We stayed for a night, and was pleased with the hotel. A lot of places to eat in the neighborhood, and the hotel is located quite close to the beaches at Longboat Key and Anna Maria. Hot breakfast, quite basic, but ok. Good size room, a bit dated, but clean.

This was a very welcome surprise. I wasn't expecting the level of perfection that this property displayed. Clean, modern, well maintained. Employees went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. Breakfast was better than any I've had for free. You can tell that the management knows how to give a good guest experience. We did have...

I stay here every time I'm in Bradenton. The staff is helpful, the hotel is clean and comfortable, and breakfast is excellent! There are dozens of restaurants all around and it's only a few miles away from the beach. The manager, Chris Sears, is great. I doubt you'll have a problem here, but if you do, he'll make it right.

Great property to stay at. We were visiting friends and this is close to the beach with free shuttle to the beach and back. Two nice pools and hot tubs. Very kid friendly property with a kids play area. Very good hot breakfast I would recommend this property.

I have to thank Carla for the great assistance for getting me the last room for that night. She was accurate and quick, always smiling. When I came in there was a warm and welcoming athmosphere. She has excellent skills in English, Spanisch and Portuguese (Brazil) language. I'm pleased to recommend this hotel.
