One day our room was not cleaned and the hallway floors off the elevator on floor 3 were disgusting! I did not realize how many pets were allowed to stay. One night we were interrupted by barking dogs and a meowing cat. The floors and rugs need to be cleaned throughout the hotel. The location was excellent to downtown

Very convenient location. Bed was very hard on my back. It pulled me down. I weigh 180 pounds.

Additional space/suite was not worth paying for

Pros: The location was easy access to where I needed to be in Sarasota. I had a pretty view of water from my window. WAS better than 2 other hotels in area.
Cons: Re-connect the central air that was available in the room-based on visual of old thermostat so all of room and bathroom could have air conditioning.
Location: A large-chain grocery store is nearby as is a beach with parking.
Purchased a suite/upgrade to do some work and not have to do it in the BED. The adjacent room w/ sofa and desk did not have air conditioning except what came through the door opening from the bedroom. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. I had no creamer, sugar, stirs for the coffee in the room.The sign-in staff acted like I was bothering them to check in. My check OUT person was very friendly with a smile. Free continental breakfast takes some patience as the area is small with many people.

Very nice hotel and very pet friendly

Pros: Pet friendly. very nice, clean, comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. A block from a nice park. easy to find and pleasant location
Location: It is a block from a park that was nice for walking our dogs and fishing.
We needed a room for 2 nights before we could check into our room on lido beach for the week. I would have stayed here the whole time as nice as it was. But we wanted on the beach. We had two large dogs with us and the place was very pet friendly. But you couldn't tell from the looks of it. It was very clean and luxurious for a pet friendly hotel. They had grass areas around their lot with post that had doggie bags and trash cans available. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and had nice appliances in them. The bathrooms were very clean. everything worked properly and felt new. Their breakfast was very nice. Waffles, bagels, fruit, eggs, ect. The building had a lot of nice amenities but we did not use any of them even though they looked very nice and clean. I did find two small items of trash in our room the last day while picking up our dogs toys. One under the bed skirt and one under the loveseat. Nothing bad just missed by cleaning. There is a nice park a block down the road as well that we walked our dogs in every morning. Very nice hotel and I would definitely stay there again. We stayed in one on our way to Sarasota and stayed in one on our way back home at the end of the week. All were very nice and clean with great breakfast.
