We spent the night at another hotel in the area that was absolutely disgusting and called the booking company to transfer us to another place asap! As soon as we arrived here we were relieved and so much happier! It took a minute to find it since it's tucked behind the Cracker Barrel restaurant but the location is very convenient...

Great value for your money! Low fare but you get a very decent breakfast and a hotel that is just as good as any other way more expensive ones. A short ride to Anna Maria island makes this a hotel I would love to come back to.

Manager Chris Sears has put his heart and expertise into every inch of this place. Not only has he designed every inch for efficiency and hospitality, he has also added...

This hotel is reasonably priced, clean, comfortable bed and a good shower located just 15 minutes from Lecom Park and Pirates spring training games. Located just off Interstate 75, it is only 30 minutes to Sarasota or St. Petersburg areas.

March 2017, I was looking for a QUIET hotel as I had planned on having cancer treatments in Sarasota and wanted a good, comfortable place to recover. Found it at the BW Plus Manatee Bradenton. This hotel is off the main road by being located in back of the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. This is a great restaurant too that offers...

We stayed for a night, and was pleased with the hotel. A lot of places to eat in the neighborhood, and the hotel is located quite close to the beaches at Longboat Key and Anna Maria. Hot breakfast, quite basic, but ok. Good size room, a bit dated, but clean.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. Every time I have been met with exceptional customer service, clean rooms and a very convenient location. I will continue to stay here any time I am in need of lodging.
