“Best stay ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

This hotel and our room was absolutely way more than my friends and I had ever expected it to be. First off, we stayed in their junior suite which was a very spacious room with a JACUZZI!!! Well, we were all excited about that. The place was sooo clean. There was never anything out of place or anything. I didn't catch one whiff of smoke at all. The whole thing was just more than we expected, even the breakfast. I would most deffinitely stay here again if I happen to be in the sarasota area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

We decided to get away to Sarasota for the weekend and didn't want to spend a ton of money on the hotel. The AmericInn fit all the criteria we were looking for and then some. The lady at the front desk when we checked in was a wealth of knowledge about the area and pointed us in the direction of a bunch of cool places. Plus the proximity of the hotel to a few restaurants (Trader Vic's was a great choice for dinner and the live music was a highlight) and the nightclub next door was great because we didn't feel like driving any more. The room was very nice and the bed very comfortable and the big flat screen tv was a plus. All in all, a great place to stay!

Stayed this weekend with family. Staff was great. Location good but could use better outside signage. Breakfast was better than expected. So many choices. Hotel was very clean. One suggestion could use upgraded flat screens. We will come again we felt very welcome.

Were given a 2x double queen bed room over looking car park. we thought we would try the hotel because of positive reviews, wish we hadnt

postives:
-cheap
-all staff welcoming and friendly
-lovely heated swimming pool and hot tub
-clean
-free parking
-perkins next door
-free internet
-free breakfast although limited

negatives:
-muggy smoking smell to entire hotel, smells like a mens club, ruined our stay as a non smoking family to have to constantly breath this smell, our room was okay once air con was on, i have never smelled a hotel like this even considering our floor was all nonsmoking yet the smell was so strong it was as if someone was smoking right next to me
-not good for families or kids
-rooms dated need renovating, staff do keep it as clean as they can but the place is a let down and needs modernising

i strongly suggest if you have to stay here to upgrade to their pure rooms because the rest of the hotel smells smokey and is unbearable unless your a smoker yourself, however ou will still have to put up with it throughout the rest of the hotel

would i stay here again? no, pay a little more and stay somewhere nicer and fresher

thankyou

Thank you for taking the time to review the AmericInn Hotel & Suites in Sarasota. I am sorry to hear your stay was not as expected. I am not sure how the hotel smelled smoky as we only have seven smoking rooms in the entire hotel. And the smoking rooms a have air purifiers in them to help suck the smoke and eliminate the smell. Please make sure you let us know if ever there is a problem so we can correct it for you. We are in the process of updating the rooms now including painting, new TVs and bath room updates. I hope that you will stay with us again so you can see how lovely the hotel is.

Sincerely,

AmericInn Management & Staff

I had a great stay at the Inn -- the manager and her warm and helpful staff made my visit enjoyable and comfortable. Every evening when I left my Mother's assisted living facility, I looked forward to going to my room, relaxing and enjoying some TV [I left my computer at home].

Thanks for the wonderful breakfast and coffee each morning; it made me feel spoiled! I look forward to my next visit in room #112 -- it was perfect in every way!

We stayed at the AmercInn for more than a week, We were very satisfied with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. Breakfast is a good bargain as it is included in the price: it carries all the cold breakfast staples PLUS the hot buffet which with a self-help waffle machine. This is a plus altogether. The only issue which they musy correct is that the address lists Fruitville road when is fact it is off such avenue and within a circle called Commerce Drive. Also, there is not clear sign on the road dircting you to the hotel. Once you find it it is really worth it.
