Top tips for finding perfect Sarasota hotel deals

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Sarasota, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Sarasota in August and September.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Sarasota if you stay on a Sunday. The opposite is true for, Thursday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 0 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Sarasota accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Sarasota found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was C$ 76, while the most expensive was C$ 784.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Sarasota for 5 days.
  • Located about an hour from Tampa, on the west coast of Florida, Sarasota is a mix of beautiful beaches, historic landmarks, and cultural activities. If your main reason to visit is to enjoy a sun-soaked vacation by the beach, it is best to stay on one of the Keys, such as Lido Key or Siesta Key, as you’ll be within walking distance to the nearby beaches and won’t have to deal with parking.
  • Siesta Key Beach has a lifeguard on duty all-year round, which is a key factor especially when traveling with children. There you’ll find several accommodation options, from motels (Gulfside Motel) to resorts (Lido Beach Resort).
  • If budget is an issue, it is recommended that you opt for staying on the mainland, where you’ll still be about 15-20 minutes away from the most popular beaches, but for more affordable prices. Hotel Ranola, for instance, is near the main street in Sarasota, and tends to offer cheaper deals.
  • If you want to escape the hassle of the major beach resorts/hotels in Sarasota, as well as the commotion downtown, consider heading to the nearby communities of Nokomis or Venice, which are way less crowded but still within driving distance from all the major attractions.
  • In fact, downtown Sarasota is a great place to be based if you want to experience the art and culture scene of the area, as well as try different foods and be near the buzzing nightlife. The Westin Sarasota is a great affordable option just a couple of blocks from Main Street, where you’ll find great restaurants like Selva and Duval’s Fresh Local Food, but you can also find high-end hotels nearby, such as the Ritz-Carlton.

FAQs when booking a hotel in Sarasota

  • Hotels are safe environments for travellers as long as they properly implement sanitary measures in response to coronavirus (COVID-19). However, we recommend getting in touch with the local authorities regarding safety procedures for hotels in Sarasota. For more advice, please view our information page on what to know about coronavirus (COVID-19) and travel.

  • Lido Beach Resort and Sandcastle Resort at Lido Beach are very popular with users who want to stay within walking distance of Lido key.

  • Hotels on the Keys in Sarasota tend to be very family-friendly, with many featuring swimming pools and kids’ programs. But if you’re looking for an alternative, and even more affordable option, consider staying on the mainland, near fun places where you can take the little ones. The three-star Aloft Sarasota is located right by the Bayfront Park and Marina, and within walking distance to the Five Points Park and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

  • If you’re just passing by or need a last-minute short-term stay near the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, there are a few options: Home2 Suites By Hilton and Hyatt Place are some of the best, with the most affordable being Deluxe Inn and Quality Inn.

  • Hotels in Sarasota’s Siesta Key with free parking include the Siesta Beach House, The Mahi By Sklrp, and Twin Palms at Siesta, among others. Free parking is a great perk as finding parking near the main beaches can be a real struggle, particularly during high season and on weekends.

  • Traveling with an RV in Sarasota is not a problem, as there are various available options. The most high-end RV park would be Sun-Fun, located just to the east off I-75, as it doubles as a full-on resort complete with a fishing lake, a swimming pool, plenty of outdoor sport amenities, and even crafting workshops.

  • After you launch a hotel search on KAYAK, you can refine your research by neighbourhood, which allows you to pick the central Sarasota districts. You can also do a search using the city map to choose a specific location, like Sarasota city centre
