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.

By your own words you gave our business a so-so rating. Please email me what it would take to get a five star rating in terms of what we are not doing so we can continue to improve. More

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!

Great value hotel on the main road between downtown Sarasota and Bradenton. 10 mins drive to downtown Sarasota and 40 mins from the gorgeous Ana Maria Island. Also only 10 minutes drive from I-75 so ideal so North to Tampa and South to Fort Myers and Naples. Some suites available so worth asking about them if you want a bit... More

The group at this place is extremely helpful, friendly. The rooms I have had there were always very clean, well stocked. Never had a problem there. The parking there is well lighted. I will always stay there. They are like family to me.

You get what you pay for in this no-frills motel. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. Front rooms face the main road so the rear rooms are quiet. No ironing boards/irons in rooms (you can borrow one from the office, but they are small travel irons and portable boards - difficult to use. Flat sceen TV's, BUT..no cable... More

We arrived in Sarasota in need of a room but found the mainline other facilities booked. We were not too excited about a Knights Inn because of previoius experience in other towns. But took a chance which turned out to be unbelievable. We asked to check out a room prior to making a commitment. The friendly family owners, husband and... More

This was the third time we stayed at the Inn. The friendly proprietor and his family make sure your stay is comfortable, clean and safe. For a reasonable price, the room is equipped with a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, tv and safe. The bathroom is clean and the shower is great. The continental breakfast starts the day off. Bottled water... More
