"pool, tiki bar and restaurant make this place work"

We loved the pool, tiki bar, restaurant and proximity to St.Armonds Circle and the beach. It was a bit of a walk 1.2 miles into St. Armonds, but since we like to walk we took the trek daily into St.Armonds. We ate several meals at the Hotel. The food was good, portions adequate and reasonable prices for this area. Beach right off of the pool area was a big plus.

It's a grand older property that has been brought up to date with beautiful decorations,carpets, curtain treatments, furniture, wall colors, and pictures. The staff were wonderful and ready to answer any questions that were asked. The location is right across the street from the beach. Beach chairs are provided on a first come, first serve basis.Food was good and the top floor dining room gave a gorgeous view of the water and beach.The bathroom we had was a bit outdated but clean.It would not take too much effort to bring them up to date. The laundry room was a little hard to find and stuck in a small room but the washers and driers were newer and quite serviceable. One can walk to St. Armands Circle with all the restaurants and stores.Or drive across the bridge into Sarasota and all that it has to offer.. We will return again.
"Walking distance to the circle!!"

We visited to celebrate a birthday and Valentines Day. Wonderful location and our king room with balcony faced the Gulf and was clean and seemed to be pretty much up to date. Staff seemed nice. Would stay at this location again.
