All of the staff members were extremely friendly and hard working. The breakfast was good. They served scrambled eggs (which tasted homemade), sausage, biscuits, bagels, toast, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit cups, oranges, apples, bananas, waffles, fresh pastries from The bakery next door (one day they had donuts, the next cinnamon roll) and the best banana bread. The coffee was good and fresh and they even offered ice coffee. I’m sure I missed something. They kept up supplies very well. Everything was stocked even when we came down at 10AM. We went to the beach for the day and they had a few beach chairs we borrowed. We really appreciated this. The bed was very comfortable. Shower pressure could have been a little better. I would definitely stay here again.

The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly Front desk staff saw we were going to the beach and gave us chairs to use no charge Room staff asked what we wanted done every day then did it Hotel was beautiful and very clean

The best hotel we have stayed at in many years, so so friendly, I must if you come to Sarasota, fl

Friendly staff and calm atmosphere. It was also unique to see amish theme decorations. We would stay there again

Carlisle Inn was such a treat and unexpected surprise. This hotel is by far the cleanest hotel I have ever been to and I’ve stayed in some really expensive properties. It is very quiet as well, you barely hear a door slam. Most of the guests staying were respectful and wore a mask. There is hand sanitizer everywhere including the elevator. I felt extremely comfortable staying there. My trip to Sarasota was made even better because of this property. Absolutely recommend. They have free breakfast buffet and it’s quite big, plus the restaurant right next door with great option for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

This is a very clean and amazingly pleasant hotel. I came last year and couldn’t wait to come this year. It’s a Amish location and the restaurant buffet that’s in the same plaza has the best home cooked food I’ve tasted in a while. All the staff are friendly they had a card with a little gift waiting for me in my room once I arrived. It’s definitely a 4 plus star rating all the way around great experience.

Connie was amazing!!! Very nice and very clean!!!!

Clean, friendly service, and good value… recommend without hesitation.

Executive suite was very spacious, comfortable and clean

Good location. Comfortable and clean.

Love this hotel. Nice and clean. Would definitely stay at another Carlisle Inn!

Very nice and clean place to stay

The building is very clean inside and out. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was the best I’ve had at a hotel. The location is perfectly centralized for all of the activities and points of interest. Plenty of free parking. Excellent experience overall

The hotel is centrally located in Sarasota and not very far from anything but you need a car. The hotel was very clean and the hotel personnel were very nice, pleasant and helpful. We will be back.

The staff was friendly and professional. Breakfast- was excellent. Rooms were clean.

This property was very unique in that it was run by Amish people. It was beautifully decorated with scenes from Amish life, Amish art, etc. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were so nice. Our room was much larger than a typical hotel room and we enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit outside. It was an excellent stay with all the amenities we needed to be comfortable. My only complaint was that the pillows were too thick.
