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... More

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... More

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... More

Michelle and coworker were outstanding. they were business like, professioal and took care of us like we were family. If you need two hundred charac ters to tell how great these folks were you have a problem.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel when visiting for a graduation. The hotel was pretty full. The parking lot sometimes only had a few spots left. Assuming the hotel was pretty booked I was pleasantly surprised with how quiet it was at night. The room and lobby were both very clean and I slept like a rock. The bed... More

As a gold member of the rewards program I was very disappointed. No welcome as such, no welcome bag or bonus points. In addition the available amenities were not explained as far as fitness club, pool, or dining. In all the other HI properties I have ever stayed in, the showerhead was wonderful. This one was terrible. Thankfully it was... More
