Stopped for one night on our way to Ft. Myers Beach. Room was clean, no noise and a great complimentary breakfast.

The amenities are, for the most part, what you'd expect at any Comfort Inn.
The staff truly makes this better than average . . . however, I rated this 'average' due to: 1) Being able to easily hear noise through the walls, 2) 'Bathroom' sink is in the walkway into the room - not seperate (only commode and shower are together) 3) The flimsy kind of furniture in the room - table was wobbly 4) A/C noise was louder than I'd like.

On the plus side - 1) the bed was comfortable and clean 2)the room had a refridgerator and microwave.

The breakfast was the standard for Comfort Inn - though, they ran out of coffee during breakfast (with nothing prepared as a back-up). Please note, do not be even 2 minutes past the breakfast cutoff time . . . as I saw a couple who were turned-away at 10:02 one morning. The entire area was very clean.

Two newspapers - USA Today and The Wall Street Journal are provided free-of-chagre - Thank you!

This inn is not inexpensive - but, it is a fair value. I would return.

On our 10 day journey, Your Staff, Hotel and Value was our top hotel (!!)
Great Service, perfect location, cool employees. It even topped an expensive Resort in Orlando, You're outstanding and we love to plan another stay with You on our next vacation!

I had to send my forgotten cellphone to Europe. Staff helped to be picked-up by FEDEX and everybody helped me!

Thank You guys and keep smiling!

Me and my wife stayed there to visit some beaches like Clearwater, Venice and Sarasota.
The beaches are wonderfull, and the hotel is ok. Not so clean as we wanted, but rooms with a good area, a nice continental breakfast, wi-fi internet and free parking. The elevator was out working very well, so I had to use the stairs, but that was only one floor, so no problem. Very nice restaurants on a 15 minutes car ride at St.Armands circle.

Whether glowing or not, we value all our guests' opinions. Siesta Key Beach is barely 4 miles west of the hotel, and is the Number 1 rated beach 2011 in the US. It is truly stunning.
We would rather everyone loved the hotel as much as the beach and we do all we can. So to keep up with all our guests' expectations, we have now recruited a new executive housekeeper who is superb, and introduced a brand new Hot Breakfast to replace the Continental. All our improvements are being exceptionally well received.

This was just right. Good location, as clean as you can possibly expect this level of hotel to be, good service, quiet, pool w/ jacuzzi, and the whole 3rd floor is smoke free. And the price was WAAAY better than our other options. Oh yeah, and good (free) breakfast too! I asked for a mini fridge in my room, and got one. Plus, I called and asked if I could check in earlier than their 1:00 check-in and they said, "no problem." I can see why they have so many accolades for great service.

We try really hard to provide the best value for money we can. We will always do whatever we possibly can for our guests. Your comfort and convenience is our top priority. All rooms have a fridge and microwave. You're going to love the new hot breakfast even more than our curent buffet.

We normally take our holidays in Europe, but came to Florida this year. Our chidren wanted some beach time after the Orlando theme parks. We had booked this Comfort Inn hotel through a travel agent and were really pleased.
The staff are all so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Gave us lots of advce on where to go and eat. The best bit is the beach is just a few minutes drive down the road.
Hotel is clean, good free breakfast and it was good value.

We love to see our international guests enjoying time by the beach in Sarasota. Siesta Key beach is just a few minutes West of the hotel. I'm pleased our staff were able to suggest some great places to eat. There are even have five restaurants within walking distance. Thank you for your comments.

It looked OK until we found the bathroom was not really clean, the fridge was broken and noisy and even after we asked to have it removed, it was not done until we absolutely insisted 12 hrs. later.The place was noisy, road noise and repair noise (in the middle of the night) Good breakfast but overall, we would never stay in another Comfort Inn again!

I am so sorry we let you down! I can't imagine what went wrong. The hotel has a Gold Award through Comfort Inns International - partly for its bathroom cleanliness. The staff are proud to be noted for their attentiveness and care. If you have a problem they usually make sure it's fixed immediately. Please come back and give us the chance to show you how we normally look after our guests.
