Wonderful Stay!

Posted Sep 16, 2016
Pros: It was a small resort, and privately tucked away off Gulf Of Mexico Drive. Martha was so wonderful and accommodating. She made our stay really great.
Cons: Maybe some shampoo in the room we were in (220), but it was pretty well-stocked with whatever you might need if you wanted to prepare meals there.
Location: We haven't seen hardly any of all of the things to do and see, we are such beach-lovers we spend a lot of time in the water swimming and walking.
It was my birthday gift from my husband, a nice little get-away stay for my birthday on Longboat Key, one of our favorite places since discovering it several years ago. We've lived in the Tampa Bay area (Largo) for five years now and love it but REALLY love it down here. The water is so pristine and such a gorgeous color, and the quartz sand beaches are like something out of a dream. Longboat Key itself is a very beautiful, well-kept place and a pleasure to visit every so often from Largo. I really enjoyed this weekend here at The Beach on Longboat Key. It made my birthday weekend so memorable and special!

Taxes and fees were excessive and unknown until booked.

Way too expensive, not enough information. UGH

My stay was horrible. I was never informed that my key would be left out in a mailbox and I could get it at anytime. We had items in the room we didn't know about (small stove, pots and pans;ect.) I could have been more prepared for my trip had I known about these items. I told me wife (whose 40th we were celebrating) that we would have a balcony and that was not the case. The room was very small for the cost. The pool was dirty. NOT WORTH IT. Will not recommend.

It`s all about the beach!

It`s all about the beach! Lovely place but the murphy bed was not very comfortable. If you book early enough, you may find a suite with a comfortable queen bed. Room is not big but the kitchen is nice. Plenty towels too. Great staff! Will stay again. Beach access is superb!

Located on the beach

Posted Feb 1, 2016
The Beach on Longboat Key is located directly on the beach, the pool is heated and clean and the room was spotless. The area is beautiful and quiet. If you are looking for night life, this is not the location for you. A car is required to access limited local dining or groceries or to venture further to Sarasota or Bradenton. Overall a great, relaxing, beach experience.

Pros: Proximity and location. The sunset over the Gulf was beautiful!
Cons: The outside could use a little paint, but otherwise we found it delightful
Location: Close to Sarasota. We went to the Ringling Museum and the Aquarium. The beach was as clean as a beach can be and we enjoyed walking it
We had a two-bedroom suite that was comfortable and had a great view of the Gulf. Easy to find and close to everything we wanted. Would definitely recommend The Beach to friends and family

Beautiful view from the second floor...

Posted Jan 13, 2016
Pros: Location, right on the beach, it is excellent for a quiet get away.
Cons: Besides the toilet seat being a little worn and the bathroom felt a little old in the first room I stayed in, everything else was great.
Location: If you want to do anything else besides walk on the wonderful beach, a car is probably a must. It's a little hike to actual markets, restaurants etc.
I stayed here 4 nights and was very happy, the first 2 nights I stayed in a small clean room with no view, unless you call the car park and street a view. So I upgraded to a room with a balcony and a view which made my stay so much more enjoyable. The staff where very warm and accommodating.

Studio too small for 4 with horrible sofa bed

Posted Jan 1, 2016 on Hotels
Please be aware that there can not sleep 4 persons in the studio. First if you pull out the murphy bed and the sofa bed there is no more space left to move and second the sofa bed is horrible! I am travelling around for many years and this was definetely the worst bed i have ever had. Furthermore there is nothing around the condo, so you have to drive at least 10 minutes for dinner or you bring your own meals (the studio provides a kitchen)!
