“Quiet, and comfortable-near airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Clean and comfortable. Staff very pleasant and accommodating- Charles at the front desk
has fabulous people skills and was gracious and helpful. Room was clean and bed comfortable-a microwave and small fridge and coffee maker was available in room. Not a super deluxe property, but more than adequate for the very reasonable price, also free WiFI! A computer desk and printer for boarding passes is available on the first floor, along with a small in ground pool. Location is super close to the airport, yet tucked away in a quiet and safe area. We stayed five nights while attending the Sarasota opera. A daily breakfast is provided and the cheerful and gracious attendant, Donna, keeps the tables sparkling clean while she provides an ample array of tasty hot and cold breakfast items for her guests to choose. Sleep Inn might not be a deluxe property like the Ritz Carlton, but Charles and Donna are examples of personnel who are definitely five star hospitality hosts.

It was a bed. Clean but nothing special. A/C extremely noisy, telephone between rooms was frustrating (broken, but i'm sure this was a once off problem and probably shouldn't be applied to 'every room and situation'). Pool area and tables were dirty, leaves everywhere and things generally needed a little maintenance. There was no bottled water in the room (i don't normally get too grumpy about this but florida water is like drinking pool water!).

There is no restaurant at the hotel, but you can drive 2-3km (1.5mi) up the road where there is McDonnalds and a Primo's, (there is however a room for breakfast).

Would I stay here again? Yea possibly. If another hotel was available at the same or better rate I'de probably go and have a look.

Room Tip: Good if you need a place to rest your head. If noisy air conditioners prevent you from sleeping you...

Chris, thanks for staying with us and reviewing our hotel. We recently renovated the property and are currently making the final touches - we apologize this may have interfered with your stay (i.e. AC unit). We try to keep up with the outside work, but at this time of the year the leaves are falling and the wind makes a mess of everything. We're sorry this has caused you some concern. We hope these aren't deterrents for a return visit, we surely take pleasure in hosting our guests!

Very pleased with the stay here. Very clean. The staff was great also. I highly recommend this hotel. The location was super easy to find. I will stay at the hotel again. For those who need a place to stay near the airport it's right across the street.

Charles at the front desk checked us in & took good care of us the two nights we stayed there. He baked some delicious chocolate chip cookies. Because this motel is back off University Parkway nestled between a Marriott Courtyard and a Hyatt Place, it's easy to miss it. But it's in a quiet location with lots of parking. Our 3rd floor room at the end of the hallway was a bit small because of a large round support beam. Had our suitcases been smaller, we'd have had more room to move around easier. Our king bed was very comfortable! The w-ifi & HD TV worked well. It would helped had we had a channel guide in the room. The hot breakfast was good, but the eating area could have been a bit larger. The staff here, including the manager, are very friendly & helpful.

Great choice here. We were greeted by an extra friendly desk clerk. Room was clean and amazing view of a neighbouring garden. You get more than what you pay for. There are complimentary cookies and coffee. The room was very comfortable. Minor issues: rooms are not very noise proof and the breakfast area cannot accommodate many guests.

Fairly inexpensive. Rooms were fairly clean. Pool was warm! Hotel was 15-20 minutes from Lido and Siesta Beach. Within 15 minutes of Pinecraft in Sarasota. It's a little ways off the road and might not be marked as well as it should. Overall a nice stay!

This hotel, located right next to a Marriot and a Hyatt and across from the Sarasota Airport was completely booked by the time we arrived. Glad we had a reservation. It isn't a new hotel and it shows, and it isn't the Ritz, which shows, too. But it is nice, clean, comfortable, quiet, and has what we are looking for. The desk staff both while reserving the night before and at check-in were EXTREMELY friendly. Continental breakfast was adequately normal. It does have an outdoor pool (no hot tub) but we did not use it.
