Nice hotel on good transport links to Sarasota

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Pros: Comfort and breakfast
Cons: The voucher system between the hotel and on site but third party provider needs improving - we had to collect our vouchers daily, felt quiet childish
Location: There's a Publix restaurant very close by and a shopping Mal next door. It's situated on the crossroads of 2 key roads, providing excellent transport
We found the hotel, clean, comfortable and welcoming with a good self serve breakfast - make sure you take a copy of your booking as we were asked to prove we had breakfast included in our rate. We visited this hotel on leisure with 2 rooms booked.

Stayed for one night but wish I stayed longer. Awesome coffee. Friendly staff. Highly Recommend.

Pros: The staff was friendly.
Cons: Get rid of the ant problem. The room that was affected was on the top floor and ants don't fly so it means they are in the walls.
Location: Good location to learn about the Lakewood Ranch area.
I checked into the hotel and the staff at the front desk were very friendly, welcoming and excellent. I took my bags to my room and left to meet with some friends for the evening. When I returned back to the room, the bathroom sink area was completely covered with ants. There were so many of them. I told the front desk and was assigned to a new room (no ants.) This condition must have been previously known as it was really bad. Hopefully, the building will be fumigated soon.

Great location

Posted Apr 14, 2015
Pros: Location is very gqood
Cons: Pool cleaning
Location: Very close to University Town Center and many restaurants.
The hotel and staff were very nice. The exception to this is the hotel pool. It was green, dead bugs floating and sunk to the bottom. Chewing gum was in the pool. A teenage sports team was staying at the hotel all week and the front desk used that asan excuse. In my eyes, that would have been reason to check it out more often.

Nice hotel convenient to everything

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Location, room comfort and cleanliness.
Cons: It would be nice if at least a continental breakfast was included in the price of the room.
Location: There are many great restaurants in the area and the white beaches of the gulf coast are very close by.
We stayed here on a visit to Sarasota for Orioles spring training. The hotel was clean and comfortable; the staff was very friendly. It was very conveniently located right off the highway so everything you need was within a maximum 15-20 minute drive.

i typcially stay at Holiday Inn Express, and I have always had good experiences. However, the Holiday Inn Express in Sarasota was the best.
