I enjoyed my stay in this hotel Location is right next to the airport and collegeRooms were roomy, nice and clean

The bed was actually super comfortable We enjoyed the pool as well, although they could do with some shade out there 😅 Slept in an missed breakfast so I can’t comment on that, although I do find free Breakfast to be a huge perk

This is absolutely the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in I always wipe down everything with Lysol wipes at all hotels When I wiped down here, I did not get one speck of dirt on the wipes! Zero! I tried to find something, but found nothing! Spotless!The breakfast was adorned with multiple options

The staff was pleasant The location is great!

Santrina Glover

I visited on July 29,2022 I read all the reviews and that plus word of mouth led me to this hotel, It was everything and then sum The rooms were spacious the breakfast was AWESOME, and the property is very well maintained, yes the bed and pillows are soft but that made for a better nights rest

The location was only 15 to 20 mins away from EVERYTHING we wanted to explore Don’t second guess your choice about this location, I promise you will not be disappointed, and even if something is not to your liken, they have a really great staff that would love to make your STAY the best EVER😋👍🏾

Jen Wheeler

Definitely 5 stars! The staff was so nice and helpful (Special shout out to Kathy at reception- she was terrific)! Even having the smallest room at the hotel, it felt plenty spacious, with a large bathroom and walk in shower, comfortable beds, and plenty of space to store luggage and items Superb location near shops, restaurants and activities, and near the free trolley stops I can’t wait to go back!

Emily Hayes

We really enjoyed our time staying at BridgeWalk We got to listen to the live music next door at Island Time while sitting on our patio, but when we went inside and closed the sliding glass doors you couldn’t hear it They decorated our bed for our 5 year anniversary that we were there to celebrate

Parking attendant was super friendly when we checked in Everyone was nice! This hotel is in a great location too being on Bridge St and right across from the beach Your view isn’t oceanfront, but we had fun watching people walk up and down the main street from our patio The rooms are very basic but have everything you need Because it’s not a luxury hotel the prices are really affordable We are so glad we found this place and would stay there again 🙂 We appreciate everyone’s kindness and ability to make it a special time!

From the moment you walk in you’re greeted by the two most wonderful young ladies with smiles that make you feel instantly welcomed!!! Our room was clean, very modern and overall very nice The pool was amazing and refreshing, the tiki bar was a blast with the most absolute best bar tender Denise, once she takes your first drink order she remembers your name and makes sure you are always taken care of, making everyone feel as if they come first Top notch service here from the office all the way through!!! This is by far one of the best hotels we’ve stayed at and I will definitely be going back as well as highly recommending!!!! Thanks so much for welcoming our family and making us all feel right at home!!!!!

Demat

My room was recently remodeled, sparkling cleanedThe hotel is very well maintained, security cameras everywhere and the laundry and pool accessible only for guestsExcellent customer service

This hotel worth every dollar spent

Joe Klapperich

This place was absolutely AMAZING Older? sure

undergoing renovations? Absolutely The room was spacious, updated, pristine and wonderful Check in was effortless Tiki bar was VERY nice, bar tender was friendly and prices were more than reasonableONLY ISSUE – this is a VERY INEXPENSIVE place where you are getting MORE than double your money as an experience HOWEVER – this ALSO means that the “Riff Raff” chooses tom stay there Persons can be friendly, or rude We found 80% friendly, the other 20% wanted to ENSURE that everyone know they were there, they were visible, and that they didn’t care what ANYONE else thoughtManagement did the best they could, but in the end – not a whole lot they could doWould we stay again? 100% yes! Will be our “go to” next time

The Right Honorable Daniel Berulis

Staff is amazing The night crew in particular They went well out of their way to help accommodate an error in booking and made sure I felt valued and important as Marriott customer

Whoever runs this location must truly pick out the best of the best for employees and the whole place was immaculately clean Even the cleaning staff were overly polite and courteous , they held the elevator for me and then insisted that I take it and they would wait, as well as opening doors for me everywhere I went This was an amazing experience and should be a five-star hotel

Alize Shrue

My stay at the courtyard was a work trip The staff was mostly friendly except the restaurant/bartender she seemed annoyed with her job The room was clean, basic amenities and basic television , maybe 20 channels

Also there were spiders and ants present and I did get bit a couple times ! The housekeepers were nice It’s in a good location to get to the beach abs other things

Jose Meraz

My Stay was excellent I was visiting Sarasota for a vacation and I have to say that it was a beautiful hotel, pool was great, and let me tell you the jacuzzi was great as well I read some comments on here about not having enough towels but that is not true they do have enough towels and staff was really friendly too

I am from California so the temperature of the room was great I also would love to stay again at this hotel in the future because I really loved Sarasota

