reasonable place for the price

This place was ok, but it was in a strip mall. The parking lot was noisy right outside the door.

Bittersweet experience

Great location, close to the beach and restaurants (3 miles or less). Has a Starbucks and a Win Dixie across the street, too. Rooms on the first floor might have a humid odor and cockroaches. The second floor is cleaner. The hotel looks old, doesn't have too much curb appeal: rooms bathrooms and beds seem to have been updated but doors, windows and everything else looks original. Pillows are terrible. It's 30-40 more expensive than Super8 but the experience was mostly the same.

Comfortable stay

I found the staff to be helpful, the location perfect and generally adequate for my needs. They were doing some repairs and giving it a facelift at the time I was there. I was visiting family in Sarasota, and I will stay again when I come back in the future.

Extra guest (unwanted)

I got a great deal - $20 per night cheaper than the rack rate. The place was probably a former motel as all the doors to the rooms open to the outside. As a result I had a small unwelcome guest of the 6-legged variety with a brown exoskeleton for 2 nights. He didn't make it through the third. Next time I'll be staying at a hotel where all the doors are inside. But, overall they do a good job - the rooms are well-serviced, the breakfast is bountiful, the location is great, and the staff are pleasant.

Great mid-town location

Nice older property, well kept. Great mid-town location close to everything. I would stay there again considering the room price which was a good value and the location. Nice breakfast served at no charge

Not far from beaches and downtown

The hotel was average. For the price on a Labor Day holiday I can't complain. Close to lido beach about 8 min drive and about 5 min away from downtown Main Street where they have alot of resturants and bars. The room was clean , however the tv volume went out. I called the front desk and it was fixed. Also there was a lamp that did not work . The hotel is not by any means fancy, but its great if you r looking for somewhere to sleep while u spend the day out on the beach or around the town. Location is good and price is good!

Roaches everywhere

The hotel needs a big clean in all rooms and lobby. The first night it was a roach in the bed and a roach in the TV desk. I called front desk and they changed me to another room. At 4:00am I woke up because a roach was walking over me.

Nice place to stay!

My family and I came to Sarasota to visit friends and to go to the beach. Although my wife has been to Sarasota, our family has not. The room was nice, the beds were really good, but could be a little more comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was much better than most we have experienced. The dining area was extremely clean and well maintained. The staff was very pleasant. We did not take advantage of the pool due to rain. I would highly recommend this motel to my friends.

Eat at the Yummy House Chinese Cuisine located north of the motel on Tamiami Tr. It was hands down the best Asian food we have ever had!
