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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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!

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
