Beds are super comfy, just the hotel needs to be updated

Was out all evening at a business event. When I returned i was told there was noise all evening from my room. I explained that I was not in the room. They said i would have to leave or the police would be called.

For 169.00 I expect cleanliness and no stench of cigarettes. The room smelled like smoke. The toilet had cigarette burns. The tub had hair from the prior guest. The bed was comfortable. the towels were soft. Free breakfast ends at 9am..to early. But the staff was kind enough to get my son a biscuit and a sausage patty at 10 am

Have stayed here a number of times and the property, service, breakfast, all seem to remain in very good condition. The hot breakfast really stands out and there is a Spanish lady who works only Sat. and Sun. in the breakfast room who is very pleasant and helpful. I'm quite sure her name is Mila. Please give her an extra pat on the back and thanks from me. Pool area is very nice, parking good. and the staff helpful and courteous. Room has plenty of space, was clean, and comfortable.

This was my first time staying at a Quality Inn and my last. The employee checking me in has trouble with the computer and was cussing and yelling at the computer. The room at best was cleaned this year. Definitely not before we arrived. The smell was terrible. There was mold all over the ceiling in the bathroom. Bugs in the tub. Absolutely terrible. Shouldn’t be open.

Check-in went smoothly, with the front desk staff being very friendly and courteous. The room was, unfortunately, about what you would expect for the price. The bath was tiny, there was no real desk space to speak of, and the chairs were uncomfortable. More crucially, both beds were in less-than-pristine shape with some rather ominous stains, which I was quite directly told would not be getting fixed until morning. That was taken care of the next day, at least for one of the two beds. The breakfast options are pretty bare-bones and the biscuits aren't kept warm. I can at least say the beds were (ominous stains aside) very comfortable. I'm not sure I can hold it against the hotel, but there was a lot of exterior noise as well from other guests.

I have been travel almost every weekend in different hotels and I never have any problem to get refund back if you decided to leave early before my due date. There were only quality inn, Fl was not refund the money back if I leave early. That mean I have to stay with them 4 more days just do nothing that terrible.

Went smoothly without any troubles. Hotel staff was very nice.

The hotel was seedy. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but there was a strong cleaning fluid smell in the room. It looked like it had remodeled the room, but it was not done well. The bath tub had two chips. The room had a sloppy paint job. The breakfast was not good. The eggs were little disks that didn't taste like eggs. The coffee was pretty good. The overall effect was that the entire hotel was probably built in the late 70s or early 90s and it was remodeled in a spotty and incomplete way. I would probably stay there again because I got the room on Orbitz for a low price, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they wanted something with a low price. Early in the afternoon and later in the evening, I heard people yelling outside, and I worried that my rental car could be damaged, but it wasn't. It didn't seem to be in a very good area.

I stayed for one night and everything was fine. Check in experience was great with very kind staff that exceeded my expectations. Good room, very spacious. Good breakfast and great check out.

Nice pool. Very good breakfast. Close to key beach near Sarasota.

First time at this hotel and until significant changes are made we won't be back. First off the pros, Front desk staff very friendly, kind and curtious. Cons, Room was old, mildew smell, unfinished spackle on the walls, ceiling in bathroom Has a hole in ceiling with mildew that was painted over. Hotel cleaning staff didn't clean well, we had hairs in the tub and stains on the toilet when we arrived. We bought our own cleaner and cleaned . The next day we asked hotel staff to please clean our room, when we returned they made the beds but never changed the sheets. The breakfast was fair at best, both days were the same egg patties, mini sausages and sausage and gravy. Both juices were very watery the coffee was good . Very noisy throughout the night. We were in room 133. To be honest, we wanted to complain and get our money back but we were on a package deal with flight and hotel so we just dealt with it.

Excellent breakfast every morning. Fresh towels daily and detail to daily cleaning.

Came to visit granddaughter in Sarasota at her college Ringling Art and Design School. Hotel was close by.

I enjoyed the stay very much for the money and the area. The front desk gentleman who helped was soo great and accommodating. The hotel guests were a little sketchy and the neighborhood wasnt to great but the hotel and staff made it better.

Very pleasant staff, nice, clean and comfortable room, nice breakfast and great location.

This place has the hotel room doors on the outside of the building like a motel. don't stay there if you don't like that type of place. I don't-so it bugged me. The place is run down and not extraordinarily clean. There was a hole on the inside of my door. Also a crack in the tub. The hot water only lasted 5 minutes. The mattress was nice and comfortable. the wifi was actually pretty good. there was a fridge and microwave so that was nice. I tried very hard to ignore that the place was not up to my standards, but then....Went to eat breakfast and it was really gross. I didn't even bother finishing it. Went back to my room and flushed some tp down the toilet after blowing my nose. The toilet squirted water out the sides, and started flooding! At that point, I had had enough. I booked another hotel somewhere else. They refunded me for the remaining nights. I went to go to the restroom in the lobby, and was even more annoyed at the fact that the paint job looked like my 9 yr old did it with the cheapest paint ever. The only thing that even saves this place is the staff. The lady at the front desk was always sweet and nice. house keeping was nice too, and so was the maintenance man.

The hotel itself is very old but the rooms were exceptionally clean. The front manager of the hotel was terrific.

It was good definitely staying again breakfast was delicious.

In town to visit family. Inn reception VERY friendly, housekeeping, maintenance and breakfast room staff very polite and friendly. GREAT pool. WONDERFUL breakfast. WILL definitely stay next trip(s). Close to almost everything in Sarasota. All around enjoyed the stay, Thank you
