This place had 5 foot of river water in it a few months ago. The smell is terrible. It's kind of you get what you pay for. They need to invest in upgrading it or board it up. Much nicer places in the area.

I've stayed in many gross hotels and this is definitely one of them. The place is really worn down. We stayed in building C I believe. There were half used shampoo bottles left behind, a lot of dead bugs in the corner of the room, stains on the sheet (that I just prayed were actually clean), and the scent of...

I've stayed here several times, and while it is a much older hotel, it is right on the water and in a great location. The rooms have always been clean and the water is hot, so that's good enough for me!

Location, location, location. This is an older Hotel, after all, Elvis filmed a movie here in 1961. The Hotel took a hit from a hurricane a few months ago, so some of lower area is new, and the 2nd floor is very worn and could stand to be completely reconstructed. But, you get what you pay for. We had a...

This was a basic room, patio facing the water and restaurant. Pool. Right next to the manatee tour marina. Quiet, price was right. Have to agree that the place needed some repairs like the stairs to the second floor.

Stay away! I had hoped for a respite from the chain hotels that dominate Florida but this place was a real stinker. Probably hasty repairs after storm, staff were hardcore, room smelled, and the towels were stained.

A group I am involved with had picked this place for a reunion get together. It is on the water and has good view of area, but is a low budget dive or fish hotel. The cost was very inexpensive but you get what you pay for. Seemed clean but interior was very worn, holes in walls and openings around...

Just because you have a perfect location doesn't always mean you have a great hotel room. Our room was terribly outdated. We rented a 2 double bed room and when we got there our room and a bed in two locations. On the one side the air condition froze us out and the other side it was a little better....
