We reserved a 3 bdrm on Expedia. When we got there to check in Ringling Beach House gave us a 2 bdrm. When I showed the hotel manager Roberto the reservation that I booked on Expedia which clearly said a 3 bdrm he said Expedia made the mistake of booking inventory that the hotel did not have. We both contacted Expedia and they said it was the hotels fault because they only show property on what is in inventory. I don't what happened and who is to blame but it was a huge inconvenience. On top of that we were told the sofa in the living room was a pull out sofa. And it was not. We were all there arriving from Washington DC and New York City and had been looking forward to this vacation. I even contacted the hotel in March to make sure that we had the 3 bdrm suite. And the person I spoke to confirmed it. Apparently I spoke to the reservation office which was located in italy. Anyways the hotel manager contacted the owner and the owner said that Expedia owed us a refund or is responsible for moving us to another hotel. At that point we had already arrived tired from traveling and just wanted to settle in. And there was no availability on the island at that point. Because it was Mother's Day weekend. Roberto the hotel manager did help by giving us xtr amenities even a complimentary late check out. He tried to get us more credit from the owner but couldn't. Because the owner insisted it was Expedia's fault. Either way I expect some type of credit for not getting the 3bdrm.

The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful and accessible. The property is within minutes of downtown Siesta Key and is right across the street from a beach access. The apartment was clean, fully furnished and very quiet. We could not hear our neighbors at all.

We loved Siesta Key and will definitely be back but will not stay at this resort again. Very poor management, most everything in desperate need of repair or replacement. We have stayed in camping cabins that are nicer than the apartment we stayed in and it was very expensive......Very disappointing.
