We have stayed in multiple hotels in the Sarasota area in recent years. We love this place and this is our first time here. Close to St. Armands Circle, Lido Beach and Marina Jack's Restaurant. Siesta Key Beach is 10 miles. Grocery shopping is 2-3 miles straight up the road. The hotel will also grocery shop for you. Very friendly... More

My husband and I have been relocated to Sarasota by the company he works for and we came back to this hotel knowing it was pet friendly.

I stayed with my family for several nights at the Residence Inn. The hotel was in the midst of a renovation, but it wasn't terribly noticeable for the most part. The room was nice, and as you probably are aware with Residence Inn you get a kitchen and living area. So even though I was in the smallest type of... More

I'm happy to read you enjoyed your studio suite during your recent stay. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed to read the remainder of your review, which stated the side entry was not locking and my front desk attendant was not to be found. I assure you I am reviewing both of these issues and will have them corrected immediately. Our... More

It's been some moments during our stay where we couldn't find a single person working in the hotel for hours. They were leaving the hotel literally deserted after 8PM. Dogs were barking from other rooms till morning and the pool was always dirty. Due to their ongoing renovation we had our breakfasts in a temporary room with plastic party plates... More

DH and I recently moved to the Sarasota/Bradenton area. We needed a place to stay for several days prior to closing on our new home. Since we have multiple pets, we needed both a pet friendly place AND one that did not require us to be in the room with the pets the entire time. Many years before, I'd stayed... More

Our family stayed here for 2 nights. We used this as our home-base to drive to Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island for the beach. Free breakfast in the morning.

Pros: The meals during the week, along with beer and wine, waffles at breakfast, extras at breakfast, close to Lido beach, great staff. Cons: Needs updating, chemicals in pool or hotub were off making our skin irritate, plastic forks at buffet at times.
