Clean room although would benefit from updates to the decor. The pool area is calm and relaxing with great views. Hotel is fairly close to many of the points of interest in the area. Tom and Scott at the front desk were both very courteous, helpful and went out of their way to answer any questions we had.

We have stayed here three times this year and every time has been Great! Scott and Tom at the Front Desk were both so helpful and even wrote out directions for us to get to the beach areas. The view of the water is so nice to sit at the pool and have a few cocktails and wind down. The... More

But good price- however, next day I saw other rooms that were much nicer looking- so guess I just got an older room. But, the night shift attendant, Scott was so accommodating & positive....and Tom the day time attendant... More

Dear Mr. Dimaggio, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am truly sorry about the issues during your stay.

My husband and I stayed here during the first week of April. The location is beautiful, it's located on a scenic waterway with a nice pool. Some of the other hotels in the same price range only had a parking lot to look at. Having the restaurant 'The Bearded Clam' offering pub food and drinks was convenient since you could... More

I travel quite a bit, for both work and pleasure. Never have I encountered a better Front Desk staff member as SCOTT. He greeted us warmly, was quick witted, extremely quick and efficient, and made us feel very welcomed! His knowledge of the area was precise, informative and very helpful to us out of towners. We were there on a... More

Staff either doesn't care or is so woefully understaffed they don't even have enough towels 2 days running. Tiny cramped breakfast room. Old and dirty. They obvious;y care about the outside bar that is open until 2AM, but nothing else. Pool water was green and cloudy. The view on the "Sea View" side overlooks a beautiful marina, but nothing else...

Dear Brtman, Thank you for taking the time and writing this review. We appreciate all responses both positive and negative. First off I want to apologize about the towel issue. We had a small fire in one of our large dryers at the end of the week which took down around 20% of our inventory. The pool issue is inexcusable,... More

My family and I stayed at the Ramada Sarasota one night about two weeks ago. We'd just returned from a cruise, but wanted one more day near water. I read the reviews here and on Yelp, and was very apprehensive about staying here. Honestly, I worried for basically nothing, and I am really picky where hotels are concerned. The staff... More
