“Clean, Well Run, Helpful Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Stayed here in October of 2012 for 4 days of business travel, fit the bill perfect. Property was clean and well maintained. Front desk person was efficient and helpful when I checked in, grabbed a few snacks and went up to my room. I had two queens and the room still had enough room for doing some work at the desk. Every morning utilized the free breakfast downstairs which was great. The had coffee hot a ready each morning, I was up early, in addition they had healthy choices and some sugary stuff, I love to start my day off with something healthy. They lady who handled the breakfast area must have cleaned up 2 times when I was there, needless to say it was spotless. I loved the hardboiled eggs and juices.
I also came to the hotel without a rental car since our training was being done in the boardroom. They offer the shuttle for FREE to nearby restaurants, wow! I used the shuttle each night and it was quick and convenient.

We decided "on the fly" to stay here while traveling along the FL coast.
Had our doubts about it being so close to the airport but we never heard any air traffic.
The 3 year old complex proved to be a good choice.
The room was spacious as well as the bathroom.
It held up to our hotel criteria of clean, quiet, & comfortable.
After a long day on the road the free beer, wine, soda and snacks were much appreciated.
In the morning they offered a nice selection in their free breakfast buffet to get us going for the day.
It was only 1 mile down the road from our favorite FL art museum, The Ringling, which we visited after check out.

I'm giving them 4/5 because the beds are a little firm for my tastes (but not for my friend), for the institutional gray walls, and for the spots on the carpet. However, this is a nice, clean hotel and centrally located between Sarasota and St. Pete. It's about 12 minutes from downtown Sarasota and 20 minutes to Trader Joe's (for those people in Orlando coming to shop at Florida's second TJ). It's easy to find and has ample parking that feels safe at night.
The rooms are comfortable with lots of plugs for electronics, including in the lamps by the beds. There is a light for each bed and lots of light in the room, including the bathroom. The bathroom is nice and clean without mildew. Unfortunately, there is no extra heat or heat lamp in the bathroom, so if you like the room cool, the bathroom will be cool, too. The air conditioner works well, but it's a little noisy when it comes on.
There's a desk and plenty of room for your luggage (especially in the 2 queen deluxe rooms). There's a small single cup coffee maker which quickly makes an okay cup of coffee. There's also coffee and tea available in the lobby in the evening and in the breakfast area in the morning.
The breakfast room downstairs is beautifully and elegantly decorated with high top chairs and groupings of tables with chairs and sofas. The breakfast in the morning is extensive, including mixed fruit cocktail, fruit juice, hot oatmeal (with peanut butter, almonds, raisins, and brown sugar available), instant grits, eggs, meat, pastries (kind of dry and stale), waffles, toast, cereal (raisin bran, frosted flakes, and cheerios), (weak) coffee and teas.
The front desk people were very nice and the management was helpful when we needed a refrigerator in the room. (I let them know about the fridge ahead of time).

Room Tip: There are 4 floors. Not every room comes with a fridge and microwave. Most of the king bed rooms ha...

The Hampton Inn is clean and comfortable, and close to the downtown area. The rooms are nice, and the bfast buffet is great. The best part about is the price. For the money, you can't beat it. The only downside to the property is that these are standard rooms - not suites.

We had the King handicap room for 2 nights and it was great. Perfect with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee machine. Nice and roomy, free wi-fi, free hot breakfast, friendly staff. The pool was nice and the small fitness room was okay (only 4 pieces and dumbbells.) Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Even though right at the airport, I never heard a plane.

We recently stayed at this property on a weekend getaway. We chose this property because they allowed pets. After a bit of dissatisfaction in the morning, we came back and checked in in the afternoon and was very warmly greeted by Geneton who started our stay on a very good note. I have gold status and assumed that because we had our pets with us that we would not be able to be upgraded. I was wrong, and we were given a very nice suite that was a blessing for our pets and us.
The room was very clean, in a good location, and we very much enjoyed it.
The hotel is close enough to the places we wanted to visit in Sarasota and overall, a very nice property.
While the breakfast was a standard Hampton breakfast, it was nice they had coffee in the lobby at all times.
I will stay at this property again.

Thank you so much for your review and the time you spent to share with us! As I mentioned in our off-line communication, we do our best to accommodate early arrivals and because of your feedback I was able to communicate with the new front desk team member a more enhanced way to exceed our guests expectations. He was very appreciative of your feedback, so thank you again for that.

With regards to Geneton, he is as always has been an outstanding guest service representative! He has been with us since our opening team opened the hotel in January of 2010. He very much appreciated your complements :)

We look forward to your return visit with ALL of your family members! woof-woof :)

My husband and I have had the opportunity to stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites Sarasota -Bradenton Airport several times over the past year. Each time the front desk personnel have been very polite, helpful and accommodating. The king bed suite is comfortable, clean, and large with a desk large enough for two people to put a laptop and use the FREE wifi provided. The free continental breakfast, free coffee and hot tea in the lobby through out the day and night, along with complimentary snacks in the evening are some of the other reasons we continue to choose this hotel. The refrigerator, microwave, and small coffee maker were beneficial also. Although it was very close to the airport we have never heard any noise of airplanes. We highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Sarasota.

Room Tip: I think the suites are worth the extra money although the standard rooms are good also.
