“Sooo helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

Great location (safe.by airport. nothing closeby -walking). VERY Helpful staff. They made sure where I knew where I could find utensils (IN THE MICROWAVE). Rooms are not that big....but I like having Microwave. I like this hotel brand. They had some food for sale too which could be heated. very convenient. I was tired and did not want to drive.

We were here from July 16 to the 22nd for my son's baseball tournament. Great hotel. The people were so nice at the front desk, housekeeping & breakfast. The breakfast was great especially the waffles. The room was nice & large for myself & 3 kids. Having 2 tvs was great. If we are ever in the area again this is the place we will stay & will recommend this hotel to everyone.

The rooms were decent and clean although the furnitures and t.v.'s need some updating. The pool and whirlpool was great! Free hot breakfast was even better! Loved it!

This hotel (more like a motel) is ready for a major renovation. Let me give the pros and cons of this hotel:
Pros:
1) Close to the airport.
2) Good customer service
3) Free High Speed Internet Service
4) Free Breakfast (very basic...but free)
5) Clean Rooms

Cons:
1) The hotel needs to be renovate (towels, furniture, bedding beginning to show wear and tear and don't get me started on the tv)
2) There is only one clunky tv (that does not have a swivel console) in the suite...which make is difficult to watch the tv from the bed.
3) The hotel has a very odd smell had to use incense to make the room comfortable.
4) The heating/cooling system is not a wall mount it is a vent on the wall which makes it difficult to effectively cool/heat the entire room and bathroom area.

Please note: the hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and a workout room. I did not use the pool and the workout room was very basic.

With the numerous other choices in the area I would not choose this hotel on future stays in the Sarasota area.

As long as you have the right expectations you will not be disappointed by this property. Could not ask for more in terms of cleanlines, responsive staff, well organized and tended breakfast area, and a good location for getting to things in the Sarasota area. We stayed here as basecamp while going to some spring training games and it was ideal choice. Walmart and a supermarket just down the road and a short ride to downtown and the beaches for dinner and hanging out. Its not a beachfront resort which some reviewers seem to use as a benchmark; but they definitely do a much better than average job of delivering the "Springhill Suites" experience.

Positives:
We spent three nights here in a very nice suite that included a couch, chair and desk area somewhat separated from the bedroom. The cleaning staff was attentive and the wi-fi served us well. The rate was reasonable and the desk clerks were customer-oriented.
Breakfast was fine for our needs.

Negatives:
We were surprised that the room did not include a flat screen TV, only an old bulky TV on a stand between the bedroom and sitting area, narrowing the passage from one to another. Our room was closest to the busy road so we'd recommend you ask for a room away from the highway.
