"Good value, even though some hotel amenities weren't available because of Covid. The room was nice and had everything I wanted, including a full-sized fridge and microwave. Definitely worth a stay.2020-05-14"
"Located in a safe area. Walk to the river and enjoy a delicious meal at Mattison's. The hotel was quiet, the room was clean and comfortable, and the employees were helpful.2017-06-07"
"My room had a view of the parking lot. A lamp in my room didn't work, and the bathroom wasn't clean. I was moved to another room; 2 lights didn't work, but they were quickly fixed. Didn't get the correct room service order, though I did get an apology. Not my best hotel stay.2017-03-27"
"The key card didn't work, and the toilet didn't flush well. Don't stay at this hotel.2023-02-27"
"The hotel was clean, though the room was a little dated. The beds were comfortable. Nice staff and good on-site bar and grill.2022-05-22"
"The hotel was dirty, and there were dead roaches all over the bathroom floors. The mattress had brown stains around the edges of the stitching, and the carpet in both rooms and the hallway was stained. The room chairs had food crumbs around the edges of the cushions. One of the beds sagged. Our rooms faced the harbor; the sliding glass door didn't lock in one. We requested a refund after 30 minutes and went to another hotel. Don't stay here.2016-12-18"
"The hotel was brand new, so some kinks were still being worked out. The WiFi wasn't reliable, and the AC was a little loud. I saw a palmetto bug in the kitchen. The staff was helpful and courteous. Give it a try.2019-06-20"
"All went well. The hotel was clean and quiet, and it had a full-service restaurant. Stay here.2020-03-11"
"The front desk clerk needed better training; he told me twice that my credit card was declined. I left to have lunch, and when I returned, he said it had been accepted. I had been traveling all day and just wanted to rest. 2016-03-07"
"Easy to find and access. The motel was older, but it was comfortable and quiet, even though my room faced the busy road. The fridge got really cold, and there was a Keurig coffee maker. The wireless Internet was a little slow. Adequate continental breakfast. For the price and type of lodging, I give this place a 4.5 out of 5.2017-05-23"
"Great motel for the price. Easy access to attractions; about 15 minutes from Siesta Key, 20 minutes from St. Armands Circle and Ledo Beach, and 15 minutes from the Tiverhouse Bar and Grill. The room was clean. Excellent staff.2017-05-01"
"A good, affordable, no-frills motel. The room was nice and clean.2016-11-29"
"Convenient to Lido Beach, St. Armand's Circle, and the wharf. The hotel smelled clean, and the front desk service was good. The elevator was out of service, though, and our room was on the 3rd floor.2022-03-02"

"The hotel was well-maintained. Be aware that a deposit will be required.2020-05-29"
"The hotel clerks were attentive, but the room smelled like mildew. During the hurricane, water seeped through the floor boards, and the shower didn't have a grab bar or soap dish. No generator, which is important for people traveling with oxygen.2022-10-03"
"Not a good experience. Don't stay at this motel.2022-06-29"
"The motel was dirty. Don't stay here.2020-12-23"
"When we arrived, my wife went to a trash can in the lobby to throw out 2 cups. The motel clerk rudely told her she had to go outside to throw them away in a garbage can across the driveway by the pool. I told him this was rude, and he said it was "motel rules". If we didn't already have a reservation, we wouldn't have stayed.2015-09-24"
"Close to everything; right by I-75 and minutes from the beach. The hotel was exceptionally clean and had a wonderful staff. The only downside was that the beds were doubles instead of queens. Lots of healthy and hot selections at breakfast. Great place to stay.2016-01-01"
"The hotel was perfectly fine. We loved the location and the pool. The room was comfortable, though the shower didn't drain well. Great coffee and hot chocolate. The continental breakfast was OK.2023-03-06"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
