Great home base for beaches

Hotel is located in an upscale, newer area of Sarasota. There are plenty of shopping centers and restaurants close by and a mall is currently being built. Room was modern and tastefully decorated. The bed was even more comfortable than my bed at home. Choice of firm or soft pillows. Everything was clean. All affordable hotels on the beach were booked so we stayed here and went back and forth to Siesta Key and Bradenton Beach and the drive was not bad to either location. Only negatives I can think of is that the staff were not as friendly as they could be, there was quite a bit of noise that could be heard from adjacent rooms and the hall at night, and there is a pond right next to the hotel with alligators in it. Never saw one though and overall experience was great. Would stay here again.

Best looking holiday inn with less than the best location.

The decor was great as was the view of the lake from the room. The hot tub and pool were fantastic and the staff were polite abd helpful . The only drawback was the location as it was a bit far from town ( we were there fir the film festival and had to go back and forth several times a day ) and thus had to get a rental car. The hotel's relatively high price for being out of the way from the city or the beach, along with the price of the rental car is what diminished (slightly ) the value. However, after all is said and done , we had a lovely stay and did not want to leave the hotel and return to New York !

Just a Holiday Inn

Hotel was so-so. One little thing that bothered me was that the hallways had attractive carpets, but there were several spots where someone had spilled bleach on them and nothing had been done to correct this problem. Also, in our bathroom, the vinyl wall covering was peeling.

Stay in September 2012

Great hotel, I was in town on business training. Location was near plenty of restaurants although the restaurant inside the hotel was also very good. They serve buffalo steaks which were excellent. Room was tidied up and cleaned each day. No HD channels so it seems fuzzy compared to what I'm used to at home but that is getting picky.

Great hotel

Hotel is very clean and nice, staff is friendly and prompt, restaurant has great food but limited choices especially for those with dietary restrictions. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and well designed. Great pool, spa, and fitness center. Quiet relaxing environment close to shops, dining, anything you need. Only improvements that could have been made were that carpets should be cleaned more thoroughly, some stains, one lamp did not work, and bath tub faucet was a bit loose causing not all of water to divert to shower. Very minor issues compared to perfection of everything else. Next time I would get a king size bed, no queens available, just doubles, not good for couples and would request a room not facing the parking lot. Would be worth paying extra for a bit of a view although the room facing the lot was quiet and we had no problems. No sounds heard from any neighbors.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Rent a car. Everything within short driving distance but not much within walking distance. Beaches, shopping, dining close by car. Nice getaway from the busy areas.
