Bearing in mind the current owners have run this since 1994, they've let it get run down. Everything needs a facelift. Overall the bedroom was clean. The bed linen was clean, but old. The bathroom was spotless. The floors were dirty. The decorations were dated. The plasterwork needs some rework and the doorframes are filthy. I think they're patching up... More

I was in Sarasota to attend a show at the Asolo Repertory Theater. This place is within walking distance of the theater, and provided me with a clean, no-frills room for about $77. The staff was friendly and efficient. The only downside: I stayed in a room facing the street, and traffic noise was audible late into the night. I... More

We stayed here on route to Orlando from the Keys. It was easy to find, the staff were friendly and welcoming and gave us a ground floor room to save us having to carry out bags upstairs! The room was clean spacious, comfortable bed and hot shower. We even had a continental breakfast included. Excellent value for money!!

Be careful if there's even a chance you may cancel. I needed to cancel my trip. The owner, "Mr. Patel", told me I was being charged the first night's room fees anyway and told me it was not him who was charging me but the on-line service (Booking.com) who was imposing the penalty. This was a flat out lie. He... More

Knight’s Inn Sarasota is what I consider... just right. Its got what one needs for a pleasant stay. It is very close to the Sarasota airport, short drive to hangout spots, dining, and shopping with a manageable price. Arvind (General Manager) and his staff provide a good service and he also has a small continental breakfast for you in the... More

If your visiting Sarasota, this is the place to stay. Its well priced, an easy stroll to the Ringling complex and the car museum. A good breakfast, clean rooms with microwave and fridge. Highly recommended. Our room 102, had fast easy connect Internet access.

We have spent our vacation here for nearly ten years and would not consider an alternative in Sarasota. Having stayed in various motels in Florida, California and Arizona, this remains our favourite and feels like home. Accommodation and service are excellent and the manager is friendly and helpful and makes the extra effort to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of... More

Stayed for a night with the girlfriend recently during our road trip around Florida. Friendly customer service, well equipped rooms with fridge and microwave, bed was comfy. Only complaint was their wifi, which was very slow (when it worked). Other than that, would definitely stay again. Ticks all the boxes for cheap and comfortable.
