Not walking to the beach
Wrongly advertises proximity to the beach. We researched and were also told over the phone that this hotel was 4-blocks and a 10-minute walk to Siesta Key Beach. Be advised, this hotel is not walking distance to any beach! Otherwise nice enough with good overall value for the area.
Very nice place
My husband and I spent 6 nights at the Hibiscus Suites Inn in Feb. 2006. We found the staff to be pleasant and the accommodations very nice; the furniture is comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The location is ideal for the area. The only drawback was the lack of cable TV (no PBS) but that's a minor issue. We didn't go down there (from NH) to watch television anyway, but would have liked to watch a favorite news program. We recommend the Hibiscus Suites to others--it's a very nice place and it's clear that the owners/managers are interested in doing a good job.
Excellent ... our "every year" new place to go
We loved the Hibiscus Suites Inn. The staff was amazingly friendly. The rooms and beds were awesome!
The location PERFECT, the pool beautiful. We used the grill and cooked in our room some to save money.
But we were able to go a few extra places because the hotel was so reasonably priced ... we even stayed an extra day.
We will stay at the Hibiscus Suites again and again!!
My wife and I stayed at Hibiscus Suites Inn April 2005 for six nights and we were more than thrilled when we got there. We were a little bit scared before because the price was so low and most places around their are a lot steeper but we were going on vacation on limited funds and just wanted a place that wasn't trashy so we could hit the beach every day. We got a lot more than that. The rooms are Very Clean and look exactly like the pictures on the website, the pool is a little decieveing because even though it is very nice and clean, it is right off the road, but it wasn;t a big deal because when you have one of the most beautiful beaches in the United States less than a mile away who needs the pool. I'm planning on returning there in 2007, I would go sooner but my wife is expecting a baby this year. If you are looking for a steal, nice service, and great location, look no further. I only have one minor qualm about it, and it wasn't because of the room. The Public Laundry Room is kind of eerie, and dark, and they only had when I was their 2 machines. But that is very minor, and we used the Laundromat about 2 minutes down the road. Great for Couples!
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :)
What a Bargain!
The Hibiscus Suites is the best place I've stayed in Florida in quite some time. The rooms are brand new, spacious and bright, with a convenient kitchenettes. Everything was exceptionally clean! The living area was well appointed with brand new leather furniture and the feather beds in the bedroom were a pleasant surprise. This hotel has features that you would expect to find in a much pricer setting. We really enjoyed our stay and regretted we couldn't stay longer!
Nicest Suites In Sarasota/Siesta Key
We have been vacationing to Siesta Key for 5 years now, and we have never stayed in Hotel as nice as the Hibiscus Suites Inn! The suites are beautiful, comfortable, and very quiet. Very clean, brand new furniture and appliances, and the featherstuffed comforters on the beds are to die for!! It is a brilliant location... four blocks from the beaches, restaurants & bars, family activities, aquariums and a whole lot more. Just half of a mile up the street we rented a boat for a half day and had so much fun, and when we came back there was a great restaurant right next door where we had a excellent meal. I highly recommend staying at the Hibiscus Suites Inn if you want to experience a great time. Also, thier staff were great! Wonderful, polite housekeepers and front desk personel. Thanks Guys! We will see you next year!
Excellent accomodations, close to everything. We love this place and will definitely stay here again. We though the amenities were great! Great furniture, very comfortable, peaceful, a great way to see Siesta Key. Thank You Hibiscus Suites Inn, you are wonderful!
My husband I stayed there in March 2005. The expensive season for Florida! Every day there were work trucks all over the parking lot, and even for a few days a cherry picker was there so new roof tiles could be out on. No pool just sit and look at the trucks and hope you have a parking space. Then the fun starts our reservations were botched we were told we" may" have to switch room in the middle of our vacation, thier mistake! We were told to put our luggage in the office for a few hours while the rooms were cleaned and we could switch rooms for the last night we were there the people next door were booked to have the room we were in. The suites were the same yet them wanted us use our vacation time time to move. We opted to leave early , very unfriendly office people.
On a good note The rooms were very nice and the cleaning staff very friendly.
Although we did not stay at Hibiscus Suites Inn (see below for explaination) I would highly recommend staying away from this hotel. My mother, sister and I had made reservations and tried to stay there in March. When we arrived the parking lot was full of construction machinery, the pool was closed with a "danger" sign posted on it, and the people at the desk were rude and unhelpful. We had made two reservations, one by phone and one through the internet - with two separate confirmation numbers. We cancelled the internet one, but the hotel had cancelled both, even though they sent us a letter confirming the phone reservation. When we arrived at the hotel we found out we didn't have a room. In the process of trying to figure out what to do, one of the employees started shouting at us, and physically pushed my sister out the door. We went to a nearby business (CB's Saltwater Outfitters) where an employee there was very helpful and assisted us in finding another hotel room. We sent a letter to various local entities (i.e. the Chamber of Commerce) and they are following up on it. We were told that this was not the only complaint against this hotel. I cannot comment on the rooms since we didn't get to see them. I LOVE the Sarasota/Siesta Key area (as does my whole family), so please note that this one horrible experience with one hotel should not reflect on the area itself. The area is beautiful and everyone else we have met there has been very friendly.

Just a side note about "dog people" and "dog culture"... We have owned 3 dogs over the past 30 years. Until this most recent dog, Sammy, we just got a puppy, added it into the family mix and moved on. We had a dog, but we were not "dog people". I did not realize what this meant until this new dog. Since we live in Ohio, if you get a new puppy Feb 1 (stupid idea) you have to do extra things like shoveling snow ...
... is open, as well as the restaurants that serve dinner. Otherwise the sidewalks are rolled up and put away. Not at all what we expected. We came down prepared for crowds and traffic but have seen neither. Probably a function of where we are. The island seems to have 3 separate parts with 3 different personalities. We are at the north end which seems very residential. Holmes Beach, the middle, has the fire dept., library, Publix, and seems busier. We will try dinner there tomorrow, ...
The first thing T wanted to do in Sarasota was return to the building where he vacationed for many years with his parents and Grandma Jeanette. It wasn't hard to find, right on the end of Lido Key. T found things mostly unchanged but built up a little bit, which was the demise of the shuffleboard court. But it was still a beautiful, peaceful strip of beach and N was eager to ...
My favourite was the dwarves garden which had lots of dwarves statues.
Next we went to see the art gallery that had really old paintings and a courtyard with statues.
Finally we went to see the miniature circus, a model of the Ringling circus. It was really interesting!
Then we walked back and had a swim.
Fact: Don't walk on the grass otherwise the ants will bite you!
... Michael every year) friends’, Justin and Kelly’s, house for a lasagna party. Their house was gorgeous, very contemporary but also very comfortable. As gorgeous as the house was the first thing we noticed were their two dogs, a giant schnauzer and a great dane. They were huge, both of their heads reached the top of my stomach. They were two of the sweetest dogs I have ever met, all they wanted was your attention and they would just follow you ...
