This place looked nothing like the pictures on the website!!! Would never recommend thus place to anyone....!
2nd floor with stove and refrigerator
1st floor no stove or balcony
This was our second time staying at the Golden Host. The staff was great and friendly as always and the room was great. We first found this quiet and quaint hotel by accident 2 years ago and vowed to let this be our main stay whenever we come to Sarasota and siesta key. If you are looking for a nice family friendly hotel, please try Golden Host, my family loves it!! :)
got there no cars in parking lot( no guests ) room was very musty and was in desperate need of paint and upgrades, pool was green, girl at front counter still charged me for a night even though I asked to see the room before staying. was not very happy, does not look and sound like the place described on internet would never stay there and would not recommend.also drove by the whole time I was in Sarasota and still no cars in the parking lot which should tell you something about the place
The snakes in the garden area. When staff was told the snakes eat the roof eats and mice...
Just free Wi-Fi
Everything was bad, staff was rude, pool was nasty and a gardening hose was inside, AC didn't work, lights went out when things got plugged in, everything was horrible.
The receptionist Aisha was very rude. She does not have any idea what customer service is. She made me feel like if I was not paying for the service.
the place should be torned down and burnt
Close to beach
There was a very bad smell. There was blood splatter on back of wall behind the beds. Did not smell,feel or look clean.
it look nice online,
rooms were not ready. staff were not polite... didn't even apologize when I came back the second time & gave us the wrong room on top of that it was a renovate room .... I wouldn't recommend this place to no one. I don't mean nothing bad but they got it get their stuff together,,,for people that are new in the area
The staff was friendly and helpful.
The matres-bed was bad.
The hotel was run down. The breakfast food was stale and there was much provided. The staff seemed to be running late each morning.
Location, helpful personnel, nice breakfast room and pool area.
Needs a little more attention to cleanliness and upkeep. A little paint and new linens would go a long way.
the only thing i liked was the staff, they were really nice!
I think that their rate is ridiculous for a few bucks more you can stay at a way hotel! The room was stuff and smelled, the bathroom was not up to par, and the a/c didn't work well and made to much noise, i was extremely dissapointed, will never ever stay there again! Oh not to mention the key card didn't work half the time, had to keep running to front desk, from the back of hotel to get re-keyed
I feel that the Golden Host Resort was centrally located any easy access to most places. I liked that it was clean. I liked that there was some breakfast. I liked there was a pool.
Room was clean but in need of update. Musty odor in room, especially strong when first walking into room.
Tub was dirty. Room was stale and musty. Alarm clock did not work. Ironing board was broken. The general appearance was rundown!
slymy pool,t.v. did not work,poor continental breakfast,snakes in courtyard.
Run down buildings
Size of beds - too small room too old not renovated
A clean place ..very comfy
wi-fi is slow, not a good location, its an older place
It was definitely peaceful and in a good location. The staff was pleasant and jus because of them , if come again .
Paid too much for the rooms , no cable , room didn't look anything like the pictures . I was in a smoking room with no ashtrays , counter burns from previous renters , sockets didn't work in room 122 , and 330..
Wi -Fi properly worked only in the reception area
Loved the rates and clean rooms... and yes the free breakfast... don't have to pack kids in car for breakfast
