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

This is a modern residence inn , beautifully done. It is conveniently near highways , shopping and airport, yet it is a quiet location. It is a half mile walking distance to the Ringling Museum , which is why we stayed there. But you definitely need a car to get anywhere as it is not near the beaches. The pool... More

One of the reasons I often don't enjoy hotels is because they can be so cramped. I really enjoyed the large space and fully equipped kitchen. It felt like I was staying in my own apartment. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Staff very friendly. Hotel clean yet very dated!! Food was cold, even at early visits to breakfast. Pool/basketball court close much to early, especially for vacationers. Location was ok and quiet, directly across from Sarasota/Bradenton airport.

The room & staff are good. The down turn is that breakfast was at best just so so for the price. Also the out side trash cans where not emptied on a daily bases. The poo can for you to clean up after your four leg friend was over flowing.
