The courtyard, pool area, and staff were all very nice. Our room desperately needed an update, primarily the bathroom. I didn't expect to see as much rust and mildew in our bathroom for a hotel that is rated excellent, very disappointing. There was also tile missing in our bathroom, and the hot water was limited. We were on the bottom floor and could hear EVERYTHING in the room above us. We were so looking forward to our trip to Anna Maria island but if this is what $165 provides, and still several blocks from the beach, we will look for another island next year with more appropriate reviews for the true quality of the room. It was very disappointing, not at all excellent.

Charming and Close to the Beach

Posted Dec 5, 2017
Pros: See above
Location: My girlfriend and I enjoyed an amazing meal at The Feast Restaurant at Holmes Beach then walked over to the Doctor's Office, a truly fascinating bar.
Sunrise is a quaint, quiet little hotel with an amazing pool that's within walking distance of great restaurants and shops. It has excellent parking and very nice rooms. Be sure to visit the Donut Experiment which is close to the hotel.

Nice, friendly hotel

Posted Oct 15, 2017
Pros: Location and overall retreat atmosphere.
Cons: I like it the way it is.
Location: One of the larger restaurants is a 3 minute walk away. Rental store for bikes and other fun transportation devices is a 5 minute walk away.
Tropical setting on a tropical island. Beaches, stores, and restaurants are within walking distance. Great place to relax and unwind.

Lovely private venue close to beach and best restaurant on the Island. Amanda at front desk was especially cordial and helpful. Have been visiting Anna Maria for decades and didn't know this hotel was there, it's tucked away in a quiet residential area.

We loved the Sunrise Gardens resort!!! The location, the room, the pool, the staff all of it. You can walk to restaurants, the city pier or the beach. The room was perfect with a kitchenette and living room space that are separate from the bedroom. The room was clean, the bed comfy. We have already booked a return trip.
