This hotel is a great place to spend the night for a quick trip. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The front desk staff was helpful, knowledgable and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

From reservations to check-in, the room quality and check out, this is a great place to stay. We were suprised by the overly large rooms, the comfortable beds, and the great big pillows. Staff at the front desk could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Excellent value for price and location. Highly recommended!

Great location, awesome staff. Sheldon was very friendly upon check in and Tim was very knowledgeable on local dining options. Rooms were clean and very quite. Quick and easy drive to Siesta Key Beach, there are several stores within a mile of any last minute or forgotten travel items.

We have stayed here a few times, and never been disappointed. As before, we had a suite, this time on the 4th floor, which was better than the one we previously had, which was on the ground floor. The suites are next to the elevators, and the noise is greater in the ground floor suite for some reason. Suites are...
