In speaking with one of the employees the renovation was completed...

Overnight business trip, well appointed rooms, fresh decor, Attended a business dinner in hotel, very well done, very attentive staff. Tasteful decor in public areas. Only negative was that closer detail need to be paid to cleanliness in shower stall.

Thank you for your feedback and positive comments. We use a dark grout in our showers which can be mistaken for a dirty shower. We are very sensitive about being a very clean hotel so I would like to hear from you if you get a free moment. We want to make sure rectify the situation. Sincerely, Rob Ferguson

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a family wedding. The room prices were impressive. It was just over 100 dollars for a nice suite on the 5th floor. The room was very nicely decorated and made for a very comfortable visit. Loved that it was a true suite with a separate bedroom. My only disappointment with the room was...

I needed to book a room near Lakewood Ranch/University Pkwy because of an early morning business meeting. There were several choices at this particular Interstate exit. I picked the HI primarily based on prior reviews, hoping for a superior experience. Positives were nice decor, more upscale than I expected, and a pleasant staff. It was also good to have an...

stpetebeth, We are so sorry you did not have a great stay with us. We do keep the fitness center open longer at night than the pool as we try to prevent outside noise from reaching the guest rooms. We spend a great deal of time watching the rates of our competitors. We are usually the best value in the...

I was recently booked as a guest in the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the rooms and lobby of this Holiday Inn. It bucked the trend of tried and drab HI of the past. While it should not be confused with a proper full service hotel, it was a very pleasant upper...

I was surprised I was in a Holiday Inn. I went here for a seminar and everything was as it should be. The lobby has been renovated and I recommend this place if you need to be in Sarasota! The location was fine for what I needed and there were a number of decent restaurants nearby.

This is a nice facility. They have ONE jacuzzi suite and it's pretty spectacular. It's on the top floor, on a corner at the end of the hall and the jacuzzi is IN THE BEDROOM. The living/dining area is very spacious. The bed was luxurious. There's also a weird shower-closet type thing that you'll just have to see for yourself....

This hotel was chosen because of its location, near a multi-day racing event I was competing in, and budget-wise price. It was an excellent choice that I would book again in a minute.
