As usual we were early checking in which pretty common for us. They just finished cleaning the room because it was booked up solid and very busy and that is always a good sign of a good hotel.

We checked in late and were not treated fairly by the night desk clerk and were quoted the highest rate available. The good was the breakfast and the lady running the breakfast really had pride in her work, was friendly, and treated guests right. The bad was that we were not treated right by any of the desk clerks that... More

This hotel looks nice, but that's about it. We had one of the worst experiences that we've ever had in a hotel. We met my parents here so they could see their grandson a few days, and I wish we'd picked a different hotel. The first night we were there my son had an accident on the bed, so we... More

This is a GREAT hotel if you're visiting the area for either lacrosse, baseball or visiting Siesta Key (15min easy drive). We came in for the weekend for a lacrosse tournament at Lakewood Ranch and we were very pleased with our choice of staying here versus closer to the fields. The rooms are VERY clean! The hotel itself is VERY... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The room was exceptionally clean and the staff were very helpful. Only negatives were uncontrollable, our room faced the pool which on the weekend was extremely noisy until the 10PM closing, if we stay again we will request a room facing the rear.
