I spent four nights last week at the Sarasota Courtyard near the airport. The location was great, I had a class at New College of Florida, just a short drive away. The hotel does offer a shuttle too if you are a guest and need to go within a 5 mile radius. Hotel staff were very friendly, room was clean, and relatively quiet being near the airport. Stayed on the 3rd floor. Bistro on the first floor offers breakfast, had a great breakfast sandwich to go. Starbucks coffee too. They offer light dinner fare, but did not try. Ample parking, short drive to shopping and restaurants.
