This is a great hotel to stay at in Sarasota. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, and perfect location. We were 10 minutes from downtown Sarasota, 10 minutes from I-75, and close to a variety of restaurants. I'd stay again in the future.

Excellent choice for anyone traveling with their dog; we have a well-behaved 20 lb Scottish Terrier and their dog policy is great! Previously we stayed at the Residence Inn across the street, which was noisy and they charged us $75.00 fee for our dog. This hotel is quiet,clean , comfortable and friendly. Enjoy!

A comfortable hotel with great rooms and very friendly staff. The perfect location for a conference I was attending. Great to get to the beaches, places to eat etc. I would stay here again. Breakfast could be better but no complaints as it was complimentary.

If you're looking for the perfect beach-side resort experience, this is NOT it. However, if you desire the convenience of a location mid-way between downtown Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch, or between downtown Sarasota and Bradenton or AT the airport, then this is the spot.

However, be warned that the property, once the bell of the ball, is now beginning to show its age (only 4 years old at that as of 2014) BUT the carpet is stained in most rooms. Stained and sticky in some! So, no bare feet in this establishment, please.

Other than the carpeting, the rooms are comfortable. Those located along University Parkway are generally larger than the others -- and so you get two windows. The king beds are fun and soft and big and clean. The bathroom is oddly located with a huge counter and sink facing the bed area, but once you get used to the layout, there's plenty of space.

The lobby is the best area in the place. Stylish, contemporary, and it is where you'll find your free breakfast every morning. Same old, same old breakfast that they've been serving for 4 years now, and essentially the same breakfast offered at all Hampton Inns. Not a complaint, just an observation. So, if you know the menu from other locations, you'll have it memorized when you dine here. BTW, the breakfast staff does a commendable job here. They try to stay right on top of topping off every serving dish and attempt their best to keep the place clean in spite of careless parents who let kids run wild.

Although my Hilton profile says "high floor, extra pillows, and room away from the elevator" they had me in a first floor room near the elevator. Confirming that you get what you've specified is important here, as whoever does the room blocking doesn't do it right! So, ask and hopefully you'll receive, as I did upon check in.

I was a little concerned when I saw that my room backed to a VERY noisy ice maker. But, the walls are well insulated (at least between my room and the ice machine). I didn't hear a think.
So, they get points for that.

The best asset here is the pick-up and drop-off service to and from the airport. Convenient and speedy, as long as you arrange ahead of time AND confirm that they got it right.

The front desk staff varies greatly from friendly to an older German guy at night that says, "Hello," but not much beyond that.

The little pool seems to be a popular gathering spot. Plenty of windows look down on it and it's right next to the parking lot. Could use a landscape buffer between the cars and pool.

Hamton's are consistently clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. The complimentary breakfast is so convenient for a quick start in the morning without having to go to a restaurant. The HHonors rewards program is one of the best allowing use of points for free nights stays.

My husband and I stayed three nights and we were very pleased. The hotel was spotless and the advertised that they wash all bedding including duvet covers between all guest stays. We had plenty of towels and pillows, free wifi, a great free breakfast with a lot of choices, a free evening happy hour and free hot coffee and tea all day. Even though the hotel was near the airport we never heard a single plane and it only took us 10 minutes to drive downtown. The rates were half what the beach hotels were charging. Would definitely recommend for someone not wanting a beach type hotel experience.

"Green" hotel which means no fridges in rooms, unless a suite. Very inconvenient. Hotel carpeting was stained throughout the building. Staff was not friendly at all. Not enough handicapped spaces for parking. Not near most good restaurants and shopping. On the plus side, close to Ringling Museum and pet friendly with no additional charge. Nice lobby and breakfast area. Nice outdoor pool.
