This hotel is one of the best hidden secrets of Sarasota....not just for value but one of the nicest hotel off the beaten path with the best customer service. The customer service provided by Andrew at the front desk was outstanding. He was very accommodating with my requests. Later in the day he checked with me if everything was OK. I just can't say enough how I was impressed with his high level of customer service. I have never experienced this at a Holiday Inn or similar hotel category.
As far as the room and bathroom......modern and super clean...spa like. The bed was super comfortable....pillows and all. I thought I was sleeping on a Westin Heavenly Bed!
The pool is unique....inside but cool because you are not under the sun. If you want sun, just step outside to the sun deck
My only recommendation is for more lighting in the parking lot....limited lighting....not sure if this was normal or not.
In summary, this is not your typical holiday inn....once you stay there, you will probably want to stay there again....for the value and customer service!
