my sisters and I had a room on the bottom floor facing the pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a small hotel but had everything we wanted including the price. It is sandwiched between all the high price hotels. Our room was so pretty and clean. We brought our own food to save money and we...

Rock hard pillows, very tired furnishings, in-room coffee maker but no coffee - grocery store miles away, heard every word of the conversation next door spoken in normal tones. Only two new items: the refrigerator you had to move a heavy chair to open and a giant industrial toilet plunger which hardly inspired confidence in the plumbing.

We put those new "rock hard" pillows in just for your enjoyment. We strategically placed the grocery store many miles away to make shopping for groceries super difficult. Made sure the guests next to you were extra loud so you could hear every word. Didn't have time to super glue the refrigerator door shut so we had to place that...

My husband and I loved staying here and hope to return. The room was spacious and though the buildings are older, they are well kept with newer furniture, flooring, etc. The beds were very comfortable (and I'm pretty picky). I loved the beachy colors too. I had a work emergency and was able to use the office computer to print...

We stayed at this quaint little place 2/12-2/16 and were happy with it. It is retro '50s but well maintained. Don't expect elevators because there aren't any. Tis only two stories though and right on Lido Beach and one mile (walkable) from St. Armands Circle with shops and restaurants galore. Our room was like a studio w/ two comfortable queens,...

Hubby and I are Staying at coquina on the beach thanks to a family recommendation. We extended our stay because we were having such a great time! This hotel is so clean, we are extremely picky about cleanliness and we're very impressed. We moved to second floor bc we extended our stay and our original room was booked. I actually...

We spent one night at Coquina to celebrate my birthday and had a beautiful surprise with the upgrade of our room. We were told that there was an available room with a better view to the ocean and that we could stay there since we had only one night reservation. All I can say is that I saw the most...

Old style place with great beach access , rooms are HUGE but fairly dated. The housekeeping was excellent. Very close to St Armand's Circle and all that it has to offer. The parking lot spaces are pretty tight if you are driving and beware the early morning raccoons in the dumpster. Never did use the pool but the sunsets were...

As others have said, the rooms are a little rustic, or shabby chic, but that's fine for the beach. The manager (Andrea?) was very helpful, first in opening the unorthodox sofa bed, then, more important, refunding our payment once we'd experienced the red tide. It hit just as we arrived. Never experienced it before. Very toxic. We were coughing as...

We made a last minute reservation to stay at Coquina and were pleased overall with our stay. I can overlook some peeling pain and chipped cabinets for friendly, helpful staff and such an awesome location! The room was large and clean. I have never stayed at a hotel that is right on the beach, so I was surprised by the...

This was our second trip to Sarasota and we stayed here over the weekend. When we first pulled into to what seemed to be a residential area, we weren't sure what to expect. Once in to that tight parking lot, we saw the building and it's access to the beach. What other reviewers are saying about the hotel being 'tired'...
