“Not bad...comfy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Stayed a few days, room was clean, water pressure wasn't so great. Basically empty so we had the pool to ourselves! Beautiful grounds, good locations, but definetly what you would expect from a motel. Would stay again.

We made reservations to stay here last Saturday night to visit the beach after a Disney vacation. When we arrived, they told us they were overbooked, and had no rooms available. Thank goodness for that! It was run down, the parking lot was in pieces, and there was very little light outside. My husband talked to the woman at the desk, and said she was pretty clueless, but he was polite because it wasn't her fault that they were overbooked, we had made the reservations by calling the phone number found on a website for the hotel. Because he was nice to her, she offered to bump someone else but we would need to leave the door unlocked until midnight so that someone could come in and fix the broken tv. We declined, thinking it rude to offer someone else's room, and also odd that they would make someone leave their door open for a maintainance person to fix a tv at midnight. It took us about 2 hours to find an available room in the area because it was February, and high vacation season, but the woman at the Super 8 hotel next to the Golden Host (who had herself locked in the lobby, tells the kind of neighborhood), helped us locate another Super 8 nearby that had 2 rooms available.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

I don't know what other people's problem was with this hotel, but we had a great time. A friend and I came to Sarasota to site see not to spend all of our time in the hotel. While we were at the hotel, our room was extremely clean and smelled fresh I didn't even need Febreeze! It was also the very first hotel that I've ever stayed in that didn't have that moldy smell to it. Even the beds were comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The bartenders made THE best drinks. This hotel is located between Ringling and the Jungle Gardens. Everything else was in driving distance within 10 min with traffic. I completely walk the streets of this neighborhood at night without worry. It's FAR from being a ghetto. I even plan to rebook at this hotel in a few month when I return to Sarasota for another visit. Thank you Golden Host Resort for making my Birthday weekend the best!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is pool side.

For the price this was a really great stay. The place is a little older so there was some wear in the room, but it was also clean. Quiet community. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Located so close to the beach, and downtown Sarasota.
