“Nice overnight stay”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

We stayed only one night in order to catch an early flight at RSW airport - quick and easy drive to airport. Very beautiful hotel, practically new. Comfortable beds and super nice bath. The only flaw was that there was only one chair in the room - it would have been nice to have more sitting space other than on the bed. We did not try the breakfast because we had to leave very early, but the breakfast/lobby area was very spacious and had a large screen TV - handy to watch news or sports. The business center had a computer with printer, some office and shipping supplies, and a phone. A small shopping center was right across the street and many restaurants nearby.

This was a very nice hotel to stay in while visiting relatives. The beds were quite comfortable and the breakfast had a lot of hot options to offer (better than most). The front desk clerk at night was not very friendly, but that's okay. I used the iron and it ruined my white shirt with something black. They tried to get it out of my shirt, but still some remained, and I won't be able to wear it again. I appreciated their effort. It was nice to have Target, Home Depot, and other stores in the same parking lot. WalMart was closeby also.

I booked this hotel through hotwire, so I did not choose to stay there at first. My idea was to get a cheap room to spend the night and head to Naples in the morning. I have to say the Holiday Inn was a wonderful surprise: the room we got was one of the best I ever stayed in, including major premium brands like Sheraton and Mandarin Oriental. Big, elegant (!), well-equipped, the room was a major and pleasant surprise when we arrived late at night. I did not check the breakfast nor the amenities but I am happy to report this hotel deserves all the positive comments I read in tripadvisor. Of course, it is located in a suburb so there is nothing in the surrounding but free internet, parking and very friendly staff make the stay 100% worth it. Big thumb up for a little unpretentious hotel that could teach one thing or two to the big dogs in the hotel business.

I have stayed in rooms across South West Florida and it does not get any better than this place. The hotel is new, so all appliances and amenities in the room are new and fresh. The fitness center and breakfast/meeting area are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable and the pillows labeled whether they were firm/soft. The wireless internet was a nice touch and never seemed to give me a problem with connectivitiy. Service checking in/out was a breeze and the staff was very friendly. I know that for a guy that travels over 120 days a year, this place was one of the nicer hotels I have stayed in, and the area around the hotel provided plenty of dining/shopping needs.

Our family stayed here last month for two night during a sports tournament. This hotel is only a year old so everything is almost brand new. The lobby and breakfast area were roomy and accomodated our large group of people. The rooms are very attractively furnished in a modern/minimalist way and the bed linens and pillows are very high quality-much like a luxury hotel!
The window coverings are very well lined and let in no early morning light, so we got to sleep in late both mornings!
Although our group came in all at the same time to check-in, the process was very smooth and the staff was friendly and accomodating.
The breakfast had quite a variety of items and was constantly being replenished right up until the breakfast time window was over (our late-sleepers still got plenty of food even though they got up at the last minute). Most importantly, the coffee was fresh and well-made!
Plenty of shopping and restraurant chains are right across the street-you could walk to dinner.
We look forward to coming back here.

We stayed one night enroute to vacation destination. We arrived late and left the next morning, so didn't spend much time there. The hotel is new and very comfortable and just a short drive from the airport--easy to find. Beds and linens are wonderful--we slept soundly. Immaculately clean. Hotel is in a quiet location, yet near shopping and restaurants. It appears to be a newly-developing area. We were checked in quickly and efficiently, and clerk was helpful in directing us to restaurants which would be open late. The breakfast is many steps above the usual "complimentary breakfast." It offered cereals, toast, Eng muffins, instant oatmeal, omelettes, bacon, yogurt, fresh fruit, muffins, sweet rolls and many other items--a large selection. I appreciated the more healthy offerings as they are hard to find in most hotel breakfasts. Served by a friendly staff member in a lovely dining area. They also offer a washer/dryer for those on extended stays. Free internet which worked well. Altogether a great first night of our vacation. Thank you for a great stay.

We stayed here at the Holiday Inn for one night before going to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise. The hotel was not that far from the airport but we had a rental car. There was shopping nearby and plenty of restaurants. The hotel was clean and we had no problem checking in even after 11pm when the doors are locked. Good safety feature. We cashed in our priority points and the stay was great. Nice new comfortable beds known as sleep smart bedding, very nice shower area (no tub) but who needs that. The shower spray was really cool. I did not bring a hair dryer but they had a free one in the bathroom that worked just fine. We had no problems whatsoever with our room and I am a neat freak and everything was clean to my satisfaction. The bedding was a duvet and I liked the pillows. The only minor issue was breakfast. The free breakfast was ok but no place to sit, it was totally crowded and lacked seating although it could be due to the Spring Training season and alot of people were in town for that. The fitness center was good with new machines. We also used the free internet to check our email. Good value and nice place for the money. Very new hotel.
