I booked this hotel using Priceline for my 1st time. Usually I don't use Priceline because it only guarantees one bed, and we have kids. It was just my son and I for a baseball tourney, so I went for it and got a great price. It is rather remote, but not too far from Sarasota. My daughter decided to... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice in the last week and will be back there tonight.

This upscale concept is misleading because of it's location (right next to the Sarasota airport), but don't let that fool you. The cleanliness and amenities offered at this Holiday Inn are impressive, and the food at the Sporting News Grill is exceptionally good (especially the crab cake sandwich). My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the designer pool area, and the outdoor cabanas... More

Moved to this hotel after leaving our beach front hotel during Tropical Storm Debby. Picked it for the indoor pool and kids suite. We were pleasantly surprise how nice this hotel was.

We stayed here while visiting in Bradenton. We were very impressed by its modern decor, well-appointed guest rooms and friendly staff. The property looks very new, and the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, with lovely granite and above-the-counter sinks in the bathroom. Even though we were across the street from the airport, we didn't hear any plane noise... More

We ended up at the Holiday Inn Sarasota Airport when the hotel we had booked at Siesta Key lost our reservation during Memorial Day weekend 2012.
