Great Location

The hotel was clean, the pool was nice, but I have to say the breakfast was great! There were many different choices and it was probably the best breakfast I've had in a hotel. The location of the hotel was less than ten minutes to the beach and there were many restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Nice place...

It was a good stay. I had booked a smoking room by mistake but thought I'd be able to swap but found out that was impossible. I was really worried about staying in a room that had a strong cigarette odor. It didn't. I took air fresheners with me and put in the room and that was enough. The staff was very nice and helpful and the free breakfast was good. It is in an odd spot with an odd entrance behind a bar and grill but it's a good location. You're close to the beach and other point of interest like restaurants, shopping, etc. I will stay here again.

Perfect Location,Clean and comfortable.

Just what we were looking for to do some beach photography and relaxation. More than enough restaurants within walking distance also within 5 minutes of all the local favorites. Easy ride to and from the Interstate.

The only thing I would have changed was the bed. It was hard and I could feel the springs on my back.

Very close to munchies 420 cafe as featured on man vs food. Also close to yoders amish restaurant. Try to check these places out. The pie at yoders is to die for!

A sleeper couch would have made it perfect

Hotel was great and room was clean. If the room would have had a sleeper couch, it would have been absolutely perfect.

Good location

Hotel is dated, but a really good location for Siesta Key. Not enough room when hotel is busy for breakfast to have a seat but the hotel was pretty full during my stay. Would recommend this hotel because of its location.

Harry's sports bar is next to the hotel and if you don;t want to go far you will get a good meal for a reasonable price.
