Reasonable price, great location for what I need to do in Florida

Clean, stylish old-school motel vibe. Nice large landscaped courtyard around the pool area. Very close to the airport, with grocery and restaurant choices with short driving distance.

The staff was great, we loved the pool and the tiki bar. Next time we come I would ask for a room around the pool area.

No shelves to put personal hygiene items on in shower. No suitcase stands .

It is a good place overall, worth for the money spent

This hotel is very unique. The old school tiki style is a lot of fun. Staff is super kind and helpful. Theres a mini fridge/freezer and microwave in each room which is helpful. The bathroom was probably the only downside to the stay. It was small, and while you can tell theyre working on upgrades, its still lackluster and the shower doesnt get very hot.

The restoration of this hotel is progressing nicely with a few minor improvements left to do. Great location, very friendly staff, cute Tiki Bar.

Just shouldn’t recommend

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!
