Lantern Inn & Suites, Sarasota
The rooms were nice. The location was good and on the same street as many attractions. The property has no amenities, no ice machine, vending machines, not even detergent for sale in the laundry area. If you only need somewhere to sleep minus any conveniences then this is good.

Well done renovations!!
I've stayed here in the past (in an outdated room) and saw some parts of the building being renovated, during my stay this time I stayed in one of the renovated rooms, it's was a beautiful, large room with a small fridge, TV and good size bathroom. It was better than some of the well known hotels I've stayed at

Ants in my pants
My wife was bitten by something 2 nights in a row while asleep. After the second night, while sitting in bed in the morning, she felt something biting her and we found an ant. The black ants were coming in from outside. They were prompt at moving us to another room and exterminating. The day of check out my wife found drug paraphernalia hidden in the ironing board cover. When we checked out, the manager was very apologetic and told us someone had been kicked out, with police presence, of that same room 3 days prior. Seemed to be a quiet neighborhood area with locals and nice restaurants in the area. Anna Maria's Oyster Bar gets 10 thumbs up! The people who worked at the tiki bar next to pool were nice. The pool was heated and nice as well. Manager promised an adjustment on the bill, but we haven't received anything yet. Rooms were newly remodeled and pretty, but not sure if we would stay there again.

Comfortable rooms
The customer service is amazing, rooms are remodel, spacious, and clean. The only problem we had was that for a family of 5, we had to rent another room. A roller bed would have prevented us from expending more money. But we are definitely coming back. There is plenty of space for one. We have to expend I would suggest roller beds

Clean room. Nice heated pool. Awesome service at the pool bar. Good coffee in the morning – sadly it seems we were late for the breakfast service.
