“Jennifer at the Front Desk was wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Just thought I would let you know, that Jennifer at the Front Desk wonderful. She was very caring, compassionate and truly displayed that she enjoyed her job! She helped us locate a pizza place, dialed the number for us, printed our boarding passes for us. Just all around a great person.

The bed was terrible. We could not get a decent nights sleep. I can usually sleep well even on bed of nails....but not on this bed. Rooms are worn, stained and in need of rehab. Staff is very good. Jennifer was a wonderful night hostess. Great location. Right off interstate and only 15 min to beach. There are wonderful restaurants near as well.

Girl's trip to visit a newly retired friend took us to Venice FLA area and this hotel. Arrived around 11pm and had booked a double room, as three of us were traveling....at check-in we were informed that we were getting the last room in the hotel...and it was a king bed only. The young man (Jason maybe) at the desk was very helpful, giving us a rollaway and leaving a note for the manager. The room issue was resolved the next morning and we were given the double we reserved, however, we had to suggest to the manager the first night should be comp'd as this was not suggested by her (but she quickly agreed) The hotel was packed and at breakfast our first morning (breakfast starts at 6:30, we arrived at 7am) many food items, including the cinnamon rolls were completely gone. OK - you know you have a full house, prepare enough food! The breakfast area is small, maybe 10 tables and there is a small room off the lobby with one computer for guests to use. Rooms were fine, a bit old and some stains on the sheets, but the beds were comfortable. The room was hot and the air conditioning (in both rooms we had) was not working well and did not cool the room. The tub drained slowly, again in both rooms and the sink had no water pressure. Pets are allowed at this hotel and I have never been in a hotel with so many dogs! The entire area is dog crazy with dogs allowed in shops, restaurants and grocery stores! We spent one day at Myakka State park, very enjoyable, take the air boat tour for guaranteed alligator sightings!

We have been staying here for 2 weeks, and I have to say that the woman who works at the desk in the afternoon shift, Jennifer, has been a great host. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this area. She is very helpful, very polite, handles clients very friendly and professional, and I think she is a great asset to your hotel. You should make it a point to hang on to her, as she will definitely leave a good impression on people, and will pretty much guarantee your customers to return next time they are in Venice. The breakfast every morning is very convenient, and saves a meal out of the wallet. The hotel and rooms were always clean, and being able to do laundry in house was great..

We are frequent Holiday Inn Express guests. When we needed a pet friendly hotel last minute we were pleased to find this Holiday Inn. The location was perfect for our needs. We found the staff to be both gracious and flexible. The management team stopped each day to assure we had all we needed. Everyone worked as a team and everyone was friendly. We had young children in our group and the breakfast staff each day went out of their way to make sure they were taken care of and to assure mom and dad it was not inconvenient. We will be returning ti Venice and we will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends and family traveling this way.

Hotel has good bones but has problems. Beds are old and worn out. Terrible nights sleep and back aches for both hubby and I. Our bathroom floor was filthy, grout and tiles. Desk was very cheaply made. All furniture has lots of nicks in them. Wall have marks on them. Blood ?splatter on window sheers.
