“Great place to stay”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We have stayed at this location several times. The hotel is always clean, the staff always friendly. We were especially impressed with our wonderful housekeeper Wanda. Everyday (of our week long stay) she made sure we had what we needed and greet us with a cheerful smile. We enjoy this hotel because it is centrally located to the activities we enjoy. Peace river, Venice beach, Myakka river, Manasota key. We will definitely stay here again

Kim was awesome in the kittchen and in the room. I will be back again. The rooms and breakfast were great. The cinnamon buns were great. I was here for work and stayed 3weeks. Kim took care of us the whole stay.

When we arrived I was a little put off that there were clearly many vehicles with people drinking out the back of trucks or in their cars in the parking lot. Also, we had to ring a bell for service nobody at the desk! We get our key and immediately when we opened the door to our room we could smell smoke! So we put our luggage down and went out to dinner stopped by to tell the front desk .She really either didn't care or she thought we were smoking as I got a speech about smoking not being allowed in the room! Seriously? Then they sprayed our room big deal I could have done that......we had no other options it was late and we were tired. We go to our room to sleep and we find out you can't even close the curtains so it is bright with the outside lighting how ridiculous! Never would I stay there again!!! $122 for that ...no I think not!

Room Tip: If you like a dark room don't go at all.

Had an excellent three day stay at this hotel. Was particularly impressed with the extra effort given by Kim and Rachel at the Breakfast . Would certainly stay here again when in Venice. The location was convenient; the entire hotel was clean; our room was comfortable; appreciated the availability of the self service laundry. Not only the staff mentioned above,but the desk clerks were congenial and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay. Our thanks to everyone.

Brown smears on the shear curtains. Powdery smell in the room. Both of these BEFORE we arrived. The day after we arrived , they did not clean the room because we had dogs -that were caged! The room smelled bad. Yet we were charged for the room. We were there 2 nights.

Room Tip: Look at it and smell it before accepting it.

The desk staff were helpful when I had to change rooms to smoke/BO smell in first room. My second room was set up ok but furniture had chips, and rug had many stains. Although this hotel is newer it's obviously busy because it looks well used. The air conditioner was a extremely loud, woke me many times in the night. Plus it is hard to control room temp, its just a dial not an actual temp, so you have to keep moving it between red and blue for comfortable temp. I did not use the free breakfast because there was a large Russian tour group staying in hotel making breakfast very crowded and they ran out of food. I also found the rate high for the quality. It was a business rate, if I had booked hotel on my own and paid that much I would have left to find a newer property. I called hotel average because I usually don't stay in Holiday Inns, perhaps this is how they all are? I may be picky, and expect more form this hotel class than is expected.

stayed at this HI for one night travelling North to Tampa. Convenient located just off the motorway but still quiet. There is BrewBurger just opposite the car park if you are hungry after a trip. Rooms and bedroom fine and nice staff at reception.
