Don't do yard work while I"m still asleep!!!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 9, 2020
VERY clean, very cute place in ideal location on the beach. Lovely, safe, and they had availability. However at 9am when I was sleeping, the gas trimmers roared by my room a dozen times. Yard work continued VERY LOUDLY for over an hour.Cant they do this in the afternoon or a whatever peak times are for people not being home? And the grass didn't NEED any trimming. It winter and not the growing season.
Date of stay: February 2020
Room Tip: Wall AC cord lays on one of the beds

I didn't realize this time of year would be so expensive. It was way before the Spring Break timeframe, but I'm now aware this was "in season." Clean place but quite outdated. It did have Gulf beach access and the beach was wonderful. In this case, you are staying for the beach. There were many other places but they were extremely expensive.

Room tip: Room was clean. No room for luggage, had to put suitcases on the itty bitty porch.

Great location right on Lido Beach. It's walk-able to St Armand's yet far enough away to be quiet. This is old Florida style. Very casual and low key and very comfortable and unpretentious. Units could use some upgrading but it's really nice as is.

Old style motel apparently one of the first in the region. Convenient to St. Armands Circle Sarasota Longbow and Siesta Key. Rooms vary but some are very small and aged. Very friendly and attentive staff kept very clean with on site laundry library and rental bikes. Nice heated pool wonderful beach access. Good internet service, fresh coffee in the office in the morning. If you’re looking for modern high rise with all amenities pass on this. But for comfort with beach access at a fair price this place is good.
No restaurants or shopping within short walking distance. Beach chairs provided. No beach towels. Hair dryer in our room.

Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Quiet neighbourhood. On the beach. Close to restaurants. A perfect place to go to relax and recharge, where the quality of getaway depends on the location (oh that fabulous beach!) and being with loved ones.

Room tip: Just relax and take in the view.

Room 301A was absolutely terrible. Kitchen, bath and bedroom in particular were small, dingy and old. and the room was poorly equipped. The location of the motel was okay and we cannot comment on other rooms.

Room tip: Room301A needs a lot of work and we would not stay in it.
