“Good Enough not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We needed a home base hotel while visiting family and this was an economical choice since we seldom use budget hotels however this is a newer place so it's not dirty. I did have an issue with too much "cleaning solution/febreeze" odor so we had to open the windows just to get it out, but it wasn't that bad so we continued to stay. The temperature controls of the room were horrible and we found ourselves constantly adjusting for too-cold or too-warm, and it was noisy at night, especially unfortunate for the people nearest the window with the cooling system blowing on them all night. This location offers ONLY ONE washer and it's SMALL--and ONE dryer (average sized) so be prepared to wash out your beach clothes at midnight because you are waiting on others. The water pressure was poor and the water never really got hot enough but was OK. The mini fridge was about 3 feet tall and there was a tiny microwave in the room, with an ironing board and iron also if necessary. There were luggage holders as well to set our bags on during our stay. The place was very clean and the bathrooms were large. Overall, our stay was good. We probably would not stay here again just because of the laundry situation. They had a nice little pool and hot tub in the back of the hotel and parking was easy. The neighborhood is a good suburb within walking distance of a Walgreens and only about a mile away from a grocery store. Traffic on the nearby road was hard to navigate but that's not the hotel's problem. It is a good hotel and pretty clean, however, the cleaning solution smell was enough for me not to be completely satisfied with our stay. People at the front desk were very nice. It was good enough.

Room Tip: Top floor room (3rd floor) room 302 is the first one the cleaning staff get to in the morning, which...

Great value for the money. We stayed here for seven nights. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. The pool was wonderful for night swimming.
The staff was personable and helpful...especially Judy. We checked in around 11:00pm After a 15 hour drive,and she greeted us with a warm smile and treated us as if we were family.
The breakfast was very good, I especially enjoyed the pancake maker.
The property was near a Publix , Costco , restaurants,shopping, and most importantly,not far from the fabulous Siesta Key and Tamiami Trail..
Loved our stay here and would recommend this hotel without reserve. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor near the exit. This was helpful when loading the car for the beach.

I stayed here for 6 days with a son's baseball team. The room had two double beds and a pullout sofa. Everything was spotless. Morning breakfast was more than ample. Large breakfast room.
Outdoor pool with hot tub was a hit with the boys and the parents alike. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful (especially Ms. Judy). Location is excellent for beach visits.
Only comment for improvement....elevators REALLY SLOW!! (pretty minor point however...)

Room Tip: View facing West looks across a small lake and is rather pretty.

In Sarasota for one night and wisely chose this hotel. It was in a good location and was very clean and well maintained. The staff was outstanding going out of their way to greet us even though they were quite busy. We also requested a late check-out so we could go over to Siesta Key for a couple of hours on the morning of checkout. They were glad to do this for us. The bed was super comfortable and the room was spacious. We will definitely use this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor above the pool. No noise - far enough away from the main roadway so that r...

Have stayed in a lot of Comfort Inn & Suites and all have been great. By far this was the greatest of them all. From check in to check out we were very pleased. Breakfast was great and the pool was busy but enjoyable. Hotel was very quiet considering it seemed full. Close enough to Siesta Key beach(7 miles) and restaurants it is a perfect central location. Will stay here again on our next trip to Sarasota. The staff was great and gave us good recommendations for places to eat. We would recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

Room Tip: Our room was large and sunny. We had 4 adults and 1 child and our room was roomy enough for everyone...

A large group of us stayed here for a wedding nearby and the staff was great!! So accommodating, friendly, and attentive! This hotel is new, clean, and comfortable! It is centrally located and includes breakfast! Couldn't ask for more!! The staff made our stay exceptional, we would (and do!) recommend to all our friends and family!!
