We organized a block of rooms here for our families and friends for our destination wedding in Sarasota. It was great to have large rooms with kitchens and free breakfast and supper meals were very much appreciated. This hotel is not near the beach but still very easy to go to and from if people wanted to make a trip over to Siesta Key. The hotel is on Fruitville Rd which provides easy access to Rt 41 (Tamiami Trail) or over to I-75. This was helpful for the running around we had to do before the wedding.

We stayed with them from April 4th through 8th, 2013. We had 5 people in the room consisting of 2 Tweenage girls and 3 adults. The queen sized pull out couch was plenty of room for the girls and then we two queen beds in the room, the adults were accomodated nicely.

The room showed no visible signs of wear and we even had a nice little kitchenette that was tocked with pots, pans and serviceware.

The included hot breakfast changed a little everyday, but had belgiun waffles available everyday, fresh fruit, a couple different cerials, bagels, muffins, eggs of some form, breakfast meat (sausage, baken, etc) and a potatoes or gravy. Food attendents were very good at their jobs and were quick to assist you if needed. Very satisfied.

The front desk staff was very prompt and polite. The first night we needed extra towels and the young lady at the desk was very nice on the phone. Literally within 3 minutes, the same young lady was at my door delivering a stack of towels and wash clothes. So very appreciative.

Overall, it was a terrific experience and we will definitely use this hotel chain again without hesitation!!

Room Tip: It really doesn't matter which room you stay in because this hotel seems to have walls with suff...

After reading mixed reviews at this location I was hesitant to book but I'm glad we did. Can't be beat for the price. One bedroom queen more than met our needs for our stay of one week. Excellent staff, clean comfortable rooms.

Breakfast, however, didn't keep to the noted schedule. One weekday we found a group at 6:30 am waiting for food. At 7 prompt (the time noted for weekends) the food appeared. Whether this continued for the week we're not sure because we just adjusted our time to arrive later. We never tried the dinner offering but find that feature to be something that might come in hand for some.

Toward the end of our stay work on the roof began. They started late enough to not bother sleep with noise. We were told the entire hotel would undergo remodeling this summer. We look forward to seeing improvements we we return next year.

Fort he price it can't be beat. We've stayed in basic Hampton Inns for more money and less accommodations. Having a kitchen with full refrigerator was far better than just a coffee pot.

Hint: if you stay: when returning to hotel from I 75 or East turn left on Beneva and right then right then another right on Tuttle then right onto Fruitville to avoid a scary U-turn after the property if coming straight from I-75 down Fruitville.

Room Tip: Queen bedroom better choice for space than the efficiency.

Thank you for your feedback and specifics. The week that you were here we attempted to make the change of our hours to that it would reflect one time period for the whole week (matching the weekend hours), it was a failed experiment as you and quite a few other guests pointed out that the early start during the week was much more convenient for them, so we nixed the idea and we will stay at 6-9am during the week and 7-10am on the weekends. I was really happy to hear that you gave us the chance anyway and that it was worth it! We are repairing our roof and should be complete by the end of the month and we will shortly follow with a renovation of the guest rooms. Thank you again!

Nice hotel, nothing fancey. Staff is friendly but hotel is older. Grounds are kept up and clean. Breakfast is good and the managers reception is OK. Do not ecpect a resturant quality meal. If your tired and do not want to go out to eat, this will do the trick.

Thank you for your feedback. We will be renovating by the last quarter of this year and we will be a fresh and new hotel. About being neat and well kept those comments are important to know and your specifics on dinner will also be considered when we put together our menus. Thank you again.

This is a lovely little hotel with an excellent staff. Very clean with everything I needed to be comfortable including free Internet and a nice breakfast. I really like the extra space and seperate living and dining area. A little home away from home!

This is a nice hotel. The salt water pool is great on the eyes and looks good at night. The beds are comfortable and the rates do include dinner and breakfast on the weekdays. There is also a full kitchens. They were not that child friendly

Thank you for your feedback aout our hotel and the nice comments. I was concerned to read that we were not kid friendly and hoped that you would expand on those comments. You may contact me directly at the hotel or you can send an e-mail to edward.carroll@hilton.com. We do have a high amount of leisure travel and we attempt to cater to all guests and with our pool and spa we have kids that spend all day in them both! We hope to see you again and I hope to hear from you.

Stayed here for a week in April with my family. Overall the stay was good. The property has a very friendly and helpful staff. It was centrally located to the beach and other places we wanted to travel (about 15 minutes from the beach). I have stayed at several Homewood Suites properties so I was a bit surprised at the smaller room size at this property. It is not awful just be aware the footprint is a lot smaller than a typical Homewood Suites. The closet was very poorly designed so storage of clothes for a family on an extended stay was a real pain. The closets are 6 feet deep but the door is only 3 feet wide. It is very cumbersome to try and use that extra 3 feet in the back of the closet so almost wasted space. There was also a sulfur smell in the water so just be aware, which is a minor inconvenience.

Room Tip: Try getting a courtyard room overlooking pool area. Otherwise looking at parking lot. There are a...

Thank you for your review and feedback. The Homewood Suites brand has offered the studio suites in the past few years with the idea of attracting a customer who was looking for the suite feel without paying for a full suite. While the studios are a one room suite they are definitely more economical and still have the full kitchens and sofa beds. As far as the sulfur smell in the water Florida is not uncommon all over the state as the mineral content is very high. We hope to see you again.
