The guy at checkin was very friendly. Room good for the price. Breakfast means toasting some bagels, grabbing some orange or apple juice and taking it to your room. Checkout was very unfriendly, the lady didn't say a single word. Would it hurt?

I felt comfortable and the staff was friendly. Plenty of parking out back if you have a boat attached to your transportation. Visually a little concerning but after staying I felt comfortable and my room was clean. Small frig and microwave in your room. Continental breakfast was what you would typically think of as a continental breakfast not an upgraded... More

Room was clean. Some cosmetic needs but did not deter from enjoyment of the stay. Near airport but no noise from plane. Right on Rte. 41 but no car noise, either. Bed was very comfortable. Pool was clean. Staff very friendly.

We spent one night at the Knights Inn in Sarasota. It’s located near the airport, which is convenient. This is a fairly basic motel, but the rooms are fairly comfortable and have all of the necessities. The price is a bit high for what you get, but that may have been due to the time of year we were there... More

Clean room and shower, breakfast with fresh coffee and bagels, located diagonally opposite of the Ringling Museum and easy to access. Careful if you're sensitive about street-noise. No problem for me as I liked the bed ☺

Assigned to room 222. Room was terrible. Wallpaper was pealing off, semi-patched holes in the walls. Could not keep water in the wash basin. Asked for some kind of a stopper. Stopper that was supplied could not fit over the drain due to a hair screen that could not be removed. Had to keep the water running to use the... More

It was a nice, clean motel on a busy highway. You can get better places in Sarasota, but for the money this was a good choice. It's a short drive to the beach, the city center is nice and you can find some good restaurants in the area. Breakfast was ok, not too fancy.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and allowed us to check in early so we wouldn't have to wait 3 hours until normal check in. Room was clean, pool was clean, continental breakfast good. Wish we would have found them sooner, we will definitely stay with them again! And you can't beat the price! Thank you for the wonderful stay!
