Internet fast. Free breakfast standard Holiday Inn Express fare, something for everyone. Plenty of parking. Pool and gym are satisfactory. Suite for 4 adults and 2 kids was spacious and clean. Well equipped rooms. Would absolutely be back.

I flew in late and was greeted at the front desk by Sal. To say he gives great customer service is an understatement!! He has gone above and beyond on my trip. He went out of his way to print maps and point out all the places I should try while visiting Sarasota. We also we met DeVore who gave...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and it is always great. It has always been one of my favorites. It is very clean and modern. It has a nice gym and pool. It is near everything.

I stayed here for a 4 night business trip and found the staff very accommodating and the hotel very nice for the price. When I first arrived I discovered that my organization had suggested the incorrect hotel for my reservation.

Overall a friendly staff that was accommodating. Vary bland, dark and uninviting décor..... lines this property, however. Seasonal rates are out of this world in Sarasota! Wow is it inflated even at the dinghy Days Inn across the street. Solid breakfast variety and fairly close to Siesta Key which was nice! Allow plenty of time when trying to get around...

Stayed here on Friday night on our way back from Everglades to Orlando.

Those who have read my previous reviews know that unless a client books me in a hotel of their choice, I stay in budget hotels, and I look for five things: Is it safe? Is it reasonably clean? Is it possible to rest comfortably? Is there good water pressure? Does the internet work easily? With this current hotel, booked by...
