Courtyard Sarasota Bradenton Airport
Ranked #25 of 50 Hotels in Sarasota
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This hotel was very nice and the employees were even nicer! The location is close to many restaurants and other attractions as well as the airport. The hotel will even drive you to 5 different restaurants for dinner! Ankur at the front desk kept encouraging us to have them drive us to dinner so we agreed and Joyce our shuttle driver took us right away. When we called to be picked up she was there immediately! The rooms are nice the beds were comfortable, there isn't a micro but there is one downstairs. Unfortunately we were next to the ice machine and elevator and it was quite noisy. When I mentioned this to Ankur the next day he wanted to move us but we were checking out. We will definitely stay there again, it's a quite area and extremely friendly people.

Room Tip: Don't get a room next to the elevator & ice machine.

I have stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions, several years apart. I appreciate the easy access to the airport, Ringling Estate, & downtown. It is a much more affordable option then the downtown hotels yet offers very nice accommodations with easy parking and a nice restaurant on site for light dinners and a healthy breakfast. Rooms are clean and the staff are very nice. I take my walks in the morning around the Ringling Estate grounds right across the main road by the hotel (no fees if you are just walking the grounds and not touring the buildings). The views across the bay are spectacular and well with the effort. The location really is excellent if you have a car and can do the 5-10 minute drive into downtown. It is an older property but the lobby is updated like most of the Courtyards and the rooms are clean. Ask for a room in the back by the pool to isolate the noise from the road alongside the property. There is some air traffic since we're right next to the airport but it is really not too bad since the flights are limited.

I stayed with my husband and 3 kids at this newly renovated hotel. The beds and sofa were comfortable and perfect for a family of 5. Many stores and restaurants walking distance. We saw, from our room, a crocodile at the adjacent small lake and the kids were excited. I highly recommend this place.

definitely many more pros than cons, but we had a couple of "niggles" during our stay.
1. our room was right over the outdoor bistro area, and we were not fond of the music playing
until quite late.
2. the bathroom vanity sink had the plug disabled so you could not run (and keep) water in the sink.
3. the TV channels on the TV bore no resemblance to the actual channels. This, I believe, has now been corrected.
4. we like to stream our own videos when we are in hotel rooms, as most offerings on TV are pretty awful these days. the Marriott provider has disabled the ability to do this. No other hotel chain we have stayed in has done this. So, don't stay here if you want to use the TV as a
computer screen, or stream from the web.

Room Tip: if you don't like music outside your window, ask for a room away from the outdoor firepit/bistro...

Thanks so much for taking the time to fill out a review. If you have a moment I would like to speak with you regarding your stay. We strive to exceed all of our guest’s expectations and I believe that this hotel was not for our property as we do not have an outdoor bistro. We do have a courtyard area for sitting and lounging but the music in this area is no different from the rest of the hotel.

If you have a moment and you could contact me that would be greatly appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Michael Ridgewell

I stay at several Mariotts and found this one better than most. Clean, and for some reason the beds were firmer than most. I like firmer beds. Other thing that stood out was that the AC was quiet and worked well.

We were looking for a reasonable place to stay when watching our granddaughter play soccer at IMG Academy. Right opposite airport entrance so if you fly in its real close. Well maintained. A/C unites relatively quiet. High quality bedding with a good mattress. Slept well. Overall room decor nothing to write home about but clean.Service is attentive. Convenient parking with lots of signs to remind you to lock your doors and take valuables out.
