We just stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving week. It is in great condition, it is kept clean and neat, and the staff is super friendly. They have a fabulous complimentary breakfast that had something for everyone, hot and cold, including make your own waffles. And there is lots of seating which is nice. The breakfast/lounge area is open to the main lobby. The staff is very friendly and goes above and beyond for service. The rooms are quiet, which is unusual for an airport hotel. The air conditioning unit is in the room, as it is in most hotels of this caliber, and the fan runs most of the time, but it's far enough away from the bed that it doesn't bother you like it will in some hotels. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are roomy. My only complaint is about the other guests. We had a few that would come down to breakfast straight out of bed. So in their pajamas, visibly unkempt, and reaching down their pajama pants to scratch their rear end and then touching the serving utensils. While obviously this isn't the hotel's fault, perhaps they could remind their guests somehow that street clothes are recommended in the lobby and lounge area.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Sarasota area. We have stayed at quite a few of them in this price range and this is certainly one of the best.
