Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Sarasota Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Sarasota, FL discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Sarasota hotel for each day and each star rating category.

When to Visit Sarasota, Florida

With its humid subtropical climate, Sarasota boasts warm weather year-round. For prime beach weather, plan your trip during the spring or fall when temperatures usually stay in the mid or upper 80s and storms are relatively infrequent.

If you're hankering for hot weather, the summer is also a good choice. Temperatures typically top out in the 90s, but thunderstorms are much more common. If you're planning a trip during the summer or fall, be sure to keep an eye on the Atlantic hurricane forecast.

If your visit falls during the winter, you'll enjoy temperatures in the 70s and fairly dry skies. Because the winter offseason tends to be too cool for swimming in the ocean, you'll generally find low rates on hotels.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Sarasota, FL:
