Nice place and great breakfast. However, the mattresses are terrible. We tossed and turned and woke up every morning stiff. They were unable to help us other than to give us a very thin mattress pad. We ended our stay early because of not being able to get a good night's rest We expected better.

This is an older Residence and our rooms had not been updated. It was clean and comfortable. We were there 2 nights and had 2 studios. There were quite a few people with dogs and we only heard a few barks. We wanted Chinese delivered and the front desk man recommended China King so we called and ordered dinner and...

Very polite staff throughout the hotel - everyone says hi to you, and seem to mean it. Rooms are large, well maintained and very comfortable (although I was able to hear a loud-snoring guy from the room next door one night). They have a complimentary 90 minute wine & beer reception, with supposedly light snacks, but which included half-pound hamburgers...

My wife and I very much enjoy vacationing in the Sarasota area once or twice each year. The airport is outstanding, one of the easiest in the U.S. to navigate. The car rentals are on the airport premises, allowing for easy exit and easy return. We try to book our room for the week at the Marriott Residence Inn &...

An unfortunate visit to Sarasota, but this place made it comfortable. Great staff to welcome you. A good location in Sarasota & quite spot even near the airport. All and all it was a good RI to stay at.

Polite , friendly staff that welcomed us and made us feel valued . Our suite was clean & nice . I just don't think they have a king bed in the whole hotel . We settled for queen but not a good sleep for us . Great breakfast and social in the evenings . Nice property .

We can not thank the entire staff of the Sarasota Bradenton Residence Inn for their outstanding efforts in making our week long stay extremely comfortable. All of their personnel including the GM, front desk, sales, food service and housekeeping staff were consistently accommodating and did everything to make us feel welcome on a daily basis. Our suite was large, well...

We've stayed at the Residence Inn on previous trips. It has improved over the past several years. The front-desk staff is very friendly and quite helpful. Even the housekeeping staff greets guests in the hallway. Our room was very quiet and clean, and the hotel was able to accommodate our early check-in. We will be back next time we're in...
