visiting college student

checked in early and went out for lunch, came back after regular check in time to go to my home and it wasn't clean. went to the front desk clerk, who called housekeeping...had to wait in the lobby until the room was cleaned...wasn't offered a different room. the room was not clean, old spills on the baseboards, "something" on the clock that didn't work, mold in the corners of the bathroom....

A stop along the way

Not the best of all the places we stayed along the way. Guy at the desk was slow as molasses and not much of a front desk greater. Dirty towels from a previous guest in the bathroom. Tub could have been cleaned better and didn't drain while showering. Bed comforter had cigarette burn holes in it.

Cruddy in an ugly neighborhood

The first thing I had to do was open the toilet tank and adjust the flapper so it would stop running. On the plus side, it did have a fridge and microwave. TV and bed were OK but blanket skimpy and bedspread the typical DNA sample that slides off. Gloomy, scuzzy room, poor lighting, icky carpet. When the people next door come in and their door slams, it sounded like a bomb going off. You can park right in front of your door which is good. Breakfast wasn't bad - only hot food was waffles you make yourself. Lobby/breakfast room is pleasant. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there again...grim.

Sarasota Comfortable Enough

Friendly desk staff - helpful with area restaurants and to-do's. Breakfast was plentiful and crowd friendly! The shower fan and hairdryer didn't work - otherwise comfortable bed and clean accomodations.
