Upon arrival a lady yelled out the second story window that there is drugs being used here. My husband and I looked at each other and thought about getting another hotel room but we did not have time, we were in town for a show. Our first room looked to have blood all over the carpet so I called down... More

When we first checked in we were given a room with a king bed. We could barely walk around the bed as the room was so small. We sat down on the bed and found that the bed was the most uncomfortable bed we had ever encountered. We contacted management and were switched to a room with two double beds.... More

I am currently staying here and waiting on management to visit my room. Checked in yesterday 10-14-2016 went to the first room smelled like something was rotten. Management came and moved us immediately to another room. We were so tired from the drive. We took a nap. Upon waking up we started to see everything. This room had no fridge/... More

First time staying at this hotel, staff seems odd and not all that professional. The staff checking us in was nice but the professionalism was not there. Room was very tiny for a king bed. Room was cleaned but all the pillow cases were missing, did receive them when I went to front desk.

The front desk is very friendly, very accommodating, they were the most commendable about the hotel. The hotel itself is dated and worn out. It did not seem too clean outside (parking lot, pool) from where I could see. It is not a place where I would feel safe going outside in the dark - I went out to get... More

Through a weird set of circumstances, we stayed here twice in three days. Both times, we used Choice Privilege Points. The first stay was better than the second. I wondered if we were given the lesser quality rooms since payed for by points, but considering thatm we really should be treated better, not worse. I saw many complaints about the... More

The BAD & THE UGLY....The slightly crooked and very faded Sleep Inn sign on the building as well as the cigarette butts littered at the entrance was a sure sign to me of what awaited us inside!!

I reserved this room about 1 month prior to my trip to Florida for a wedding. The hotel called me the afternoon of my stay to confirm my reservation, and I did confirm that I would be staying that night. Then, at 11:30 that night, as I was minutes from leaving the reception to go there, they called to tell... More

The price was right. But that was the only thing. Sarasota Sleep Inn is in desperate need of renovation. Carpets are worn and dirty, showers are stained and ours dripped constantly. Management responded to our complaint about the dripping shower but the fix lasted only a few hours and then started dripping again. Paint was chipped, bathrooms small and had... More
