Stayed for 6 nights. The coffee and hot water pots in lobby were hot all day every day and night.
Food was good each morning. Judith and another lady made excellent breakfast each morning and kept the food stocked and the place clean. They never ran out of waffle batter or toppings the whole week.
The evening food receptionist, Jennifer, was very kind and competent. The kids loved her so much they left notes for her when we left. Tuesday we had taco/burrito night and Wednesday BBQ night. Usually this means hot dogs, but here they served bratwurst and grilled chicken sandwiches. Drinks included red/white wine, draft beer, and soft drinks.
This was probably the cleanest Residence Inn I have stayed at. We noticed they allowed pets and worried that the floors would be filthy. That was not the case, our socks were clean even after walking in the hallways. I appreciate their attention to keeping the floors clean. The cleaning staff were polite and courteous, and the front desk was helpful and competent. Our neighbor had a dog, but we never heard it. We were on the ground floor but rarely heard people upstairs.
The pool was clean and cool and closed promptly at 9pm each night. The basketball court was fun. Only the hot tub wasn't very hot and the staff told me they were waiting for approval to replace the heating element. Even so, it was warmer than the pool and was usable.
I would certainly stay here again, as it was walking distance to the USF campus, and just down the street from the Ringling Museum. The front desk attendant Brianna gave us a discount card for the museum, and this was a pleasant surprise. Easy to drive to airport or downtown Sarasota and beaches.
