An hotel with a business orientation but relaxed. Reunions seem to be a speciality. Very nice lounge in foyer. We had problems in getting a steak done medium rare and their definitionof this, plus some awkwardness by the staff, gave us a dinner to forget, compounded by a mistake on the bill in charging me for one more glass of...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a local wedding on October 16th and we noted that they were #1 Holiday Inn. The hotel IS nice and clean, but the staff, from the front desk agent who made me wait until she finished her personal phione call, to the bartender who acted like we were bothering him, and... More

We stayed here based on previous reviews, and found it to be probably the best stay we had in our visit to Florida - so much so that we arranged to re visit it on our return trip from Sanibel to Orlando. The facilities and decor were excellent, and the staff very friendly and helpful. It is not in the... More

This is a nice friendly up-to-date Holiday Inn. The new decor is not what I would have chosen, but it works for a one-night stay. It is sort of retro to the '70s with olive, avocado and powder blue. Front desk was friendly and efficient. As others remark, nice new TVs, free wireless internet, nice pool area. Room was impeccably... More

We are truly saddened by your disappointing stayat our Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch. We do our best exceed guest expectations in the hotel and in the Alamo Restaurant. We had a full hotel and a large webbing party in house that were not confined to one area of the hotel. The fact that we sold all of our rooms did... More

I chose this hotel because of other Trip Advisor reviews. Most Sarasota area hotels in February were on the more expensive side, but this hotel had a decent price. No breakfast was included, but the nice room, updated appearance and refreshing decor made up for it. It is about 20 minutes from the beaches and downtown, but we were right... More
