Positive Reviews

Perfect for Beach Bums.

If you love the Gulf Coast, you’ll love the beach club on the property. You can swim in the hotel pool or take a dip in Sarasota Bay. There are beachfront amenities too; including a café that serves food and drinks.

Exceptionally Clean.

While it does come at a cost to stay here, many guest remarked on the superior level of cleanliness around the hotel.

Great Location for Downtown.

If you need to get to the downtown area quick, but you still want to enjoy Sarasota Bay, this hotel fits the bill. It’s only minutes away from downtown and only 5 miles from the Sarasota airport.

Negative Reviews

How Much Will THAT Be?.

Some guests commented that they felt everything required additional fees (parking, Wi-Fi, beach club, etc.). Given the room rate, more than a few travellers mentioned some of these additions seemed pricy. They felt that these items would be ‘standard/free

Watch for Spring Breakers.

While usually a great family location, some guests said that the resort get a little rowdy during Spring Break, which makes it less than family-friendly. So it’s best to be mindful of when you book your trip.

Minor Complaints to an Otherwise Great Time.

Some people mentioned items like the lack of staff to open doors for guests or noisy pet guests. Overall though, the grievances by visitors were really sparse.
