We needed a place to stay on a quick weekend getaway to the Sarasota area and relying on Trip Advisor chose the Lantern Inn.

Easy to find. Friendly staff. Stayed in newly renovated room. Double room had king sized beds which were very comfortable. Quiet stay, felt safe. Convenient location to all our sight seeing. Would stay there again, and next time grab a drink at the Tiki Bar.

During the second week of February 2017, my wife and I had the opportunity to lodge at the Lantern Inn & Suites in Sarasota Florida. This easy to access hotel was located right off of HWY 41 and provided ample parking around the entire building. The front of the building was an attractive tropical décor with very tall palm trees...

Jim & Pha are the owners and operators of this establishment. We received exceptional service from the moment we walked through the front doors. Yanette couldn't have been more accommodating. The heated pool is wonderful and it faces West, so you will definitely be able to work on your tan. Coin laundry on site. A tiki bar right on site...
