“An Oyster!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

From the looks on the outside...SKEEVY is the word that comes to mind. Motel style because the ground floor rooms are on the parking lot and some of the top (2nd floor) rooms have balconies. This is a small property that looks dark and dingy on the outside but warm and cozy on the inside. It was clean and very quiet. The bathroom was big and they even give a shower cap and mouthwash as the usual amenities. I didn't hear any outside noises and slept like a baby. The morning breakfast was nothing to write home about but is was fresh and gave plenty of room to sit and watch the morning news while eating. Both mornings I was there, I saw the pool maintenance company cleaning the pool and everyone I passed entering the main building was friendly. I recommend this property if you need to work in the area or are visiting a family member at Sarasota Memorial Hospital as this property gives a wonderful discount for visitors.

This Homewood Suites as all the other Homewood Suites that I have stayed in was very friendly, clean, and efficient. Everyone was extremely helpful and made sure you had a pleasant stay. I always look to see if there is a Homewood Suites in the areas that we stay.

This hotel offers the usual larger room which is then called a suite but there is only one room with a larger sitting area. Reception staff were friendly and helpful but the room had seen better days and money needs to be spent to keep up with the competition. The floor of our room was very squeaky and the bed linen could be improved. A heavy duvet in August in Florida is not my idea of comfort altho the A/C was efficient and reasonably quiet with the added advantage of a ceiling fan. The bathroom was pretty standard and water pressure in the shower was good. Breakfast was better than average and I was pleased to eat from proper plates with metal cutlery!
The pool area is very good and incorporates a jacuzzi but the fitness centre needs re-equipping with a greater variety of modern machines. The hotel is not good enough to warrant 4 stars but 3 and a half would more accurately reflect my opinion.

I stayed here over Labor Day weekend with my family. This property was sufficient for our two night stay and convenient location to the beaches nearby. However, for the price I feel this property is too outdated and needs improving in some areas to live up to the Hilton name. I have stayed at Homewood Suites in other cities and this is by far the least impressive of the group. Breakfast was decent, could tell they are "low budge" as the cereals were in containers and not in mini boxes as i have had at other Homewood suites. The fruit was bruised and turning bad and the coffee was below par. The walls are thin and you can hear people talking in nearby rooms and walking in the halls. The sheets looked like they had not been changed upon our arrival and the comforter had black stains. The carpet and furnishings were old and outdated. Also did not like that the bathroom sink area was carpeted- very 1970s. Also found a huge roach outside our door in the hallway. For this stay it was "just ok", if ever back to Sarasota we will be giving other properties a try.

Awesome! I went with the family for a quick 2-day getaway. Location is awesome, close to beaches, shopping, dining. Kids loved the breakfast and the pool is a great place to relax at end of the day. Now I know where to come when I just want a little break away from the everyday hustle.

Maid service was not the best. Dishwasher full upon arrival, when asked for additional bath towels small hand towels were provided, had to call down to desk to get bath towels. Turn down service the second day poorly done, beds not done properly, used glasses in bathroom were not replaced. Hallways noisy with young children running down hallways. Noted large dead roach in hallway when returning to the room.

The hotel was very clean, and the staff all were very nice. The hotel offers breakfast which was very nicely displayed. Parking could use more lighting, and hotel front sign was not very visible from the road especially that you have to make a U turn for the main entrance (several people were talking about how they missed entrance as sign was not visible)

Room Tip: We had several pieces of luggage so the ground floor was perfect for us.
