good view from the window, wonderful breakfast and breakfast room, good furniture in the room,new mattress.A sort distance to the best sea food restaurants of Sarasota A little noisy from the road and in flying planes, the smell of old carpets.Reasonable price.

the owner was very nice and went above his duties to help me out. if in the area you need a place to stay this is it, the bar served food that was very good and priced fair. the pool was heated.

I would not recommend this property for the price being charged. This is a very old facility that’s had a partial facelift, but remains pretty grimy. The rooms are cleaned, all except the carpets which smell of urine, mildew, and immediately turn your feet black when you walk on them (and we even changed rooms twice because of the smells). The pool area is okay, but has limited seating and shares space with the bar/restaurant open to everyone so don’t expect a leisurely swim or sunbathing experience. The housekeeping staff were great, as were most of the staff we encountered. The hotel is on a major road so there is a good amount of traffic noise in the rooms, but decent dining to choose from. Overall, stay here if you have to, but not if it costs more than $90/night. After a few nights we switched to a hotel actually near the airport for half the price which was impeccable.

The cleaning laides were super! The bathroom was horrible. Door did not shut,shower knob was backwards , fan did not work,toliet did not flush hafe the time. I would not stay agian.

Room was fine...but if you get one facing the highway there is a lot of traffic noise which was annoying.

The exterior of the Hotel was in horrible condition. I paid extra for a room with a view of the marina and it was a little misleading as the hallways are on the outside of the window so you can’t leave the draperies open while you’re in the room. I should have known better as I can’t remember ever having a good experience at a Ramada. I thought because it was a Wyndham property it would be different. I was wrong. Never again will I make the mistake of booking another Ramada and I’ll now think twice about booking a Wyndham

Excellent the improvements are awesome service employees and front desk was way better than ever i will recommend and will continue booking too

Dirty room and lining, bugs crawling in the room and the hallway, Misleading customers. I paid $188/ night ,this is outrageous. I don’t recommend to anyone this hotel which should be a minus low star motel.

They remodeled is way better rooms breakfast tiki bar food areas around lots of employees working and cleaning is definitely way way better than before good job for the management and improvements done price went up a bit but everything else is being like that so keep it up guys im definitely going back soon

Location is nice but property isn't really what's on the pictures. Its old, not clean and disappointing. Hope they update the picture. I will definitely not stay here again. Sorry.

The tikki bar stuff very poor to the customers everything else average 7 of 10

Overall it's a nice property with a nice & friendly staff. The tiki bar that's on the property has good food, drinks & a friendly staff.

We arrived early and needed to get into our room early to prepare for a party. Jennifer at the desk was awesome. Gave us a room which didn’t have a king size bed that we asked for but we appreciated it. Rooms need total revamp. No elevators so u have to carry suitcases up stairs. Our door to room barely closed. Very small room. Bathtub old and stained. Mattress terrible and air conditioner barely put out cold air. I believe they have many locals living there as there were several rooms with plants, shades and people smoking weed and cigarettes. The pool area was gorgeous and very clean. So was the reception area. I wouldn’t stay there again.

The staff was super friendly. It.wad a really safe area, the breakfast lady was the sweetest thing. There was also a great pool located next to the tiki bar !

Location was nice, but my room had plumbing issues. Water in tube didn't go down for hours after shower and water flow at the sink slow to a trickle. How ever place was recently renovated. Don't know what happened to the plumbing.

Unkept and exterior dirty needs some tidying up and TLC. Poor quality and interior of room bad Sheetrock and no hair dryer. I felt like I was staying in subsidized housing and lots of people loitering and smoking. One guy had a Weber BBQ in the parking lot. Big wedding with drinking in the parking lot. The pictures look good but the non waterfront bldgs avoid.

Dear Pavel, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am so happy to hear you loved our views, breakfast and furniture. I am also happy to say that we are currently in the process of removing all the carpet in our rooms and replacing with vinyl flooring. We sincerely appreciate the business.

Dear Jessica - Thank you very much for sharing your comments about the room you stayed in during your recent visit. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to resolve those issues and confirm a couple of details if you would allow me a few minutes of your time to speak. I am available during normal business hours at the property. It is important to us as we are currently making some enhancements to our bathrooms and we need to get this room sooner rather than later. We appreciate your business and hope to speak with you about this experience. Best regards,
