Comfortable room with fridge, hair dryer and free wifi. The location is not close to the beaches but is just a quick drive away. Located in shopping center & restaurant heavy area of Lakewood Ranch - very convenient.

Enjoyed our stay very much! The hotel is beautiful and inviting. We had a lovely view outside our window, made possible after a special request to David Dean, the front desk clerk. In fact, David couldn't have been more friendly, more helpful, or more happy to accommodate. Staff like David Dean makes the difference between a satisfactory stay and an... More

I really can't think of anything bad to say about this hotel. The hotel was pretty quiet, room was clean, service was outstanding! Free WIFI in room and free HBO. Room came equipped with microwave, mini fridge, hairdryer, iron and ironing board (in closet). Spacious room with two queen-sized beds. Location was great - in Lakewood Ranch area - lots... More

Excellent and lovely place to stay. As an Interior Designer who used to work in the Hotel and Resort industry Internationally I have to say that this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at for the price level that was charged. Lovely Southern Charm mixed with modern Aquatic theme, more than typical of the area! Very comfortable... More

Breakfast in the morning (free) was good...eggs, sausage, french toast sticks, fresh fruit, toast, OJ and cranberry juice. More then enough tables. Pool was refreshing. Convenient to I-75.

Have stayed at this HI many times, and continue to return. The Alamo restaurant is excellent. The rooms are very clean and up todate. The staff is exceptional, friendly, and really care about the patron. Try this location you will not be disappointed.

By far the best Holiday Inn I've stayed in... Clean, beautifully decorated rooms and professional staff at the front counter! We loved the large outdoor pool and hot tub/spa with a wonderful view of Florida nature. We will return!

We have visited Sarasota on several occasions but this was our first time at Lakewood Ranch and we were impressed by the area. The hotel's lobby was very open and spacious and we checked into our room early. We had a lake view room which was very pleasant, clean and comfortable. The only problem we encountered was the noise from... More

I work in the hotel business and know a great one when I see it. The moment you walk in you notice the cleanliness of the lobby, you pass a housekeeper in the hallway and they always say hello with a smile, and the service in the restaurant is outstanding. The real star of the show however is the Front... More
