I booked a business trip on short notice, and ended up with the Holiday Inn Sarasota - Lakewood Ranch. The ratings were favorable, but I was skeptical, thinking back to trips with my parents years ago, and staying at Holiday Inn motels. My first impression was, "Wow, this isn't the Holiday Inn I remember!" The lobby is large and warmly... More

I had a one night stay here for a business trip. The front desk staff was great, the room was impeccably clean, I loved the layout of the bathroom, it had a walk in shower which was very roomy and absent the normal dingy shower curtains you find in a tub. The complimentary breakfast was one of the better ones... More

Clean rooms and terrific staffs. The staffs (front desks and restaurants) are super nice and helpful. Onsite restaurant is super convenience for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Close proximity shopping malls and restaurants. Business center is convenience. Pool and fitness looks updated and clean, although we did not use. We definitely will go back.

Nice small hotel for anyone doing business or visiting family in Lakewood Ranch. Clean, updated rooms and terrific, helpful staff. Small restaurant and bar in the lobby is a good addition. Close proximity to new shopping mall and countless restaurants.

While completing my doctorate, I have stayed here probably 10 different times or more. Every room has a fridge and a microwave. It is new, clean and quiet. It is a perfect place for me to relax after a day of class! The toiletries are bath and body works (a big plus), and I believe all of them have showers... More

Our room overlooked the pool area and lake. We did not use the outdoor pool or hot tub. The hotel is not far from a huge mall and... More

Located conveniently towards the I75; clean; cozy wall paintings which were nice to look at; fast internet service; I was satisfied, even though we just needed a quick place to sleep over and continue traveling in the morning towards our next destination

Conveniently located off the interstate, our room was very clean. Very welcoming, friendly employees. Location is spot on... close to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Overall stay was great, I would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for your review. I am so glad they were able to save your bottle of wine. Sounds like a great team effort. I appreciate your comment on our great location. The new UTC Mall has certainly confirmed that when it opened on October 16, 2014. With Capital Grill, Cheesecake Factory, Brio Italian Restaurant, Kona Grill and of course... More