My wife and I visited this past weekend for our anniversary From the onset it was a wonderful stay The hotel has been renovated from the 20’s, but still maintains some of its original feel

The gentleman at the front desk was phenomenal! Luke is who you’re looking for when you stay He is genuinely happy to be there, is a wealth of information on local places to eat, shop, etc, and makes you feel like you’re the only guest he has! I will definitely be staying there many more times

Cyriloh Garcia (Cyriloh56)

Overall this was a wonderful stay My wife and I stayed 2 nights went to the beach close by Great location

Service was wonderful front desk, at breakfast we met Gary he is a wonderful man that bakes these wonderful scones something you don’t see anywhere these days Other than the ice machine on 5 th floor out of service everything was good bed plenty pillows clean bathrooms Would stay again

Kelly Friedel

We currently live in Georgia but from Bradenton My mother recently passed and we needed a few rooms for family to stay in so we could have a celebration of life I have to say that they did not disappoint! The rooms were big, clean and welcoming

The staff was WONDERFUL!! Let me say if this company reads their reviews you have found a Gem in Luke!!!!!!! I don’t think I ever seen this sweet young man without a smile in his face and with such a welcoming personality Even while phones were ringing off the hook he maintained a great attitude both with the callers and the guest infront of him We needed to extend one of our rooms for an additional night due to car issues, Terra worked it out for us and was wonderful as well Before leaving we made reservations again in April Thank you all for making a stay comfortable!!

This place is a gem! The decoration is gorgeous, it feels renovated, refreshing and current Every person of the staff is generous and kind, they clearly enjoy their job The gym is stellar, and the pool and the jacuzzi excellent! Breakfast is delicious and with a variety of options

I 100% recommend this hotel and would definitely coming back

kira simring

This is fun hotel with a wonderful staff It has a youth hostel vibe but it’s great for families The beds are very comfortable and the decor is wonderfully playful

The one problem with the room is that space efficiency comes at the cost of privacy There’s a sliding door between the toilet and the shower so you can only close one at the time! The lobby has excellent snacks and a coffee bar

Sherry’s morning breakfast was phenomenal! Cooked for us as we sat Natalie was exceptional as well She has a great smile and her excellent customer service was so appreciated

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again! Nice family atmosphere Very relaxing for us Thank you Sherry It was so very nice to meet you and have some great conversations!!

Jamie Hubbard

This is a beautiful secluded spot perfect for a romantic getaway or some time to unplug and unwind The setting is unique and the grounds offer many adorable places to spend time together or swing and read a book Breakfast is amazing and you 100% need to RSVP and take advantage of that! It does not have some of the conveniences that many are used to (individual temp control of the room, hair dryer, hooks and hangers

but it’s a perfect place to enjoy if you don’t need those things It was perfect for our honeymoon stay 😀

Xion Pentagast

My girlfriend and I came here for a romantic getaway, and we could not have been happier! The staff was helpful and friendly making sure we were able to relax and enjoy our getaway from our busy lives The food was delicious and really healthy I’ve stayed at a lot of fancy hotels and you always end up feeling like just another person but here we left feeling like family

This place was absolutely amazing! Best bed we’ve ever had on a vacation! Pool was great Gazebo’s with curtains by the pool were great! The awesome bar, the music can’t be heard from your room We were just getting to the pool and the front desk lady brought us both fresh towels

She was awesome too the whole week we were there! I would definitely recommend this place Only downfall we had was the AC in our room didnt get cold enough but we bought a fan and that fixed that one and only issue! Loved it here Thank you for making out vacation so amazing!

Vincent Delgado

When checking into a hotel, I am very picky I work at a Marriott property After reading the reviews at this property and seeing the photos online I decided to give it a shot, and we couldn’t be happier!! This property gave such a cute boutique hotel vibe

Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, good quality linens, etc Pool area was clean, hotel provided towels, tiki hut had good drinks and upon checking we received 2 complimentary Staff and management was friendly, helpful, professional, and extremely responsive to any requests Definitely recommend staying at the golden host if you are looking for something affordable, clean, comfortable and central to everything 5/5 stars

KAM

Edit to add: David Alexander the GM may want to stop making slanderous remarks This is my account – I posted my honest review!!! You and your employees have HORRIBLE customer service!! Once again

video will show there was no disruption at your hotel but will show your crazy behavior!! Stop being a bully!!! The owners of this property should be ashamed to have you as the GM!! You are showing your true colors by your slanderous responses to my review!! This is my account!! No one has made any false accounts Your accusations of such are disgusting!!Nothing about my review is false You have horrible customer service I don’t need to complete a stay at your hotel for me to write a review on my personal experience I was not disruptive and there is video proof of that You threatened to have me removed but I calmly left your hotel with no issues Your staff is poorly trained in customer service The GM David Alexander was very unprofessional in his dealings with me I have every right to post my honest opinion on my experience with the staff at this hotel If you don’t like what I have to write then you should have treated me with more respect!! If other people have posted bad reviews that has nothing to do with me This is my review and I stand by it!!

