Our go to hotel when in Sarasota. Not near downtown, so we have to drive. We think it is worth the little inconvenience. Rooms are huge with all the expected touches of a first class Holiday Inn. Excellent staff, we've been there at least 6 times and recommended this property to at least 12 out-of-town visitors. Does get sold out,...

This Holiday Inn is a great value. The room is spacious, clean, quiet and the bed and pillows are superior to most hotels in its class. The bathroom was up-to-date, spotless with upscale amenities. The staff is super friendly. All in all, a fantastic stay.

This Holiday Inn is very clean, and the staff is very friendly. Rooms were very clean, and beds were comfortable. They seem to follows the same rules and regulations as most of other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at: "clean, affordable, friendly staff". I stayed here 2 days for a work conference. The meeting rooms were comfortable and there was ample...

When we arrived we thought "oh no" the hotel is full of teenagers running around everywhere and using the lifts as a fair ground ride with little parental control. It was another one of those large groups on some kind of sporting activity for a few days ... great! (Just wish hotels would notify folk on booking). We have experienced...

Usually, a Holiday Inn is something pretty reliable. I didn't realize when I booked that it is pet friendly.....meaning six barking dogs in a room!!! Hair dryer did not work. Tub faucet dripped all night. A/C was moldy, setting off my allergies. No breakfast. Worst part ---- beds were hard as a rock. They would have been ok with a...

We had friends staying in Siesta Key for a week, however since we were only going for 3 days we were unable to rent a condo on the beach. I found this Holiday inn to only be a few miles away from the beach location. We only stayed at the hotel to sleep so we did not have much interaction...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days before our trip to the beach resort to stay for a week. After the 3 days we checked-in at a Lido Beach resort. We had a nice clean room at Holiday Inn. The pool is small but after July 4th nobody there to use it except us. Next to the pool...

Traveling for a sporting event--hotel was clean and well located. Beds were rather comfy. Having mini fridge and microwave in room was a huge plus. The only thing that was weak was the AC in the room which made the room feel more humid than it should have. Otherwise, was impressed that this was a Holiday Inn--a nice surprise.

The meeting rooms are comfortable, and provide enough room for business events. The plus is there is a restaurant on the premises, that is convenient for having time after events to grab a lunch or dinner!
