Trip to Sarasota

My husband and myself came down to Sarasota this past weekend for the first time. The hotel was overall a very nice experience. The room was very clean. I didn't have to worry about bed bugs like I do sometimes when I travel. Speaking of the bed, it was extremely comfortable. We had a great time.

Clean hotel, convenient location.

Took the family including our dog to siesta key for July 4th weekend. Just 6 miles to beach from the hotel. Clean room, pet friendly, a/c unit a bit noisy but worked. Free hot breakfast was fair, limited seating in breakfast area. Staff helpful n attentive. Would go back for right price.

This location had very friendly staff - especially the breakfast hostess. The quality of the food was above expected for free breakfast. Rooms were comfortable. A few issues occurred with the internet but were handled by calling a support number.

Good price for a good location but kind of dirty and dark

This hotel is a 15-20 minute drive from the beach. It's a really good value for the money. The staff is also very nice and accommodating. That being said, the room was a bit dirty. If you looked behind the night stand, there were actually other guests' belongings back there (like a kid's figurine's helmet, a small pad of paper and a pen, etc...). There was a small fridge, but no one had cleaned it for a long time. The room was also very dark. Granted, the corner lamp was broken and we never informed the front desk, but, unless it was an extremely powerful light, it still would have been very dark in the room. To conclude, I will note that my fiancé is very insistent upon washing all of our belongings because of the possibility of mites. In sum, it was a good location for the price, which is why I gave it three stars. I'd stay there again, but only because I'm a graduate student without a lot of money, and definitely not for more than a few days.

Sarasota center had some great restaurants. There is also an amazing gluten free bakery west of the hotel. Also, check out Historic Spanish Point, an archaic midden and then later a homestead.

Wow

I was booked into the handicapped room even through I did not request it.. The pool was wide open and nobody else there. Everything was clean and fresh...the bed was huge and so comfy. The remote did not work even after new batteries were installed but nothing to get up set about since I was just there over night. Would like to book that room again. ( Too much chlorine in the spa though)

Family Spring Break

I stayed here the first week of April 2012 with a friend and my daughter so we could visit the beaches within driving distance nearby. Overall, I have no complaints. The staff was very nice. The room was like any hotel room at a Holiday Inn Express I've stayed in prior. Although there was no on-site restaurant or bar, there was a pool, and a Dunkin Donuts across the street (for coffee, because the coffee is horrible) and a gas station. I actually walked a couple blocks to the drug stores for sunblock and drinks, snacks, etc. I would stay there again with my daughter. They did have a baseball team there and the teenage boys were mildly annoying, but overall, again, no problems.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to the Mote Museum, Monday's are free. It is near St. Armand's Circle, which has so many great shops. We went shopping after the beaches and there are stores of all kinds for all budgets. If you go during a busy time like Spring break, then you may want to skip Siesta Beach during prime hours or decide to get there by 8 or 9am if you want a parking spot, otherwise, Turtle Beach is a great beach. Turtle Beach doesn't have the pretty soft sand and has a sharp drop, but I thought the water and setting was SO much better and had a LOT less people and more parking. There are many other beaches, although we didn't have time to go to all of them.
