We loved EveryOne working there and everyThing...except the breakfast. Everyday SaME food in buffet. I REALLY regretted buying 3 days of buffet breakfast in Advance. All the Employees were amazing though. We had 3 little ones. We didn’t have Any complains. Kids enjoys hanging by the pool & hot tub. But were kinda scared of the steam room. Every night my kids enjoyed running around through the hallways before bed. Room was clean. Outdoor fire pit was a cozy place to chill. Overall Really good experience. Thank You!
I originally booked a room at this hotel thru the Holiday Inn website. When I got the confirmation email I noticed and error. I went to the website and clicked on the box for correcting problems and wound up with GetaRoom. I figured that was ok and got a confirmation email back from them. But, the day before we were headed to the hotel I called just to check. They had never heard of me and had no reservation in my name. Getaroom had taken my money but never made my reservation with the Holiday Inn! I had to book a room to have someplace to sleep at the airport. The room was fine, restaurant so-so. I took my rental car back the afternoon before so I would not have to deal with it in the morning. It took them over a half an hour to come pick me up after I called. This place is very difficult to find. The directions are pretty vague. There are a lot of hotels around this airport. Next time we fly out of there we will pick a different one even tho we have lots of stays with HI.
I’m not one to usually write a review, but we’ve stayed in this hotel for the last 4 yrs for our yearly trip to Sarasota. it’s always clean, staff is friendly and their restaurant has delicious food! Compton has been our waiter for the last 3yrs and his service and professionalism are super! I highly recommended this hotel.
I stayed 2 nights here with different reservations. I had an audition in town when I checked in they said they had no more double bed rooms but a king size room with a roll out bed would be provided. Around 8pm the roll out bed had not shown up and I called the front desk. They said they had run out of them and sorry. The lady hanged up on me and then picked up had me on hold for 7 min until a guy with not a good mood answered and said the same thing. I asked if they were gonna give me a solution and they sent 2 extra bed sheets that was it. I would not stay here again!

Again, please accept our sincere apologizes regarding your disappointment with your recent stay. As we discussed earlier, please be advised that room-type preference cannot be confirmed through bid sites such as Hotwire. We were sold out of double queen rooms; and Hotwire does not stop bookings during that occurrence.
The check in and check out experience was positive. The staff was very nice and accommodating. However the restaurant and bar was closed with plumbing issues and all that was offered for breakfast was prepackaged cornflakes and muffins. I feel that the hotel could have easily handled this with an 3rd party service of some kind as a contingency. The air conditioning in the room was fine however the hallway was eaxtremly hot. I arrived very late and left midmorning. The front desk was very nice and let me place my carry on in a secure location until I could swing by and pick it up.
