Hotel Ranola was comfortable and welcoming! The beds were amazing and the staff were super nice. The rooms are set up like small apartments which made sitting down to relax after a long day of work enjoyable.

I will definitely always book with Hotel Ranola when I come to Sarasota!

This is a vintage hotel remodeled to reflect the 1920s era. The room was wonderful. A comfy king size bed with a couch in the room, and fully appropriated kitchen. There was a large walk in closet with a dressing table and a remodeled private bath. The lady who registered us was friendly and helpful pointing out places to dine and the farmers market which was held the next day. The manager was friendly and helpful and the owner was helpful as we needed an adjustment to our shower which he repaired promptly to our satisfaction. My husband and I would definitely use this hotel when we return to Sarasota.

Like a small apartment - full kitchen, lots of modern technology, walking distance to downtown, restaurants, waterfront, etc. Very retro, back to the 60s era. We did not stay but visited friends who found this adorable place to stay in downtown Sarasota.

Hotel Ranola is a lovely Art Deco hotel perfectly situated near Main Street restaurants and the Whole Foods Supermarket in downtown Sarasota. Jeri and Teri provide warmth and charming care, and go out of their way to make sure their guests have what they need. We deeply appreciated their advice and genuine concern for our welfare - especially on a few days when we weren't feeling well. Kitchen facilities and good space made us feel at home.

The information center in Sarasota told us about the Ranola, and we are so happy they did. We were only in town for one night, but the Ranola was great. Loved the Art Deco building and decor. The people running the hotel made it feel like a bed and breakfast -- so kind, helpful, full of useful information about the community. And the location is perfect for walking the downtown. We shall definitely return to the Ranola when we get back to Sarasota.
