Sarasota is a popular beach town on the Golf Cost, in Florida. It’s not a big town but it’s considered the cultural center of West Central Florida and has a vibrant arts community. The restaurants and shops complete the atmosphere and make Sarasota a lovely place for a vacation. As it happens to all popular vacation destinations, finding cheap hotels in Sarasota can be a chore, but it’s also a fun activity.

Sarasota is a cultural city, so visiting the numerous museums is a must. The Circus Museum is a unique experience, complete with a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus (yes, you can see the tents, the performers and the workers). The Sarasota Jungle Garden is filled with interesting plants. The downtown area is filled with offices and upscale condominiums, surrounded by an upscale shopping area. Of course, the beaches are the main reason why tourists flock here. The Siesta Key Beach has the cleanest and whitest sand in the world. It’s perfect for families but it’s a great option for those looking to spend an active time on the beach, as well.

If you are looking for cheap hotels in Sarasota, it’s a good idea to avoid the downtown area. Also, try not to stay very close to the beach either. An inn or a motel is a good choice if you are not looking for upscale accommodation. Also, mid-range hotels can be good choices, especially if they are not in the popular tourist areas. The accommodation close to the airport also offers quick access to the beaches and is affordable.

Some of the budget options in Sarasota include: Super 8 Sarasota (close to the airport, close to the beaches, pool, free breakfast, free internet, TV, microwave, fridge), Knights Inn Sarasota (free breakfast, free internet, pool, close to the airport, close to the beaches) and AmericInn Hotel & Suites of Sarasota (room service, conference room, non smoking rooms, coffee maker, internet, TV, microwave).
