Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wendy10 Good Hotel for the price
This hotel is very close to IMG Academy, less than 5 minutes by car. The rooms are fine and for the price, it was a clean hotel. My only complaint would be the number of people that smoke around the pool. I know it is a public area but our bedroom was off the pool area and if you left the door open, the room smelled like smoke. The weather was nice and I would have like to have left the slider open to enjoy the outside but could not that evening.

A very comfortable stop on our way to Naples, FL. Very friendly staff went out of their way to ensure guests comfort, with additional towels, coffee maker, express checkout provided under the door, Highly recommended.

Rundum ein guter Aufenthalt. Das Frühstück hätte nur weniger "stressig" sein können. (Zu viele Menschen, zu wenig Platz, laut, längere Wartezeiten usw.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jungo Awesome stay as always
As a frequent guest of this hotel chain, did not take me by surprise the quality of my stay in Bradenton. The cleanliness of the rooms and the clean smell is what has always characterized these hotels. I noticed that in the hallways, they installed air units to make it more comfortable. This weekend the hotel was very busy, yet yield supply breakfast for everyone due to the timely intervention of the staff. The only thing I was not happy is that the new air in the rooms do not have the option of "FAN ON". However this hotel is still one of my favorites. You guys earned a +10.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dan V Uneven quality
Rooms clean and comfortable. But, lack of evening housekeeping staff left some public areas messy, in particular, around ice machine where ice was on floor. Adolescent boys from ball team running rampant at times. Coffee room had no microwave to heat up lukewarm cups, so had to ask desk clerk to do so.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Terrible Hotel
I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting in the Bradenton area and there were a number of things that led me to grade this hotel poorly: 1) Hotel smells like smoke and its a non-smoking hotel 2) I did not have a chair for the desk in my room when I arrived. I let the Mgr on duty know and the front desk person also. I was told they would get one for me right away......4 days later I was still waiting for it. 3) The bathroom floor had hair on it and was never vacuumed for the 4 days I was there 4) Breakfast area was nice but they don't turn on the lights until 6:30am even though there were many people sitting in the dark 5) I am an IGH Rewards Member and never was offered the requisite bottle of water or snack
Overall, not a good hotel to stay in

The Jacuzzi did not work, Called front desk , they told me to flip the switch on the wall. I did that a few times. He then told me there was no maint on call that night. Did not get any type of discount. or anther room. I would have saved 50 dollars by just getting a normal king room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A huge THANK YOU to your housekeeping and front desk staff!
My family and I checked in very late and left very early so our time was short at your hotel but we were able to make it to the complimentary breakfast and I wanted to mention it was a great selection and makes the money worth the stay to have a clean room, comfortable bed and a variety like you had for breakfast. But most of all, the very most important part of our stay was that my daughter, who is 5years old and has, who she calls "Kitty" her stuffed kitty since she was 1. She left her "Kitty" in the room when we left. We returned home we realized that the kitty had been left. I called the front desk that night (I can not remember the guest services name) and she was genuinely concerned with what some would think is a none important issue. She said she would leave a note for the morning staff and would make sure that "Kitty" was looked for. I called back in the morning and Joe, the front desk customer service worker was aware of my issue and started to look for "Kitty". I know it took alot time out of his morning to do what he had to do and as well as your housekeeping to find, what is just a stuffed animal to them but they did! My daughter cried in excitement that her "Kitty" was ok and being mailed to her that day. So, even though we did not see any hotel workers during out stay since it was so short, in and out, they treated us over the phone as if we were regular visitors. The small things, like a little stuffed animal can really make an amazing impact on your hotel guests. Those employees that helped are wonderful, Thank you!!!

We stayed for two days and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very courteous, the breakfast was good, and the location was close to the beach/shops/restaurants. The room and hotel in general was clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and checking in/out was a smooth process.

Last minute decision to visit Bradenton Fl and Anna Marie Island. We frequent Holiday Inn Express and have had over all good experiences with our stays so the first thing we did before going on our one day get away was look for a HI express in the area. Yea! there was one close to the island. As always the price was very economical. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff that was helpful with our questions about the area. The hotel was very neat and quiet. It has a lovely swimming pool and surrounding area. The breakfast was just as all other HI express, which has a verity of options. We would stay at this Holiday Inn Express again.

