Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience Clean, affordable, good breakfast choices. I was impressed! September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place right off of I-75 This hotel is a must if you are going to Sarasota, FL for business. This hotel is right off of I-75, the staff are awesome, and the free breakfast is great to get you up and going in the morning. The price is unbeatable also for this quality of a hotel. I will stay there anytime I return to Sarasota, FL for work or pleasure! September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by In room amenities Absolutely loved the refrigerator, microwave, and large safe in the room. Recently transferred with my company to the Sarasota area and I'm living in hotels until my husband transfers down from VA. Having these items in the room made my life so much easier. I could purchase food at the local grocery store and have items in my room for meals...not to mention cold drinks. The safe made me feel more secure leaving valuable items in the room. It was huge! I loved it! September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice place nice place with friendly staff. Welcome gift of water kind of cheap September 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by King rooms I stayed in 3 times in one week They were three comfortable and clean rooms, with AC units that worked well and were not excessively noisy as in some hotels. Surrounding area did not raise any concerns about safety, as it did in a hotel closer to downtown Sarasota where I stayed earlier in same week.. Hotel was in reasonably good condition, and breakfast room was large enough to accommodate the moderate number of guests on the nights I stayed there. The breakfast offerings were reasonably good, and included some healthy choices like raisin bran and turkey sausage. There were mini-omelets that were tasty enough but not quite as good as fresh scrambled eggs. The 3-4 staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. One clerk took substantial extra time to help me find the Legacy Trail a few miles away for my walk-run one morning, printing a map for me. September 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great as usual! I always stay at Holiday Inn Express. This was was just as good as all the others I have used. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay I had a one night stay and the room was comfortable and very clean. Staff was great and the breakfast was very good. I am always positively impress when I stay at Holiday Inn Express. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great place to stay Had to come to fla for business. Had stayed here in April and chose to stay here again. Was able to enjoy the pool and hot tube. all the staff were friendly and helpful. Will defiantly stay here the next time I am in Fla. August 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarasota Very nice place to stay when in the area. Great staff, very comfortable. August 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly helpful staff The staff at the Sarasota HIEX was friendly and accomodating, happy to help us with directions to local restuarants. It's a nice touch to be greeted by a beautiful container of lemonade in the registration area. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Service with not only hotel room but hotels conference center The hotel definitely put best foot forward when not only setting up my event in their conference room but also upgrading my room from the standard king to a king suite. Sales and marketing Manager, Sandi was extremely helpful and accommodating for all my company needs. Their staff Tim, Lisa, Kristen and others were very friendly, very helpful and all concerned that my event with my sales team went seamlessly. Their attention to detail and overall hotel experience was recognized by all. I have been staying within the IHG family of hotels for less then 10 months and have found each property that I've stayed at to be above scale of any other hotel chain I've used in the past. Thanks all, for making my sales event a success !!!! see you next quarter! thanks Vince Progressive Waste Solutions, inc August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top Notch Sarasota Hotel This hotel continuously exceeds my expectations with a friendly staff and a clean environment. Every room I've stayed in has been very comfortable, in great condition, and very clean. There have been some changes to breakfast and they have added great healthy options! I noticed they also have a large meeting room that looks really nice, and its really nice to see familiar faces when I visit this hotel. Management here is definitely doing something right! August 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicely appointed room and great service Although our stay was only one night, we had a nice room with everything we needed. The staff was consistently efficient and helpful. We will definitely stay here again, if the opportunity presents itself. August 22, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Family visit. We went to visit family. The stay was enjoyable and comfortable. August 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by clean room, comfortable bed Hotel was easy to find off I-75. Lobby and common areas were clean. The room had comfort beds.. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay! We stayed one night and from check-in to check-out, the stay was great! Friendly, efficient check-in, clean rooms, common areas and grounds and great breakfast! I highly recommend this hotel. And it's only 10 minutes from the beach! August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Comfortable Hotel Polite and Friendly Staff. Free Internet with WiFi About 15 Minutes from Siesta Key Beach August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarasota Experience Really the only "complaint" (which is too strong a word) is it is difficult to enter the property when returning from the beach. There is a light to turn left on the east side of the building, but then the entranceway is aimed so that you're not supposed to turn left onto the actual property (even though we did!) If you go past the property you have to drive quite some distance to be able to turn around. Once you're actually on the property it's a very nice and clean basic hotel. The staff was extremely helpful in guiding us to places to eat (we wanted a dining experience overlooking the water!) The rooms were very clean. The a/c was quiet. The breakfast (it was a weekend) was excellent! Lots of choices and freshly cooked food with plenty of seating. We didn't go to the pool (we were beach bound!) but it looked small and hot since there was no shade on the concrete pool deck in July in Florida. The public beach was only about a 10 minute easy drive. Would definitely stay here again. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by everything was great The staff to the breakfast was all great, I love that it was also central located so that you were near seista key beach and lido beach and to downtown lido shopping center.The staff was great and freindly. we will be returning i also told out of state family that his is the place to go to. August 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly Staff Very clean facilities The only problem we had was the pillowcases all said "firm" but the pillows were all soft in our room. I have stayed in quite a few different HIE locations and know the difference in the pillows. We were tired and didn't ask for other pillows but that needs to be addressed. It was very hot and it took the air conditioner awhile to catch up but it was working properly. Everything else was excellent and the feeling of the place was safe and friendly. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great vacation We spent 13 nights at your hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. No real complaints except the AC was a bit noisy and the toaster in the breakfast room took an age to brown the bread. When we return to the area we will definitely stay at the hotel again. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for parents to relax and Kids to enjoy Felt really at home and well accommodated. Relaxing atmosphere for parents and kids enjoyed the stay. Staff work fully hearted and do the extra mile to satisfy our needs. We enjoyed our vacation. Special thanks to Ciara and Kristen B for their amazing hospitality. Thanks Guirguis August 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Work Great service with a smile. Clean rooms great breakfast and pleasant staff. Have stayed here a few times and will be returning. Keep up the good work ! July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding service/ comfortable room This was a great stop on our trip. The staff could not have been more professional as well as helpful and friendly. The room was well maintained and comfortable. The "included" breakfast was very good - well presented and all the items were kept stocked during the serving hours. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hotel stay repeat customer. I thought this was a short survey. I said it was overall above average and enjoyed my stay. July 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Small room, comfortAble bed Comfortable bed, but room was small and the air conditioner was very loud. Water pressure in shower went way down when people in other room flushed toilet. Door didn't close and lock easily. Outside pool area overlooked parking lot which was disappointing. Staff was pleasant. Breakfast was good. July 19, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sarasota Traveler This hotel was a good deal for the price. As a business traveler, I cannot recommend it. The internet service was very poor. Slower than dial up. As usually, when I alerted the staff, they told me sorry, would you like our 24 hour tech support line. I showed the front desk how slow it was even in the lobby. The next response, "we are looking at changing service providers"......That's it? I have heard this line quite oftne from Staff at Holiday Inn's. As a businees a traveler, internet connections are very important. Slow internet speeds have become a reoccurring problem at Holiday Inn's and Holiday Inn Express. July 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Would stay again This is a good, safe and clean place to stay. It was close to the beach. Wireless was slow. Comfy bed and pillows. Dark room for sleeping July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virginia Travelers Very nice stay; exceptionallly warm welcome by Kevin upon check in. He was always working! July 17, 2014
