Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler98765 Nice hotel but falls short
This hotel has potential but we were disappointed by the hot tub being out of order and the large soccer teams staying at the hotel and making noise at all hours of the night.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jimmer50 Hororable stay
Our eight day stay was unreasonably uncomfortable. From the first day we arrived, we find out that the hot tub did not work and this is one of the main reason why we booked this hotel. The staff said that a person was coming the next day to look at it and get it fixed. During our whole stay, the hot tub never got fixed. On top of that the security lock to get into the pool area was broke and we had to consistently had to ask the staff to let us in. I complained to the manager and she would not give us a discount or any compensation for the inconvenience during our whole stay. Then two days before our departure, both elevators broke down and we had to go up and down six flights of stairs. The pillows was small in the bed (King size bed) and the cleaning lady did not give us clean water glasses everyday and some days it was late in the day before the room got cleaned. Also after talking with the staff about all the issues we had during our stay, they would talk amongst each other in Spanish so that I would not understand. If you work in America and you serve English speaking customers, they should be curtious in talking English during business hours. Very rude. Never would stay there again. Such rude staff and the pool facility was not working the whole time we was staying there. Even thought the staff kept telling us they was going to get it fixed.

This is an above average Holiday Inn with full modern rooms. The Sports Bar & Grill was great with a good selection of food.
The hotel front desk staff were extra helpful, upon checkin my key didn't work the first time, went back down the desk & he fixed it plus comped me a couple of drinks at the bar.
I had a schedule change & had to check out the next day instead of staying the full week. I call them at about 10:45 & asked for a late check out & it was no problem.
I needed to use the business center & it didn't have a scanner & the front desk person went into the back office & figured out how to scan a couple oc documents, turn them into PDF's & put them on a thumb drive for me.
Now that is service...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SYRTraveler Best I have been at for a Holiday Inn!
If you like Service with a smile, great Rooms and beds, friendly people who work here, this is the place for you (and Me ).
I can not say enough about the service provided and the best Staff I have seen at any Holiday Inn I travel to.
Scott and Jeffrey were great. They checked me in at a reasonable pace, acquired all the information they needed, and gave me great food reccomendations for after the hotels restaurant closed down.
When I check out with Lisset and Samanatha, what a great view.
They were efficient, proficient, and nice to work with.
I can not say enough about Sandy and Mimi at the restaurant. They were great servers and the food was excellent.
My best wishes to the Owner (Mr Patel) and his excellent staff.

I am frequently in sarasota, Florida. This was my first time at this hotel. Great overall stay!! I have stayed at other 3 star hotels near the airport and like this hotel better!! The only downside is that there is supposed to be free breakfast for 2 people! I stayed five nights and was never even offered a breakfast voucher???? First, I was never told about needing breakfast vouchers, offered any or made aware of such!!! On my last day, I had breakfast there, it was ok for a buffet style breakfast. I was asked by the waitress if I had a voucher.... I said no and she proceeded to put down a bill for $18.79.... So for a hotel offering a free breakfast for 2... I paid 24.00 including tip!!! Other 3star hotels within tents of miles from this one, just as nice followed through with free breakfast, no gimmicks, vouchers, etc.... Needed!!!! I paid about the same for the other hotels... So, for the money, amenities and breakfast.... Seek out other hotels near sarasota, airport!!! I like this hotel but.... If I had eaten there by myself for the five days... It would have cost more than a hundred dollars for breakfast alone!!!! No family included!!!!! I would definitely stay there again, if, they fix this issue!!! Otherwise, I will go back to one of the other hotels on the other side of sarasota, airport!!!! Please, holiday inn.... Fix this issue!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJ1173 Very Good Hotel
Was down in the Bradenton-Sarasota area for work and stayed at the Holiday Inn Sarasota Airport for a little over a week (I travel a lot and stay in hotels approx once a month). It was a great experience from check in to check out. To start with, check-in was really easy and quick, the room was very clean when first arriving and throughout the stay. The gym was your typical hotel gym with two treadmills, an elliptical, a circuit machine and some free weight dumbbells. Did not use the pool but seemed clean and well taken care of. Parking was ample and Check Out was fast. Staff was very courtesy. The only complaint would be that even though they had a restaurant in the hotel (Sporting News Grill) there was no where else close to walk to otherwise did not have any complaints.

New, clean hotel. Very professional front desk staff. Convenient to airport (free shuttle), Sarasota and Bradenton beaches. Indoor pool was small but nice. Sauna and steam rooms were unexpected pleasures. Wife and child really enjoyed the pool.
Breakfast buffet was a disappointment, not much selection and food quality was only average. Overall excellent hotel – I will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RubyL Outstanding service and great price
My husband and I recently had an overnight stay in the Sarasota Area. Hotel staff, especially, Mark at the front desk was outstanding! Room was very clean compared to other chains and flat screen TV was a major plus.. Upscale lobby with great decor made you feel you weren't in a hotel sitting across the street from an airport. Sit down breakfast was included in our stay, and breakfast was great, fresh and ample amount of food. Whenever we are in this area, this is where we will stay!
