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.

Knights Inn has a good location (near The Ringling museum), the rooms are nice, renovated and clean (with microwave, refrigerator, coffe machine, iron, AC ...), breakfast is ok and the personnel is very nice and helpful.

Booked late for Memorial weekend, and was impressed with the price. Once we arrived, check in was quick and painless...no one trying to sell you time shares! Room key worked on first swipe, and the room was perfect for us. It had everything we needed, plus the kitchen sink! Yes it is a little dated, but it is funtional and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights because it was near the airport. Bigger name hotels are located nearer to SRQ but I was attracted by the price rather than the location. Wake up to a Keurig coffee maker in your room with coffee included. Decent continental breakfast that you take back to your room. Our room was immaculate!

I visit Sarasota frequently and I always stay at Knights Inn. This hotel is near the airport, restaurants and attractions I like. I always make a reservation. Upon my arrival for a recent stay while attending an event, the Manager, Mr. Patel, advised me that although I had made a reservation for a king size bed, he had a suggestion... More

We stayed at Knights Inn for 1 night on our way to Orlando. Room was clean (with Refrigerator and microwave), beds very comfortable and the front desk man extremely nice, friendly and helpful. I think the hotel is run by a family. Breakfast is included and is good (cereals, toast, bagels, fruit, coffee, juice,...), maybe you should add a few... More

Pleasant experience, wonderful owner who cares about his guests. Well kept landscaping. Keurig in room, complimentary water bottles in room, too. Clean!!!!! Close to airport and Ringling Museum. Great value, this is not our first visit and the experience is consistent. We will return for business in June, 2014.

I will not stay at this hotel again. The room was dirty. We could not swim in the pool because it had not been cleaned in forever. HOWEVER, the worst was we left behind our son's sleeping buddy. Later that afternoon we called and the manager on duty told us he had found it, it was in their storage room... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments about our hotel. The allegation that one of our employees took home a used child’s toy is bizarre and unfounded, but we do sincerely apologize that the toy was lost on our property and that we were unable to find and return it. I also sincerely apologize that you did not find our accommodations... More

Very nice Front Desk person, I didn't have to ask for discounts, he asked me first if I had AAA or Senior Citizen. He game me Veteran discount. The room was very clean. Excellent pillows and bed sheets. For the price and the age of the Hotel is very good. Will come back!
