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

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

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

We spent a long weekend in Sarasota visiting our daughter. We chose this hotel by default because the hotels nearer to her college and downtown were either over budget or already booked. We were very happy with our choice. The room was spacious and very comfortable with free Wi-Fi. We were on a very quiet floor and no disturbing outside... More

Starting with Keith at the front desk who does an excellent job in welcoming platinum members, i found this property to be one of the better holiday inns that I have recently stayed. Clean well maintained nice rooms Close to restaurants and a brand new mall Alamo grill in the hotel, good meals, good service
