This hotel made our trip! Beautiful place.

Posted Aug 31, 2016
Pros: Everything. It was perfect for a couple's getaway.
Location: There's not a lot to do in Ospry. If you have a rental car, you can go into Sarasota where there's a ton of things to see.
This is such a great hotel. Don't even know where to start! When we first arrived, we were greeted by some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. They made sure we got the best room based on our preferences. I wanted something close to the bar, so we could walk out to the pool and have a drink (or ten). Once we were checked-in, we inspected the room, which was super clean and "trendy". I even liked the bathrooms, which is something I'm always picky about. The beds are so comfy, that we had zero trouble getting to sleep at night. The beds were so comfortable, that we probably took way more naps than we should have, but whatever, vacation... I LOVED the little tiki bar and pool outside of our room. There was sand surrounding the pool, so it felt like a beach. Plus the bartenders were friendly and very accommodating. At night, they had entertainment so the guests had something to do onsite. This was nice because we didn't have to Uber back and forth to any restaurants or bars. Speaking of restaurants...they have a great restaurant inside of the hotel called the Brasserie 41. I was a little leery about some of the reviews of this restaurant. But from our experience, the food and service was top notch. We visit a lot of restaurants, and I can honestly say that the food was on-par with many of the more expensive restaurants we've been to. The Bentley made our vacation absolutely perfect. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

Pros: Have been there in the past and loved the now burnt Tiki Bar
Cons: notification that your reservation could not be kept because of a fire more that 24 hours prior - they had 3 days after the fire to notify me.
They had a fire at the Hotel restaurant on Monday - July 25th. My reservations were for Thursday, July 28th and Friday, July 29. I called and sent e mails on the status of the hotel due to the fire. I couldn't get a response from anyone. Finally on Wednesday evening (the day prior to my check in) I get a call stating that the rooms were not available as they had no restaurant, Tiki Bar, pool or TV due to the fire. They said they would put me in a room in their other hotel on the same property - Virage - but still no pool, restaurant, Tiki bar or TV and they wanted to charge me $79 a night!!! No Way!!!

Great hometown surprise

Clean, modern furniture and bathroom with plate glass shower and wooden built in Towel and toiletry storage. Pleasant tile. Verticles instead of standard hotel drapery. Ac worked well and was new. Room and ac were odor free. Loads of pillows firm and fluffy - bed was good for a hotel - I'm spoiled with a fantastic pillow top at home and rarely am happy with hotel offerings. Nice outdoor bar /tiki pool and lounge cabanas. Cleaning staff was kind and did not knock - ...30 minutes after checkout time :)

Very nice hotel close to everything.

With our flight being delayed for 2hrs, the staff was very helpful with holding our room. Slept thru the night with no interruptions. I would recommend this to anyone.

The room was comfortable, however there was a strong odor that was permanent. The air conditioner was dirty.

Hopeful ....

We visited the Bentley every year. I have noticed a big change in service. Gone is the continental breakfast and the room where we would dance the night away. It is for private functions. We had 5 rooms. While the rooms and maids did an awesome job in cleaning them, I noticed that some paint was peeling from the air conditioner section and some of the tables in the room were wobbly. Some of the fixtures did not work, due to burnt out light bulbs. Don't they check for this when customers checkout? The pool area was still in great shape, but the bar was closed during the week when I was there. Either that, or the bartender was off. I really do like this place and hope it can keep up with the times.
