“Great place for travelers on a budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This hotel is extremely plain but very clean. Older appliances in 1 BR suite. Staff is AMAZING., Helpful, prompt, friendly. They really try to make your stay the best it can be and clearly care about their customers. This is a great place to stay if you are traveling on a budget and want to save $ by doing some cooking yourself. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Tell the staff what you want - they will absolutely try to please.

This is an older motel. The room was very clean, well lighted and the beds were comfortable. There is a complete furnished kitchen and a living area. The bedroom is in a separate room. It is close to excellent restaurants, the Ringling complex, downtown Sarasota and the airport. It was an excellent value.

Don't pass this hotel up! It is immaculate with nice kitchenette suites a lovely housekeeper that works 7 days a week to ensure the property is clean and gracious hosts too. The service I received was better than some 4 star resorts. I am so thankful I found this property on TripAdvisor, and even more thankful that I stayed there! Thank you so much for the great room an wonderful service!

My wife and I stayed one night for a wedding. Initially, we had my doubts but the place and the staff proved to be decent. The room we stayed in needs some updating, but the bed was comfortable and clean. The other amenities were basic (the cable was barely visible), but we didn't occupy the room very long. This place is good for long-term family vacation stays.

Room Tip: There are no stores within walking distance open at night, so get what you need early.

We stayed at the Regency Inn & Suites during the month of June 2013. The rooms were dated and the location was not is the "nicest" part of Sarasota but the suite was spacious with a kitchenette and living room separate from the bedroom... and was also very clean. You can't beat the price / value... Location is another matter.

Our family vacation this year included a trip to Sarasota and Clearwater, FL. We decided to stay at Regency Inn & Suites due to the low cost of a suite. We were very pleasantly surprised by the value we received. The staff was super friendly, patient, helpful, and kind. The suite was very clean, the linens were clean, there were no bugs, the fridge, stove, etc worked GREAT. Most importantly, the room was quiet at night and we were able to rest for our daily adventures in comfort and quiet. It was an excellent retreat for us.

For such a small price, I didn't expect much; I wasn't disappointed. They was some black mold around the ceiling vents, but other than that it was clean. The beds were comfortable enough, but there were some linens with some stains. I could have complained but as there were other linens in the room, we just used those instead. The front desk staff was quite wonderful and made checkout and check-in easy and hassle free. The only issue I had throughout the whole process was (quite literally) the person in the parking lot who tried to sell my son drugs. I don't fault the hotel for this, but with a downtown location, close to the airport, you can't expect that this would be out of the norm.
