Extremely diligent staff. The property is average to above average, however the location near the Manatee river is wonderful. We stayed in a junior suite and it was very large and well appointed. Great for a small family like ours.

Great location on the Manatee River Riverwalk in downtown Bradenton. The hotel was clean and quiet with a beautiful courtyard with fountains and outdoor pool. Trees in the courtyard were decorated with lights at night. Staff were very friendly and aimed to please. Rooms do have refrigerator, but no microwave. The Bistro restaurant provided good food and drinks. A highlight... More
