Very nice place to stay in Sarasota. Close to shopping and dinning. Beautiful beach with rooms that are updated nicely. Dinning at the resort is too pricing but was good food. Would stay again and recommend

Perfect location but room need renovation!!

Posted May 19, 2015
Hotel was in a good location with access to beautiful beach. However, rooms needs renovation ASAP. Beds are small and hard. Pilllows uncomfortable. Looks like in the 90's. There was a huge cockroach in the kitchen area when I wake up on my first night there..

Overpriced - Bait and Switch

Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: Great beachfront views
Cons: Disclose remodeling is being done and to expect noise
Location: Very close to shopping area
Paid over $600 for a Suite for Mother's Day. My reservation called for a Suite with 2 bathrooms as I have 2 kids, but was given a different suite claiming it was an "upgrade" as it was recently remodeled. The bedroom had no door for privacy even though the hardware was hanging. Sunday morning we woke up to the sound of a chipping hammer as they are remodeling the hotel. Hotel should disclose that they are undergoing a remodel and warn guest of some noise to be expected. Overall, very bad experience.

Motel style room with no privacy whatsoever !

Posted May 4, 2015
Very noisy AC unit ! Room lucking privacy, facing walkway' motel style' . Shades had to be drawn the whole day ! Nice pool area and the beach, however , while swimming in the beach I had a 'close call' from the grey shark !!!! There was no warning from the beach/ hotel personnel about such possibility and no follow up after the incident ! There were at least 10 people who saw what happend and yet , no reaction from the hotel management ! Very scary experience !

Was great until our last night

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Stayed for 3 nights had been great until the last night. Was out all day got back a bit after 11pm to find out our AC was broken and it had been a 92 degree day so our room was 81 degrees called the front desk to find out that they didn't have a 24hr maintenance on call so the front desk said "oh that's not good but there is nothing they could do until the maintenance person came back at 7am" You would think that the money you pay for a room at a hotel like this would have someone on call. Told the front desk in the morning when we checked out and they did not offer to try and make it up to us!!!

Beautiful property

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: It is a lovely property in walking distance to shops and nice restaurants.
Cons: Room needed remodel.
Location: St. Armand's circle is in walking distance. Hotel does provide shuttle to circle. Lovely beach.
The property is lovely. The staff were professional and courteous. The rooms in the older building are in need of repair. The bathroom floor had cracked and loose tiles and the rug was worn through. Had a nice time and enjoyed the beach and pool area.

Hotel is bit outdated, but kept well

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: Location, local shuttle service, beach
Cons: Umbrellas included in the price. Air conditioner control could be better.
Location: the "Circle" is the place to eat and walk.
Hotel is nice, bit older, but OK. Fitness room re-notated, but extra elliptical would not hurt. Location is really nice, right on the beach and close to the shopping/eating area. Go to Fish and Fin, you will like it.
