Great Location and relaxing propertyPosted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: NICE ACCOMODATIONS, MATTRESS A LITTLE WORN 6A, otherwise everything was fantastic. Close to beach and shopping and dinining
Cons: Better mattresses especially 6a
This is a great place for those who want to stay close to beach and nightlife on St Armands Circle for a budget price

Cool little place.Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Proximity to beach and St. Armands Circle.
Cons: Cleanliness of floors.
Location: Great shopping and beach bumming
This is a cool little place in the middle of a quaint residential district. Walking distance to amazing beach and St. Armands Circle. We liked our room which was huge but the floors were very dirty. Otherwise great alternative to a hotel experience. Probably really good for a longer term stay.

Lido IslanderPosted Oct 24, 2014
When we first arrived in the room and went to use the restroom, there was no toilet paper, not even a back up roll stored in the vanity. We had to go outside and downstairs to get it. The room was clean, the major issue that we had was the sound, we had 3 kids with us and everything they did echoed in the room, which was very evident when we walked outside closed the door and stood outside and it was like we were in the room with them. So if you are quiet people and don't make much noise this place is for you. But if you are traveling with kids than I probably wouldn't recommend it.

Close to everythingPosted Oct 24, 2014
One nice thing is parking around the square and the beach is free so that is nice. Hotel walking distance to beach. Hotel just average but def a deal for the price we paid.

Location: Great location, kayaking just down the road, close walk to the beaches and to St Armands circle. Quick drive to downtown Sarasota with shopping,etc.
Great little find, it was exactly what we wanted, something low key but nice. The big hotels are nice but sometimes it is nice to have the added extras, couch, kitchen, and great outdoor space.

Awesome location! Perfect for a big family!Posted Oct 1, 2014
Cons: Towels, update shower
Location: Great, beach and st. Armand's square minutes away. Surrounding home are spectacular.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo, downstairs. It was clean, cozy and spacious! There were 7 of us and we were comfortable for all 3 days we stayed. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The only thing I can suggest is new towels. They are a bit ratty. Other than that I can highly recommend it, it's a home away from home. NOT A HOTEL. So if you want a boring run of the mill hotel don't book here. If you want cozy then you will love it! You can also use the pool at their sister property. Beach is a 2 minute walk away, snack bar, pool and everything u need there.

Great locationPosted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness and homey feeling
Cons: The mattresses leave a lot to be desired. No support left in them.
The location is great for walking to the beach and walking to St Armand's Circle. If it had not rained, it would have been perfect!

Quant hotel near the beachPosted Sep 24, 2014
Hotel was nice. Kindof self service, you dont really see the staff and you can just grab the stuff you need (towels, bed linens). Its a cute hotel, nothing fancy, but perfect for someone on a budget, who basically just needs a room to sleep in. Stores are very close by, and the beach is only a block away. Overall a good experience.

Awful PlacePosted Aug 29, 2014
I booked two nights here, but could not take the terrible conditions. Very small room, paper thin walls allowing sounds from other rooms. Old, outdated furniture and bed. Poor ventilation - ceiling fan above bed. No staff on duty after 3 PM. When I arrived at 4 PM note on front of building said to look in the mail box for instructions. A sheet of paper in the box gave me my room number and said room was unlocked with keys for me inside. Telephone number was given to call for any other info needed. No security on premises. Buyers beware about this place. Expedia truly disappointed me on this purchase.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We are a laid back small and unique property located near the beach in an exclusive area of million dollar homes.
