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

Dragon Boat team stayed a couple of nights. Very comfortable bed. Room was nice and chilly..just they way I like it. Micro & mini fridge was great. 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.

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

When I work in the area I always stay here even though a typical Holiday Inn is not my preference. This hotel is always very clean and the customer service is excellent. Even though it is close to the expressway I have never had any issues with outside noise. It is a very short drive to downtown from here and... More

This little hotel in Sarasota Florida was just about like going to a luxury hotel. What a welcome respite to return to after 16 - 20 hours a day, 7 days a week while on assignment for a few months several years ago.
