“comfort stay and reasonable priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express after my vcacation at Disney and the Hard Rock Casino. The hotel was less than one half the cost of the Hard Rock Casino, but the service and the comfort was twice as nice at the Holiday Inn Express. My next time going to thw Casino I will be looking for a Holiday inn Express nearby. The room was nice and comfortabe and the norning breakfat was great. Front desk people were very friendly.

I was a guest at the Holiday Inn Express in Venice, FL for 4 days and it was excellent in every way! :
The Staff - pleasant, helpful, friendly,efficient, accommodating, knowledgeable, and fun!

The Room - Clean, neat, great shower, maintenance ladies very friendly and pleasant and..oh! The bed was SOooo comfortable and I loved the different kinds of pillows:>)

The Breakfast - hot, appropriate, all the necessary choices for breakfast, plenty of food & drinks..........the gentleman who was in charge was EXCELLENT~!! He cleaned around the counter the whole time we were there...not leaving a speck of food...... and was extremely friendly! He truly wanted us to have a good experience in his dining room! I noticed later it looked like he was perhaps having some "front desk" training. He would be and EXCELLENT manager for any of your buildings!

Ann - She is also an EXCELLENT person to meet with your public! She helped in many ways...very willingly! She is a super PR person for that hotel!!

It was a VERY nice stay:>)

We tried to stay at this hotel with a group of family and friends after a big celebration...BAD IDEA.
Almost all of the reservations were wrong: wrong name, wrong floor, smoking room for non smokers or no room at all.
The night receptionist was totally unprofessional, rude and ABSOLUTELY not willing to help the situation and so is the general manager.

Very, very , very disapointed, go somewhere else people...

Second time I've stayed here. I LOVE that my dog is welcome, and they go out of their way to make sure room has easy access to outside, and anyone not wanting to be near a dog is accommodated. breakfasts are ok and standard fare. if you don't like the selection, the cracker barrel is within walking distance (about 1 block away).
very convenient with clean rooms and decent rates.

Room Tip: if you're traveling with a dog, request a room on 1st floor or near a stairwell. they will do th...

We stayed here while visiting family for the Easter Holiday and we would stay here again. It was clean, nice breakfast, and friendly staff. Great location for visiting the beaches in the area . We took a ride to Manasota Key and found several shark teeth....what a great weekend!
Close to the Cracker Barrel and i75. I would definetly recommend it!

I agree with the positive comments from other helpful reviewers but it should be noted that this hotel can get real busy in season and there is only one elevator. Not a problem for some but can be annoying if you have to get to a higher floor during the morning rush to the breakfast bar.

The attendant at the breakfast bar was pleasant and kept everything refreshed and replenished so no one had to wait long for their food. Fast access to the Venice beaches and restaurants. Try to get to eat at the Crow's Nest, some of the best seafood I ever had and overlooks a pretty harbor near the beaches.

The hotel is close to the interstate but far enough away that it isn't noisy. The front desk attendant was cordial and helpful. The rooms were decent sized and clean. The breakfast area was large and had a hot breakfast available with bacon, eggs (reconstituted) and sausage gravy and biscuits. It wasn't bad considering it wasn't a restaurant.
The carpet in the hallways was a little heavily traffic, but the room itself was in good shape.
The only real issue was that the parking lot was really small and there were several large pickups with trailers taking up two spots. There is a restaurant next door that looks good but closes fairly early so I guess it wasn't a problem for people to park in that lot. It was kind of funny, four cars vying for spots. And the parking lot isn't circular, it dead ends at the end of both lanes. So if there isn't a spot you end up having to back all the way up and try the other side. It would be helpful if the management would work out a formal arrangement with the restaurant so that the front desk staff could advise people it would be okay to park there. I got lucky and got a spot, but I would have been concerned over night that my car may not be there in the morning if I had parked in another business' lot.
