“Modest but extremely affordable”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Very modest no frills motel but very inexpensive and clean. Continental breakfast of toast, bagels, cereal and fruit which we ate by the pool. Owners extremely nice and friendly.
great location just down the road from the Ringling Museum.

The owners are really nice and helpfull.Free wifi,Clean room but hard beds.The continental breakfast was the best we had this time in the USA. If we go to Sarasota again we stay at Knights Inn.

Room Tip: Our room was at backside and we did not hear the US 4.

The owners were wonderful. They went out of their way to be accomodating to our needs. It was very appreciated. The room was clean and the continental breakfast offered a nice variety. Having free wifi was a bonus. We will definitely stay here again. It is very close to the airport and the perfect location for our first and last night of our vacation on Siesta Key.

Our stay was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The owner and staff were very helpfull and pleasant. The rates are very acceptable and affordable with a good continental breakfast. We are hoping to return to the Sarasota area in the future and we will stay here again. The pool looked inviting but we did not have the time.

Room Tip: We had two rooms on this trip and both were excellent!!!!!

This is one of those old style hotels that is starting to look tired. Fundamentally there is nothing wrong with it depending on ones standards. There wasn't a safe and the bed linen wasn't so nice but only real gripe was coffee stains on bedside cabinet. Mr Patel and his family were all very pleasant though. It's located right by the John Ringling musuem and is about 10 min drive from downtown Sarasota. The local beaches are stunning and it's a beautiful part of Florida to visit.

Stayed in the Knights Inn for one day on a trip to St. Petersburg. Very good located near the city centre of Sarasota. Parking lots in front of the rooms, bagels for breakfast and nice pool for chillout. Friendly and very helpful staff! Recommend this Inn if you are looking for a good value Inn near Sarasota to stay for a few nights.
