Had a chance to stay here when I was working in the Sarasota/Tampa area. Rooms are quiet and spacious. Full size kitchen. I enjoyed the managers reception. Great food as well as fellowship. The breakfast was also great. Convenient location across from the airport and great dining.

Good location near to the USF Manatee Sarasota campus. Attentive staff and friendly. My family and I enjoyed pool , the grill and various facilities except for the fire pit. Although I was looking forward to sitting and enjoying the "campfire" with the children the staff was not able to get it to burn. The AC in our room stopped... More

In all important respects this inn provided the expected service very competently. A few small issues included a loud a/c fan, a running toilet and a sink drain with a pop-up that would not work. As I usually arrive late to hotels, I often do not bring up small issues like these to the staff. Overall, I was very satisfied.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this residence inn. We had some initial difficulty with the air conditioner in our room but they were very prompt in dealing with it and getting us into another room. We found the bed in the second room to be much more comfortable. The best part was the staff at the desk, at breakfast... More

Please take note that the General mgr at this hotel WILL NOT HONOR the mistakes if her incompetent staff. I was given a quote for my stay by the front desk employee and paid the money to the general mgr up front only to be charged more money after my stay because her employee did his math wrong.

This was a 2-night stay - an in and out trip so I didn't spend that much time at the hotel. Check-in: I wish desk attendants would stop asking "Why are you here?" I guess that's small talk, but I find it invasive. Otherwise, check-in was efficient. Plenty of open parking so that was fine. The hotel is right near... More

This Residence Inn is well maintained and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is on par with other Residence Inns however their evening reception was lacking compared to other Residence Inns I have been to around the country. They did more snacks like s'mores and cookies. They did have a local toco truck come out but you had to pay... More

We arrived at the Residence Inn around midnight on a Friday night. Autumn Westbrook was extremely accommodating and nice. She offered me a corner room and adviced me that I might hear some noise from the street..but since we had my dog with us we took the chance and LOVED the room! The room was spacious, clean and very nice.... More

You know what you are getting when you stay atResidence Inn, but I was surprised that they now have Paul Mitchell toiletries. We stayed in the two bedroom suite with a full kitchen, and it was perfect for families...split plan means alone time. Worth the extra money, and it's a free upgrade if you are a Gold Elite Member.

The gentleman who checked us in was very pleasant, and gave some great reccomendations for dinner. The room was very clean, and up to date.
