Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GLASGOWBOY Florida holiday
We have stayed at this hotel on a previous occasion but were extremely disappointed at the poor state of the decor. The carpets was badly stained and the corridor door dirty and sticky to touch. The rooms however were clean and reasonably comfortable. When we checked in there seemed to be a problem with a group booking and although we had an upgrade on our previous visit we did not have the benefits of being a priority club member on this visit. The breakfast area was clean and well stocked though. Definitely needs a makeover and I don't think we would stay here again. Make sure you are not located a room near the ice machine or you will not get much sleep.

The previous reviews were very helpful but it is always good to go in with an open mind.
I would reiterate a comment by a previous customer saying the access from the Highway into the hotel is a little scary my advice go up to the lights and either take a u turn or what ever is approriate and then you will on the correct side of the highway so no scary moments.
Breakfast was fine and best if you got to the breakfast room early the eateries locally were good we chose the outback steak house but there are plenty of other places to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Welltravelled Terrific Staff, Terrific Management make for a great stay!
Everything, from the initial greeting as you walk in by the friendly desk staff, to the friendly housekeeping staff that greet you continuously during your stay, makes you feel like an honored guest in this hotel. The breakfast area is spacious and well attended and offers a wide choice of hot and cold items. The hotel has one of the nicest pool areas of any in the Holiday Inn Express chain. It offers both sunshine and shade and a pool that always seems to be the right temperature. The rooms are comfortable and clean and everything in them always seems to work (and work well). The desk staff is very knowledgable about the area and are extremely helpful. The location just off Cortez Road puts the hotel just about 10 minutes from beautiful Anna Maria Island and its beaches, and less than a half-hour's drive from downtown Sarasota or Armand's and Long Boat Key. This was our fourth visit to the area and this hotel in the past five years and we're already planning to return. The hotel staff and management is a credit to the Holiday Inn/IHG brand.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KL87 Average room, good breakfast
Rooms are clean but old, need to be updated. No refrigerator. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Cool pancake machine. I went down for breakfast a few minutes before 6:30am and everything was already set up. The toilet stopped working in the evening, which was kind of annoying but I was leaving the next morning anyways, so I didn't bother calling the front desk to fix it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lakeman King Suite
I was staying in a King Suite. The room was large and comfortable. It had an LCD TV in both the bedroom and the sitting area. Desk area was comfortable and provided a good space for after hours work.
Bathtub was not the best. Very scratched and marred surfaces. Tub is large but not very conducive to showering.
