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

Delivered everything a Marriott stands for. The front desk gentleman was very welcoming and helpful. Loved the outdoor fireplace but did not get to enjoy it. We will stay here again ! Loved the spacious kitchen. Thought we might hear planes as we were so close to the airport but we didn't hear a thing !

We stayed here over Xmas while visiting family. The location is across from the airport and easy to access from highway. Also convenient to other areas of Sarasota (downtown, beaches) about 10-15 min via car. Rooms are comfortable although other residence inns offered a king bed, this one only has queen beds and the bedroom is pretty small. The living... More

This is a really nice Residence Inn. It is right across the street from the Sarasota Airport, but I never heard any planes or other airport noise. It’s on a main road, but sits way back and is surrounded by pretty foliage. No noise issues at all! Before I go on, let me say this. I LOVE that I had... More

This trip was one of our 8 trips per year with two high school age soccer teams and a total group of about 40. We almost always stay at a Residence Inn for the full hot breakfast and kitchens in every room. We had a fantastic experience in every aspect of our stay at this location. Starting with the sales...

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. I called... More
