Gulfside Motel, Sarasota
Good3.0 / 5
On Lido Key but Not Lido Key Prices
We wanted a quick getaway to Lido and this fit the bill. It had a kitchen but no room service. Room service was 30 extra a day. The staff was very accomodating as we arrived late. It is an old property and shows it but it is about 400 feet from the beach and is a great alternative to spending 200 a night at the Lido beach resort. I would stay again.

Filthy and broken.
The room was filthy. Roaches, bees, mold. The toilets would clock when the shower was running. One bed was broken and the mattress felt to the floor. Some electrical outlets din't work.

Convenience vs Cleanliness
Convenient location to Lido Key beach, St Armands Circle & Mote Aquarium. Family was disappointed with cleanliness and comfort. Wall AC units were not sufficient for two bedroom unit. Experienced bugs in shower, on furniture and in kitchen area. Bed sheets were dusty.
