"The hotel was dated, and the exterior and grounds needed cleaning. Good TV. The bed and fridge were clean. The bathtub was grimy. The toilet ran all night, and the handle was loose. No restaurants or bars nearby. If aesthetics bother you, don't stay here.2022-02-26"

"The hotel room was old, shabby, and filthy; there was pet hair everywhere. I found 2 cockroaches as well. Find another place to stay.2020-01-24"

"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"
"Older motel, but the price was right. The room was comfortable, but needed updating. Helpful, friendly desk clerks.2015-04-01"
"Motel only has 2 smoking rooms, and I didn't get one. Also didn't get requested 1st floor room. Room wasn't that clean. Found out after my shower that no towels had been provided; I had to use the bedsheets to dry off. Don't recommend.2015-02-09"
"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"
"The hotel was nice, but there was no daily housekeeping. We got clean towels, but the bed wasn't made and the garbage cans weren't emptied.2021-08-02"
"We were surprised by the fee for incidentals. The hotel staff was courteous, and breakfast was outstanding. Book it.2019-08-03"
"I had no complaints. The hotel was fine, and service was good. I didn't like the bed, but I think that's normal when you're not sleeping in your own bed at home. There's no reason for anyone to be disappointed here.2017-10-01"
"Close to Siesta Key. The hotel was nice and clean, with a great pool area. Food was easily accessible.2017-03-11"
"The hotel room was clean. The AC didn't work properly at night, and there were no maintenance workers on-site at that time. The fridge didn't get very cold. Check-in was fine, and the staff was pleasant. The ice machine on our floor didn't work. The elevator was like a hot box. Nice breakfast with a variety of food. Not enough parking, and the double speed bumps were killers if you have a bad back.2016-07-14"
"A bad hotel stay. At 2 AM, someone began banging on our door, then hiding so we couldn't see them through the peephole or window. We called the front desk and were told someone would check it out.2016-07-19"
"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"

"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"

"The motel clerks were helpful and nice.2016-06-03"
"No TV channel guide in the hotel room or at the front desk. Check-in was easy, and everything was in order. No mention, though, of an extra $5 county fee. I was impressed with the full, cooked-to-order breakfast.2023-01-04"
"An excellent hotel. It was almost new. The room was spacious and really comfortable, and the staff was courteous and helpful. Breakfast was especially good. Stay here.2021-02-21"
HotelGuides made it easy to choose a hotel based on how far we wanted to get that day. Also liked being able to see the interstate interchange on the map to determine how far off the highway each hotel was.

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.
