We were on the East Coast of Florida when the governor announced this storm will kill you. We made reservations at the Ambassador Suites having no prior knowledge of the area and lucked out. The hotel is located just off I-75 and only a few miles from downtown Venice and the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Parking is free and the building in appearance and cleanliness was great. The pool in front of the hotel is small but clean and refreshing. Janet at the front desk and staff were friendly, professional and helpful. It was suggested that we stay on the third floor since no one would be on top of us and we got room #314. The room was spacious with a love seat, two queen beds easy chair and table with chair. There were a microwave, refrigerator and small sink. The shower had good temperature with adequate pressure. The queen bed close to the window is close to the HVAC unit and makes it hard to get into the bed by the wall. I found the beds hard but the room was very quiet even in a sold-out market. The breakfast bar is a step above with cinnamon bites, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, cereal, fruit cups, waffles, and pancakes. Selection of juice or soda's.
We would stay there again if in the area. less

So glad you enjoyed our hotel and the area. Many people from the east coast take mini vacations to our coast to enjoy the more laid back atmosphere. Again, glad you enjoyed.
