“Just What We Needed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Recently my husband and I plus our two children stayed here for four nights at the end of August. As most people are no longer traveling once school is back in and almost back in, the hotel was really quiet. We stayed in a top floor room at the end of the building away from the elevator and had zero problem with noise. On our last night, the Friday of the September long weekend, suddenly the hotel was full of people. Still, we had no problem with noise. This most likely our lucky location, though, thank goodness!

The room was mostly clean - I want to say about as clean as a hotel room can be, albeit for a stain on the carpet and on the top blanket of one of our beds which was quickly rectified by the front desk. Speaking of the front desk, Judy in particular was extremely sweet and kind to us, as was another female employee who was young with blond hair pulled back in a ponytail. One day she was at front desk and another she was working in the breakfast area. Fantastic customer service attitude in this hotel.

Breakfast was decent - typical, but the nice thing is they have not gone cheap on what they offer! The orange juice WAS orange juice, not watered down. Name brand oatmeal and cereal packets available. Etc.

We stayed here as our base for a beach vacation, and had no problems visiting Siesta Key. It really was a quick drive. We also headed south to Caspersen Beach, finding the drive no problem, but when visiting Anna Maria Island, the traffic was a bit much.

There are many options to eat near the hotel - Subway, MacDonald's, Chick-fil-a, Dunkin' Donuts, Buffalo Wild Wings. A Walmart is not far north either. Walgreens is next to the hotel, and many gas stations are right there, too.

Overall, a very good stay, and we would definitely return if visiting the beaches in the area again.

Room Tip: Top floor room at the end of the hall, farthest from elevator.

First stay at this hotel which is situated just off I75 and about a straight 5 mile drive to Siesta key beach. There are three restaurants within a 5 minute walk and dunkin donuts is a few yards away. The rooms are quite large and the beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are reasonable but water pressure is poor and thus the shower was very disappointing. Usual but limited drawer space. Breakfast was good with a wide choice of cereals, hot food etc but the latter was very average and I do object to eating from paper plates with plastic cutlery! However, having stayed at several other hotels within the vicinity my wife and I believe that this hotel offers the best bang for your buck.

Room Tip: the rooms with two beds seem bigger than those with one.

Stayed on Friday Aug 30th the night before a week in a condo own the beach. This hotel is as good as the reviews.

The only thing I can add that wasn't mentioned before is that an employee named Eric checked me in at 10 pm and checked me out at Noon. I don't know if he ever sleeps but he was super professional both times.

I visit family two or three times a year in Sarasota and I will stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here in June. We chose it because of the tripadvisor ratings, and we were well pleased. It was fairly new, and inside everything was fresh and clean. Good service at the desk. Breakfast was fine, with some protein (important to me) in yogurt and hard-boiled eggs.
It's near the freeway exit, not the beaches, but it was also only 10 minutes from Madfish Grill, where we had a great dinner.
Overall an excellent value here.

I visited the Comfort Suites with my partner for a weekend getaway. I was encouraged by the Trip Advisor reviews and mostly agree with the glowing reviews. The hotel being new still wears well, with little wear and tear. The photos on the hotel website are pretty representative of the actual state of the hotel and the rooms. We stayed in a 'King Suite', which had a short wall dividing a small living room area from the bedroom. The bed was comfortable, and the TV was gi-normous (at least for my taste!) with a huge selection of channels, including Showtime. The bathroom was average, with a small bath and basic shower head. The breakfast in the morning was fine, with a wide choice of bagles/muffins/toast to cereals/porridge, waffels and scrambled eggs. The coffee left something to be desired but there was a Starbucks around the corner!

The location of the hotel is okay - the neighbourhood is typical Florida suburbia, with a large Publix grocery store across the street, 2 shopping centres about 10 minutes drive away, and the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key a bit further away.

If you are coming for a long weekend or with family this hotel will is ideal, with all the comforts you'd look for. If you are coming for a longer stay from far away, I would suggest staying somewhere nearer Siesta Key, which oozes all the best you'd associate with Florida.
