“Friendly and comfortable hotel!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here recently for a business trip for 3 nights. Hotel in perfect location. I had a great check-in experience, I was thanked for being an IHG Rewards Club member and got some great restaurant recommendations from the nice
front desk staff. I was there for a few nights and each time I walked by they recognized me and it honestly made feel safe and comfortable. I had no billing issues, my room was very clean and the bed was SO comfortable. Coffee was always in the lobby which I definitely took advantage of! Breakfast was great; I enjoyed the healthy options. I will stay here next month when I come to Sarasota again.

This is the worst Holiday Inn we stayed in. From the moment we entered the room to our check out process. Room smells horrible. We stayed for 3 nights. There were no towels for 2 days. After asking for some towels, they said they are drying them (it was 2 pm in the afternoon!! and the first time it was in the evening). The breakfast is just HORRIBLE. Worst food you can eat plus they constantly were running out of items (like no coffee, no cereal...). Next day after we checked in I noticed that there were 2 charges on our online bank statement. I immediately brought this to the attention of the front clerk. She reassured me that is was a hold (even though 2 charged were for different amounts) and said that one of the charges will not be processed. So guess what? When we returned from the trip- I checked my bank account again and they did charge our card twice! (the worst thing is that I talked to the front clerk about it). I wouldn't recommend this hotel. I usually don't write reviews here but felt like I had to this time since my experience in the hotel was nothing but a nightmare.

We got a suite. My kids had rented in Siesta Key and we want to be close by but wanted to be able to rest at night. Place was super clean, new, great service and great value. I am comparing what we are paying in Europe for a room 1/2 this size ( which I know is not comparable), and appreciate this very much, because we are paying 1/2 the price, including a good breakfast. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 5 days and will return. Clean room, nice pool, and the daily breakfast was excellent. Excellent value for the money and I am already planning a return in October. Parking is plentyful and the exercise room is a bit small, but, was just fine.
