About Owner/Property Manager DAVID GOLDSMITH

I have lived in Tampa Florida for over 40 years, but grew up in Missouri

Owner/Property Manager DAVID GOLDSMITH purchased this hotel in 2009

Why Owner/Property Manager DAVID GOLDSMITH chose Sarasota

I bought this property when it was a hotel condo. It is now managed by Ramada Inns, although my 5 rooms are independently operated

What makes this hotel unique

Very peaceful marina waterfront. Boat rentals are available right here.

The hotel's housekeeping service readies the room before each stay - Contact the front desk if the room is not clean...

YOU are responsible for keeping my room neat and tidy for your stay, and providing supplies over the initial ones provided the first night by the hotel. Housekeeping can be provided for a fee of $30 any day you want it, directly from the front desk of the hotel...

Overall, fairly good. Comfortable clean bed. Lovely view.

  • 5 of 5

It was all good! I didn't expect to be under the airport landing strip but can't say that it truly bothered me. The fan on the air conditioner creaks like a door in a scary movie every time it stops, after awhile it just made me giggle! Friendly people. Totally enjoyed it.

Nice marina sunset view on our 1st snowbird trip.

  • 5 of 5

This was just as expected. We enjoyed the place, bar, pool, boating. The 2nd floor makes for a nice view. We spent a couple weeks here. It would be nicer if it did not have carpet but I am not complaining. The price is good for what you get. There are stores near by. There are washing machines in one of the buildings. They have a nice workout room. We used it on a rainy day. I think it was 10 miles or less to sandy golf coast beaches, Anna Maria Island & Manatee beach. We walked & bike the local neighborhood. People are friendly. As for the planes & airport near by, we enjoyed seeing them coming in for a landing. They are not loud when landing & very few come in at night. We kept a little boat out front. There is a little island just outside Sara bay. We went there for sunsets & just to be alone during the day. It is a nature preserve island. Hope to return again, hard to beat the price. David the owner is quick to reply. We extended our stay & David made it easy for us. Don`t expect to check in early. They don`t clean these rooms till last. We knew this & it was no problem. The staff was nice. Yes I recommend this place & hope to return. Thanks again for letting us stay there!

With a few added touches...

  • 4 of 5

The room was very adequate for my purposed but came up a little short for five stars. 3 1/2 would have been my rating if it was available.

Here's the good:

1. Great bed - this matters a lot.

2. Good price - I made my plans late and this was the best deal I could find on a decent hotel room. It was good value.

3. Nice amenities: TV, microwave, coffee were all fine.

4. The view outside of the room was lovely and as pictured.

Here's where it could have been better:

1. Two cheap, postage stamp bath towels are provided. That may be satisfactory for one night but for longer stays I'd suggest the owner provide better towels and more towels. Although this is a hotel room in essence it is not cleaned on a daily basis so the towels need to stay fresh/clean for your whole stay.

2. Similarly, we ran out of shampoo on day 3.

3. The lock on the door was a bit loose.

4. There's nothing the owner can do about this one, but the lobby decor isn't what I expect from a Ramada.

Notwithstanding the above, I would stay there again in the same circumstances.

Good Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and it was an excellent value. The view overlooking the small marina was great and the room met our needs. Wifi was good and it was nice to have a king sized bed. A lot of air traffic coming into the near-bye Sarasota airport at times but we got used to it. Owner was good to deal with.

It was okay,

  • 3 of 5

Very good location for us. Room basic no frills but room was clean, however carpets needed to be shampooed. When I saw the dirty carpet It made ne leary of how clean the room was, but it was clean. If you added a pretty comforter, some assent pieces and a small table instead of desk would be better and more inviting..must say, price was great
