I was surprised I was in a Holiday Inn. I went here for a seminar and everything was as it should be. The lobby has been renovated and I recommend this place if you need to be in Sarasota! The location was fine for what I needed and there were a number of decent restaurants nearby.

This is a nice facility. They have ONE jacuzzi suite and it's pretty spectacular. It's on the top floor, on a corner at the end of the hall and the jacuzzi is IN THE BEDROOM. The living/dining area is very spacious. The bed was luxurious. There's also a weird shower-closet type thing that you'll just have to see for yourself....

Last week I had friends fly in from out of town and I was showing them around Sarasota. We decided to stop by the Alamo Steakhouse for a few drinks. I was so impressed with the customer service and happy hour specials that my friends and I returned the following evening. The bartender (Bruno), and the manager on duty (I...

This hotel was chosen because of its location, near a multi-day racing event I was competing in, and budget-wise price. It was an excellent choice that I would book again in a minute. Rooms attractive and clean with a mini-refridge. Service excellent at the desk and in the adjacent restaurant. Lots of good quality, friendly and inexpensive restaurants (not chains)...

We are so sorry we did not exceed your expectations. It is difficult to get a rollaway into a room with 2 beds so we don't recommend it. I am sorry it was not presented to you correctly or professionally. We would like to have more details on your stay. If you get a chance, please call our GM at...

Couldn't find anything wrong with this Holiday Inn except that it was far from the airport. Otherwise everything was great. We went to visit my brother in law who was in hospice. The breakfasts were very good with a large selection which was a help for us. People were friendly.

Thanks faintruly44 We appreciate your feedback. Yes, we are 7 miles from Sarasota/ Bradenton Airport and about an hour from Tampa. The taxi service in the area is pretty reliable so that is probably the most efficient way to get to us. Please come back to see us!

Nice property in Lakewood Ranch area, close to restaurants, shopping, and the interstate. Hard to find anything to eat after 10pm though, and it was a Friday night when I checked in. Hard to tell the differences of rooms on the website do ask.
