Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well run/Good value I stay here often because of the value,comfort,cleanliness,and location. You get what you pay for and more and the staff are well chosen.In today's world this is getting to be a rarity. November 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Great hotel, room, breakfast, service and Tim at the front desk was absolutely the best...and no I didn't know anybody at the hotel! November 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable Stay The room was great and the staff friendly. Check in was quick and easy. Parking and building were easily accessible. Breakfast bar had a variety of choices and was all delicious. November 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicely maintained and decorated. Loud A/C unit. If A/C was much more quiet this would be a great place to stay. November 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Air conditioner did not work correctly not a happy medium. Always have a bunch of kids running up and down hallways. Always slamming doors. We will not stay here again. Also kids going up and down the elevator by them selves. Where their parents were is beyond me. I NEVER let my children do this when we traveled. November 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good night's rest Clean comfortable rooms. Staff greeted us promptly and were attentive. November 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Express Sarasota FLA, Great Breakfast Stayed at this hotel for a week. It was about average price for a place to stay, although I wish they could have given us a better nightly rate considering we stayed for so long. Wasn't greeted as an IHG member, just given our room key and retreated to our room. Staff was pleasant, and I received what I requested from the cleaning staff when I asked or left a note. The breakfast was amazing, that was the only reason the room was worth as much as it was every night. The room was clean, but I hated the large TV right against the wall in front of the bed, it was a little much. Not only that but the walls were super thin, so sleep was lost because all the TV's are on the wall that is right next door to the next neighbors sleeping area and it can be heard clearly through the walls. I used the study area on the 4th floor, and while I appreciate the amenity, the lighting was not conducive to getting my work done. The building was also cleaned while we were there, and whatever the chemical was that they were using got onto my car and didn't come off through the car wash, maybe they should think about going with another company next time. Other than that the stay was fairly good. I don't think I would stay here again though. November 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed at! This was truly a perfect visit. The property looked very new and clean. I was recognized as a IHG club member upon arrival. They had warm, fresh cookies and lemon water on the lobby table for guests. The hotels elevator talked to you. The room was awesome and clean. The breakfast attendee was very sweet. I would definitely go out of my way to stay at this property again. I am very happy with the visit. November 15, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by customer comments customer satisfaction will always get you repeat customers November 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by No place to hang Although the hotel would fit the business traveler, it is not my first choice for a vacation/visiting family traveler. There was not really any space to meet up with everyone that was comfortable. The fitness center machines were terrible. They did however have water and towels there, The pool and hot tub were nice enough but in the parking lot. The could cover the fence with something so you don't feel like a car is going to drive into you. The staff was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. That was the best thing about the place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service and great accomendations Friendly staff, clean rooms and good breakfast. Will definetly stay here again. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blown Away I travel 1 week a month for work, so I stay in a lot of hotels most of them are Holiday Inn Express. This so far has been the only one that took the time to call me in my room shortly after I was in to check and make sure the room was to my liking. Very impressive. I will stay here again when I am in the area. You will not be disappointed. As far as the one and only good mark I gave I really like it when there is a waffle maker in the hotels I stay in that's all. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good room at reasonable rates in a good location What more can I say? This hotel has good value for the price, it's location is convenient to where I needed to be. The rooms were clean, quiet and well kept. In particular, the staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all, if you have to be away from home, this is a hotel that helps you feel at home. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Almost perfect stay in Sarasota area visited this hotel the 4th time, the staff remembered me all last three times and did all they can to comfort me again, this time the staff announced me any events in the near area I must see - and they are right, the hotel, the staff and the room was almost perfect and I will return soon October 18, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The place to stay on Sarasota Nice spacious rooms and comfortable beds.

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
