Stayed one night. The hotel is basically in very poor shape inside. The stairs leading tlo the 2nd floor are very noisy. The room door handle was not working properly, had to get the front desk clerk to assist. The room smelled awful. The bathroom was in very sab shape; no trash can, the tub was dirty with mold, the...

The Sleep Inn is right by the Sarasota/Bradenton airport, is almost secluded in its location, with palms and vegetation all around, and surprisingly quiet. Didn't hear planes at all. The room wasn't real large, but was pleasant and clean, with fairly simple decor. Good TV service and WiFi connection. The nicest feature was the spacious walk-in stall shower. Breakfast was...

I had been to this hotel in past years and found it quite decent. This year was different. To begin with, the King Sized bed room was very small, with the bed taking up most of the room. There was only one chair, and it was obvious the room was intended for one rather than two people. My wife's jewelry... More

I asked for an updated room and was very pleased with it. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. I did not see any bugs as the other reviews talked about. I would have liked a refrigerator in the room for dinner left overs. The owner was very friendly and polite and we felt that he was... More

Pathetically dirty and the owner is the rudest person I've ever met. Not only do they overcharge your credit card, but will argue over and over about it. Avoid this place at all cost. Roaches in the room, food was horrible, etc.

From an unbiased perspective, the front desk was very helpful and efficient, the rooms were on the small side but clean, and the free breakfast was palatable. This is probably an acceptable motel/hotel to stay at especially if you're not planning on too much luxury and if you spend most of your time not in your room. The one negative... More

The Sleep Inn was a very nice place to stay, but when I went out to lay by the pool, they had no louge chairs which show that they have them in their pictures! My husband went out and bought me one since we were going to stay for a whole week. The pool was full of leaves and branches... More

We had no idea what we would find when we got here all the way from Kansas but our experience was wonderful. Everything was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is adequate, bed is wonderful, shower is hot, towels clean and everything you could expect for the price. We would definitely stay here in the future.
