Hampton Inn & Suites Venice Bayside South Sarasota

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Comfortable room. Had to get a handicapped suite to regular rooms being booked under Orbitz. Only problem really was non enclosed shower leaked water all over the bathroom floor and no tub. Housekeeping staff excellent. Breakfast very good with lots of choices. Bed and pillows excellent. Decor was in need of refreshing especially in the hallways. Room rather dark. Lovely salt water pool. Over all above average.

Everything was great. Clean room comfortable bed great breakfast in the morning. Very accommodating. The only thing that I wasn't happy about was the pool is in a courtyard and didn't have full sun. A little chilly in the afternoon. But a very nice pool and hot tub. Would definitely go back

Excellent location and easy to get to, lots of good parking and access to your room

Excellent staff, great place to stay. Reasonable price. Close to downtown Venice shops and beach.

The location was perfect. My friend and I wanted to bike and the opening of the trail was around the corner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would rate the staff as fabulous!!!

Room was clean and comfortable. There was some construction going on which made the elevator unavailable but no noise or other inconvenience.

We made a quick stop in Venice before heading to our condo in Orlando for the week. This hotel was perfect for a quick weekend get-away. We were able to hope around each of the keys easily. The only complaint is the proximity of the elevator to the rooms.

This hotel was prefect! The complimentary breakfast was great. A very nice selection perfect for kids and adults! The room was super clean and beautiful! We needed 2 cribs for our 1 year old twins and they were ready for us when we arrived. The cribs looked brand new! Bed was super comfy! I wish every time we had to stay at a hotel it could be this exact one!!

The hotel has a really nice pool in the middle of the complex - all the halls/room create a square around the pool in the middle courtyard. The small workout room is sufficient for a vacation workout. The hotel staff was very friendly. I definitely recommend this hotel if you want to save some money or lodging and don't mind a 1.5 mile drive or walk to the beach.

Hotel is located just a couple of miles from everywhere we needed to be. However finding the entrance was a challenge the first time.

The room smelled from some sort of chemicals, there was no place to put anything in the shower, and every time the folks upstairs flushed I thought a dam had broken.

Room was very clean, staff present, friendly and helpful, hotel was minutes from beach and shopping, price was good, especially with Orbitz.com package deal with rental car. Great experience!

Fabulous breakfasts. Wonderful staff. Room was immaculate and clean.

We came to surprise my family for the Venice High School graduation. The hotel was wonderful, they took really good care of us. Offered a wonderful breakfast every morning, popcorn in the afternoon. They did offer cookies too but I never got those in the evening due to family visit. Thank you Hampton Inns for a wonderful stay.

We book this stay 2.5 months ahead. When we arrived we were not given the room catagory we reserved. Asked for 2 double beds non smoking room and were given king bed, smoking room. They said the room was sanitized to remove the smoke smell... needless to say, the room smelled as if someone had smoked in the room an hour before we arrived! The tv didn't work, but it was fixed after calling. Check in process was quick and not much information given to us. Had to call down twice to get the correct code for the internet. Breakfast was ok, but not up to normal Hampton standards on my opinion. I would not recommend this Hampton to friends.

I was in Venice to give a presentation on PC & Internet Security to a local club. My flight was delayed half way there and I called to say I would be late getting to the hotel. That was fine with them. But, when I got to the hotel shortly after 10PM, I found the front door locked! I must say that in all my traveling, this was a first for me. There was a call button next to the door, though. I asked the manager the next morning if the hotel was in a bad neighborhood or if there had been problems in the past. She replied that it was a nice area and that all Hampton Inns locked all doors at 10PM. Indeed, it was a nice area with a bank, another hotel, and a very nice restaurant in the same location. The hotel itself is clean and nice looking. A small table in my room should have been replaced since it has at least one bad leg. Otherwise, no problems with the room. The staff over-all are nice and helpful. This hotel does not have an ATN in the hotel. This was also a first for me. I asked about this also and was told no Hampton Inns have ATMs on site. Traveling as much as I do, I carry very little cash on me and rely on using my Visa card for business expenses. By the way, no external ATM was found at the bank next door. ATMs seem to be lacking in Venice, FL. Anyway, though the hotel & staff are OK, the 2 "firsts" are deal breakers for me. If you can travel without an ATM & be sort of locked out of the hotel, then this is a nice place to stay. As for me, I probably will not stay at a Hampton Inn again unless there is no better choice. In fact, I have stayed at lesser rated hotels where just as nice a room had a lower price, they had an ATM, and they did not lock the front doors. Hence, the reason why an otherwise nice hotel gets only 3 stars from me.

There for business. Had trouble getting down and up off the toilet, bad hip. Maybe taller toilets would be nice

It was clean and easy access to the beaches and any fun things you would like to do. The staff was great.

What a great hotel. We would absolutely stay here again!

I wasn't expecting such a great stay, but this hotel really surprised me. The free hot breakfast, free coffee 24 hours a day, and friendly staff really sealed the deal for my wife and I.
