I don't normally give harsh reviews, but this hotel earned them. It is not in a very good area, we were initially given keys to an occupied room and had to switch, the air conditioner was stuck at a specific temperature and couldn't be moved, the
bed was hard as a rock, the 2 pillows on the bed were miniature size and the room smelled musty.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Yummy Chinese restaurant down the street is fantastic.
Fortunately there are plenty of hotels in Sarasota. The rooms were cleanish, the entire place needs to be updated. I usually do not take my shoes off in hotels but I had driven a long way, my feet were black almost instantly. The Palmetto bugs,
yes its Florida but stll there are things called exterminators. Yes its an outdoor pool but it looked like no one had skimmed it in days. I am grateful that I had many other friends staying in Sarasota at the same time and could hang out with them. Definitely not staying there or recommending that some one else stay there.
1st. room we were given was not cleaned.They gave us an up grade ground floor. Carpet was so dirty you could not walk on it without getting your feet dirty. There were wasps between the slider and screen found a wasp nest up in corner outside
slider also there was a conduit with a live wire hanging out above slider. Reported the above to desk help but nothing was done.When we checked out requested a receipt they said that they only send email receipts, Very uncomfortable with this
I have stayed at this hotel before and had rated it "the feeling of old Florida," and while it still remains about the same, I did NOT appreciate having a heater that did not work and it was very cold (for Florida), in the 40s at night. Of course,
they knew about it but, alas, did absolutely nothing. My room in the morning was in the 50s. So much for the "Feeling of old Florida." Perhaps old! too

Long walk from hotel
The great museums of the Ringlings (art, circus, and the Ringling mansion), the Asolo Theater, the historic Asolo, and the campuses of both New College and the Univ. of South Florida, Sarasota, are all quite close There is also a fine Sarasota restaurant, "Barnacle Bills," just across the street, more or less.
I arrived late - 10:30 so went right to bed not having time to use the pool, amenities, etc. The receptionist was very helpful in getting my luggage upstairs. There is no elevator and I am 65+ with 2 new knees. It was pleasant but I did not have
time enough to get $104 worth. It is really for people who plan to spend several days there.
Hotel was older but well kept. Bed firm which is good for back trouble. Shower handle need to be fixed but it was clean. Air worked. TV has very limited channels. Would stay again if in area. Greatest resturant is Yummy House down the road. Always
a line waiting. Prices seemed high until food came. Really huge portions. Overall, had good time and would be back to hotel.
