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... More

The newer Residence Inns, in general, have far less room in the living and bedroom areas and far less work space than the originally built ones. Glad to see that this one is different from the others. In my one bedroom suite, there was plenty of room to move around the Kitchen / Living room area as well as the... More

Our stay was very enjoyable and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the tacos & pepsi Monday evening which was delicious and free. We would also recommend the Barnum & Bailey museum which is close by. There is a cost but it was informative and interesting how the circus would go place to place each day. Exciting... More

Nice place, quiet. Sofa bed was very uncomfortable with the springs felt all night. Breakfast spread was good, eggs, pancakes, cereals, etc. Enough space in the dining room to accommodate small groups of people. Friendly staff.

I have tried them all and this in is best. Exactly what you expect. Very friendly staff, easy parking, comfortable beds. Breakfast is hot and the evening reception changes nightly. It is nice to have a glass of wine without venturing out in the evening.

We stayed for four nights in July 2016. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a one bedroom suite that was smaller in comparison to the many other Residence Inn properties I've stayed at. The property overall is very dated and in need of updating, but still a decent property.

We've stayed in Residence Inns all over the country. We were very surprised to see the number of pets we encountered. The desk staff assured us all Residence Inns are pet friendly. We've never seen a pet before. This is very important because my wife is very allergic to pet hair and dandruff. We'll check before we stay in a... More

This is a very good choice to stay in Sarasota. The rooms are new and clean, although, not as spacious as some other Residence Inn's. Properties owned by the Residence Inn can really vary. Some need complete remodels, while others will WOW you. The Sarasota Residence Inn is somewhere in the middle. It is comfortable and conveniently located to University... More
