Nice clean rooms. Wi-Fi was easily available and room had a mini fridge. The Inn is a way off the freeway so it is a little inconvenient for someone who wants a quick room. There were a few restaurants close by and they do serve a pretty good continental breakfast.

The motel is well situated for all the local sights and easy to find. It was great to be able to walk to the Ringling Museum. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, suggesting places to visit, shop and eat.
We enjoyed the breakfast . The motel was excellent value for money .

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back away from the road.

Very well maintained, clean and quiet. Wonderful staff! We forgot that we had left clothing in the dresser
drawers (something we've never done) and we received a call from the owner who kept everything in safe
storage until we returned to the area traveling back north. We have stayed at this location twice now and
have found it to be the best value in Sarasota for the price.
Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

This hotel had a small town, family feel. Clean and comfortable. Good value for the price. It is a little older, but they are keeping it up. Nice bagel, muffin, cereal, juice, coffee, and tea breakfast.

This motel was reasonably priced in the high season (February). The rooms are clean and quiet with a continental breakfast. Manager was helpful about finding local sights. The motel is walking distance to the Ringling Museum complex and only 15 minutes by car to downtown Sarasota sights. Also very near the airport. A good value.

Room Tip: The motel is two stories with no elevator. If you have a problem with stairs, get a first floor roo...

After arriving late afternoon in Sarasota and it being 'in season' I needed value along with clean and comfortable and so I turned to a place I had stayed 12 years before, that being the Knights Inn. There is a sense of it being more of a local, homey and 'real' place which is important as it makes one feel safe, cared about and comfortable.


The owners/hosts are friendly, accommodating, and have a sense of humor and ready smile that is welcome when one is in town. The grounds were kept clean and maintained, and the rooms were roomy, clean and everything worked.

Thank you both for your 'Inn' and all that you do and it was good to revisit. I will stay with you again when I come back to town.

Room Tip: I would stay on the second floor as I always find this is somewhat quieter. It is on US41 and it i...
