Wife and I stayed for one night here. Had two issues that dropped my rating. First I found hair sticking to the walls of the shower that didn't belong to us. Second the water pressure in the shower was dismal. We were on the top floor, but still. Our room came with a free breakfast buffet. Nothing really to write...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch on a recent business trip to Sarasota. The location was convenient for my meetings. Be aware there is a lot of road construction in the area and getting onto I-75 was slow and tedious. This hotel is a standard 3-star property with the usual amenities. However, there is no in-room safe to...

This is a very convenient location to all of the shopping and dining options in Lakewood Ranch. The hotel was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Both front desk and restaurant staff were very accommodating. Our only criticism was that it had the worst Wi-Fi internet connection I have ever experienced. I would not have been happy had we...

This was a very nice, clean hotel that was in a great location. The steakhouse attached was not my favorite. The Lucky Pelican restaurant located next door was incredible! There were plenty of stores and restaurants nearby.. My favorite destination while staying at this hotel was Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe. It was a beautifully maintained public Beach with a...

Lots of construction in the area. But. the hotel is in a nice location. quiet hotel. Check In was a breeze. On the 3 Rd floor facing the lake. Comfortable beds, had room service the next morning. Felt a little pampered, it was nice for a change.

I stayed here for four nights on business. The hotel is quiet and clean and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was good, both buffet and menu. The restaurant is fine but you couldn't really eat here every night as it's a bit limited.

Some of us remember the Holiday Inn of our youth. The IHG Holiday Inn of today is reborn as a comfortable convenient place to stay. This Sarasota location offers clean and well appointed rooms with the one exception of no in room safe. My IHG status allowed me to enjoy a very large comfortable suite (but no bathtub).The rooms include...

We decided to go to this property as a last minute stay before we welcomed our first child into the world. The hotel was clean. Didn't interact with many staff members but, most were friendly. The room was nice. The pool and spa were clean and nice. The bathroom in the room was the worst part. A few maintenance issues...

We had a company meeting at this Hotel and I can say it went extremely well. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a restaurant connected to the hotel as the food was very good. The hotel itself needs an upgrade and more staff for the restaurant when they have big parties. The pool entrance is badly located...