Joel Appel

I can no longer, in good conscience, continue to recommend this hotel Their customer relations are non-existent and the General Manager makes false accusations I would tell you that there are several nearby hotels with comparable or perhaps even lower rates

I myself suggest trying the Hilton Garden Inn by the Sarasota Airport They have excellent customer support and will go out of their way to accommodate you Additionally, this Hilton gets 5 stars for cleanliness

Love this resort! Third time staying here and the accommodations are immaculate and first rate It was a welcoming and comfortable stay for my Wife and I You can not beat the beachfront location which is conveniently located in the middle of the island which made restaurants and entertainment easily accessible

Over the years, the Staff has remained the same which makes each stay pleasant as they always remember us They were incredibly kind, professional and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was everything we wanted I would absolutely recommend here for any Business person, Family or Couple!

Anali Dishmey

This is my first time staying at Casa del Mar Beach Resort and my experience has been excellent The beach is only steps away and it looks like a Florida postcard, the condo was very clean, comfortable and had everything you need Parking was not an issue at all as there are many available spaces

The pool water was very cloudy, and the smell of chlorine was too strong We tried twice but decided to stay at the beach instead since they had umbrellas and chairs available Will definitely be back!

my mother and I stayed for 3 days and were very pleased with our accommodations The room was very clean and nicely decorated (even had DOVE toiletries available) the staff is friendly, and the continental breakfast was amazing!! Buffet style hot food was available such as eggs, bacon, sausage and even pancakes The only thing that I could complain about was the water pressure in the shower but hey, it really wasn’t that bad We will definitely stay here again!

We were there to help my Mother-In-law close the deal for a new house in the area We always stay at Hampton Inn’s for we always have had fantastic experiences This was no exception

The staff was absolutely excellent! They even let us print some contract material, which went well beyond what is required The pool and breakfast were equally excellent The one issue is the mattress for the pull out mattress was slightly soiled, but in no way takes away from the overall experience Very well done!

Really nice hotel Being next to the airport I thought I would hear planes taking off frequently However, in my 2 nights I stayed there I only heard 1 plane take off near the hotel and it was in the morning

They had a dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge and dishes They also had a grill by the pool Great option for families It was fairly new and very clean I would recommend this hotel for anyone

Debbie Jones

I love hotels with grills! This one didn’t disappoint If you have a vehicle this is a great place! Without a vehicle it’s a little remote but there is a restaurant and bar in the sister property behind The room was very clean and comfortable

The bed was comfortable as well The grill and grill set were well kept and helped me make some delicious “home” cooked meals The staff was super ni e and helpful as well I would definitely stay here again!

Hands down the most beautiful wedding venue we’ve ever seen – my wife and I both looked at each other just from seeing the outside when we drove up and go YUP THIS IS IT! The inside and back area blew us away too Everyone at our wedding kept coming up to us saying how gorgeous the venue and property was It’s on the water, it’s well kept, it’s charming and so much more

Not to mention Mieke and Wim might be the nicest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting We were out of town and they made the whole process so smooth and easy Each interaction we were greeted with such kindness and eagerness to help – we were never made to feel like a burden even when we had a million questions I can only hope that people see this feedback and book this venue so they can have the memories we do! Thank you tenfold – pictures and words will never do it justice!

Joanne Andros

Our daughter, Kristi and now husband Trent found this beautiful wedding venue with a water view shortly after they were engaged in 2021 They were fortunate to be able to book it for April 3,2022 Wim and Mieke are the owners and they are very accommodating and professional

They make you feel like family with their attention to detail and just the sincere care that is given to make sure the wedding ceremony and reception are magical! It was more than magical! The weather was perfect that day, even though we rented a tent just in case You never know how quickly it can change in Florida The tent made it even cozier and the outside lights were strung also We are still ecstatic reminiscing about that day Words can not thank you enough Wim and Mieke Joanne and Tom Andros

I’m not one to leave reviews but when a location is so nice and the staff so welcoming I always make sure to do so The location is darling, the atmosphere so peaceful and the views are breathtakingOne thing I do want to say is that the staff are great and honest people, I mistakenly left my charger (with my Apple Watch attached) in the room after I checked out and the staff was so kind to call me and let me know

