“Lovely Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We managed to book this hotel through hotwire so got a very reasonable deal compared to booking the hotel direct. The hotel itself is located away from all the attractions and there is nothing within walking distance so a car is essential. Do not let this put you off, the hotel is lovely, rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated with a very nice size bathroom. The hotel facilities are also very good. Overall, I would stay at the hotel again without a doubt.

So, my hotel on Hotwire turns out to be the Holiday Inn Airport...ho hum. But wait, from the decor to the staff it was surprisingly terrific! Even the location was a winner as it was close to our function and amenities but secluded. Airport you say? Well it is located in an industrial park with little traffic and quiet for it's proximity to the airport.

The furnishings in the public areas are updated modern; if you didn't know you were in a Holiday Inn (not to cut down Holiday Inns) you would think you were in a more upscale hotel. The room was comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. The complimentary breakfast was very average.

Jennifer, the front desk clerk, was very accommodating, friendly, and anticipated our needs.

We fly out of SRQ when we travel to Europe because it's easier to maneuver through customs and security than our hometown airport of Tampa. So this will be our "night before" hotel of choice when heading out of SRQ.

We stayed here for 5 nights while we were building our house. It was super convenient to the airport. The atrium is beautiful and spacious. The furniture and colors were modern and beautiful. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Their onsite restaurant is very good too. They have a nice big pool with jacuzzi with chaise lounges outside for sunning. Closer to the bar/restaurant area is an outdoor sectional with a fireplace in the middle (better for winter, I am sure). Their airport shuttle and a late checkout time allowed us to return our car in the AM and go back to the hotel to relax and shower before the shuttle took us back to the airport. We would definitely stay there again.

I have been using this hotel as a base of operations since October 2010. I live in SC and fly a corporate jet out of the Sarasota Airport. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable from the singles to the suites. I've experienced all their room types. The amenities are great. Plenty of on-site parking that can even accommodate large semis w/trailers and is well lit. There is a full time restaurant and sports bar & grill. Haven't had a bad meal ever! Very tasty and the chef presents them well. The fitness room is well equipped and the pool is great. Not only is the hotel across the street from our base, but it is handy to Sarasota Downtown, the Marina, Museums, Restaurants, etc. They have a courtesy van that will deliver you and pick you up, if needed. The complete staff from management to sales, servers, housekeeping and maintenance staff are extremely friendly, courteous and very helpful. There is nighttime security, also. I stay here several times per month and highly recommend it to anyone needing a hotel in the Sarasota are, from families on holiday to business people and workers on temporary jobs.

Room Tip: I prefer higher floors on the back side. Quieter and face morning sun rather than hot afternoon sun.

Green Features: It is also a totally non-smoking hotel with plenty of nice outdoor smoking areas.

Two years in a row I've stayed at this hotel and it couldn't have been better. They have a great staff and the rooms are huge and always cleaned. Nice sports bar in the lobby with great food. Pool/Spa/Sauna is a good spot to relax. Just an overall great hotel.
