“Good family hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

On check-in the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful in recommending local eateries and things to see. The rooms were clean and large, breakfast and dinner were good with wine and beer included. This hotel can save a traveling family money due to the provided meals.

Disappointing in many ways. Small double beds that were old and worn out. Rooms and hallways show age, worn out. Did not smell good. No parking near rooms. Best part was the breakfast and the computers in the lobby

This was a very nice hotel and priced right. We had a 1 bedroom suite which made it ideal for a longer stay. It is located near everything (except the beach, which was not important to us): downtown Sarasota, the Ed Smith ballpark, I-75, etc. The room was very clean and quiet. We took full advantage of the breakfast and evening reception (dinner). The food was good and the complimentary wind and beer was a nice touch. We would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

ROOM: We stayed here for five nights in a two-bedded room on the ground floor. The room was reasonably spacious with a bathroom in which everything worked well. While well maintained, the property is showing signs of wear and could use refurbishing soon. We occasionally heard a child's footsteps from the unit above us, but it was muted. Housekeeping was efficient. Kitchen was equipped down to utensils and dishes though I wouldn't try to prepare a meal from scratch with what was available.
CHECK-IN: Quickly accomplished. Front desk staff on this and subsequent occasions were pleasant and professional.
GROUNDS: There is an outdoor pool in the central area with adequate room on the deck for comfortable recliners. The towels provided there are smaller than the bath towels in the room. Parking spaces are scattered around the complex; when we returned after 11:00 in the evening, the only open spaces were in the largest lot, which was furthest from the wing where our room was located. Not a problem for us but might be a consideration for others; if so, ask for a room nearest the large lot.
MEALS: Breakfast was more than adequate. The food itself is what one usually gets at hotels that provide meals and a good way to start the day. Being in Florida, the hotel's fruit compote was fresh. The evening meal provided Monday through Thursday was a nice extra. A typical menu was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and salad (mixed greens rather than just iceberg or Romaine). The wine served was surprisingly good.
SURROUNDINGS: This hotel is located on Fruitville Road. Driving less than three miles west on this road takes you to the downtown area. Since we were in town to attend performances at the opera house located downtown, this was a convenient place to be. There are a drugstore and a Publix supermarket within two blocks.

Room Tip: For quiet from traffic, ask for a room away from Fruitville Road. For quiet from pool users, ask for...

It was our honeymoon and I was very excited to stay here. Unfortunately with the death of my husbands son in feb a honeymoon turned into a much needed Vacation. I had forgotten the passport and the staff was very nice about it, however our room was not ready at 5:30 pm and the bathtub was clogged. Other than that it was Great. Thank yoU

Very comfortable, clean & friendly! Great complimentary breakfast in a large dining room with many areas to sit and relax as well as meet other guests. My bed afforded me a down quilted blanket which I enjoy as well as great pillows. This facility is a close commute to Siesta Key beach as well as downtown Sarasota which offers a large selection of restaurants of many types and unique shops. Homewood Suites is a great choice for accommodations and I will certainly choose them while vacationing in the future.

We booked this reservation in advance, when we arrived to check into our $200 "suite" with my husband and 2 children (9 and 11), we were very impressed with the outside and lobby, looked very nice. We were early and couldn't get into our room yet but they offered to let the kids change into bathing suits to swim. When we were finally able to check in our keys wouldn't work to our room, went and had them re-keyed, twice, and finally the manager came and checked them and gave us new keys that finally worked. As I stated this was supposed to be a suite with a kitchenette. It was so small, 2 double beds (not queen) with a couch and a table and kitchenette crammed all into one small hotel room that normally would have just 2 beds. There was literally no room to move around, only one person could walk around at a time, we had to keep sitting on furniture to get out of the way, we couldn't have all of our suitcases open at the same time either. The bathroom area was set up where the toilet and tub were in one room and vanity and mirror outside the door, so there was nowhere for privacy while dressing except for crammed in with the toilet. As far as cleaniless, I guess it was fine, it was definitely older, needed updates. We didn't need the kitchenette so no idea if any of that worked, The beds were super hard and uncomfortable. The bedding wasn't the nice stuff that a lot of hotels have now, which I always look for in the pictures, so I know that the pictures they show online are not the rooms, or at least not the one we have. The area around wasn't the best either. We will not return.
