Positive Reviews

Walking distance from everything you need.

The hotel is situated in downtown Sarasota, guests found the location to be quite convenient for exploring the town. You can walk to the beach and the marina, there are many great restaurants and bars nearby. Guests also enjoyed the artistic architecture and history of the area.

Great kitchen for a self-catering guest.

Guests were impressed with the kitchens in the private apartments. You can prepare your own meals with ease as the kitchens are fully-equipped with everything you could need; they are also very clean.

Art Deco Hotel.

The hotel building dates back to the early 1900's and many guests enjoyed the Art Deco feel of the property. Guests found the apartments to be spacious and they enjoyed the mixture of old and new furnishings.

Negative Reviews

Noisy air-conditioning units.

Reviewers have indicated that the air-conditioning units in the guest rooms are noisy and that they found it difficult to sleep with the noise. Reviewers feel that these old air-conditioning units should be replaced.

Very little customer services available.

Guests reported that they found the hotel management staff to be unreliable and inflexible with regard to meeting guests needs. The reception desk is not open at night and it is only open at certain hours of the day which made it difficult for guests to contact the staff.

Poorly furnished and outdated building.

Although most guests enjoyed the quirky Art Deco building, some guests felt that the property could use some renovation and refurbishment. Some of the apartments are a little musty and the furniture is of a low quality.
