Excellent Overnight Accomodation

Hotel is older, but clean and adequate for an overnight stay. the wi-fi worked well for me. The pool looked inviting, though we did not come prepared to use it. Our major complaint was that several times the phone rang with no one there - just clicking sounds. After 4-5 times with in an hour we disconnected it and were happy thereafter! Fortunately, this was before we settled down for the night. The breakfast was adequate, but not "super." Folks in the neighborhood are likely wondering where their mosquitoes are breeding. Many are coming from the pool of water at the rear of the motel. Drainage there is inadequate.

Close to Sun City Center

The staff was friendly and the hotel is clean given it's age. The bed in the room we were in should have been replaced LONG ago - woke up both days with a backache.

Suited our needs perfectly.

Booked this hotel based on existing good reviews and was not disappointed. Though not of new construction, the building is very well kept and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and odor free. Would definitely recommend it for those visiting the area.

Not many choices in the area

The only reason we stay here is because it is close to Sun City Center. There are not many choices in the area and all the choices have issues. This hotel tends to have the least number of issues compared to the others nearby.

Cold Showers!

Showers were never more that lukewarm. Complained to the manager, but nothing was done to improve the situation.

Clean, but could be better.

Room was very clean, beds comfortable, and heat and AC worked fine. However, shower water temperature was luke warm at best, and had to hold handle down on toilet to get a complete flush. Also, the room door was often difficult to open. Door handle had to be pulled up, and not pushed down, like every other motel where we have stayed. Free breakfast was marginal, with no fruit available.

Change in Plans

While on a business trip to Port Charlotte, I had to add another stop at the last min. Having stayed at the Ruskin Inn about 2 years earlier, I quickly reserved another stay so I could accommodate another customer nearby. The Ruskin Inn was as I remembered it the last time. It's not as fancy as some but it is clean and comfortable with a very friendly and helpful staff. While the breakfast was basic, it was free and hot. It is very well situated right off the exit of the Interstate near a shopping center & places to eat. When I am in the area, I will stay there again.
