and a mini fridge and microwave I was not expecting. Good free breakfast. The pool is small but fairly clean and private with palms and small trees. My cell phone worked fine and I have a Cdn. phone. Always got a parking space....

I recently stayed here twice, a few weeks apart. It really made me realize how the guests present at a particular moment really affect the atmosphere in the hotel. I was present for the same incident that Lisa J. mentioned and was also kind of sketched out. A few weeks later, I had to return to Sarasota. The second time,...

In other reviews you'll see people saying the price is right, and that this hotel is a good value, etc etc. And that the hotel staff are pleasant and very easy to work with. All of those things are true-- superficially, at least-- but come with significant caveats. If you listen to nothing else in this review, listen to this:...
