Got a pretty good rate for a night while in the area for spring training baseball. The hotel looks like it needs some renovations. Check in went smoothly and the room was ok. The carpet wasn't the cleanest, but I got an ok night's sleep. However, when I went to take a shower the next morning there was standing water in the middle of the bathtub. After I finished my shower I had to physically kick the last of the water to the drain so the next occupant didn't have to deal with standing water. Another thing that was disappointing was the housekeeping staff do not pay attention if you put the privacy sign on your doorknob. Twice they knocked on my door and came into my room even though I was trying to tell them not to. The first time I was still in bed and the second time I was fresh out of the shower and had to scramble to cover up. The breakfast was decent, except that the breakfast sausage had virtually no flavor. I booked a different hotel right up the road for my second night and was much more satisfied there.

If we had arrived earlier than midnight, I would've gone somewhere else. Our flight didn't land until 11 pm, so I chose to reserve a room at this hotel because (1) it's 5 minutes from the rental car pickup, (2) it offered rooms with a king plus sofa bed since we have three "adults" (parent with two teens) and (3) it's a member of a hotel family I trust and have rewards through.

But I regretted my reservation soon after arriving. Thankfully a n employee was present upon check-in as they are also transitioning to a remote front desk check-in kiosk, so it's a video chat with a person somewhere else and a scanner for your ID and credit card machine. The machine prints out a receipt and your room key. I was glad an actual person was there though since our room didn't have beds for three as I was expecting (one photo I'm posting from their website list of room types shows how it's possible to get confused since some king suites say they sleep 2 and others say 3). Thankfully the employee found a rollaway bed for our third guest (my smallest teen) to use.

The king bed felt very much like a box so it was not comfortable or cozy at all. They have remodeled some parts of the room (flooring and paint and the shower was nice) but other parts are in need of repair or replacement (like the desk chair in the photo).

We stayed here for an extended period. We were somewhat hesitant to stay on N Tamiami because the area has a bad reputation. Turns out the area is much better than it used to be in the past. It's okay to walk around in the daytime, but I still would not walk around at night.

As for the hotel itself, first the Pros: larger than normal refrigerator; outstanding selection of tv channels; bed was comfy; parking lot well-lit at night. Close to the airport and Ringling museum. Good sausage patties for breakfast. Andrea working the front desk was fantastic, always very helpful and cheerful. Management would do well to reward her.

Cons: the rooms are terribly in need of major renovation, from the ancient light fixtures, to the furnishings, carpet, and seriously outdated drapes and valance. Ice machine on second floor didn't work. Breakfast was okay, although they need to do something better than those thin, tasteless egg patties.

All in all a comfortable stay, but there are too many hotels in the area with much more modern and up-to-date rooms for us to return here.

This hotel is mediocre at best and that’s pushing it! It is ABSOLUTELY not worth $144 a night. They shouldn't be allowed to charge anything over $50. Rooms are gross-leave you with a nasty feeling. Our room reeked of smoke. If I hadn’t already checked in and had to wait for a credit I would have left immediately. Front desk was accommodating by bringing us air freshener and letting us cancel our reservations for the next day. DO NOT RECOMMEND unless your desperate. I would have spent the extra $40 to stay at a brand new hotel down the street. Quality is lacking for sure-nothing quality about this stay at all!!

This has to be the nastiest place I have Ever stayed in…
Dirty and cracked bathtub. Dog poop smeared on walkway to Pool area. Would have left but family member got a special deal that was non-refundable. Called for just towel change out and call would automatically hang up when you requested anything. And when I finally got through the management said I would have to come up to desk. Choice Hotels should be embarrassed to claim this as one of their hotels. Loud, people doing drugs, roaches in some rooms. Never again!

Well where do I start I can only have 1500 characters to write I had 5000 but here is a short version I am a ADA Advocate had 3 rooms to be next to each other the lady at the front desk had us on the 2nd floor and HELLO have people with disabilities that can't be on the 2nd floor. She screwed up again and only had 3 rooms that were not together she gave our rooms to someone else. Each of the rooms had City & County & ADA laws broken like No fire sprinklers that worked they were frozen with rust and NO smoke detector. Cigarette burn holes in sheets & pee on the toilet seat & holes in the carpet. Tub that leaked water all over the floor in the bathroom and the rooms stink really bad. Pool was closed no breakfast just a bag of things we couldn't eat and the shampoo bottles were used with half gone never changed. Washer & Dryer next to vending machines and were gross with rust all over them. Staff was using a blower on 2nd floor blowing it all over my truck the place is Dirty smelly down right gross. The pictures on the site was photo shopped as they aren't even close looking like what's in these pics. This is a 1 star hotel and below the WIFI LOL! don't work either does the TV service half of the time I am a Diamond Elite Choice Member and this hotel right here Stay Away!! if you expect this place to be to enjoy sorry you won't I think the rats left after there 1st time here LOL! I give fair reviews when warranted but have to call out this hotel for what it truly is and it is.

This hotel was so bad that we no
longer will risk staying at any Quality Inn Property from now on. Not worth the risk because corporate office needs to revoke the owners use of the name. The hotel needs to be converted into a homeless shelter. The lobby was like checking into a prison. Nobody at the desk. You check in at a kiosk with someone who is not even in town. That was fine but the lobby was very barren. The hotel doors needed a good coat of paint and the rooms were poorly updated. The rooms were priced very high. We walked down to the breakfast area. No tables or chairs. The food choices were very minimal but you had to take what little was available back to the room. We have traveled all over Florida on this trip and all other hotels have gone back to a full breakfast plan. So if management talks about Covid issues I will say that is false. They run an expensive, run down facility that needs to be stripped of the Quality name,

I mean I certainly didn’t expect the Taj Mahal but for $130/nt I would’ve expected cleaner more functional rooms. The fan was incredibly loud and the water dripped no matter how I adjusted the faucet.

It smelled moldy and the a/c unit didn’t work properly. I wouldn’t even let my children put their things on the floor or walk around barefooted.

And check in was terribly rude and impersonal. Two people standing at the front desk couldn’t bother their loud and obnoxious conversation to check me in and directed me to their kiosk. Someone seemingly overseas checked me in and the reservation was incorrect. Then the keys didn’t work so I had to come back down that get help from someone with the keys. Meanwhile the same two people still standing there in their conversation.

The whole situation seemed very shady to me.

Ok this is a cheap hotel good only if you cant afford anything better because it is near Lido beach which is nice, however we got no housekeeping due to Covid and I feel like that was not a good thing we stayed 3 nights we needed our room cleaned and clean towels and the front desk went to another room to give us those. I made my reservation on hotel.com in which I have never had a issue before doing so when it says pay at the hotel that's what I do and have done, in this case they had precharged my card before I got there which I was not happy because I wanted to pay with another card and couldn't do that. The water is not hot in the shower the air conditioning was not the best and the 2nd night about 11pm.the fire alarm kept going off at least 4 times they had to call the fire dept and that all lasted like a good hour with it going off and on for no apparent reason, very nerve racking to say the least and I was not accommodated for a free night or anything so my first visit to Sarasota the hotel was not good the beach was beautiful.

This property has a self check in kiosk, I didn't see any employees during my overnight stay. The room I was assigned was upstairs and I asked to change it and the guy on the video monitor said he couldn't. This kiosk scans your driver license, takes your picture all saved digitally. In the morning guessing on the number of cars in the parking lot, they were lucky to have 25% occupancy, so I am not sure why he couldn't have moved me. In addition, they charge you a $100 deposit that will be credited back to my account in 2-3 business days. On a side note this isn't a neighborhood I would walk around at night
