Courtyard in Lakewood Ranch is an ideal hotel to stay for a variety of reasons: 1) Location is right off I75 North/South 2) Is minutes away by drive or walk to dining and shopping places 3) Very quiet location with very little noise from outside 4) Staff at hotel is EXCEPTIONAL and accommodate your requests.

My room was large and bright with a gracious spacious bath. The bed and pillows and towels comfortable and spotless. The in- room coffee maker was the best I've had in any hotel - ever! While the facility itself was meticulously maintained throughout from entrance to lobby to rooms and outdoor gathering areas , the amenities were a bit disappointing....

We had one night stay for a Lacrosse tournament that was near. The price was higher than I would expect for a Courtyard Hotel, but many other hotels in the area where sold out. The room was really large, and I will keep it in mind for next time we travel with both teens that our Family of four can...

We actually enjoyed our stay despite the late night noises but for the price it should have been nicer. There was no in-room safe and breakfast was not included in the price. The loud voices and slamming door noises between 1 and 3 AM were probably due to spring break revelers which is hard to hold against the management, but...

Location, location, location. Walk to a dozen restaurants! Decent bartender with fair pour drinks. Very clean rooms and we had a great corporate rate. Wake up calls we're to the minute and check-in/out was a breeze. Overall, a very nice hotel with an accommodating staff in a great location. It's hard for me to give 5 stars to a hotel...

Stayed 4 nights while visiting Sarasota area. This is a new property - everything seems new and fresh. The hotel is located just off I-75 at University. The rooms are the best we've seen at a Courtyard. The room was very clean and generous size. The room has a small frig and a small microwave, plus a sofa and chair....

Above average Courtyard experience. This is a nice property with well groomed outdoor areas. It also has a "bistro" which serves breakfast, snacks, Starbucks coffee and doubles as a bar in the evening. Staff was friendly and professional.

When the hotel isn't full, don't put your guests in the room next to the maintenance room. There was so much noise I honestly looked out the window, thinking helicopters were flying by. OK, so I got that out of my system. The room was comfortable, everything worked ok, and staff was friendly. Hotel is well-located, just off University, near...

I was visiting a friend in Sarasota and selected this hotel. Easy to find, great location, right across street from mall, and perfect location of key cross streets. The hotel looks and feels brand new. Very clean and excellent staff.
