“Parking lot lights kept me awake”
Reviewed 13 February 2011

Two problems with the room. The single TV was had to see from the bed and impossible to see from the workdesk. Also, I had a first floor room that faced the parking lot. The parking lot lights shined the entire evening. No real curtains, only shears. Unable to block out the lights. Made for a difficult night sleep. I paid more for this hotel than I did the prior night in Boynton Beach at a wonderful Courtyard, also a Marriott property.

Upon arrival and each time we went through the lobby, we were greated with a smile and hello from the incredible staff. The rooms were large, clean and lay out was perfect.
The breakfast buffet didn't have a lot of choices, but was very good.
Nothing bad about this hotel. Would certainly return.

This property is about 5 miles off I-75, built directly across from a Residence Inn. Hotel is 9 years old and in great shape, rooms were in excellent condition. Pretty standard continental breakfast of eggs, pastries, cereal (all the sugary kind though), waffles. Fast internet service. No 'walking distance' restaurants, nearest one is 1-2 miles (Barnacle Bill's) then about 5 miles for others. The location is so-so, the road it is on is somewhat secluded from activity, not alot nearby it but could be an advantage, depending on your perspective. Siesta Key is about 11 miles, which is a nice beach area. Very safe, comfy, helpful staff. Good for families. Business travelers may want to stay closer to the interstate.

Nice helpful staff, spacious rooms nicely equipped. Could have benefitted from more toiletries such as bath/shower gel, but that's my only gripe. Pool area nothing special but clean and tidy. Good choice at breakfast with good mix of healthy options. Internet access brilliant, in rooms with cable and wifi in lobby.

Reviewed 25 July 2009

This hotel was tops! I am a woman travelling alone. The hotel was so safe and secure, I felt at ease. Even the gorgeous swimming pool and hot tub required a room key to get in. The room key was also required to reinter the hotel. In addition, the staff was friendly and helpful. When I had a question about the shower, maintenance was there in 90 seconds. The hotel is beautifully landscaped, and the room was spacious and elegant. I enjoyed the frig, microwave, and wet bar. The suite was super clean, the temperature was perfect, and I appreciated the blackout shades that blocked the morning sun. My only criticism is that the breakfast coffe was horrible, and the muffins tasted like the freezer and were inedible.. The guests eating the waffles and eggs seemed pleased. I appreciated the free internet access in the lobby so I could check my email. The location is perfect for the Ringling Museum and downtown Sarasota. When I checked out, the desk attendant gave me a cold bottle of water for my trip. I would definitely stay there again!

This is a great hotel if you are looking for somewhere clean with great value. The hotel clerk that greeted us was very nice. The suite was big. The free breakfast was excellent (eggs, sausage, bagels, waffles, etc). Our room was quiet. This is close to local resturants and just a few miles from downtown Sarasota. Free high speed internet, nice poolf & fitness center.

Loved this hotel and was sad to leave. They have a great pool that is nicely shaded by beautiful landscaping. Everything is well maintained. You cannot hear the planes at all inside. I do not agree with a previous reviewer that says this is not a good spot for vacationers. We found it to be close to lots of great beaches and restaurants. I would be thrilled to stay here again.
