Pros: The staff, the entertainment, the restaurants, the private balconies, the beach
Cons: I believe they are in the process of improving everything and the owner was on site checking the remodeling.
Location: Great location on the beach. Times Square down the street also had good restaurants and entertainment-only a few blocks away either from the beach
The staff was great. location was great, but the first room they gave use had broken drawers, a big hole in the connecting door around the lock, it was not clean. They gave us a new room which was very good. However, it had started raiining when we went to move to the next room and we got stuck on the express elevator-had to pry the doors open, then had to walk in the rain-was raining sideways to the other 2 elevators. then one of those elevators broke down-it was fixed just before we left but the express wasn't. The other elevator was very slow-always had to wait a long time for it. They are in the process of remodeling-I think it will be a great hotel once they are finished. The restaurants were very good and the entertainment was great. The roof top had a marvelous view of the beach or the street. Nice sandy beach. However, didn't like that we had to pay 25.00 a day to use the chairs and umbrella-we could only afford to do it one day-and felt like we had to stay all day to get our moneys worh. Our last hotel in Sarasota provided chairs.

Party hotel on the beach

Posted Aug 27, 2014
If you are looking for a loud party hotel and like to stay up until 3 am this is the place for you. If you are looking more for a quiet relaxing vacation like I was, this is not the place fir you.

Older Hotel on the Beach

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Location -- right on the beach, and easy to walk to the shops and restaurants.
Cons: Add Wi-Fi to the rooms (they are working on this).
Location: Beach, shopping, restaurants, beach activities.
The hotel is older, but currently renovations are being made. The hotel is very clean and safe. Parking is limited due to the bar and restaurant on site, and the parking lot is rented out for beach parking, too. The hotel has live music until 2 AM every night. Kind of a party hotel. Right on the beach, they keep the beach clean.

never have to leave

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: party atmosphere and never have to leave the hotel, I usually get there and my rental car sits all week
Cons: the elevators there slow
Location: its great really don't have to drive anywhere most everything is walking distance unless u want to goo the island
I stay at the lani kai usually 4 times a year, have a great time every time had a really bad storm one night knocked out my ac and it was late in the evening and could not get it fixed, so they moved me to another room, total up grade great room lot more than I could of asked for, I ate good every night at the roof top restaurant, like normal gained a few lbs . I love the food there and price is really no biggie, what I really like is when I either go to the bar or restaurant, I don't even have to ask they already know what I want, overall I have a blast there and will continue to go back,, they treat me like family,, its not a really fancy hotel but if u like to eat and drink and and not drive everything u need is there

Hotel is in a great location. It has a well deserved reputation as party headquarters on the island - good and bad. Police were there a lot and lots of drunks around. Management/staff always on the offense.

GREAT location

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Cons: Elevator temperature and effeiciency
On the beach. Rooms are big and comfortable. Elevators are slow and hot. You really don't need to leave the hotel for anything. Loved the wooden table swings on rooftop restaurant. If you don't like to party at night, ask for a room on the quiet side. Alll rooms have amazing oceanfront views.

too many maintenance jobs all week

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Only the position on the city,near to the shopping places...
Cons: when they fix all my complains.
Too small freezer,no closet,no safe box,people working (comcast workers) on your room,no internet at all and no offer any discount.I don`t recommend this hotel and never comeback. On weekends cant get ice from ice machine because too many non guest using the facilities.Also the beach is not private and is full of boats thath contaminate the beach with the gas....... Are many placea around less expensive and with best conditions..
