Convenient to I-75 and beach

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Hotel is conveniently located close to Cracker Barrell, McDonald's, I-75. Venice is a quaint little town with lots of cute shops and nice restaurants. Most were closed for July 4th holiday but some were opwn. Apparently peak season was over so the town was not crowded at all. Hotel accommodated pets and the room was nice but the floor had stains... did not have a bad odor at all thankfully. Wear your shoes if you a paranoid about walking on a stained carpet. It did seem clean even though there were some stains. The breakfast is the standard hotel offerings. Not appealing at all. They had biscuits and gravy but it obviously came out if a box and heated up. If you like yogurts cereal fruit boxed oatmeal, you'll be ok. Instead of waffles they had a pancake machine. They were as expected. Staff were very nice and friendly. Would stay again.

Convenient to get to, close to various attractions

Posted Mar 8, 2014
Pros: Very clean but rooms space was a little tight with two queen beds.
Cons: Bed spacing next to the wall needs to be expanded if possible - about one foot between wall and bed closest to the access door to the room.
Location: Convenient to express way to get to attractions in Tampa, Sarasota, and Venice (i.e., Bush Gardens, Mote Aquarium, Venice beaches, Shelby Gardens).
Had a wonderful time with facilities to match. Breakfasts were always looked forward to with plenty of selections. Coffee was available at all times which made the wife happy. Staff was very helpful if you have a question or room problem.

Great overnight

Posted Mar 3, 2014
Pros: Convenient location right off 75/41
Cons: Room was well used but could use new bedding linens, not terrible but not the best we have had at other Holiday Inn Express locations.
Staff was extremely friendly, check in prompt and room was clean. Breakfast was good and Shirley was super sweet!

Vacation and meet up with old local HS classmates

Posted Mar 2, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: breakfast meal, no powdered eggs, more selection, maybe so fresh cut fruit would be good.
Location: Drove the are as we had lived here before. Drove as far south as Boca Grande Island and up to Anna Maria Island. Visited the beaches and other areas.
No problems, no issues other than a door lock that wouldn't latch. That was fixed. Would like other than powdered eggs in the morning and there might have been a bit more variety in the breakfast food. Otherwise no big issues.
