Believe all of the worst of the other reviews. Delta dumped us here after a cancelled flight, we left after 15 minutes not wishing to risk our safety in such a dilapidated dump. Delta will be hearing from us!

this is THE WORST hotel I have stayed in Florida. DISGUSTING room with dirty everything. My pillow cases looked like they had been used before (several times). I literally used my tee shirts as pillow cases as i was afraid to touch the surface of them. The sheets had "fixins" on them. I checked late, midnight, so there was no... More

Check in was fine, we got to the room, it didn't smell clean (musty & moldy) The bathroom was moldy. The last night my dog brought me a used condom. I would not recommend this hotel. The outside of the hotel needs a lot of cleaning, too.

The room we stayed in smelled musty/moldy. Mold was in the washroom. The telephone did not work at all times. Service was horrible after we reported insufficient toilet paper no one came to give us supplies. The only consolation was a referral by a friendly desk clerk to a nice local Chinese restaurant called yummy Chinese food packed with snowbirds... More

When we walked into our room, there was a used bra laying on one of the beds, there was a huge stain on both comforters, the towels in the bathroom had been used, three cockroaches came up from the sink and shower, and the toilet did not work. I went and asked for a different room, only to find out... More

I used to stay here frequently on visits to Sarasota when this property was branded as a Comfort Inn; this was my first stay here as a Rodeway Inn. Other than the signage, I noticed no real changes between this stay and my previous ones. My room was a large with one king bed, second floor. The room and bathroom... More

Needed a quick place to stay on arrival in Sarasota, stayed here, and we're appalled that management and Rodeway franchise would allow this situation. Openly a place for one night stands by local prostitutes that hangout in the area, and apparently that's not a local secret.

We were very surprised when we stayed here. Nothing was clean. Sheets weren't clean. Sheets were stained with cigarette burns. Bathrooms were not clean. We had to leave. Ask for our money back. It's not in good shape.
