Springhill Suites Sarasota Bradenton

Reviewed 5 March 2013

I stayed here why looking for an apartment. I stayed 5 nights - room was cozy - no frills - breakfast is about what you would expect at this time of year - snowbirds flocking down early so they don't miss a free meal. Shower was cold at 8 am - again because the birds used all the hot water - when is someone going to tell these birds to get a life

Anyone location is good and all in all a decent place - priceline values is a 3 out of 10

This great 3-storey hotel is situated across the road from the exit out of the airport. It is between a good Residence Inn (with the full-size kitchens) and a Courtyard. However, the SpringHill is owned by a different, but equally good company from the other two Marriotts. The breakfast serving area is small, but the eating area is large and pleasant. The whole hotel had a relaxing aura, with earth colors, and green predominating. You can WALK to the Ringling complex (under half a mile). Remember that, while there is a tiny sink, microwave, and refrigerator, there are no pots/pans, and only a few plastic utensils.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, and have a tiny kitchen.

We stayed at this terrific property in February, 2013. Superb first impression. Greeted by friendly desk agent on entering property. Attention to detail is evident from landscaping to spotless room. Comfortable bedding, sufficient linens. Breakfast buffet plentiful and yummy. A must for anyone visiting Sarasota.

Everything in the Suites is newly remodeled and completely finished. It's fresh and immaculate. We arrived for the grand re-opening party, With complementary wine, beer, drinks, roast beef sandwiches from chef carving roast beef, all the shrimp you could eat, stuffed mushrooms, fresh vegetables, steak skewers, cheese boards, crudities and wonderful music. What a surprise!

Checked in (walk-in) for a 1-night stay due to business in Bradenton. The rate quoted by desk agent was better than what I had seen on the web. King suite was small compared to other brands (Homewood, Hampton) I have used recently. Not an issue since I was there for only 1 night. Comfy bed and spacious bathroom.

A few negatives for me: HVAC system is the old-school unit under the window (I would have expected a central-air, wall thermostat set-up). Room was icy when I first arrived, so I turned it to fan only. Later, on returning to the room, every other setting I switched to resulted in unbearable noise, making sleep impossible. There was a ceiling fan in the living/kitchenette area, but this was noisy too (thwack, thwack, thwack). I had to make the best of it, since it was by now quite late, but the lack of ventilation made for a restless night.

Other smaller, but still noticeable issues included paper-thin bath towels and a truly filthy, gross carpet in the elevator. The final glitch was caused by lack of communication among desk staff. I had requested late check-out (by 1 hour) and this was approved by the reception agent who checked me in. He stated he would "put a note in my record." Next morning, 20 minutes before official checkout, my room phone rang. Front desk wanted to know if I still planned to check out that day. So much for the note in my record.

While I probably would not return to this hotel, I have a feeling this may be as good as it gets in this location, at this price point.

Overall - clean hotel, recently refurbished, on edge of airport in an area with nothing around it.

Breakfast - hot (egg, bacon, porridge) & cold items, comparable to Hampton breakfast.

Staff - Pleasant, cheerful, helpful & professional (especially the temp breakfast lady)

Amenities: 24 hr tea/coffee station in lobby.

Room - (see video) 2 queen room was clean & large with separate sitting and sleeping areas. However, since its an older hotel you can hear when the adjacent room uses its bathroom or overhear people talking so they lose major points for that.

VIDEO REVIEW: http://youtu.be/QRVzWrq5f0A

Tip: 7 km up the road towards the I75 ia a fantastic shopping & dining area.

The four of us took our first airplane trip to visit the grandparents. We decided on this hotel because the room had a separate sitting area and sleeping area. Grant it, the sleeping area was a bit smaller than we liked with the A/C unit extremely close to one of the beds, but with two double beds instead of queens, that was to be expected. The sitting area has a desk, chair, bar sink, mini fridge, mini microwave and coffee maker. We only really used the fridge and the desk. The room has lots of outlets for recharging devices and two flat-panel TVs, but the channel selection could really have used a few more kid choices. Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon wasn't enough. Nick Jr. and/or Disney Jr. would have been good additions. Thankfully, we weren't in the room too much even though the weather was a bit cooler than desired (not the hotel’s fault).

The pool and hot tub are small. The pool is supposed to be heated, but they finished repairs the day before and then forgot to turn it back on so it was cold. Our daughter was the only one to venture in. We did sit in the hot tub, which worked just fine.

The daily complimentary breakfast was very good; eggs, sausage, bagels, english muffins, oatmeal, waffles, cereal, fruit muffins, juice. Lots of choices. We tried just about everything and only really didn't like the OJ. The staff was exceptional especially after we had several issues that had to be addressed with our room on the first day. Overall, we liked the hotel and would stay there again although next time we may need a larger room and I'm not sure if they have one that would be suitable.
