Hi Davylynne: Weston is a very convenient place for you to stay on your way to Sarasota. We are located just a km or two away from the toll highway that takes you across the everglades to the west coast of Florida. We have several hotels to choose from and many, many restaurants. The Hyatt Regency is the big hotel that has golf course, spa and several restaurants. Then there's the Marriott that is much more scaled back and basic. I have put family up at the Marriott before and they have said it was fine.
Restaurant choices: if you look at the list of restaurants on TripAdvisor, I can recommend Aqualina, Bonefish, Cheese Course (this place is very small and casual, more like a cafe, but very tasty salads, sandwiches, cheese and wine), Tarantella's and Myoko Sushi.
The only things to do in Weston if you did have the time would be to use the golf courses, there are a few, or take an airboat tour of the everglades, which has always been something my out of town guests have enjoyed.
Let me know if you have other questions.
