My business travels took me to Sarasota for a few days. The company I was working with suggested this hotel. It was a newer, clean and inviting property. Very friendly front desk staff that was always accommodating. Their shuttle service was great and allowed me to skip renting a car for the time I was there. The room was a... More

I have always come to expect the best from Marriott rooms. Checked in with new app, interaction with front desk was a breeze. Room was nice and clean. Breakfast was phenomenal, whole breakfast area was super clean. I stayed only one night but wanted to stay another night because breakfast was so good. Eggs, sausage, sausage with hash browns, onions... More

We were met by the front clerk , JACK, who was simply amazing!!!JACK not only checked us in early, gave us specific directions to our room, but also took the time to tell us about a very good pizza place to grab dinner. Another clerk gave our kids Gatorade bottles. Both employees make this location great. Room 316 was clean... More

This is the first Residence Inn we have stayed at since a disastrous stay in Naples where a poor quality halfhearted renovation took place. This property is well professionally run with tastfull decor , a quality property where people care. We will certainly return.

My husband and I have stayed at all levels of Marriott properties and our stay here is another reason why we are loyal customers. Every single staff member we encountered was so friendly and always ready to make recommendations of what to see and where to eat in the area. We came to see the Orioles on their last spring...

My family stayed for one week and had excellent service and a wonderful stay. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the facility. My kids loved the sport court and all the equipment available at the front desk. We enjoyed the evening appitizers on 3 evenings and enjoyed breakfast as well.

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
