There are many very good things about this hotel. The location is wonderful for the Ringling Museums (art, circus, and home), the Asolo Theater and the historic Asolo (these are two separate entities), New College, USF Sarasota, and the antique
car museum. The breakfast is great!! Waffles, eggs, sausage, all kinds of breads, juices, cereals, and more. The man at the desk, 4PM-midnight, is very friendly and helpful. Although the building is certainly not new, it is well-maintained and there is plenty of parking. I have absolutely no serious problems with Quality Inn, Sarasota, Tamiami Trail.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
It is an easy walk to all the attractions I mentioned in my review. You could stay here and not use your car for several days. There is an excellent restaurant, "Barnacle Bill's," within an easy walk and other smaller lunch shops close.
The hotel is located right by the Sarsota airport, which was convenient. The staff was friendly from when I checked in to when I checked out. The room itself contains the basics: bed, TV, hair dryer, wi-fi, mini-fridge, shower, etc. ; however, I
came across 3 bugs on my pillow. Knowing I was only going to stay one night and had a late check-in, I dealt with it.
The motel is a good value for the price. Don't expect the "Ritz". The rooms are tidy, but are showing their age. The in-room Wi-Fi died after the first day due to a power interruption, but one could get Wi-Fi internet access in the office. The
rooms did include a refrigerator and microwave, and had a large screen TV. The complementary breakfast, while not a gourmet selection, did offer a number of choices including hot/cold cereal, breads and doughnuts, waffles, egg patties and so-so sausage links, and a bowel of fruit. All in all a decent place to stay for those on a tight budget, or just want a bed at a reasonable price.
Hotel was nothing extraordinary but served its purpose, which was to be near Ringling College. The phone signal in the hotel area was pretty bad if you have T-Mobile, but the free internet connection was quick and easy to access.
