This hotel had an amazing location for being a chain restaurant near Siesta Key (and also close to downtown Sarasota). I was able to get an amazing rate (~$80/night) and wouldn't have been happy if I had paid more for it.

Katherine at the front desk graciously helped my husband and myself get into a room quickly so we could shower and attend a family gathering even though it was a little before official check-in time. We were very grateful.

Spent the weekend here for a wedding and I was pleasantly surprised. I got a suite just in case someone needed to crash on my couch since we were across the street from the reception and we had so much room! If you need a little extra room for friends or to sprawl or its perfect and really not that...

The service and the room was great. It was very clean, the hotel keep a good service replacing the towels. The hotel is in a good location, the beach was a mile away from the hotel and a variety of restaurants.
