Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Homewood Suites by Hilton Sarasota receives mixed feedback from guests. While the hotel's prime location near beaches and downtown is appreciated by many, some guests feel the value is lacking due to uncomfortable beds and overpriced, outdated rooms. The service garners both praise for staff friendliness and criticism for unprofessionalism. Amenities are deemed satisfactory but dated, and while cleanliness is generally celebrated, particularly the well-maintained grounds and rooms, there are concerns regarding maintenance and temperature control in the rooms.

Morning, I need to share details of my recent poor performance. I checked in on Monday evening (3/25/24) and was assigned 201. I slept in this room until Tuesday. Tuesday upon returning to my room I noticed insect wings all over my nightstand by my bed. As I was trying to understand the source I noticed several live bugs flying and crawling on my lamp on the nightstand. In addition to the lamp these bugs were crawling in the hand wash sink outside the restroom. I immediately called the front desk and the gentleman changed my room to 204 which ended up reflecting the same pest control issues by the AC unit. Either way I had to change rooms twice and finally ended up in 211. This morning I woke up to another critters in the restroom. I did ask the rep on duty if he could leave a note for the General Manager to call me yesterday. I never received a call to follow up. Given this significant inconvenience I would expect some type of compensation. I attached the photos/videos. This hotel isn’t being maintained well.

Hotel's Favourite
I just wanted to say that Sam is a phenomenal front desk attendant, both engaging and funny, cordial and attentive, not to mention as accommodating as possible. Sam was a pleasure to work with upon checking in, making the experience smooth and easy... a raise is definitely in order for this stellar Hilton representative!

I travel frequently for work, and several times a year for personal travel. I always look forward to my trips to Sarasota, FL, and my stays at the Homewood Suites Sarasota. The property is centrally located, has easy access to I-75, US-41, and all of the sights and downtown Sarasota. Blanca Garcia and her entire staff are professional, knowledgeable, and welcoming, and make you feel like “family”, and like you’re at home. It is always a sad day on checkout day, as I really don’t want to leave.

We stayed 2 nights. Comfortable, clean room, we had a king suite. Breakfast was adequate, included protein, waffles, fresh fruit plus other options. Enjoyed the courtyard area for relaxing and reading. Close to restaurants and to Ed Smith Stadium. Not too far from downtown and Bayfront Park.

A repeat visit to this well run and well priced property. Friendly and professional staff is eager to please. Very clean common areas. Centrally located and a 10 minute drive to Main Street and the beaches, great complimentary breakfast buffet and free parking. Laundry on site. Pet friendly. The complimentary weekly meet and greet cocktail reception/light dinner buffet fell on Valentines Day this year and the staff really outdid themselves with extra treats and fresh flowers on the table. Four out of the usual five because the jacuzzi was not working for the three weeks of my stay. Otherwise, definitely recommend.

I must say that the staff was lovely. The firat night they gave me keys to an occupied room. Then our new room keys didn't work 4 times and we had to go back to front desk every time. The room was dirty-esp the tile floors. I used their washcloth to wash the tiles and was shocked at how dirty the washcloth was when I was done. The carpets on the stairs were so gross I started taking the elevator to get to the 2nd floor Laundry Room. We used $4.00 for two cycles in the dryer and our clothes never dried...and the number one reason you should find a different place...no hot water! We got put on a list the first day of rooms with no hot water. A technician came the first day but the other two days they said it was fixed. And I usually love Homewood Suites!

Monroe Center, Illinois29 contributions20 helpful votes
this Hilton property was way below standard for a Homewood Suites. It was also expensive ($325+ per night) for the quality . This hotel is old and very much in need of a remodel . Carpet is worn, walls dirty and paint chipped. Hallways poorly lit. Rooms were clean, but musty smell. When I checked in, I was asked if I wanted first or second floor. I asked for second floor. What I wasn’t told is the elevators were out in the building where my room was located so would have to lug my luggage up stairs. Thermostat did not seem to work as the temp was set to 69 but the air conditioner ran constantly and room temp hovered around 63. At the breakfast area, they had run out of to go coffee cups Had none. I asked to go back to my room to get one but was told no since I had checked out already (20 minutes earlier). I asked for printed receipt but the printer wasn’t working so not possible The hotel and the service were very below expectations for a Homewood Suites

Everything about the accommodations was great. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great. Most importantly, we could not have felt more comfortable while making it our home for 6 days while waiting to close on our home.

As other reviewers have mentioned, hotel is very old and out of date. Suite had two rooms with AC units, both of which were the old rattler style. One was not working, which was reported, but nothing done about it. One of the keys also stopped working soon after arrival. One of the elevators was also not working. The fold out bed had a paper thin mattress that felt like you were sleeping on the coils. My hip began hurting after about ten minutes. A prison cot would have been more comfortable and the bed also slanted at a 45 degree angle. Room also had a bad smell and ice was only available at the front desk. This is what you get for $400 in Sarasota.
