The hotel was a last minute idea for my friend and I to check out Sarasota for the New Years' eve party. Because of the previous reviews I was little apprehensive about my stay, but because the room was in our budget I booked there. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by a wonderful staff and surprisingly a wonderful clean room. It was spacious and I was shocked that I was nearly deterred by previous reviews about this hotel.
Because we had checked in earlier than our normal party time, we went and spent time at their pool and it is soo beautiful and the trees that surround the pool area make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise instead of a busy neighborhood.
Also remember to checkout this bar they have on site as my friend and I had our New Year drinks there after the "Pineapple Drop" in Sarasota. Their My Tais (spelling?) are strong so pace yourself.
On the whole it was too short of a stay as we had to be back to work Monday, but we will definitely be back on a longer weekend
