Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rafella Hotel smelled awful
I usually enjoy holiday inn express but this hotel was terrible. As soon as I walked in the lobby I smelled smoke. The room we were in smelled too . I couldn't even sleep because it was so bad.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Could Not Sleep I hope to never stay here again.
Bed was very uncomfortable and saggy.
The walls are EXTREMELY thin.....heard entire conversations from my neighbors (sometimes after midnight) who seemed to be speaking in normal tones. Could mute my tv and perfectly hear the program from the tv in the next room. Was woken up by my neighbors music alarm clock at 6:00am.....and had to call the front desk to ask them to turn it off (I could hear every word of the song).
The interiors (all hallways and my room) had a terrible odor, mainly a smoking odor.

Booked in for two weeks, liked the Hotel so extended stay to four weeks and again to six weeks total. Friendly staff, good Wi-Fi, lovely breakfast, great location in a safe area.
Last year stayed at the Ramada Bradenton for two weeks and moved on, Ramada not in the same league.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bigrondud Not up to Par
I stay at Holliday Inn Expresses all the time. This one was not very good compared to what I am used to. The staff was confused about my booking even though I called before I arrived. The toilet continually ran until I jiggled the handle. The TV kept going in and out. The breakfast area was cramped and dingy. The hot water nozzle had crud built up on the end of it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kris222 Comfortable Room, Good Location, Need Better Service
Convenient location in West Bradenton. Our issues were two major ones: the responsiveness of management on our housekeeping issue and the second is that parts of the property were under repair for some water damage and even after the repairs were complete, the carpeted areas were not cleaned up by anyone, even through the next day. While Jade, one of the desk supervisors, was great, the staff did not follow through on her direction. We found on our second day, the next front desk person we tried to talk to just nodded and did nothing. So commitments were not met. Anyway, our conclusion is that the employees are great including the supervisors and housekeepers, but they are understaffed for how many people are staying there. Day 2 at breakfast was SO busy and there was not enough staff to replenish the breakfast items, Coffee ran out, eggs ran out etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lotsatravel OK Place...
I found this place just average. It was clean even though there was some work being done. What I think really spoiled it for me was the condition of the room draperies which looked like they had a been rolled in a ball before installlation and the sheers were ragged. Neatness counts! Too bad.
The breakfast staff is to be commended for their attentiveness to keeping the food going during a RUSH of people.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lili0728 Staff was exceptionally courteous and friendly
We will definitely be back. Accomodations were comfortable
and clean. The hotel is close to many restaurants and the beach was a short distance.
The only thing we were disappointed with was there wasn't a refrigerator in our room. After checking in we found out they were only available in certain rooms.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scottish Breakfast space really cramped for guests eating--some standing.
1. Left bedside lamp did not work, reported. Worked one night.
2. Shower curtain bar loose so center bar wasn't level so shower curtain kept coming to center causing water to drip out on both ends.
3. We wanted to be green environmentally so we hung up our bath towels first night. They were changed each day anyway.
4. Cups for bath drinking water were there initially but taken after the first day and not replaced even though we left a note requesting them.
5. Conditioner, body lotion, and shampoo were not replaced when low; we were there 7 days.
6. After 7 days breakfast menu was boring--no variety.
7. Liked Joe, desk clerk. People friendly.
8. Doors did not shut quietly; tried but not able to.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dicehk Pleasant staff but the property and rooms are worn out.
This is my second stay at the hotel. I find that the staff whilst extremely helpful and kind do not make up for the fact that the property is old and requires refurbishment. The rooms are worn out and the during the two nights stay, I find that whilst visibly clean, I experienced an allergic reaction likely to dust which resulted in hives and runny nose after staying two nights. Decided to cut short the stay by one night to transfer to another hotel.

Nice Holiday Inn. Good location.
Carpet in hallways on main floor could have been cleaner.
Breakfast area was very crowded and had to wait for hot food to be replenished. It was a Saturday am, don't know if always so busy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TylerCBR Average hotel. Great staff
Stayed for a week. On day one my lock stopped working. After two trips from the 3rd floor to the front desk, maintenance tried using their universal key and even that wouldn't work. Everything I had was locked in the room. He was able to get the door open eventually and I was moved. Pretty inconvenient. Glad I wasn't in a hurry.
Breakfast was average. Certain TV channels didn't have sound. Every time my computer turned off it lost internet. I know that password by heart by now.
All of these were minor. Overall the hotel seemed well kept up. Just needs some polishing and attention to detail. I would stay there again for business but not for personal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by George1313 Clean rooms and bountiful breakfast
Also, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I only have one bad comment about the hotel. The walls felt like they were paper thin. We could clearly hear everything in the next room. It was a problem when they stayed up late watching TV and on another day got up early (6AM) to discuss their plans.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ejanem Great location but a few issues
I recently stayed at this property while in town on family business. It is very convenient to Bradenton with lots of good restaurants and stores nearby.
However, I experienced continuing problems with the lock on my door. A very helpful employee from housekeeping stopped everything on her way out the door after her shift to assist me to no avail. After the first night when maintenance tried to fix it and could not, the lock should have been changed/repaired. It wasn't and once again when I got back to my room after a long day, I couldn't get in. However, when I mentioned my issue when checking out, I was given a large credit on my bill to make up for my inconvenience! Thanks!
The hotel was noisy due to a group of young soccer players staying there. I called to the front desk numerous times and they did speak with them.
The bed was great, TV great, but overall property is showing wear and tear. I just with there was a washer/dryer in the hotel and also refrigerators in the rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brifro Great Location for Bradenton
The Hotel is a great location for visiting Bradenton. The Hotel is quiet, clean, comfortable and well staffed by great employees. If you are looking to recruit some professional hotel employees this is the place to find them. They were well informed and on point with my reservation having pre-reviewed the check ins. The room was excellent and the linens new. The only complaint for room 213 was the air conditioner would not run a constant fan and only worked in automatic cycle mode. This was not a big issue for us & only noting this for the ultimate perfectionist guest info. The morning breakfast was typical Holiday Inn Express. We will stay here again when we visit family in the area. Always best Regards, fromang
