Consistently a great stay! Love the shelling and waves at the beach, access to restaurants, clean rooms with kitchenette. I felt so safe traveling with my children. It gets better each year, now with breakfast and barbecues! We were able to check in early and go for lunch down the street. Great views of the beach from our room. The...

We really enjoyed this hotel. Everything seemed new or renovated in the very cute room. The towels were white and very plush. Nice toiletries. The staff was super. We were given beach towels and beautiful Bradenton Beach was right across the street; nice lounge chairs were provided, sitting out there waiting for us. The grab and go breakfast was just...

Our room was very cozy and homey. It was a wonderful place, and the staff was incredible!!! The hotel is right across the street from the beach, with loungers readily available for use, and sometimes, there was someone from the hotel to put up an umbrella for you on the beach. Just a wonderful, beautiful, peaceful refuge!!! Krista, Jackie, Julie,...

This is a great place to stay. Clean rooms with microwave, small fridge, and a small kitchen area with silverware and so forth. Most rooms do not have a lanai, but you can sit out on the walkway and still see the ocean. Location is great. Across the street from the beach and they have free lounge chairs and umbrellas....

We were only here for one night so we wanted to make the most of it. They accommodated an early-check-in so we could get changed for the beach (which is right across from the hotel). Rooms were not super fancy but were spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Location is fantastic! Walking distance to several restaurants/shops. Staff was super...
