“Great People, great service and pet friendly on top!!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Have stayed at this hotel twice during the last two months as there are problems with my home there. The people are great and always took the time to ask how things were going. Special thanks to Kim and Jeanne for the great breakfast buffet, Wanda for the clean room, and Rachel and Christine at the front desk for beings so patient with us. We have two rather vocal maltese and even though they can be a handful, there were always treats waiting for them.

The hotel is located right near I-75 in Venice, which is really convenient and is one of the few "pet friendly" hotels in the area so you can't go wrong. Also located about 15 minutes from the Outback, Bonefish Grill, Appleby's and Cracker Barrel restaurants.

Referred by others from the Fox Lea horse show just for one night. Knew it was the right place when Wanda went out of her way to make sure my room was exactly what I needed. Loved that she recognized us the next morning when we were checking out. Hope I have another opportunity to stay at this Holiday Inn Express. PS: Loved the BrewBurger restaurant across the parking lot.

Last minute, we needed two rooms, one with pet, check in was great, lotsa luggage....after a week stay elsewhere. We were greeted at the elevator with a smile, help and introduction to our room by Wanda, who come to find out was responsible for our extra clean rooms, above and beyond friendly and helpful! Love her personality and work ethic! When in the area, I will absolutely stay at this hotel!

I had a great time while house hunting in Venice, Fl. mostly due to the staff at Holiday Inn Express. My room was clean, cool and lovely. The staff made me feel right at home. Rebecca and Rachel were awesome, always ready with a smile and to help me out with whatever I needed.

Now that I am moving there, I will stop in and say hello when I get to my new destination.

Room Tip: Loved the location of my room, right off the lobby. Easy to carry my luggage in and out. Great resta...

i drove 24 hours from ri to fl to pick up my new puppy. i needed a comfortable nice place to rest my weary body upon arrival. the staff was congenial. i got a great nights sleep. the best part was the excellent breakfast hosted by KIM. what a nice person. she made sure we were completely cared for and gave us a great breakfast in a beautiful clean sunny place. everything was hot delicious and service was perfect. thanks KIM for a great start to our day. i would not think of going anywhere else. This Holiday Inn Express is really TOPS!

Room Tip: My room was excellent. No problems

Had occasion to stay at the Venice Holiday Inn twice in July and the staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions, recommending restaurants, and other tips that made our visit to Venice so pleasant. Our room was very clean. The staff always had a smile and made us feel very welcome. Jennifer and Rebecca were outstanding examples of what Holiday Inn would want in all their staff. We will look forward to staying there again on our next trip to Venice.
