We stayed two nights, Friday and Saturday. Tsveta was excellent at check-in and got us a free upgrade because of our Spire Elite status. We loved the suite she gave us and advise on visiting the sales center for Lakewood Ranch.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days while we were looking for a house to buy to relocate from D.C. The room was very quiet and comfortable. The bed was so wonderful after a long day. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The steakhouse in the hotel is wonderful for breakfast and dinner. Very quiet and great...

We booked with points through IHG Hotels. Nice room, good location, nice view facing a pond and overlooking the pool. The pool was usually pretty empty, which was nice. We did not go to the restaurant attached to the hotel, but did walk across the parking lot to The Lucky Pelican (great place to eat/drink). Quick access to the highway,...

Wife and I stayed for one night here. Had two issues that dropped my rating. First I found hair sticking to the walls of the shower that didn't belong to us. Second the water pressure in the shower was dismal. We were on the top floor, but still. Our room came with a free breakfast buffet. Nothing really to write...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch on a recent business trip to Sarasota. The location was convenient for my meetings. Be aware there is a lot of road construction in the area and getting onto I-75 was slow and tedious. This hotel is a standard 3-star property with the usual amenities. However, there is no in-room safe to...

This is a very convenient location to all of the shopping and dining options in Lakewood Ranch. The hotel was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Both front desk and restaurant staff were very accommodating. Our only criticism was that it had the worst Wi-Fi internet connection I have ever experienced. I would not have been happy had we...

This was a very nice, clean hotel that was in a great location. The steakhouse attached was not my favorite. The Lucky Pelican restaurant located next door was incredible! There were plenty of stores and restaurants nearby.. My favorite destination while staying at this hotel was Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe. It was a beautifully maintained public Beach with a...
