I am sure most people who stay here are on vacation. I stayed here to start a job before I could move into my new home. Either way, the location is great. The room itself is just fine, but not luxurious or anything. It truly is 5 minutes from downtown, 5-10 from St Armand’s and beaches, and close to anything you could want in Sarasota. It isn’t really a “studio” though- it’s really just a bedroom with a kitchenette (no stove/oven) and bathroom. But the room was comfortable and worked great for me. So if you’re just looking for a place to sleep, it does the trick. The check in/out couldn’t have been easier and Claudia was responsive when I had a question. Good place!
