Was greeted by Debbie, the General Manager, upon checking in. She asked if we had a room preference which I thought was wonderful (we didn't). The hotel is tucked away at the end of a short street that is directly across from a main road leading into the airport. This was so incredibly convenient for us. The hotel was spotless.... More

The area is nice and there's plenty of parking. The hotel room was fine - clean sheets and view of the swimming pool was nice - but there were a few unpleasant things, too. Our room smelled like some type of chemical and our carpets were wet. Maybe they needed to clean up a mess from the previous guests or... More

It is an affordable but very nice place to stay. The room is clean and tidy. Though near to the airport, it is very quiet! I'd stay here again next time I come Sarasota. What I need to mention is that if you are driving here, please be careful since Sarasota has many red light cameras and yellow light is... More

The Sleep Inn on University Blvd. was a bed and a clean room. The continental breakfast was terrible. The hard boiled eggs were old, the sausage was tasteless, and the coffee tasted "blah". I ended up having a good ole' bowl of raisin bran and that was it. The front desk clerk in the evening didn't even know how to... More

Clean and comfortable. Staff very pleasant and accommodating- Charles at the front desk has fabulous people skills and was gracious and helpful. Room was clean and bed comfortable-a microwave and small fridge and coffee maker was available in room. Not a super deluxe property, but more than adequate for the very reasonable price, also free WiFI! A computer desk and... More

It was a bed. Clean but nothing special. A/C extremely noisy, telephone between rooms was frustrating (broken, but i'm sure this was a once off problem and probably shouldn't be applied to 'every room and situation'). Pool area and tables were dirty, leaves everywhere and things generally needed a little maintenance. There was no bottled water in the room (i... More

Chris, thanks for staying with us and reviewing our hotel. We recently renovated the property and are currently making the final touches - we apologize this may have interfered with your stay (i.e. AC unit). We try to keep up with the outside work, but at this time of the year the leaves are falling and the wind makes a... More

Very pleased with the stay here. Very clean. The staff was great also. I highly recommend this hotel. The location was super easy to find. I will stay at the hotel again. For those who need a place to stay near the airport it's right across the street.

Charles at the front desk checked us in & took good care of us the two nights we stayed there. He baked some delicious chocolate chip cookies. Because this motel is back off University Parkway nestled between a Marriott Courtyard and a Hyatt Place, it's easy to miss it. But it's in a quiet location with lots of parking. Our... More

Great choice here. We were greeted by an extra friendly desk clerk. Room was clean and amazing view of a neighbouring garden. You get more than what you pay for. There are complimentary cookies and coffee. The room was very comfortable. Minor issues: rooms are not very noise proof and the breakfast area cannot accommodate many guests.

Fairly inexpensive. Rooms were fairly clean. Pool was warm! Hotel was 15-20 minutes from Lido and Siesta Beach. Within 15 minutes of Pinecraft in Sarasota. It's a little ways off the road and might not be marked as well as it should. Overall a nice stay!
