I am scoring this 5 out of 5 not because it is the best place we stayed while in Florida but because you have to facture in the price to your rating and for the price this place was great. When we stayed there for about $114 (+ taxes) hotels out by the beach some 10 minutes drive away were... More

Dear Tom M Limerick, Thank you for being a top contributor for Trip Advisor! I agree with you 100% on the lack of affordably along the coastline within Sarasota. The Regency Inn & Suites will always provide great accommodations built on guest loyalty and value. As a hotelier without great service and value we have nothing. Thanks, for your comments... More

We found this property after having a horrible experience at a nearby motel. We were unsure, as the exterior is reminiscent of older, deteriorating properties. To our surprise, all the rooms are newly remodeled. The beds, linens, and pillows were brand new and very comfortable. The room was clean, well-appointed, nicely decorated and comfortable.

We stayed for 4 nights recently and were very pleased with our room. Very clean and well kept. Staff and management are very friendly and helpful, and it was great to have access to laundry facilities. We would be happy to stay again the next time we are in the area.

This motel is clean and has good storage options for clothes and toiletries. It was a great value for my parents and my two small kids. Everything looked brand new except the tub, the manager was super helpful to my dad and it was just overall a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here during early March and our group had 2 rooms. They were slightly different but both equally nice. The exterior definitely says "motel." But, the owners are obviously trying to maintain a very old property and are actually doing a good job of it. We did not have the suite rooms. We had basic double bed rooms and... More

We found our room spare and uninviting. I would not want to spend any time there except to sleep. The staff is friendly and helpful, however. Location is on a busy highway so one cannot walk anywhere safely. I would not recommend this hotel for more than a quick sleep over while on one's way somewhere. The room was clean... More

We wanted a vacation from the Pittsburgh winter so we booked a 7 day stay. The room is really nice! It has a small kitchen so we didn't have to spend a ton of $ eating out every day. We had a 1 yo with us so we needed a crib. The owner went out and got one for us.... More

This 1960s vintage outside entry property might scare you initially because of its age. So many properties of this vintage are bad experiences. The Regency, however is restored and the exterior is like brand new and tastefully landscaped. The big surprise is inside the rooms. Painting was done by people who knew how to paint straight lines. Woodwork and flooring... More
