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.

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

We recently stayed 3 nights at this hotel using points. This appeared to be a newer hotel. The hotel is not far from the highway but we didn't experience any highway noise. 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
