Dirty room an bathroom bad neighborhood Would not recommend

The hotel was in a pretty rough part of town and the breakfast/amenities were far below average, but the room was clean. If you are looking for a cheap stopover in a motel, this will do the trick.

The gentleman whom runs the hotel is very friendly. When I arrived, he gave a room choice. I requested wake up call for that night, he then asked if I wanted it for the week. I said yes but only received it the one night. I requested not to be bothered because I was working Midnights and needed to sleep in the afternoon. The first day the maid pounded on the door waking me up. The second day, she pounded 3 times, waking me up twice. After that I was left alone. The carpet and bathroom floor was filthy. One of the lamps had mold growing on it. I saw 2 cockroaches and was woken up by a bug biting me. The bed was very comfortable. The towels were as thin as rags. The staff does try hard to do their best to make you happy but came up short with wake up calls, disturbing guest, and room cleanliness. It had good location to where I worked. Im not sure if I would stay again.

I booked this place not expecting much...However I was pleasantly surprised. The room was a decent size, everything was pretty clean, and in a great location. Needless to say, out of all the hotels I stayed at in this price range...It is by far the best. I WILL be back.

Hotel room needs updating. Sheets were stained and bedding wasn't much better. Asked for more towels after we left the pool and we're told no. Maid in morning tried kicking us out at 10:18. Even asked if we planned on paying for another night. Not so good....

Low cost... Not gorgeous, but clean. If you want save money, good choice.

we had access to all beaches while at this hotel. The staff was friendly, but the room needed to be a little more clean.

The staff were xtra kind and nice.Breakfast was perfect and included.Room was quiet even though it was off highway.We would definately return.

they were fleas,shower curtain very dirty.i dont like

needs that special something . breakfast poor quality , room run down .

Lightbulbs missing, many electrical outlets didn't work. Coffeemaker didn't work, was taken away, but not replaced until requested. Wireless service was sporadic. Other guests last couple days were noisy.

I've stayed in a lot of budget hotels before as I played college hockey and sometimes we rough it. But this hotel was EASILY the dirtiest I have ever been to. 1. Reserved a non-smoking room - was only given the option of a smoking room. 2. When we got to the door it had been left open to "air" out - who knows for how long or what had crawled in. 3. There were burn holes in the comforter and the blanket underneath. Stains on all the towels and wash cloths. 4. There are surcharges per day for use of the MICROWAVE! 5. The tv provided was awful. Honestly, we spent very little time in the room but when I'm in bed I would at least like a tv that didn't have tracking problems like it was 1984. Additionally, the tv had no remote and you could only manually change the channel down, the 'up' option was broken. 6. The AC was so loud it was difficult to sleep. I honestly thought it was going to start on fire a couple times. 7. There were huge splatter stains on the walls in the bathroom...not really sure what from. Again, I'm not typically a complainer. I've slept on a floor in an Econo Lodge with my hockey team before and felt cleaner. Do yourself a favor, spend the extra $10/day and stay at the Days Inn, Holiday Inn, ect. Actually, you're probably better off sleeping at a bus stop.

Convenient to Anna Marie Island with its beaches, as well asother sites such as the Mixon Fruit Farm and The Ringling Museum. Not too far from Siesta Key beach and Myakka River State Park. Great time!

this hotel was nice and the people were so amazing they r so sweet there would def go back

Nice staffing, could use a list of tv channels, and better decor

It was ok, the ac took forever to cool off the room. So most of the first day was spent a little hot and most in the room. Other than that everything else seem to be just as expected.

The room was old looking and the doors all stuck open and had a hard time closing. there was just too much paint in the door jams. The cont. brkfast was bad also. there was no donuts, just packaged fruit muffins and English muffins, along with cold cereal, The light in front of the bath sink had the wrong old ballast in it for the newer style bulbs being used. It worked half the time.

The breakfast options was small nothing really there. The tv didn't have the channels it said had fewer and remote didn't work with tv. For a very cheap price was pretty good

service was nice, although sink was clogged, and the temp control on the shower did not work. I reported this to the front desk twice, someone tried to fix sink, but still clogged, and then also dripping from the drain.

It was horrible...first we noticed that the door was hard to open from the inside. It took both of us to turn the handle. Then we went to get a drink of water and there was no cold water...none it was all burning hot. To take a bath you had to run the water then let it set to cool off, then we went to go swimming and found the cold water. It was like ice water! The fridge didn't work when you pluged in the microwave. I wanted to watch the local ABC station but there was no ABC station when I went to the front dest to ask he said he was eating and would look after he was done. He never came down to the room. The next day I asked and was told what station it was but when we turned it to that station it wasn't ABC so we missed the finals of Dancing with the Stars. I went to the front desk to see about switching rooms and they said I couldn't because I booked through [...] and so I had to stay in the same room. We were unable to have the free breakfast until the last morning and discovered why it was free. The cereal was old and stale and the butter was frozen. The milk tasted funny, we left and went to McDonald's.
