"The hotel itself was very nice and well maintained. It is convenient to a lot around Sarasota. The staff is freindly, helpful, and down to earth. We felt very much at home for our two week stay and found absolutely nothing to fault in our stay. This hotel treats the staff well, and they in turn treat the guests well. Would stay again without hesitation."

"Went down for a quick weekend get away. Fell in love with the area. The hotel is perfectly on the beach quiet and can be a party at the pool if you want. A quick walk into the very cute town for shopping and food. The hotel staff were so nice. I cal this hotel my personal get away place. I dont share it with many because I like to keep it as my own secret."
- Eiligna

"We were so impressed by the club suite. It has a small kitchen and had all the necessary tools and appliances. The room was new and very clean. The bathroom was large and had plenty of storage. Both kitchen and bathroom have granite countertops. The bed was excellent and the linens were very clean. We had a lagoon view and enjoyed it from the terrace. The beach was fantastic. This is the second time we have been here in a month and will always stay at this hotel everytime we're in Longboat Key. We love the quiet location and this is the next best thing to the beaches in the Bahamas! You will not regret a single moment here."
- Aldrin and Family

"I stayed at the Siesta Resort for a long weekend with my girlfriend and we loved it. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. VERY ROMANTIC LOCATION :) The staff was super friendly and recommended a couple great restaurants within walking distance. We wish we could live at the Siesta Beach Resort!"

These hotels are just few of the many hotels available in Sarasota. Some may be pricey but it sure does give the best pleasure and vacation you'll ever have. Hotels and other accommodations in Sarasota varies greatly according to its situation (whether it on a beachfront or a bit distant) and location to vital utilities like the airport, hospital, restaurants, attractions, and other things necessary for tourists.

Sarasota beach hotels are almost all keyed to be near the beautiful beaches and other nice places to go. If ever the accommodation is way out of your budget, then I suggest you should try having to choose rentals, apartments, or rooms at Sarasota.
