We spent 4 nights here and we're very happy. Nice room in a good location ideal to explore the area. We ate 1 night in the restaurant which was fine. What more could we say.....? Sarasota is a wonderful area with great beaches, good shopping and lots of culture. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked this hotel through Priceline. Location and reviews were very positive. Upon checking in we were greeted by friendly staff and I must say the hotel lobby looked great and we had super expectations. Our room was on the top floor and when we opened the door we were hit by a mildew smell and the smell of what... More

We stayed here for a weekend trip to Sarasota for Orioles spring training. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. It was also very conveniently located just off the highway so just about everything was within a 15-20 minute drive.

I am very disappointed with this hotel. Little things mean a lot when you're traveling, especially on business. The fitness center doesn't open until 5:30 am. Those of you that have read my reviews know that I have to get up very early and believe that hotel fitness centers should be open 24/7 - period. Also, there is no coffee... More

Hi, I am very sorry we did not meet your expectations. I am confused about several of the things you listed. Our fitness room is open 24 hours a day and accessible with your room key. My apologies if you were not told this. We do not put coffee out until between 6 and 6:30am, when our full service restaurant... More

Staff was friendly--from housekeepers to front desk. David was especially helpful when making the reservation. Room was spotless. Only suggestions--brighter lighting in bathroom and complimentary breakfast.

Having just disembarked from a week cruise, the room seemed overly large. Check in was quick and easy. The original plan was for two nights, but we needed to leave early. No problem from the front office as they cancelled the second night. A wedding party booked a number of rooms, but we never heard them. Breakfast was just ok.

You can't blame the staff for paper thin walls. That's why we bring earplugs. This seems to be a newer hotel, and the lobby was very welcoming. Sometimes it ends in the lobby, but in the case of this hotel it did not. I did not get the gentleman's name at the desk, but he set a very professional tone.... More

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.
