After check in, I had friends that had driven up almost an hour to see me, and we set in the lovely lobby lounge area, that had a beautiful waterfall, leather couches, lots of comfy chairs. Had a lovely visit there. My room was a wonderful clean, king size bed, that made you drop right into dreamland. The bathroom and... More

Large bathroom with separate shower, plenty of toiletries. We ate in the Alamo bar in site, food and prices were good. Breakfast was self service and very good value with excellent choice.... More

My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway. Our room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was a bit outdated. The pool is a good size and the hot tub sits under a nice pergola. They did not offer a free buffet but rather a voucher for $20 at their old-timey restaurant. Ordering off the menu was much... More

This is expensive, but a nice place to stay. Plenty of parking. Good looking lobby. Friendly service. Clean and cute rooms. The water pressure is great which I have noticed is lacking at many places in Florida. We added breakfast for a modest fee. The breakfast is good and has what you can expect, but I found the service not... More

3 day stay at end of Holiday. Excellent location for Tampa, Sarasota, St Petes etc all within easy drive. Nice rooms, free Wi Fi, clean and excellent buffett breakfast taken in the steakhouse attached to the hotel. The breakfast buffett is $9.99 per person or you can include in room price so you can work out which is better value... More

A/C excruciatingly loud based on 3 rooms (2 couples travelling, 1 changed rooms due to noise), sounds like construction equipment next to your head. Poolside rooms are loud due to drunk people in pool area. Pool small. Otherwise nice 3-star. Decent restaurant though service unprofessional including wrong billing.

I love Holiday Inn; stay a lot for business travel. Took my family to FL for a Family Wedding last week in Bradenton. Needed a good location with easy access to the venue and things to do in the day before the evening reception. Hotel access is great; room, lobby and bathroom are starting to show some wear. Does not... More

Great price for a beautiful hotel. Without the sign would never have guessed it was a holiday inn - looked much more upscale. If possible, ask for 5th floor - room was spacious and had a good view of the surrounding area, but not of the beach. No tub, but who sits in a tub in a hotel unless you... More

We arrived after 8:00pm and the pool and hot tub were still open. The area was clean and the hot tub was nice and hot. We even tried out the excersice room and... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights on a recent business trip. The lobby and rooms are spectacular. Huge bathrooms!! This feels like a 5 star hotel. The service and personnel are friendly & helpful. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Sarasota/Lakewood Ranch. Close to shopping and more restaurants than I could count.
