Accomodating Staff. Must drive "miles" to obtain Restaurant food: only fastfood in the area. If staying more than 2 nights, be prepared to drive for food. Microwave/OLD...frig....poor freezer 7 minutes to Airport Terminal. Rooms clean with 21st century decor. Will book AGAIN when in the Area.

Good family value

Given the affordable rate on our room, we did not have high expectations. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly, assisted my husband and I as we wrangled with our 6 month old daughter and all of our luggage, and upgraded our room and provided extra linens without us having to ask for it. The refrigerator and microwave in the room were a nice bonus, as was the separate seating area.

Based on the rate I thought this would be my average budget hotel. It was very nice, fridge in every room, hard wood floors and very clean.

Convenient Motel Located in Sarasota, Florida

In spite of the fact that the room was located next to the elevator, my sleep was not disturbed. The included breakfast was ample and the beds were comfortable. For those who care, this motel accepts dogs. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Good for travellers without a taste for breakfast

Everything was very good. The breakfast a bit poor, and there are not too many places to go around.,
