I haven't needed to go back to FL recently, but I totally appreciate the owner of the hotel taking the time to both respond to me when I posted, then posting an update about things she changed months after the fact. Bodes well; I'll make sure I stay here again next time.

For the money it was pretty good. rooms were pretty clean. It reeked of cigarettes when I first walked in my room but it dissipated quickly. Decent sized rooms. shower smelt like an old lady though..... every time I showered. Idk if its the water or what. The staff was very kind. overall pretty decent

Considering the room was only $60 a night, you get what you pay for, so I didn't go in with high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when everyone at the front desk was extremely friendly and always had a smile on their face. They were renovating, so our room had brand new carpet. The room was a little small, but clean and had a nice appearance. We had originally booked two nights, but decided to head home on the evening of the second night. We checked out around 6:15 pm and, to our surprise, they didn't charge us for the second night even though we stayed much later than the check-out time.  We were very pleased with the service and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bargain place to stay.

Small but clean, quiet and comfortable rooms at extremely reasonable rates for an airport hotel.  The hotel was in the process of remodeling while I was there so I had to navigate around some rolls of carpeting in the halls but overall the hotel was very nice.  The water out of the shower had a tremendous sulphur odor to it which took a little getting used to and the wi-fi could be spotty at times.  Free breakfast and newspapers are available.  Parking is a little tight right next to the hotel but there are plenty of spaces available if you don't mind parking right outside your door.  Directly across from the Sarasota airport and within walking distance of the Ringling Museum, the hotel is an easy drive to downtown Sarasota, St. Armand's Circle, the beaches and restaurants.  I'll stay here again the next time I'm in Sarasota.

I stayed here with my husband and daughter this summer and thought it was quite nice for the price . We stayed 6 nights and it came to be about $340. The room itself was a little small with no fridge but we were traveling and had a large cooler so no big deal. The our room was a single bed and had a stand up shower . Simple but nice enough . The pool was small but wasn't busy so it felt like we had it to ourselves . The breakfast was pretty good . Each day they have different things. Some days they have bananas, oranges, small donuts and Danishes. I think there was always oatmeal, bagels and English muffins. Other things were rotated but we always found things that we liked! Very close to the airport, museums and beaches. I would recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and maybe always out on the beach or exploring Sarasota!

My boyfriend and I only stayed here for one night but we really liked this place, especially for the cheap price.  The room was big enough and very nice looking with a flat screen TV.  It is directly across from the airport so you will need to drive a short distance to downtown, St. Armands or Lido Beach but not far at all.  The desk person TJ was very nice and always accommodating.  The only thing about the hotel I did not care for was the free breakfast.  For free it is decent but personally I would have rather gone to a restaurant with better quality breakfast and spent the money.  All in all I would stay here again, the room was clean, good TV and cable and nice service.

Stayed here this past memorial day weekend and was nice. We had cheapest room available so quite small but we didn't go to Sarasota to spend whole day @hotel so it was great for price. Only complaint was breakfast can get a bit crazy so go early! But can't complain much as it was free.

We stayed here for a week in March, when we got married.  We had a king room, which was small -- no couch, table (though it has a desk), tub, microwave or fridge.  The bathroom is very small, with a pocket door, so it's a little noisy when one gets up during the night.  

At first pass, my husband wasn't sure about the room at all -- especially the bathroom -- because he has a touch of claustrophobia.  We found, however, that the walk in shower is like the TARDIS -- it's bigger on the inside.  Housekeeping only gives you two bath towels, but I'm sure you could get more if you needed them.

Don't be afraid of airport noise -- there is very little of it, and none at night.  There aren't many restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but close by is just about anything you'd want.  The drive under canopy is tricky, as the area is rather small.  We actually wondered today how the couple parked there would even get their Cadillac out, as our compact car was a tight squeeze, depending upon how I pulled in.  The pool is outdoors, and heated.  We haven't been there yet, but it is a pretty setting.

Front desk staff is helpful and polite.  

The breakfast area is small and very congested, as is the usual in hotels, but this one seemed maybe more than usual.  There was a good variety of food: sausage, eggs, waffles, danishes, toast, and lots more.  The front desk staff puts cookies out in the evening, and the girl on the weekend even saved cookies for us when she knew we wouldn't be back before they were gone.

Internet was quick and easy to use, and they have a printer downstairs if you need to print something (we needed to print our wedding vows LOL).

All in all, a good stay, and we'd probably stay here again.  The only drawback is the size of the room.

I had been prepared to write a review stating this hotel to be passable: quite dated and ill-repaired but clean with new linens. Did you catch the past tense of that sentence? Good for you. This morning a cockroach called out of the drain in the shower (which is stained and I would guess is 30+ years old). I commend Andrey in getting a picture of his cockroach, I was too busy screaming. Having an infestation is an unforgivable offense in a hotel and automatic loss of all stars. Book early and book elsewhere!

Gross. Holes and stains in carpet and ceiling, small rooms with odd sliding, difficult to work pocket doors for restrooms, loud AC. Tiny cramped breakfast room. Unapologetic staff cuts off bfast at 9:30 and offered no discount due to poor room conditions.

This hotel should be a last resort!!!!
This place has roaches, loud night shift, hookers that pester you walking into the hotel asking you for money so they can smoke crack with you (not joking!!! I had one named honey ask me for money so she could buy a rock and smoke it before she wanted to you know the rest) the breakfast lounge is half assed at best and the women in charge is a nazi with the ac. She likes to turn both of them on to freezing and has an attitude when it gets to the point where you need to bring a sweater to stay worm. The beds are uncomfortable I've slept on more comfortable coaches... There is more but I'm about to check out so don't want to spend any more time in this hotel writing this review

Because of its location within close proximity of The Ringling, the fact that it is inexpensive, is rather well maintained, it's clean, the room are nicely appointed and has a friendly staff; I'm a fan of it. Though some of the amenities like the pool don't amount to much, the fact that included breakfast tends to be sub-par, rather wimpy, hardly worth bothering with, and breakfast area being somewhat small and cramped, I've found those faults to be overcome by what is good about the place.

Sleep Inn is also located off the highway, the area being quiet, safe, secure and with ample parking. So, if your aim is visit The Ringling and you won't be spending much time in your room or the hotel, this place is a pretty good bet for you.
