Look For Another Hotel

Posted May 27, 2017
Pros: Reasonably priced. Location: Close to the beach and restaurants. Cons: Rooms were unclean & had an unpleasant smell. I booked this hotel because of the positive reviews I read on Expedia. Staff was friendly upon check-in, and the hotel is well maintained from the outside. However, thereafter our stay was a HORRIBLE one. We were first assigned to a room that was FILLED with bugs, they were crawling on the walls, bathroom sink, and furniture. We called the front desk to notify them of the issue, and we were then assigned to a different room. The second room was just as awful as the first one. Although we didn't see any bugs in that room (except for 2 or 3) the room was very unclean. Floors were NOT vacuumed, dust covered the furniture, bathroom smelled like urine, linen was dirty and looked like they were not changed. We also saw a HUGE cockroach outside. The smell of the room was unbearable, it smelled like mold and humidity. Please DO NOT stay at this hotel. Yes the price is cheap, but it is not worth it.

Nice Hotel close to the airport.

The room don't have a minibar. It is nice to have a chance to buy a bottle of water if the guest runs out of it late night...

We are pleased to know that our location was a great fit for your travel needs. We will look into options in the future of perhaps having a minibar in the room but there is a microfridge that does keep beverages cold.

Pleasantly surprised!

Posted May 20, 2017
Pros: The modern decor and furnishings of the room as well as the location.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Walmart minutes away, historic downtown 5 mins, Siesta Key 9 miles.
What a great little motel. Excellent location to historic downtown, Walmart minutes away as well as places to eat and 15 minutes drive to Siesta Key. As a motel I was not quite expecting the quality of room furnishings that I got for the price. It looked like it's been recently updated and was very clean, had modern decor and furnishings with a large fridge, and microwave. There were plenty of sockets by the bed something that seems to be lacking in most motels. The bathroom was very nice with a really good powerful shower. I slept really well and found the king bed to be especially comfortable. The breakfast although basic and not the greatest quality, it was complimentary and certainly enough to set you up for the day. For the price I paid it was an absolute bargain. My one regret I had only booked for one night and wish I had stayed for longer. I will be returning next year for a few nights as had a wonderful experience here compared to the other motels I have stayed in during my trip in Florida.