Which gave me time to return and retrieve them Truly I am thankful for such true and honest staff!Thanks for making my stay peaceful

This is my 4th stay here at this hotel I’ve stayed 4 days/3 nights each week Kira has been beyond phenomenal with her customer service skills! Every question I’ve had she has found an answer

Each room has has been cleaned to expectation and each bed has been comfortable to sleep on Very inviting hotel with an easy check-in process I travel for work so these are a couple of things that are very important to me

Awesome location, and the room was clean and modern However

the pool was grossly inadequate in size based on the size of the hotel, with five (yes, FIVE) total lounge chairs that guests were literally fighting over The pool water was really dirty, gross No hot water in the shower, the room lock was not functioning properly and we had to lock and unlock the interior about five times before it would work No towels in the gym, no towels at the pool, and the second floor elevator would not go down (you had to push the up button, then get in the elevator, then push down) The breakfast hot food was cold, and the room AC was really noisy I regularly stay at Marriott for branding, but this visit overall was really disappointing

We just returned from a 3 day vacation at Zota Beach resort! We had a great time and this hotel was top notch Very convenient with valet parking, staff was very friendly each time we left or arrived back with our vehicle The room was spacious and very modern, comfortable bed, & spacious patio

Beach access was convenient and we enjoyed having complimentary beach chairs with our room, very nice pool & hot tub area The on sight restaurant was pricey but food was very worth it, our waitress was very friendly Bar has some delicious house drinks, also a friendly bartender that is very attentive We had a great experience and will definitely be returning for future vacations The room was on the pricey side but overall very worth it for the experience and location!

Loved staying here at this hotel for my birthday weekend/Memorial Day weekend We booked a premium ocean view room at the newer Opal building (built in 2017) The ocean view room has a view to the pool and the beach

If you want a full-blown oceanfront, you need to get a Ocean front room Next door was construction but I didn’t hear any noises The service was wonderful Dan the Concierge was amazing He was so helpful He even helped my husband plan a birthday surprise for me and he had a scented candle from the hotel as a gift for me The service was great at breakfast and dinner The pool was very nice with games for kids There is a direct access to the beach 2 beach chair are included in your hotel stay and you can rent an umbrella for $20

Brenda Fikry

Overall great hotel, amazing pool on a fabulous quite beach Welcoming staff Dislike how you pay premium prices for your room and on top of it a resort fee that does not even include a beach umbrella

The pool can get very busy on weekends with LOTS of high energy children A family friendly place for sure if that is what you are looking for!

I love that as a Hilton honors member we get a $10 credit per person for breakfast, it’s the reason why I always book garden inn Breakfast was yummy and our server was absolutely wonderful, very friendly However I was a little surprised that they do not have any fresh fruit for the pancakes or French toast

The night time gentlemen at the check in desk was very kind and even helped to store some pies for us in the restaurant fridge until checkout Which meant so much to us, because they were for my mom, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that without him! All in all, the service here is fantastic and the employees really match the Hilton way by giving great service to their guests The pool is also a decent size, and gets lots of sunshine so it’s nice to lay out And it’s nice that they have brochures with all the things to do in the areaThe rooms however are a different story The beds are extremely uncomfortable, hard and old The room has a very clear musty odor as soon as you open the door (probably from the very old carpets and curtains getting stuff spilled on them over the years) There are no fans in the bathroom so pray nobody needs to go number two during your trip And the pillows under the cover are completely yellow The hotel needs a serious renovation, especially being in such an upscale town like Sarasota Being an airport hotel is not an exception, especially when there’s another newer Hilton in the same parking lot

Theresa Hoban

The hotel is very spacious with nice modern decor The restaurant and bar had good food and drinks but only to go because they have no servers The pool is large and great for families

The staff were very nice and customer service oriented They have some cleaning and repair issues The grout in bathroom was moldy, stain in bathtub, wallpaper peeling and stained, carpet had dark spot needing cleaning Shower curtain is loose from wall Furniture needs touch up where it’s scratched up They made error on final bill that I caught when I was home They corrected it and got the $10 refunded

Booked this place because it is pet friendly and my family and I were traveling with my small dog Our stay was OK, nothing extraordinary but we did not book any extraordinary rooms I like that they do have a pool available

Only thing that we did not like is the welcome We booked online 2 rooms and when we arrived for check in, the guy only gave us one key We then realized that we booked for 2 rooms, went back and asked He said that since we didn’t say anything he didn’t know But don’t these people have a computer screen in front of them with all information? Like we were already charged for both rooms, but if we don’t say anything we don’t get both keys? Also, he didn’t ask Very sarcastic tone was given For a one night stay its fine but will look for something else if its for longer
