“my first trip to Florida :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place was totally great! My first morning there at the Breakfast I met Betsy and she gave me my whole plan for the week of things to do, she went way beyond and I should have thanked her more before I left, but didnt run into her again, she had family coming to visit so had time off and I am sure Enjoyed, but anyways the rest of the staff was wonderful including Tom, the Pool was Great and our rooms,Oh yes Clean and comfortable and met our needs, lots of hot water after the day at the Beach. Thank you all at this Holiday Express and would use again and again!!

Room Tip: no restaurant and room service so cant rate, but makes you go to the best ones in town and that'...

Friendly Staff, comfortable beds, tasty breakfast, large swimming pool and a very restful stay.
I would highly recommend it!
We stayed there two nights, and had a very relaxing time. Also there are free cookies in the afternoon at the front desk....kids liked that.

Room Tip: They do a lot of business with Hotwire. You can get some good deals there.

having stayed here many many times before we still like it for the location and the pool area.
hotel is getting a little worn and the pool area plants really could use some tlc.
Same goes for the hotel general in door apperance. But still the location and the fact that they have reduced price makes this still a good place to stay.
Beds are quite ok but the pull out sofas could use new matresses

Room Tip: second floor is best.

I stayed one night at this hotel and the experience was excellent. Room was very clean, abundance of towels, comfortable bed. The staff was very professional. The breakfast is one of the best, plentiful and there is a wide variety of food for everyone's taste. Did no have time to try out the pool but I will when I stay there again.

I have stayed at almost every hotel in Sarasota/ Bradenton area. This is by far the best value for your money. I am a big sports fan and I have a pet peeve about all the 3 and 4 star hotels around here have HD LCD TVs but no HD broadcast. This place has almost all HD channels making my TV viewing that much more pleasant. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It has all the amenities and Full breakfast etc like other Holiday Inn Express hotels. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

We were there for a wedding. Our room had bugs in it and they moved us to a suite which was nice, but my sister had 3 different rooms that she tried that were all infested with bugs. They were some type of ant but A LOT of them.

Hotel was in a good area. Front desk staff were efficient and friendly. They met all my needs with a smile. Breakfast was up to Holiday Inn standards. The Hotel seems a bit old, and my room could probably use some new carpeting and steam clean the furniture, but it wasn't bad. The bed was comfortable and the hotel seemed quiet, even though they had a big sign welcoming some Soccer tournament or something. That got me a little nervous, but maybe I missed them?? Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
