Had the opportunity to stay at this HI Express for one night. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. My room was somewhat tired looking which I thought was unusual in a fairly new hotel. Breakfast was the usual HI Express excellent. Rate was $99 after AAA discount which I consider to be good. Not quite up to my other... More

We stayed one night here. The room next to us had a dog which they left unattended, likely while they went for dinner. The dog barked continuously, obviously upset at being left alone. We were going to relax before dinner but the constant barking disallowed that. How mean to bring the poor animal and subject it to such a stressful... More

Was here for three nights, wasn't a bad experience, but nothing great either. The hotel staff was friendly. The breakfast was more than reasonable and filled us up each morning. Our room wasn't in the best shape though, wall had places that have been repaired but not repainted, had some sort of stain on ceiling that looked like a faint... More

I can't say enough how much I appreciate the free breakfast that is offered at the Holiday Inn Express locations. My husband and I stayed at this hotel during June when I wanted to visit the Venice Pier beach to hunt for sharks' teeth. It is just a few minutes' drive from the pier (and I did find sharks' teeth!).... More

Home reno in Venice brought us here. Lovely staff. Manager and Marlene could not have been nicer! We were in and out for four days; all needs met! We will return in June and July. It is our understanding that the hotel is preparing for renovations.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's really quiet, rooms are clean and the people at the desk are really friendly. The location is ideal, near the I75 highway. Cracker barrel is at walking distance, there's also a burger joint and a gas station next door.

stayed here for a trip to Venice Beach and dining. Hotel is clean, but furniture is a bit used and dated. Front desk, cleaning staff were very friendly. Location was convenient, 12 minutes to beach, lots of restaurants within 15 minute drive

I traveled here about a month ago for the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon. All hotels in the area were completely booked. However, Brenan provided me EXTREMELY GREAT customer service considering the odds. He was considerate of my needs and i would definitely stay here again.
