My family and I stayed here for three nights in early March. We were there primarily for Orioles Spring Training at (relatively) close Ed Smith Stadium. It's fairly typical for hotels of this class: off an interstate (but not too close so noise is not an issue), a continental/warm breakfast included, and an outdoor pool. Our room had two queen...

My girlfriend and I stayed over here following a fun day at the Suncoast Blues Festival and before heading on the Key West. The room was ample with standard furnishings. The "free" breakfast offered a wide variety of choices suitable for fueling up before a few hours on the road. Near I-75 but still quiet. Nice indoor pool area.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights the first week in February. When we checked in, we were told our room is not ready because they were understaffed. Fine with us, but to find the bathroom had hair in the tub and the airconditioning not working when we got to the room seemed like a bad omen. During our stay,...

Average hotel. Good breakfast. Thought it was kind of pricey for the hotel-$150.00 with discount but 'tis the in-season. So many people going south! Was pleased to know that Holiday Inns as well as Hampton Inns give veteran's discounts.

We stayed for a week and chose the location due to being near the highway. We could get to St. Armand's Circle/Lido Beach in 20-30 minutes. Downtown is only 20 minutes depending on your route. Myakka River State Park is 9 miles east. The hotel is very clean and modern. Our window air conditioner had a hard time keeping up...
