Chad Spencer has been extremely helpful during my stay here over the past few days. Although I've had a few complications, Chad has gone above and beyond his duty to try to make my every aspect of this stay exceptional. He is an exemplary employee, and Holiday Inn should be proud to have such a quality person working for them.

It is a nice hotel, but the elevator is often wet inside from people coming from the pool. Lots and lots of kids. I have stayed here before. The staff didn't really or wasn't able to do much about the running up and down past the rooms. That being said, the staff is really nice and I wish they were... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I tend to agree that it is frustrating to see the kids running around and quite often loud. However, through the years I have found the scenario the same throughout the United States. The kids are excited and it does get loud at times. On occasion, I have had the... More

I stayed 1 night at the Holiday Inn Sarasota and did not have much expectations...so I was very pleasantly surprised to find a nice, recently renovated, design hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Although the sound does carry through the atrium, we try to keep noise to a minimum when possible. Our housekeeping Department is the best in the many years I have been operating hotels. Periodically, we might fail but those comments are rare because we stay on top of everything everyday.... More

beautiful decor, nice indoor pool, nice layout, no internet, good night sleep considering the proximity to the airport, no breakfast included which was a disappointment upon finding out, housing keeping was really bad.
