Ok hotel for the price.

Staff was great. Hotel a little outdated could use some upgrades. Carpets could be steam cleaned and could use some new mattresses.

No problems, basic services are provided, such as TV, towels and all basic toiletries. Room well presented and daily cleaning well coordinated.

It was easy to find and the rates very reasonable

Posted May 2, 2015
Cons: need to begin to trade out the window air conditioners so that they are a little quieter, but when you been in the sun all day sleep came easy.
Location: nice location on a major highway and everything close by, plus a sub way.
The free breakfast was great and fresh, the pool was nice and the hotel not too far from Siesta Beach. I plan to stay there again, but will pay a few extra bucks and stay pool side plus they have a refrigerator and microwave. There is a friendly bar on site, so it is close to your room. The staff and the maids are very friendly and easy to talk to, plus there was plenty of ice. Leo

The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The grounds and pool area were very clean. It was a very quiet and a relaxing stay. A beautiful lobby and breakfast area. We would stay there again.

rooms smells from cleaning spray or chemicals.

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: location, size,
Cons: could be a sweet, clean smaller hotel. Needs a loving overhaul !
Location: Centrally located, close to a lot of attractions.
Had to air the room our for half an hour to bring down terrible smell of "air freshener" or other chemicals. Most of the A/Cs are very noisy and cheapens the place.

nettes Hotel in guter Lage zur Innenstadt/Strand

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Die Lage, nähe zur Innenstadt, Airport und auch zu den Stränden.
Cons: In der Beschreibung erwähnen, dass das Hotel wirklich recht einfach ist.
Location: Direkt auf der Tamiami, Airport in Nähe, Innenstadt mit SCAT Bus zu erreichen, Museum in der Nähe und nicht allzu weit vom Strand.
Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm, das Personal sehr freundlich und der Poolbereich gemütlich. Die kleine Bar war auch recht nett, da man von dort zum Zimmer laufen konnte. Für einen kurzen Aufenthalt würde ich das Hotel empfehlen, für einen längeren nicht unbedingt, dazu ist die Unterkunft zu einfach. Das Frühstück war eben amerikanischer Standard, nichts für Leute mit großem Appetit, für mich aber okay.

My unpleasant stay

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Remove the carpet, fix the slow plumbing, debug the place,wash everything, through out the curtains,repaint everything, through out old bedding
Location: Great location and close to shopping, beach and museums
Worse than a motel 6. The carpet was as old as the hotel. The room had an unpleasant smell. The bedding was old and thin. Pillows flat. The curtain was half down when I walked into the room. No elevator. The place felt dirty. I had to leave my suitcase in my car and only take upstairs what I needed because they had roaches. When I told the desk person she told me I must have been mistaken. I could not bring food or drink to my room because of the roaches. I had to stay there a week. I managed to leave 1 day early, and they said they would not refund me the difference. The older lady at the desk was unpleasant and belittled employees in front of people. The photos were misleading. I will never go back to that miserable place again.

Pros: I was in the area for a wedding....... The only good thing about this Hotel was that it was close to the venue.
Cons: This Hotel Needs a Major Restoration. The conditions of this place is are absolutely terrible.
Location: We only stayed one night. We were in the area for a wedding so all we needed was a place to stay over night.
This place is falling apart. I've stayed in a $40.00 a night "Motel 6" in better conditions. Honestly I should get a refund. I have pictures of dirty coffee maker, broken molding.

Old but nice.

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: I enjoy saving money, so I didn't mind not having the best that money can buy. It was clean and there were no bugs or critters.
Cons: Everything could be improved, I'm sure it is hard to keep up with an older facility like that.
Location: I liked the location. We very much enjoyed The Sarasota Jungle Gardens just a few blocks away.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at The Golden Host Resort. It is an old but clean facility, it does smell a bit old though. There is so much to do in Sarasota that we were not in the room much. The kids enjoyed the pool and the breakfast was ok.

Find Something Else

Posted Apr 4, 2015
This motel is dirty, outdated and in a location not within walking distance to anything. Housekeeping was yelling at one another half the time. We actially overheard them saying not to clean the toilet in someone's room. We were only provided 3 towels for 4 people and we were denied more, and the coffee maker and the bathroom light didn't work, The pool and shuffleboard were nice, though. This place has potential to be comfortable, but needs updating and care.
