Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 comfortable bed and great service We liked the fast check in service as we came in very late from a long day of travel. Breakfast in the morning was good and glad it was open till 9:30 am as we slept in a little. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Off Campus Accommodations The rates offered result in a significant savings as opposed to staying at the IMG Academy Lodge. A short 10 minute ride to the Academy does not pose an inconvenience. November 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort and Safety I had a very pleasurable experience here. The staff made me very welcome and accommodated my needs more than sufficiently in the least amount of time. I was extremely impressed with management and staff of the hotel. The only thing I noted was that the hotel could do with is a very good, deep thorough cleaning. November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable Very clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast. Will stay again at the same hotel, but will ask for a bigger room, not on the ground floor. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hassle-free travel As a frequent traveler, it's always nice returning to Holiday Inn Express October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place to Stay Holiday Inn Express makes you feel like you are home! October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, and good breakfast options Had a horrible experience in a nearby hotel for our first night of vacation. Got online and found the Holiday Inn Express Bradenton West. Booked the next six nights. Couldn't be happier with our results.... The front desk was very attentive and personable. The breakfast staff was great as well. Our room was clean and comfortable every day of our stay. I will gladly return to this hotel to stay as well as recommend it to friends and family... Dan October 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Inadequate furnishings in room Overall, this is a nice, well-kept hotel. However, in a room with 2 double beds sleeping 4, we were provided with only one luggage rack. The dresser was very small and taken up with a TV set. I dislike having to keep my suitcase on the floor (too much bending to pack and unpack) but there was no other choice. The bathroom was inconvenient, also, with no hook or towel rack located near the sink. Little things, I know. But sometimes it's the little things that get you! October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast The breakfast buffet was very good but it would be great if you could change the hot items at least every other day for your guests that are staying multiple nights. The pancakes although the concept was interesting and something I hadn't seen before were tasteless and rubbery. Otherwise there was a nice selection and was always kept full and the area was kept clean. October 15, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall great stay! My family and I needed to book a couple of rooms in this specific area due to a funeral. I have been vacationing in Bradenton my entire life but never needed to book a hotel for my stay. With that said we chose the Holiday Inn and were very pleased. Jason greeted us with a smile and quickly had us in our room. I would consider this a small hotel located minutes from the beautiful Gulf Beaches. Easy walk next door to the Oakmont Theatre if you have any downtime. (you will love the reclining seats there!) Stick with the yogurts or cereals for breakfast. The other hot foods were bland. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Check out was simple. October 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by swim pool nice place to stay however i have a 25 year old daughter who needed the pool life. prior to arriving I called and spoke to the manager to make sure the lift was in good working order and he assured me it was.. When I arrived and for the duration of our visit it did not work. the lift was the primary reason we stayed there. The previous year at the same time we stayed there and the lift was not working at that time either October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great weekend visit Hotel was clean and staff was especially helpful and friendly. Close to restaurants. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vacation Great location, convenient to shopping areas and close to the beaches October 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Would Not Stay Here Again Staff was great, room was desperately lacking in comfort, functionality and repairs. The rooms need to be updated and not just with new furniture. There was a pungent smell of cigarette odor through the corridors and common areas, especially the pool area. October 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice staff Clean hotel - nice staff - good breakfast - would stay at this location again if in the area. October 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Uncomfortable bed Nice hotel in appearance but very uncomfortable beds and pillows. October 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Internet Access Needs Updating The internet was satisfactory, but it makes you login and use password too often. We should be able to stay logged in while on the property. Otherwise, all my experiences were above average. Thanks, Bill September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Entire Visit We stayed here last year around the same time and the staff were completely not friendly, not helpful etc. So when we checked in I was expecting the same staff. Thank goodness they were gone! Diana was extremely friendly and helpful. Joe brought me everything I needed for my adult handicapped son. They had all the tools for the deaf and actually someone who knew how to install. Joe as friendly as Diana and both have great smiles. The room, so clean and fresh smelling and every time we passed the housekeeping staff oh what a smile and a nice greeting she gave us! I don't remember all the staffs name but Jason Diana and Joe made this trip for us! The breakfast had a lot to choose from, a great variety, my only problem with this is the hot items were lukewarm at best, could be hotter! This is the way a hotel experience should be: friendly, welcoming, clean and making it so you would want to return again and again and again which we will be back next year!!!!! Thank you! September 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty nice standard room Nice room, very nice staff. Only there for 2 nights and did not use pool nor exercise room. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn fare. The muffins could be a little fresher. Pancakes were a little thin. September 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bradenton Holiday Inn This was an excellant hotel to stay at, it was convenient and had an excellant appearance from the exterior and the inside of the hotel was just as nice. The staff member checking me in was very curteous and made the check in process a pleasant experience. September 26, 2014

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terbial bed and service Not happy with this stay. Checked out 2 days earley and was never asked why or how my stay was. September 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rooms are spotless, great service and a smile around every corner :) My stay was very enjoyable and I encountered engaged and polite staff everyday - from Jason and Justin at the Front Desk to Sonya and Michael from management! September 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Great service but not so great facility. Needs lots of TLC in terms of maintenance and facilities and amenities. Need to stay near my sister who lives close by and has stage 4 cancer. This hotel would be my choice every visit if some upgrading will be done. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Nice property and room was clean and comfortable. September 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Service Solid staff, good not exceptional service. Food Average, minimum acceptable choices. Coffee barely palatable. Rooms on the smallish side. September 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ok but for the smell had a decent stay except for obnoxious chemical smell in room. not sure if that was cleaning product or an attempt to mask moldy smell September 11, 2014
