“My First Stay at the Quality Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I have never stayed in a Quality Inn before, however as they were the only ones left with rooms for spring break I had no choice. The only room available to us was a smoking room; and when they say smoking they mean smoke so strong it'll stick to your clothes all day. The staff was helpful in moving out of the room which also was home to a faulty air conditioner which woke all of us up in the night. We were disapointed by the removed hot tub and bone chilling pool. The building is in need of a serious make over. It is a good place if you are looking for a bargain but it did put sort of a damper on our spring break.

This was the first time, we'd ever stayed at a "Qualiity Inn"...and it will be the last.
The only place you'll find "Quality" at this Inn....is in the name intself !
The hallway had a large hole rubbed through the carpet....and the room was very shabby, including the micrwave propped vicariously on top of the fridge, and a hole in the wall where the sprinkler stuck through. Our room was next to the laundry room, and someone was doing laundry all night long it seemed. Maybe that's why there was no water pressure! We were happy to be able to open the window in our room to let in some much needed fresh air, until we noticed that the screen was hanging by one corner, ready to fall off at any moment. The only good thing I can say is that the bed was comfortable...and that the room was clean.
There was a small pool stuck in at the back of the motel....and that's where we parked. We were told to use the back door because it was closer to our room. This door was held open by a piece of wood pushed against it to keep it open.
We were so glad to leave this place....and will never ever stay at a Quality Inn again!

Room Tip: Don't be fooled by the name of the Inn....there is no quality here.

that makes your clothes stink all day and gives you acute bronchitis? Seriously... try running in the morning after sleeping here. Actually, don't - just trust me on this one. Do you like showers with no water pressure, and god knows what stains everywhere. Do you like a processed pre-packaged 'breakfast'? Then the QUALITY INN is for you. Anybody who thinks this place is a good place to stay or even okay needs to have their head checked. It needs to be condemned. If you can't afford someplace better, stay home.

This place is ratty inside. It's in serious need of a remodel. The beds are old, but not that bad. The shower had no water pressure. The wifi worked when it wanted to. The front desk was fast and friendly, and overall the room was clean, just rough. This place needs a serious makeover. It's old and showing it. Go to the sleep inn on university, less than a mile away. It's much nicer.

Really enjoyed out stay, found the staff quite helpful and friendly. For us a highlight was finding regular and decaf tea available in our room. Also pleased with the comfortable beds and additional space of the room. Wifi worked well where we were near the front desk.

Room Tip: Accessible room 2 queens provided extra space, easy access to breakfast area, good wifi.

I booked this hotel so my wife and I could get away for a couple of days. We got the hotel because it was the closest choice hotel to Siesta Key. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the building. It was like pulling into a Hotel. We were greeted at the desk promptly and the desk clerk personally checked to see that our room was ready. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was tremendous. The only improvement that would have made it more pleasurable was if the pool was heated. I will definitely return to this hotel any time we come that way and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

We rented multiple rooms the evening of 11/25/2014 for 2 nights but had to check out after the first night because it was so gross.

The first room we were shown smelled so strongly of cat pee that we gagged as we went in and had to go to another room. The second room smelled like someone had just washed their dog in the shower.

The third room smelled faintly of cleaning solution, which was fine, but the bathroom did not look clean and the beds had no comforters.

When we left the next morning two rooms had their doors open and renovation work was being done. They had left the beds in place and piled picture frames, old wall paper, and all sorts of construction debris right onto the beds! No wonder the rooms all were gross if that is the kind of care they were taking.

Lastly the furnishings were old and outdated. The TV was had a curved glass face and the traditional tube back. I will never go back and would not recommend it to anyone

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review on you recent to Quality Inn Sarasota. We are disappointed that we fell short of your expectations.Our property is going through some on going renovations at this time. Unfortunately during your stay we were in the process of removing the wall border vinyl and repainting the guest room walls.We are not a pet friendly hotel.We apologize for the piquant scent of our cleaning products. I have spoke to our vendor about the same.Furniture is in our upcoming project of renovations. We have replaced our guest room televisions and they are now equipped with 37" flat screen HDTV. I am sorry for the dissatisfaction you experienced.We look forward to your next stay with us.