The facility is clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is great ~ close to many things that are important when on vacation. I have stayed there two years in a row and would recommend this Holiday Inn Express to anyone staying in Bradenton. I really enjoy the breakfast choices and nice eating area. I used the fitness center and sat out in the beautiful pool area. Great place for families too!

My wife and I stayed here for a short 5 day visit to get away from the horrible winter back home. The hotel is a close driving distance to beaches and excellent places to eat. I stay in many H.I.E. across the U.S. and found the staff at this location to be one of the nicest group I've ever come across. Thanks to all of you.

We came to Bradenton to visit friends on Anna Maria. This hotel is only a short drive to the beach. We enjoy the beach but swimming in a pool is preferred. The pool and hot tub is very cool surrounded by the hotel and tropical plants. Breakfast was great with many options including eggs and bacon or pancakes. If you come to Bradenton, this is an excellent choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by morgen great customer service from Exceptional Staff
This hotel should have a 5star rating. Everything is close, ice. Restaurants, shopping and the beach. The linens were exceptional clean. The room was very clean. Staff at checkin, and throughout the entire day/night was extremely attentive. Only complaint was the sofa bed. But, in all honesty they should not be faulted for it------- they are awful everywhere. I really hope that the suggestion I gave the manager at this location will be followed through.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rollo70 Overall Experience
Pros: The location of the hotel is great. The front desk staff were exceptional in every day. The maintenance staff were friendly. The breakfast was good and convenient. The lobby computer was an asset (although, the printer did not work). The pool area was clean. There was plenty of parking spaces. We liked the ice and vending machines on each floor.
Cons: We were disappointed with the attention to the room. One day, we did not get any bath towels (reported). Another day, we did not get enough soap/shampoo/lotion (reported). The telephone had constant static. The air conditioning unit had a "dripping" sound all night long; it was very annoying.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoeBusinessTraveler Sleepless Night, No Staff at Front Desk
This was a reward night I got for my fiance, who was in town to run a half marathon. She was given a 1st floor room with a pool view, problem being that the curtains in the room would not close all the way and people were able to see in the room as well as the light from the pool area coming through all night. Second issue being that there were parties going on all night and she was kept up all night by them. When calling the front desk to complain, nobody answered. When walking down to the front desk to complain, nobody was there. The next morning when she brought it to the attention of the front desk staff person, and subsequently asked that the points for the room be returned for the poor stay, she was told that they would not do this, and was not offered any form of apology or resolution. I stay at these hotels over 100 nights a year, maybe it is time I switch back to hilton honors if this is the level of customer service that can be expected when poor experiences are had at the Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rkn1234 Excellant stay
We travel frequently within Florida for soccer tournaments on the weekends. This was one of the nicest Holiday Inn Express locations we have stayed at. The breakfast was well done and although the first floor eating area is small, the second floor eating area is large and easily accommodated our team families in the mornings. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The pool area was better then most with more of a resort like feel with tile flooring and modern layout.
Only improvement would be to have two queen size beds instead of double beds.
The location was excellant - just off the main street where there are many nice places to eat, and grocery stores, etc. No traffic noise and staff was friendly. We will definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lee14534 good hotel, no recycleables?
Found the stay at the hotel good, but did not understand why their is no outlet for recycleable trash provided - papers, plastic, cans. This hotel is not unique in this fact; I did not stay in any Florida hotel that had this service, appropriate for the 21st century. Kind of perplexing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soccer Dad Very pleasant stay, superb staff
Hotel was nice, location was convenient to local sports academy where my daughter had a soccer camp. My trip was not recognized in my rewards membership though. Mainly writing this review because the staff deserves it. From the front desk clerk, I believe her name was Jade, to the cleaning staff and a new trainee at the front desk they were all exceptionally good! There was not one worry while staying here and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the entire staff of employees, you are all excellent at what you do and you make sure the guest comes first!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Natalie6 Filthiest smokey hotel ever
We were assigned room 131 at first. My husband entered the room first and turned immediately back around and walked to the hall. It was overwhelming with a cigarette smell. Truthfully the entire hotel was nasty. The front desk staff happily moved us to room 331 which was slightly better but still very unpleasant . Overall the hotel needs a lot of deep cleaning, sanitizing and updating. We were rather uncomfortable at this property. We stayed at a nice holiday inn express the former week in dayton , TN and expected the Bradenton holiday inn to be just as good......oh well, it was pathetic.
