We were in Sarasota for my daughter's wedding New year's Eve. We got into town earlier than expected and did not have a reservation. From my phone, I booked AmericInn through hotels.com 10 minutes before walking through the door. This was no problem with the desk clerk who got us checked into a room immediately. My parents decided to extend their stay at this hotel because it was such a great value, and when we went to the front desk, not only were they able to stay in the same room, the agent looked up the rate we got from hotels.com and matched it. Wow. Unheard of.
The room is spacious and clean, nothing fancy but for the price I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. Complimentary breakfast was great. Conveniently located. Couldn't ask for more in a hotel, especially the customer service for the price.
