The hotel had outside entrances to all the rooms. Three floors of rooms and with an elevator for convenience if needed. Heated saltwater pool and was clean....

My family was in Sarasota for my nephew's wedding and we were originally supposed to stay in an AirBnB house. But the owner of the house was running a scam, so we were left without a place to stay 1 week before the wedding. After reading all the positive reviews for the Lantern Inn, we decided to stay there. We...

My wife and I stayed here for a night - just to get away for a quiet and fun weekend. Plus, we had tickets for a play at the Asolo. We would stay here again. Clean, quite, friendly staff - not a chain hotel. The place is a little worn around the edges and does not include a breakfast. Location...

My first surprise was that the nice young lady with the beautiful smile who checked me in happened to be from Thailand as is my partner,we work with our Thai coworkers at his family's Thai restaurant!...

Easy to find. Friendly staff. Stayed in newly renovated room. Double room had king sized beds which were very comfortable. Quiet stay, felt safe. Convenient location to all our sight seeing. Would stay there again, and next time grab a drink at the Tiki Bar.

After reading all rooms were newly refurbished, I booked for one night. We had a very old, rather dirty room, rust on the refrigerator, cigarette burns on the sink, and something dark brown smeared around the toilet tissue holder. At checkin, the desk agent insisted on making a copy of my drivers license. When I ask why, she said it...

During the second week of February 2017, my wife and I had the opportunity to lodge at the Lantern Inn & Suites in Sarasota Florida. This easy to access hotel was located right off of HWY 41 and provided ample parking around the entire building. The front of the building was an attractive tropical décor with very tall palm trees...
