A spacious and comfortable hotel close to I 75. Room was well equipped and staff very helpful. Only about 20 mins from the beaches and the other attractions of Sarasota. The Ellenton mall is about 15 mins North on the highway where you can pick up cheap cloths and other goods at the factory outlet mall.

One of the BEST Marriott properties we have ever stayed at! We average 200 nights a year at Marriott hotels. Rooms were generous in size. Front desk was more than friendly and helpful! Location is superb!

We stayed here after having to leave another Marriott property due to a poor experience with them. The check-in was a breeze, rooms were clean and smelled fresh and they had no insects living inside! Maybe this part of Florida doesn't have bugs that stay in hotel rooms??? Great experience for my family and they had just the right amount... More

We spent three nights with family for a wedding. It can be tricky trying to figure out where it is because of all the construction at the interstate interchange. The room was very nice and it kept cool despite the oppressive heat. One annoying feature that we noticed in other hotels is the bathroom door open out and hits the... More

I stayed on night here and it was great. Friendly staff, clean rooms, more than enough linens supplied, all together a great experience. This hotel is close to everything but quiet and in a safe neighborhood! I will be back!

Ventured out to drive to nearby beaches, which were great w many amenities. First, rooms were spacious & clean, with construction that keeps outdoor noise outdoors. Thank you for that.

Since my last visit this hotel suffers from a lack of attention to cleanliness, front desk service, noise levels of rowdy guests, and upkeep. For the 3rd night in a row I've spent over a half hour listening to a busy signal trying to get through to request a wake up call. The room is looking beat with peeling paint... More
