We have stayed here a few times, and never been disappointed. As before, we had a suite, this time on the 4th floor, which was better than the one we previously had, which was on the ground floor. The suites are next to the elevators, and the noise is greater in the ground floor suite for some reason. Suites are...

From the minute we checked in until our checkout the service and facility was outstanding. The choice of firmness of pillows is a great touch. Certainly gives HIE a plus over other hotels.

This is a convenient no frill but clean and comfortable place to stay in you are ever in Sarasota. Sarasota is a pricey town with very few budget options so this Holiday Inn is a great find with easy access to I-75 and only about 5 miles from the beach.
