The hotel is near a very small airport and I didn't hear any noise from the airport. The decor is nice and I did enjoy sitting in the atrium enjoying me coffee. I didn't visit the restaurant or bar but there were people there. I had a room right across from the vending machine/ice machine area and very close to... More

My husband and I needed an affordable place to stay for our vacation this year. Unlike last year, we didn't have the cash for a resort experience. This Holiday Inn, being near a tiny airport and honoring a third party discount that my husband used, turned out to be our best choice for Sarasota. It did not disappoint. It has... More

The hotel has been redone and has the bricks and mortar of a great facility right next to the airport in Sarasota. The problem is they miss on the little details that makes it a five star property. The atrium in the center of the hotel was not air-conditioned so when you stepped out of your room you began to... More

This hotel is very nice and comfortable. My only issue with it is that the guest wifi is almost unusable. The employees are very friendly and the hotel bar is nice.
