We loved seeing the rocking chairs on both sides of the front door. The lobby also has a "Welcome In" feeling. The lobby has a sitting area that is great for just catching up with people. The check-in process was nice and efficient and friendly! The room was nice and spacious. Temperature was great. The bed and pillow selection (soft... More

We stayed here for a week over New Years, as we have done each year since 2005. As always, we found the staff in both the hotel and restaurant to be extremely personable and efficient. Our room was immaculate, housekeeping was prompt and efficient and we made good use of the fitness and pool facilities. We throughly enjoyed our stay,... More

This is a smart looking hotel in Sarasota by the Lakewood Ranch community. King size bed was super comfortable. Decor is current and trendy. Room is spacious. Bathroom was decent sized. Water pressure was decent as well. Room comes with fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Entertainment includes movies on demand on a decent flat panel TV. In house restaurant serves... More

Great, clean rooms and wonderful king bed. Spacious room with sitting area and desk. Stayed three nights and was very pleased. Excellent location with lots of dining/shopping very nearby. On site restaurant is a great value (and good) for breakfast but would choose a local place for dinner.

The staff, rooms and onsite restaurant were outstanding! The entire facility was very clean, well maintained, updated and pleasant. I would highly recommended including the breakfast with your reservation and going to the Alamo Steakhouse restaurant for dinner, too!

I stayed from October 24 - 28 for the Ultimate National Championships. This location was perfect for access to the Polo Fields where the teams were playing. The king size room I had was extremely nice, had a small refridgerator and microwave with a desk. My only complaint about the room was the very small pillows on the bed. I... More

I always like staying here when I visit the Lakewood Ranch area. This location is very convenient to traveling all around Sarasota/Bradenton area. Lots of dining/shopping near by in downtown Lakewood Ranch and University Parkway. Very nice staff. Love the amenities, including the onsite restaurant.

JPaterson00, Thanks so much for your kind comments regarding the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch. We appreciate you staying with us. I too like our restaurant, maybe too much as I have put on a few pounds since I started there nearly 4 years ago! I might have to opt for the salmon ceasar salads rather than the bison burgers and...

As a business traveler, I continually pick Holiday Inn properties for their consistency and repeatable quality. This property lived up to my expectations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The only complaint (weak as it is) is that the television directory did not include the NFL channel for the Thursday night NFL games. Breakfast was included with... More

The stay started off bad. When we first went into the room, we noticed that the bedsheets had NOT been changed, yet the bed had been made. After requesting clean sheets, the manager on duty just gave us a different room. He was very friendly and did the best he could to quickly solve the issue. The hotel is clean... More

We spent the weekend at the Holiday Inn for a local soccer tournament. The hotel lobby was clean and attractive. Our room was clean; however, very small. The people at the front desk were not the least bit friendly or welcoming; they seemed unhappy and I never saw them smile. The worst part of our visit was the breakfast. We... More
