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.

We stayed earlier this month on our annual vacation to FL. We booked last minute, and we didnt regret it! 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. We loved having the full size kitchen, and use of the outdoor grill. We will... More

Located near the airport. Older hotel but well kept. The room was clean and we had plenty if room. Breakfast was great too. Have to keep reconnecting to wifi which is a little annoying. The staff was helpful and accommodating during our stay.

What an absolutely wonderful way to spend a weekend with beaches and the Ringling Brothers Circus Museum right nearby. The staff was wonderful, helpful and very friendly. They absolutely made us want to come back.

If you have stayed at Marriott Residence Inn, you know what you're getting: Friendly staff, full kitchen, spacious room, indoor/outdoor pool, gym equipment, free full breakfast, complimentary coffee/tea (some places add homemade cookies). And that is what you will get at Residence Inn Sarasota. It's about 10-15 min from Sarasota Airport.

This was our second stay at this property, so we liked it enough the first time to return. We'll likely return again, although the second stay was not without a couple of issues. First, when we checked in to our room, we noticed a pronounced and very disagreeable "animal" smell. (The hotel accepts pets.) We complained, but they did not... More

We picked this hotel because it was pet friendly. We have stayed in some pretty terrible pet friendly hotels in the past, but this was not one of them. It actually smelled ok, was clean and quite comfortable. The $75 non-refundable pet fee was steep but for a 3 day stay for a clean place for Fido (not her real... More

We had not stayed here for a few years and were pleasantly surprised that it had been renovated. We were only there two nights but glad we chose to go back.
