“Excellent Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We chose it because of the price and good reviews it had received and were not disappointed. Our room was a bit run down, but very clean and comfortable. The Keurig coffee maker and bottled water provided were a big plus. Breakfast was fresh. The owners who are always on the premises are friendly and helpful and responsive to requests. The biggest drawback was having to make an illegal U-turn to enter the drive from the other side of Route 41.

Stayed one quick night in this motel when going to the Warm Mineral Springs (did not want to stay out in the sticks as wanted to have some night life nearby, but were not willing to pay more than the possible minimum). So this one popped up with good reviews and very nice price.The service in this place was friendly, the location was good (right by the airport and withing 5 min drive from Downtown Sarasota), the room was of a nice size and METICULOUSLY cleaned, the walls in the room and bathroom are recently repaired/painted/refurbished, the bed was very comfortable, the furniture was not new but in a good condition and arrangement of the room in colors and styles was not irritating, everything useful was there in the room: a fridge, a microwave, an iron, a hair dryer, etc (in other words; everything, that you would regularly expect to find in a nice hotel, including complimentary bottled water). The location is not bad at all. The price for all this including a complimentary continental type breakfast was exceptionally good. BUT DO NOT expect to find for this price - a hilton! It is a motel, so the privacy is limited (the door is opening right outside, very thin walls) etc. The only concern was the smoke in the non-smoking rooms. We were offered 2 different rooms to try, and the difference was very small. But this is more the problem with the customers, than with the management. I remember one time we faced the same problem staying in Downtown Hilton in Boston, regardless my husband's H Honers membership, and the booked supposedly non-smoking room, as the hotel was sold out and there was nothing else to offer to us at 10pm when we arrived there. Here, at Knight Inn we turned on air condition and had to open the door for an hour or so and after that it was bearable to sleep at night.
...Somebody mentioned cockroaches. Welcome to Florida! Cockroaches live here outside: they are called "palm bugs". I am sure they won't be able to make it to the ninth floor of a Hilton, but if if the doors of the rooms open outside, there is no surprise at all, you can find one, quickly crawled up through the door. We have terminex service at home every month, sometimes 2-3 times in a month, and occasionally I find one or two "dead bodies" inside the house/garage/patio after the treatment. In many cases in Florida living spaces this is not because of a mess, this is mother nature right at your feet!
There is a swimming pool in this hotel, and I saw kids swimming there. I guess it is fine too, as it looked clean.
As a budget inn it may be called almost exemplary, IF NOT FOR THE SMOKE SMELL.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms might offer more privacy.

We would stay in this hotel again when in Sarasota! This small hotel was very comfortable, clean and so convenient to beaches, downtown, island hopping and general sightseeing. The staff was helpful, the beds and pillows were comfy, some remodeling has been done, and the rooms even had Keurig coffee makers, which was a really nice touch! We also appreciated the soft towels on the first night. They offer a continental breakfast if you wish to grab something on the go. If you are looking for a great room at an affordable price, you will not be disappointed with Knights Inn Sarasota.

This small hotel is clean, quiet and convenient to either downtown or the airport and very reasonably priced, even during the high season. The rooms have been recently redone - new paint, carpets, furniture, bedding, etc. The linens were spotless and our king room had a comfy bed, good sized frig, microwave, table and chairs, sofa and coffee table. We picked up take out food and saved the left overs for the next day. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful and the coffee and bagel's were fresh. The continental breakfast had several other nice items as well. We will certainly stay there again and have already told others about it. It's a challenge to maintain older properties but Mr. Patel is doing a good job and stands out in the economy/budget class.

Room Tip: Our room was 2nd fl, facing the street but was very quiet.

We were 3 graduate students visiting Sarasota for the weekend and had originally had booked rooms at the days inn airport. Due to it's unlivable conditions had to immediately change hotels. We were extremely fortunate to come across the Knight's Inn. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and well accustomed to doing everything to help the room occupants. At virtually the same rate, Knight's Inn is clean, well-kept, safe, and inviting. The free breakfast was also a plus! Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: The hotel rooms face west or east, and the morning sun streaming in on the east side is quite penetr...

Good for the price and convenient to New College of Florida where we were visiting. We had a 2nd floor room in the back away from the street that was quiet, clean and the team (front desk and cleaning staff) were friendly. Good restaurant in walking distance called Barnicle Bills.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back (away from the street) are quiet. I also prefer the 2nd floor rooms
