“Staff shines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2010

We have recently returned from a trip with a large group that stayed two nights at the Inn.
While the facility was quite ordinary the housekeeping and staff were far from being the same.
Housekeeping was impecable; front deck and reception bent over backwards to make things go smoothly; assistance was available at every turn, from directions to delivery of people to restaurants, etc.
Staff led by Brenda really rocked. Brenda went far out of the norm in delivering our group an experience and not just a hotel stay.
The staff trully get the meaning of customer service and a Disney level.
Thanks, if we are ever back this way again be ready to take our reservations.

Stayed January 2010

The people at this hotel could not have done anymore for us if they had tried when we were there for a " Drum Corps Military Tattoo " in Punta Gorda. They did everything they could to make our visit great. We had a aweful experience on the plane and we were greeted with smiles and checked into our rooms as if we were kings. There were over 65 people to be checked in and they did it very quickly, just like clock work. It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel, as the people were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was excellent with everything from bacon and eggs to cereal. When we needed something Brenda was there for us. They were great and all of us enjoyed our very short visit to Port Charlotte.

Thank you again Brenda and staff.

First of all, the staff is incredible- very helpful and will accomodate you in any way they can. The rooms were lovely- fridge, microwaves... located on a lake, nice pool. A delicious continental breakfast -- The hotel was also in walking distance of a 24h Wal-Mart Super store :) Very convenient :)

I would recomment this hotel to anyone!

We have just returned from a trip for a band Tattoo in Punta Gorda, Florida. Our group was quite large. Brenda and her staff at this Holiday Inn made sure our trip was fantastic experience. We have never had such great service any other place we have stayed during our travels. She went out of her way to make sure we felt comfortable and taken care of. The rooms were very clean and we always had what we needed. The breakfast was great and the staff made sure the food was ready for such a large group. (close to 100 people). I would stay here again anytime. This hotel will be the standard by which we measure our future hotel stays.

Every employee we encountered was very friendly. The free breakfast included eggs, sausage, delicious cinnamon rolls and more. The pillows were fluffy and the towels and sheets were soft. The a/c was comfortable and quiet. The free Internet access was much appreciated. I thought it was wired, but we got wifi to work with no problem. Not the ritz, but a good deal for the money.

We stay here every time we come to Port Charlotte. It is right off the highway,
and a convenient location for seeing everything nearby. The Navigator, #1 Trop Rock venue of 2008, is right down the road, and there is easy access to Punta Gorda and all of the Charlotte Harbor events.
The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast is one of the best we have ever experienced.
The rooms are nice and clean, and the new showerheads are so nice my husband wants to buy one for our home.
We look forward to our weekends away here!
