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.

Staff is so friendly and helpful. But you can hear the conversation of people in the room next door. And the bed was so hard that I was sore this morning. I have stayed at the Courtyard next door and the beds were much better. I'm not sure that I would ever stay here again. Three stars is only because... More

I wanted to apologize once again, as I know you gave us your feedback at checkout. I'm so sorry you found the mattress uncomfortable and that you could hear the guest next door. Getting a good night's rest is so important! We will receive new mattresses fall of 2017 when we are slated to receive our next renovation. Our last... More

We had a great experience at this property. The staff were friendly and professional. The room was clean and spacious. Most importantly, the property was quiet, even during "peak season." Hotel was quite pricey, but our stay was during high season, and the rates were comparable to other properties. Plenty of free parking and there is relatively easy access to... More
