My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's really quiet, rooms are clean and the people at the desk are really friendly. The location is ideal, near the I75 highway. Cracker barrel is at walking distance, there's also a burger joint and a gas station next door.

stayed here for a trip to Venice Beach and dining. Hotel is clean, but furniture is a bit used and dated. Front desk, cleaning staff were very friendly. Location was convenient, 12 minutes to beach, lots of restaurants within 15 minute drive

I traveled here about a month ago for the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon. All hotels in the area were completely booked. However, Brenan provided me EXTREMELY GREAT customer service considering the odds. He was considerate of my needs and i would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. All the staff was extremely friendly and focused on service. We had great experiences with the front desk staff, morning breakfast staff, and housekeeping. The rooms were very nice, clean, and comfortable.

We stayed for one night while stopping through the area. We checked in late and nothing around was open past 9 on a Saturday night. The parking lot was full, so we were told by the front desk that we could park at the burger place next door. The room seemed clean and the bed and pillows were comfy. The...

This hotel taught us to look at a room before we decide on staying the night. The room charge was $245.00 a night. The mattress was horrible, the rug in the room was worn bare and I said the room smelled like turpentine all the way to the bedding. My husband said it smelled like paint. We will not return...

We took this reservation based on our past nice stays at holiday inn express. What a disappointment. Carpet and room chairs dirty. Furniture marked and scratched. Beds lumpy. Lighting awful. Bathroom tub had mold around the edge. I do have to say the young man at the desk was very friendly and all the cleaning staff too. Location off I75...
