Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick B 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lstnfnd55 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NiceGuyDMH 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VJB648 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mellyb1 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!

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JDDav 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
