Right near the Ringling facilities and the Sarasota airport. Breakfast is adequate- breads, cereal, fruit, coffee and juice. Pool is a nice extra, and we used it on Nov. 12! On most of the TV stations there was a lag between the audio and video; sort of like seeing an old Japanese movie! The floors appear a new wood laminate...

By your own words you gave our business a so-so rating. Please email me what it would take to get a five star rating in terms of what we are not doing so we can continue to improve.

We stayed two nights whilst visiting friends who were staying at a five star property close to Sarasota old town. When we had a look at their fabulous room there, costing ten times more than ours at the Knights Inn, we commented that whilst the facilities and complimentary bits and pieces were unquestionably fantastic, you didn't really NEED them all...

Nice to average place with renovations going on. Breakfast needs sorting as you can only sit outside by pool or go 30 metres across car park to your room, not good if raining or have to carry plates and cups with food and drink.

Love this hotel they are renovating and every visit I see great improvement. The staff is very nice and professional. One of few places I will lay my head outside of my home with ease. Conveniently located restaurants within mins of the hotel. The breakfast is good but I'm a southern girl who requires a spread so I don't always...

I stayed here for seven nights the first part of October 2016. I always look for a bargain, because I'm just looking for a clean place to stay a few nights, not a place to move in. They had a weekly rate of $385 plus tax for a week, so I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised when I...

We have been "running away" to Sarasota, on long weekends, since the late 80's.We began staying at the Knight's Inn when the Super-8 changed management and almost doubled the prices. The price is a great value, the facility is clean (no roaches) and everything works. We enjoy the fridge and microwave and use them both for snacking. The breakfast has...

Very helpful staff comfortable room. However it is a complete pain to have to use at least 200 characters when writing this review. Why can't I choose? So far I have only written 151 so I have to go on or I can't give the hotel the credit which it is due. We would stay here again, but I doubt...

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting Sarasota. Standard motel recently renovated. Beds comfy. Pool clean, warm and inviting. Breakfast of good standard. Staff at front desk very welcoming. Within walking distance of Ringling Museum. Great base for visiting Sarasota and the surrounding area at a reasonable price.

Friendly staff. Clean. Hot coffee and bagels. Inviting pool. Parking. Towels. Comfy bed. Hair dryer. Fridge. Good central location. Older motel, but updated, remodeled. To be sure, noisy air conditioners, a funky smell or two, dated fixtures. But hey! A basic motel that is good value for the money.
