“Flawless stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This was my first Comfort Inn stay and it was just like being at home! When I arrived, check-in was fairly easy and straight forward, had to switch a room, but that was easy too. The room itself was VERY NICE for this class of hotel. Super clean, quiet, good housekeeping, HUGE flat screen TV, comfy bed, and delish breakfast. I was expecting limited options, but there were at least 4 hot options--biscuits, eggs (sometimes, cheese eggs), sausages, bacon, etc....yogurt, cereal, boiled eggs, toast, waffles, etc. I did not notice it was crowded at all, I would usually go early and bring my food up to my room.

The location is excellent. The Walgreens is like literally around the corner, you can walk there, and a very nice Publix across the street for any goodies, etc. The room has a fridge and microwave so you should definitely make use of them. Chick Fil A, gas stations, everything near by.

I can't say anything more about the quietness of the place, and yes, it is like 4 miles from Siesta Key, a very quick, straightforward drive to the beach. Oh, and check out Goodfellas Wine and Pizza on Clark for a bottle of wine large pizza special! You can eat half, save half in fridge for next day!

It was really like being at home. Please don't change!

I stayed for the first time at this Comfort Suites. I am disabled and travel with a service dog. From the first moment we set foot into Comfort Suites I felt it was the best place for me. The staff made my stay very special. I was visiting my family here and it was the first time we stayed at this hotel. Whenever I come back this where we will stay. Thank you staff of Comfort Suites!

I have to say, I liked this hotel so much that I wish I had a reason to go back to Sarasota. If you need to stay anywhere in the area, just stay here. The place is new, the people are really friendly. It has high ceilings and nice furnishings. the beds are very comfortable, and its new and fresh. Me and my family were not familiar with the area, but we found the hotel was really convenient to most anything, we needed a pharmacy and Walgreens was right next door and there were several good choices of restaurants nearby, even a mini-golf/ice cream place (Evie's), which we all played and had a great time. Anyway, the hotel is great - it has a pool, based on what I saw in the area, this is easily the best place to stay.

This hotel just opened - brand new! Everything was perfect, clean, and very comfortable and the staff were great. It is a block off the main street so very quiet. The AC unit was very quiet and very functional (I could make it do what I wanted, easily). A huge breakfast area, nicely laid out and well attended with smiles and a great variety of items. Service was fantastic. Definitely recommend it to anyone in the area. When checking out, and without being asked, the counter clerk even told us about some road paving in the area and how to best get around it without having to cross rush hour traffic. And the morning paper was delivered to the room early.

My husband and I arrived in Sarasota during Spring Break. It was the only night of our 6-day vacation we had not booked a room. The Sarasota Visitor Center was diligent in helping us find a room and, the new Comfort Suites, having just opened 4 weeks before was not only the only hotel with availability but a great place to spend the night. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the price was quite reasonable.
Due to construction on the streets and roads adjacent to the hotel we quickly realized we would not be able to walk the 1/4 mile to the nearby restaurants as the pedestrian lights did not function and traffic was too heavy for 2 Babyboomers to try to make a dash, so we walked back to our car and drove over. And that was our only negative experience.

We were disappointed that the only place where we could find a room for two nights was at this new hotel but as it would give us the opportunity to visit Sarasota we took it. Little did we know beforehand what a find it would be. Just off I-75, a straight run to Siesta Key. and easy access to wherever we wanted to go -- our room was terrific, the staff were all very friendly and ready to attend to our needs, and the hot breakfast included with our room was outstanding. As it was high season we found the traffic to Siesta Key so congested we gave up but a recommendation by one of the desk clerks saved the day by suggesting the beach on Lido Key which was much easier to access with the directions they gave us. In two days we were able to visit the Ringling grounds, the waterfront around the Bay, the beaches of Lido Key and Siesta Key, explore the shops on St. Armand's Circle, watch our ice cream treats being made at SubZero, and..... all thanks to the help the staff gave us. It was our first visit to Sarasota but it certainly won't be our last and the same holds true for this terrific hotel. They go out of their way to make one's stay perfect.

As we were checking out we were asked how we enjoyed our stay. My wife said: "it was perfect".
This is a newer hotel which is a big plus. It's well designed. We had a west facing room on the 3rd floor. So we had nice sun in the afternoon and evening and none in the am. The rooms are nicely outfitted and very clean. Nice bedding. Very quiet. LED TV's with Direct TV, etc.
The heated pool is small but adequate. The hot tub is nice ... not overly hot. Both get good sun for most of the day and evening since they are west facing.
The breakfast was fairly typical. A nice touch are the Grab N Go bags to take with you if you are in a hurry and can't stay for breakfast.
Overall a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: I'd ask for a room looking out to the west. Remember the Grab N Go Bag in case you don't h...
