Overall a friendly staff that was accommodating. Vary bland, dark and uninviting décor..... lines this property, however. Seasonal rates are out of this world in Sarasota! Wow is it inflated even at the dinghy Days Inn across the street. Solid breakfast variety and fairly close to Siesta Key which was nice! Allow plenty of time when trying to get around... More

Stayed here on Friday night on our way back from Everglades to Orlando. Such a welcoming hotel, the two receptionists (one male, one female) extremely pleasant and helpful - they even had freshly baked cookies in the evening.

Is it possible to rest comfortably? Is there good water pressure? Does the internet work easily? With this current hotel, booked by... More
