I went with my daughter to visit a potential College. The hotel was 5 minutes away, the stuff super friendly, the ambiance very nice and above all super clean! Buffet breakfast was great and offers a lot of food :)

I stayed at this hotel with friends for the Sarasota half marathon and had an excellent stay. The hotel looks brand new and the rooms and property were impeccably clean and comfortable. In addition to a great room - the front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful with offering advice on nearby restaurants and attractions. I will definitely recommend... More

It's very satisfying in my position to read a review such as yours. The team at this property works very hard to insure our guests stay is flawless and enjoyable.

We stayed at this hotel the night before Sarasota's half marathon race. Worst night sleep I ever had. The AC in the room is very loud. There is no option to make it lower or less loud. Just this one high annoying all night noise or no AC at all. There is no late checkout at all. Front desk people... More

I apologize for your lack of sleep due to the A/C unit. If you could email me at d.patrick@hisrq.com I would appreciate it. Although we inspect rooms daily, it sounds as if this may be an oddity. Sometimes going from a home with Central A/C to a hotel room which has closet units, it is harder to adjust to the... More

This is a new hotel in an easy to find location away from the City traffic, but they have not worked out the kinks yet. When I checked in my reservation was for one day so I asked for a two days. Since my reservation was done by American Express Travel which I now know uses Orbitz. They charged me... More

Hotel is beautiful, Each floor when you exit your room has a view of the lobby area which can make it get noisy at times. Rooms are clean, people are friendly and want to make your stay pleasurable. Don't forget to get your breakfast free coupons upon arrival. I didn't and they tried to tell me breakfast was not included.... More

Thank you for your review and taking the time to submit your thoughts. The Atrium does have an echo effect but fortunately dies down rather quickly at night. We are pleased you stayed with us and look forward to your return visit. Dennis l. Patrick General Manager More

We just returned from a weekend here for the half marathon. My husband and I had one room and our daughter and a friend had another. When we checked in, we actually were next door to each other. A pleasant surprise. The hotel is very modern and clean. Check in was a breeze. Beds were comfortable. After returning from the... More

We stayed at this hotel for the Sarasota Half Marathon as it was conveniently located about a 10 minute drive from the race site and in close proximity to good dining options. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The room was great - it was a good size, clean, and the beds were very comfortable. Although... More

Due to a recent injury we needed to change our room request type to handicap accessible. We stayed at a few hotels on our trip to FL and from the size of the room to ease of use of the bathroom and this location was the best overall for fitting our needs. We were unable to use the pool and... More

We stayed here because everything else in Sarasota was outrageously expensive (double last year!) and it got good reviews. Sorry, folks ... I wish we had never seen those reviews because we thoroughly disliked the place. First, the location: back side of the airport, down a relatively barren road, Oh yes, there are signs for a "convention center". Forget it... More

This hotel is very conveniently located if you are flying in/out of SRQ airport--it is right across the street. It also is not far from downtown Sarasota. The hotel lobby is very modern and quite impressive. The hotel has a very open feel, and is well-decorated. The service was decent, though it was somewhat slow to check in. The rooms... More
