Romantic get awayPosted Oct 30, 2017
Before staying here I was hesitant because of some of the negative reviews, but that all changed once I arrived. I was greeted by one of the staff members who was super friendly and informative . He told us all about the resort and siesta key. Once we got our keys we headed to our room which was beautiful and cozy. The hotel itself was clean and well kept despite what others say. Its right on the bay, where we saw lots of manatees. They have complemtary canoes and kayaks and a small heated pool. The only negative thing is that the rooms are very close to each other so privacy is a little hard. But we did not mind, everyone was quiet. Overall I would rate this hotel 5 stars and would definitely come back again!! I have a blast here !

Hidden couples paradise!.,Posted Oct 16, 2017 on Hotels
It's an amazing little place hidden on Siesta key, Great for couples who just want some alone time to reconnect, the cottage we stayed in was very nice, looked newly renovated. Very cozy, husband and I didn't want to leave.. you have a private patio with a hot tub, worth every penny

Quiet getawayPosted Sep 23, 2017
Private cottage on lagoon. Spent hours in our own private hot tub in our private courtyard. Walked to nearby restaurants for lunch. Took a short drive to the nicest beach in the U.S. Had fine evening dining at nearby restaurants. Spent evenings by the water looking at romantic sunsets.

It was beautiful! Only one problem....our room overlooking the gazebo and pool. It was a corner room with lots of windows. The lights were on all night and lit up the room. We could not darken the room and didn't sleep.

The Inn was a great!Posted Aug 2, 2017
Pros: Location and privacy. It's like we had the entire place to ourselves.
Cons: Amenities were misleading. Kayaks had not been cleaned in awhile, seat straps were broken, and paddles were bent. Bicycles were in similar condition.
My wife and I had the best vacation of our lives here. Although the inn is not beach front we had no issue walking to the public beach from our room. The other extremely nice thing about the location of this Inn is it is right next door to the public FREE transit that will take you up to Siesta Key and back. This made our stay even better because we did not have to worry about parking our car at the packed lots at Siesta Key beach. The Inn is extremely private during our stay we saw one other couple. We would stay at the Inn again. The only criticism I could give this place is the amenities were misleading from the website. The kayaks look like they had never been pulled out of the water to be cleaned, the tandem kayak was hard to use as the seat straps were broken, and the paddles were bent. We also had to sweep the pool ourselves to get the debris out of it every time we wanted to use it. Someone doesn't check this place everyday as we noticed throughout the week the trash at the grill would get pulled out by birds and not get picked up for a few days. However, none of this would hinder us from coming back.

Third-world resort at Manhattan pricesPosted Jul 19, 2017 on Hotels
I have no doubt that in its prime, this was an amazing place to stay. Unfortunately, it's long past that. While the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, there was free wifi and the person in the office was friendly, that's where the compliments stop. If we'd been paying $80 a night I'd have been delighted with it, but for over $300 a night I'd expect housekeeping, some larger towels and some conditioner, but there was none of that. The room was kitschy in decor, the air-conditioning unit old and noisy and there were no screens on the windows or doors to keep the bugs out. While the room itself was clean, the external areas (private patio, hot tub and the exterior of the bathroom window) were filthy and in disrepair. We didn't dare use the hot-tub not knowing when the water had last been changed, and the netting above it was full of dead bugs. The pool and public areas were tiny and the water off the dock (yes, the one shown in the picture) was muddy, stinky and full of debris. The locals in the area were anti-tourist and the staff at the Turtles Restaurant up the road were unbelievably rude (note that the Turtle Beach Grill next door was much better). The resort itself is right on the main road, although the walk to the beach is only a few minutes (note this is Turtle beach, not Siesta beach which the island is known for). All in all, this is NOT good value for money - you'd do much better with a VRBO or AirBnB which would be more modern and in a better state of repair.
