Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best of the Best We stayed at this great location for a week while attending the Sarasota 2014 Dragonboat Festival from October 23rd till October 30. Everything about the hotel was top notch. The staff went over and above to make us feel at home and welcome. My roommate forgot her camera in the room and discovered it missing an hour before our flight when we were already at the airport and had returned the rental car. She desperately phoned the hotel to see if they could send the camera by cab to the airport. Lo and behold, the manager himself brought the camera out to her.....what a relief! That was so kind and generous of him to do so and it was greatly appreciated. We will stay here any time we return to Sarasota!!!!! October 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel, terrible restaurant and service Typical Florida looks and charm, comfortable bed, clean rooms, overall very happy. However the service at the restaurant that's inside the hotel (Alamo steakhouse) is a joke. Unprofessional and untrained servers, clueless about the menu and food knowledge in general. Very slow service too. My waitress took at least 10 minutes to come to the table, never brought me my beer, I had to give an explanation to the bartender about what happened so she would give me my beer, ordered an "end cut" prime rib (medium) and got an overcooked, grainy, chewy, inedible piece of meat on my plate. I would have returned it but my server never came back to the table to check on me. When she finally showed up she said : I hope you didn't think I ignored you" !!!!! I was planning on enjoying a nice after dinner drink and a dessert but after my experience I couldn't wait to get out of there not to get annoyed any further. Please train your people, putting food in front of people is not enough. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home away from home What a pleasure to stay at this property. Located in a nice area with plenty of space to take long exercise walks. The Alamo Steak House was great and the service was perfect. Highly recommend both the hotel and the restaurant. October 27, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Hotel Beautiful hotel with friendly staff, fast check in and check out. Love the decor in my room, and everything was clean and loved the shower in my room instead of the tub. Had a nice view of the new mall in Sarasota. October 22, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Sarasota, Florida Great hotel with a friendly staff. If you are travelling to the Sarasota-Bradenton airport, this hotel is perfectly located for you. They are putting the finishing touches on a nearby mall so there is plenty to do. October 13, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding stay in comfort and convenience I was on a long weekend golfing trip and chose the Holiday Inn for convenience to the clubs I was playing. I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the lobby and the highly professional and personal way I was greeted by the front desk. The room was spacious and comfortable as were the bar and restaurant. This was an excellent choice to make a good weekend great. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Holiday Inn This is a very nice Holiday Inn. We received great service from all the staff. This hotel has a nice layout and is very clean. October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staycationing in Sarasota We often like to escape the Miami madness and just a short drive away we find a place to truly relax. This is a boutique hotel that offers the ultimate weekend getaway experience. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when we come to Sarasota! September 24, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weekend Tournament Hotel very quiet and in good area. Had problem with day manager getting an late checkout as an IHG member September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Holiday Inn Great Hotel in the area. Definitely better than expected. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Front Desk I checked into the hotel all nervous for my LECOM interview and the front desk receptionist, David, was extremely helpful, friendly, extremely caring and made sure my stay at the hotel was comfortable. He even gave me complimentary snacks to relax myself. All in all, great service, excellent! He even called the manager on my behalf to ask and confirm the time of the shuttle for LECOM. LOVEDDDD HIS SENSE OF HUMOR AND PERSONALITY!!! In addition, the night shift manager, was extremely nice as well. Please excuse me, but i don't know his name, however i can describe his looks for you to know who he might be. He was tall, dark african american, bald. Anyways, I asked for coffee and since it was late at night, he said the kitchen isn't open, i went down the mart and i came back after 20 mins, he had a tray ready with coffee, water bottle and a candy for me. i thought it was soooo sweet, he even help find the number to the mart down the block. Honestly, both of them made my interview very relaxed and i felt at home! thank you!!!! September 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by clean rooms, efficient staff in nice locatio enjoyed stay. only thing would have liked at least continental breakfast (fruit, juice, muffins) included for my son August 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly Recommended My husband and I along with our daughter stayed at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch this past weekend and we were extremely pleased with the total experience. The room was immaculate and the staff service was wonderful. The hotel is located off I-75 and next to many stores and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to make this hotel our #1 choice when visiting friends in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Also, the Sunday breakfast buffet at Alamo located at the hotel for $6.59 pp was very good. August 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2 nite stay Very nice place. would love to visit again in the future. basic but clean and well maintained. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff This hotel is in excellent condition....very clean! Staff at front desk is most accommodating. Noise factor was nil and we enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure as it is ideally located to most anything you would want...restaurants and shopping is in abundance. August 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice ! Nice hotel, very comfortable. The room was clean and neat. The breakfast served in the hotel restaurant was very good. I would definitely stay there again!!! August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Internet Service and Desk Chair Occasionally I would lose my connection to the internet. This seemed to occur when I first logged in directly without the Holiday Inn login screen appearing first to ask for the access code. Once I disconnected and tried again the Holiday Inn login screen would appear and I was able to enter the code and resume my internet access. This happened more often during the second week of my stay. The desk chair was very low for me even when I raised the height to the maximum. I had to use the occasional pillow on top of the chair in order to comfortably use my laptop. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyed Lakewood Ranch location Short distance to Interstate for ease traveling to attraction in the Sarasota area. Hotel is attractive. The pool was excellent w/ myself and family having it to ourself 90% of the time over five day stay. Would return. We stayed on pointbreaks . reserved two rooms and they gave us adjoining rooms with a great view of the lake. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel! I loved my stay at the hotel, even though I just spent the night and did not enjoyed much more than the room and the really comfortable bed :-) The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are big enough and both the room and bathroom were very clean. Although, when getting ready to leave, my husband had to look under the bed for keys and we ended up finding a shoe - not mine! - and some used cups. It surprised me because the rest of the room, bathroom and hotel in general were very clean. I would come back anyway and will recommend the hotel to friends and family!! July 30, 2014
