Luckily we only had to stay here one night. I wouldn't return. Our entire floor, the elevators even our bathroom smelled like marijuana. It was awful. This place needs serious renovations and a good clean up!!!!

Nice place to stay. Was concerned at first of the proximity to the airport but you din't hear anything inside the hotel. The hotel is not visible from the road because it is behind two other hotels. Great value.

This was the least expensive hotel we could find for a one night stay in Sarasota so frankly we weren't expecting much. Boy, were we surprised! The hotel is located at the far end of a quiet lane across the street from the Sarasota Airport, but far enough away that we never heard a plane or any traffic. All rooms... More

We recently stayed here for our daughter's wedding and had alot of family and friends there as well. When we first checked in they were under staffed and people were getting frustrated waiting to get to their rooms. The clerks behind the desk were doing the best they could but they too were getting a little short in patience. The... More

I was scheduled to stay here for four nights. When I arrived, my first room had a very strange cleaning fluid smell to it. So I was switched to another room. That room was musty and damp, but just barely tolerable. It was midnight, so I stayed. The next morning, the breakfast was terrible. I noticed that the carpets in... More

The decor had been updated but you could tell that it had been a few years and the building itself was old. They had free breakfast and it was perfect was a one night stay where we weren't in the room for long. The room was a little small and smelled kinda weird.

Probably had the smallest room in the Inn. Definitely too small for the king size bed. There was no room for much of anything. We had to put one suitcase on the floor near the door to keep it out of the way. There are no places to eat nearby. It is easy to get to. Room was clean and... More
