We arrived late evening to find an excellent location within easy reach of the Airport and Ringling Museum. Room was more than comfortable, roomy, well appointed and selflessly clean. Breakfast was ample and varied. Overnight stay did not afford the opportunity to explore other amenities.

I rented a 1-bedroom suite for 2 couples. The website said it would accommodate 4 people. The hide-a-bed in the sofa was a small double, very thin, and sagged in the center, very uncomfortable for 2 adults. It might be ok for small children, but not adults. There are comfortable hide-a-beds available, but this was not it. Next time, I... More

We were staying at "Residence Inn Sarasota Bradenton" just a couple nights in January. It was excellent experience. Each room has it own a little kitchen, which makes trip very convenient. Location is great, service is excellent, very clean! We already have reserved a few nights in April, we are looking forward to it :)

This hotel is tired; staff, including the manager not pleasant. I had to ask to have the tinsel-like material which was there when we arrived vacuumed 3 or 4 days after we arrived. I also had to ask to have the bedding changed after over a week and was told it is changed every 4 days. Strange how the mascara... More

When we arrived we were very well impressed by the pleasant lobby, great room and living/kitchen. Everything was sparkling, nice furniture and enough dishes for our stay (more than 2 weeks), BUT, the maid service was unreliable and unsatisfactory. Three times the room remained undone. When we requested the service, the answer was that the maids were gone! We were... More

This hotel turned out to be a great place to stay. It was clean and service was good. The breakfast was varied and tasty. Each night there was a "mixer" with complimentary food and drinks -- very nice and unexpected. Having a room with a small kitchen and separate living room is very handy. My only complaint is that a... More

We stayed here for 5 nights last week and so many things went wrong that I am not sure we would come back. We have stayed at many Residence Inns in the past and we love them for so many reasons. We were at the end of the hall on the 3rd floor so it was nice and quiet (... More

We recently stayed here on a weekend trip to Sarasota. Is especially nice when you can stay at a hotel and can't say anything negative about it no matter what the price. In fact, everything was perfect. The room was very nice. The free breakfast was one of the best I've had. Also the room was extremely quiet which I... More

We stayed here three nights while visiting the Sarasota area. It was OK, but for the price, we would probably seek another hotel if we returned to the area. On the positive side, the staff, especially the evening manager, was very welcoming and helpful--4 stars. However, I would rate the facilities themselves as only average compared with other Residence Inns... More
