    Clean rooms, perfect location close to airport, friendly staff and very well maintained pool. Tiki Bar and TV cable is a big plus. Good choice for business in Sarasota/Bradenton area, downtown is 10 minutes away.

    Hi Lori, We do have a tiki bar by the pool and beaches are 15-20 minutes. Unfortunately, we no longer allow pets in our rooms. That being said they are welcome at the tiki bar. Sincerely, Jim Gill
