“Ok hotel Great value for your money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Stayed and this hotel twice in the past year. I found it to be an average hotel, clean with complimentary breakfast. Staff courteous and excellent prices. I actually stayed at several hotels in the sarasota area ( 4 different ones) and for the money you will spend, it's probably the best deal in town! I have booked again for the end of he month.

Tracy and JT customer service was phenomenal, soon as i entered the building JT greeted me with a big hello and had a smile that lit up the room on my way to checking out she remained the same. Her customer service was so pleasant i had to tell i must rate her.Great employees! The pool was green instead of blue that was another down fall. If they fix those minor problems soon the hotel would be great!

On behalf of my family: William, Emma, Tootoo, and myself, Stacie, i would like to give thanks and praise for Ms. Janet. She is most certainly a pleasure and a huge blessing. Please take this compliment into consideration during her next review with your company.
Thank you and GOD bless you.
Sincerely,
The Smiths from Auburndale

I really enjoyed my stay at sleep Inn. I came in from new jersey and all i wanted was a comfy bed for a few days, but i got so much more!!! Not only was the bed comfy but It was very clean, the staff was very very friendly and they called me by my name when they saw me pass in the hall way. (Debbie and J.T.), who must have been the sweetest people i have ever met, they also made sure i had everything i needed and went the extra mile for me! They had an awesome breakfast that Janice hustled to keep up with all the quest and did it very well and kept it very clean n full of food! The pool was clean and I loved the long hours it was open to swim. I am looking to be back within the next two months, and there will be no question where I will be staying! See you soon Sleep Inn!

A short last minute trip home to see Mom who is ill, we needed to find a place close to the house, which would not break our budget. I searched Internet, cross-compared hotels, and read the reviews closely. There are a number of higher-end hotels nearby but this GEM is everything that they are: great decor, very clean, excellent customer service, great breakfast (free) and very good coffee; Internet, AND the best is the high-end bed and great pillows! This GEM will WOW you too, especially the price! It's at the end of the street, with several other hotels across from airport, but it was quiet, quiet, quiet. We will definitely stay here again any time we visit back home. What a GEM!!!

Room Tip: Three story...we really like top floor to minimize any foot traffic above us. It is well worth askin...

Had a nice room and really enjoyed our three day stay. Can't say enough good about the staff. From the front desk (JT- who answered my many questions cheerfully) to maintenance, housekeeping and breakfast attendant (Janet - who kept breakfast room neat and supplied, always with a smile), everyone was so nice and helpful. Have never been treated so well by hotel employees. Although close to airport, was very quiet. Location to Ringley's couldn't have been better.

Just finished 2 nights at the Sleep Inn Sarasota. Room was clean and the staff was nice and helpful. Janet, in the breakfast room, made for a nice morning by her great attitude and service. We would have given this more stars for the money, but the standard king room and bathroom are very small, and the AC a little noisy. Might be OK for 1 person, but 2 is a crowd. The pool area is also very small with only a few chairs, but we weren't there for that.

Room Tip: Get a suite if room size is important to you.
