Hotel is being/has been renovated, which is nice. But the workmanship and follow up is lacking. My towel bar was falling off and housekeeping just put a new towel on it. Tape from the Reno’ was still on the tile corner pieces, adhesive residue was still on the top of the sink backsplash and is catching dirt so it will be impossible to clean properly, doorknob looks old but is likely just has paint splashes from the renovation

This is a tired property in need of an update. Gloomy hallways, drab carpeting. We had a so-called suite. The bedroom was fine with a very comfortable bed, but the sitting room was dark and the inappropriately oversized furniture made it small and less functional for use as a gathering place.

Small Things Added Up

A somewhat musty smell when first entering the room. Not terrible but just did not seem fresh. No bedspreads on beds. Beds average. Room was okay, nothing special. Breakfast was very disappointing. The pancakes were made by pressing a button with a timer. I honestly thought that the one that I had was made of rubber. After the first bite I was done. Saw that the pancakes were pre-made and put in the machine, not like other motels where batter is used.Scrambled eggs were like flat round slabs. Had to use provided hot water to add to make oatmeal, rather than put in microwave. We found local restaurants to eat breakfast for the remainder of the stay. Room cleaning...got back in our room about 5:00 pm. the first day of our stay. Had to call the front desk to ask for room maintenance! The third day of our stay it was 1:30 p.m. or so until we had our room cleaned. Online photos of hotel were deceptive. Quiet, not noisy. The pool was smaller than pictured but I liked that it was heated.. Good location, not crowded as far as traffic. Located close to interstate and shopping areas.

The hotel was ok. The location was convenient.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Excellent location near to Siesta beach and I-75 expressway. Rooms were real spacious.Quiet area. The hotel provided a good breakfast (danish, boiled eggs, cereal, make your own waffles and more) included in the room rate. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to ourfriends.
