Just got back from a 2 night stay at the Hampton Inn in Sarasota for a labor day weekend getaway. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this hotel based on my experience. First the pros: location was good, (close to I-75 & restaurants), the rooms & lobby seemed clean (did not see the pool area). The breakfast was ok. Everything was mostly frozen and pre-packaged, but that was expected. Now unto the not so good: the bathroom had a very strong urine scent. It was quite disgusting if I am honest. This is the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed at. The walls and doors must be paper thin. I could hear every single word of our neighbors conversations and whenever someone flushed the toilet in the next room. But the worst thing of all was a very unpleasant experience with an employee. I wish I had seen his name tag. My friend was in the lobby with his son who has a medical condition which requires him to wear a helmet 23 hours a day. This male employee walked by us and said "That's what you get when you play rugby". I was completely flabbergasted by his lack of empathy and rudeness towards guests at his place of employment. I would rather sleep under a bridge than stay at this hotel again.
