My family stayed here for two nights to tour New College of Florida. The location was convenient as we have been to Sarasota before. For vacation I recommend staying on the beach instead. Compared to some other hotels, this holiday inn was clean and well kept. The staff was incredibly helpful and genuinely care about the guests. I especially want...

Checked in late and only had enough time to sleep and leave early. It was clean. Compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations I have recently stayed it is noticeably an older hotel. The breakfast at this hotel is pretty much consistent with the others...not great. The automatic pancake maker is not appealing to me. Not sure if the setting...

I decided to stay at the hotel while in the area to attend the Baltimore Orioles spring training games. This well maintained hotel had a nice pool and hot tub. It was about a 15 drive to both Siesta Key beach and Ed Smith stadium. There were plenty of restaurants in the area along with more drug stores than you...

Internet fast. Free breakfast standard Holiday Inn Express fare, something for everyone. Plenty of parking. Pool and gym are satisfactory. Suite for 4 adults and 2 kids was spacious and clean. Well equipped rooms. Would absolutely be back.

I flew in late and was greeted at the front desk by Sal. To say he gives great customer service is an understatement!! He has gone above and beyond on my trip. He went out of his way to print maps and point out all the places I should try while visiting Sarasota. We also we met DeVore who gave...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and it is always great. It has always been one of my favorites. It is very clean and modern. It has a nice gym and pool. It is near everything.

I stayed here for a 4 night business trip and found the staff very accommodating and the hotel very nice for the price.

Overall a friendly staff that was accommodating. Vary bland, dark and uninviting décor..... lines this property, however. Seasonal rates are out of this world in Sarasota!
