Just spent two nights at this inn and we were very pleased with our choice. Great value, clean comfortable rooms and friendly front of house staff, in particular Feank who gave is information about places to eat & visit locally. A great place to stop off on your travels.

We have stayed here when we visit nearby family. In general, it is a hotel in need of an update and some freshening up.- that's the cosmetics. Green bananas and less than mediocre breakfast, that's the food. Some of the staff are OK, but there is a fellow there at the front desk that must have missed the class on... More

My sister and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Ruskin, it was a pretty good experience, but we did have a few problems. The first day/night was good, although our toilet stopped up, and continued to stop up during our stay. The first day breakfast was awesome, the second day there was nothing hot to eat, there had been... More

Thank you for your comments. A review of your stay was conducted and indeed, the hotel had a plumbing issue that was due to a county main line breaking. It was repaired, but unfortunately did affect our guest's use of of their toilets. I also must apologize for the breakfast issue which has been addressed and corrected. We strive for... More

My family and I spent 3 days at this hotel with other families for a sports tournament and we were all quite unhappy. The pool was filled with dead ants and no one in the hotel went in the whole weekend. We ended up with a smoking room which we did not mind too much but the blanket on the... More

We apologize for any issues. However, there were 30 rooms of hockey players and we did our best to satisfy all requests and needs. Your toilet issue was due in part to over use by too many people. Our maintenance staff had no problem the next morning flushing the toilet. To say your phone was not working is odd since... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while on a business trip. The room was largely ok but the inner edge of tub in the bathroom was covered in mold - yukk! The toilet was running and I requested the staff to get it fixed within an hour of my arrival at 6 pm or so. They sent someone... More

We apologize for your problems while staying with us. However, a few areas in your comm ents need to be addressed. First, we have never served Strawberrys at breakfast. We offer two selections that are delivered fresh every other day. We never would serve spoiled fruit. Our hot breakfast bar has always been a rave of our guest's. Your room... More

I am a Priority Club Gold card member and I have stayed at dozens of Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Express hotels over the past several years. This hotel by far is superior for the value. I was recognized as a member at check-in, given a very nice goody bag, and the whole check-in experience was far better than other... More

There is not much in the way of accommodations to choose from in the Sun City Center area, and sadly, the Ruskin Holiday Inn Express is probably one of the best options. I think they know they have a captive audience, and this is reflected in the service. We stayed here recently while attending golf school in the area. This... More

My wife and I were visiting friends in Sun City. We did not have a hotel reservation but stopped at the Holiday Inn to see what kind of rates they had. The girl at the desk gave me a good rate and we decided to stay. We were impressed with the rooms. They all have fridges and a really good... More
