Being refurbashed.

There was a sign on the office door saying "Call this number for help", not good, although there was someone at the desk. I wouldn't call it a resort, it's a motel. The rooms were small but clean. It's located in kind of a run down area. The Tiki bar was small and nothing special, plus it was full of obnoxiously loud drunks screaming at each other across the bar.

Modern Art Deco decor

We liked the bar and the pool. We never got any house keeping service after the first night they’re. We were fine except for the garbage in our room.

Nice older Florida Hotel that is being completely remodeled. The rooms are all new and comfortable. The Staff is very good and try to make your stay the best. I would definitely return on my next trip to Sarasota.

Great place, excellent service. They text you to make sure you have everything you need!

Aloha! I'm sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your stay. Our whole staff strives to make every guest feel like at home and do our best to make it an enjoyable vacation. We do close our lobby down at nights, that phone number & sign you saw is for the after hours service. Our Tiki Lounge is known for its cozy & intimate space. Everything from the artwork tikis (real & hard carved) is original. Most of the bar décor is the same since the 50's and we're the 4th oldest Tiki bar in the country. I think if we presented bar differently it may have given you the opportunity to see things differently but we understand a Tiki bar isn't for everyone. We hope you'll give us another shot in the future, safe travels back home!
