Conveniently located off the interstate, our room was very clean. Very welcoming, friendly employees. Location is spot on... close to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Overall stay was great, I would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for your review. I am so glad they were able to save your bottle of wine. Sounds like a great team effort. I appreciate your comment on our great location. The new UTC Mall has certainly confirmed that when it opened on October 16, 2014. With Capital Grill, Cheesecake Factory, Brio Italian Restaurant, Kona Grill and of course... More

We spent a long weekend in Sarasota visiting our daughter. We chose this hotel by default because the hotels nearer to her college and downtown were either over budget or already booked. We were very happy with our choice. The room was spacious and very comfortable with free Wi-Fi. We were on a very quiet floor and no disturbing outside... More

What a cute place! Nice and clean, not too big, friendly staff! The restaurant offers a nice variety of items at a fair price! The rooms are roomy and comfortable...the pillows are different varieties of hard and soft... The rocking chairs out front are a nice touch!

Starting with Keith at the front desk who does an excellent job in welcoming platinum members, i found this property to be one of the better holiday inns that I have recently stayed. Clean well maintained nice rooms Close to restaurants and a brand new mall Alamo grill in the hotel, good meals, good service

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

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.
