I am so impressed with this hotel. First off, the staff truly what you to have the best experience possible, they are so friendly and willing to do anything to their power to make your stay awesome! The hotel room was very clean and spacious. Really enjoyed the fact it had a full kitchen- you definitely feel like you are living there and not just staying in a hotel. This is the place to stay!

Just spent two lovely days in Sarasota. We chose the boutique Hotel Ranola for its location downtown and were delighted. The staff was friendly, Jerry the manager was a great reference for things to do and places to eat. She was as interested in our opinions as we were of hers. The room was spacious and clean. Comfortable chairs, cable, WiFi, small kitchen with a table and 2 chairs if you wanted go eat in. The hotel has 9 hotel rooms and 9 apartments . It has been that way since the 1920s . An interesting fact.

what a fabulous/fantastic hotel which was only exceeded by Geri, Terri and Dale who make you feel so welcome and are absolutely so fun to deal with. Clean, quiet, tidy place and close and convenient to downtown. We were in fit for a queen and felt like it was our own little apartment! We were there two nights last week checking real estate places and will be back in April. Thank you!

Room Tip: don't know about the other rooms but ours was great - #4

We stayed at Hotel Ranola last week and it was great. Never thought such a gem would be hidden right downtown Sarasota within walking distance to lots of restaurants. Jeri was very helpful and she had lots of suggestions of things to see or do while we were there. The rooms are great, they are actually more like an apartment and it was great, bed very comfortable and nice chairs to relax in. Cooking facilities if one wanted to cook or eat ‘at home’. We will definitely come back. The art deco style looks great and I would love to try all the rooms.
Would love to come and stay for a few weeks since it felt like our own little apartment right downtown.

I hesitate in writing this review as I do not like to share my secrets...

This is a beautiful property being restored to it's Art Deco flavor. Walking s=distance to downtown, it's the perfect perch for a Sarasota adventure.

The hotel is clean and quiet.

The front desk and hotel staff make you feel welcomed, like an old-friend come for a visit.

We were so happy with our stay here and look forward to the next!
