What's good: great bed and pillows, helpful front desk staff, convenient location to beaches and Sarasota city, marina side is nice with a view of boats and a nice breeze, worth upgrading, free wireless in room. What's bad: filthy carpet, limited breakfast choices. We liked this place overall. The one thing that irked us was that in spite of a... More

Once we got to check in here, we were upgraded from a regular king room to a more nice king room. Ours had tile floors, lots of tropical decor and looked very nice. Only real issue we had is it seemed like our bed seemed to be well used before we got there. It was pretty squeaky. Over all though,... More

The hotel is under renovation and we got one of the new rooms which are beautiful. You wouldnt be able to tell that they are renovating. The hotel is located right on the marina and is beautiful.

The lobby was clean and well maintained. However, when we (two females traveling on business) went to check in, we had been assigned one king bed rather than the two standard beds. We were re-assigned another room by the desk clerk. In this non-smoking room, the carpets were covered in nicotine, the walls were dirty, the baseboards were moldy, the... More

This hotel was chosen because it was a good rate, and seemed to be a good deal. It was in a good location, and near where I needed to be for work. I did call in before I checked into the hotel. I wanted to make sure that they would have a room available for me to stay in, and... More

Spent the week-end with my girl friends at the Ramada Sarasota. We had a blast. The hotel staff was very friendly. We had a waterfront room which was worth the extra money. The restaurant and tiki bar were great. We can't wait to go back.
