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

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Liz999 Not so Good
I made the mistake of staying over Veterans Day weekend. I do have health problems and am sensitive to noise. They gave me a quiet room in the back of the hotel.
There was no refrigerator or microwave, which I usually find at most Holiday Inn Expresses. They did bring a fridge up for me, which was nice.
I was woken up in the middle of the night by the alarm clock that someone must have left on. Breakfast was very limited and in a small crowded area, and they only had skim milk for the cereal and the only fresh fruit was apples.
What turned out to be a problem as well was the location. Although it was a very central location, the road it is on, and the way it's located on it (no traffic light, just a stop sign on a one-way part of the road) meant constantly trying to make U-turns on an incredibly busy road.
The last morning I was awoken this time (7 am) by someone blasting a loud radio in the parking lot, eventually someone did ask them to turn it off, but by then it was too late.
Also I tried to talk with the cleaning woman about when she would clean my room, but she spoke no English at all.
Overall not a good experience, but the hotel staff did try hard to make up for many of the short comings of the older building/hotel, and did try to fix the things they were able to fix.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ComputerCommando Has problems but seen worse
My initial experience was not good. Upon entering my room, I found the towel rack torn from the wall with debris on the bathroom floor and hardware on the sink. Whether someone had just started the repair job and quit or was about to start does not matter. The room was obviously not ready for guests. I called the front desk who immediately assigned me to another room. The room itself was nice and up to the standards I expect. However, the first floor hallway to get to the room smelt of cigarettes and had stains on the carpet. Not what I expect from Holiday Inn Express. Finally the television lost signal or pixelated frequently. Very annoying. These things aside, my final room was comfortable.

First time in the Bradenton area and I really enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn here! Jade at the Front Desk was very professional and friendly. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The breakfast area was clean and the breakfast staff was very nice. The fitness room had great cardio equipment. I will definately stay in this hotel again if I am in the area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike0977 Awful holiday Inn
Room was dirty and not typical holiday Inn. A/c stopped working during night contact front desk and was advised maintenance was on break and some one would be up to fix later. Waited for over an hour still no one showed, called front desk and I advised him was going to bed and guess to forget it. Front desk clerk never said anything just okay. Sheets on king bed had black stains on them bathroom wasn't cleaned. Just overall gross will never stay at this hotel again and don't advise anyone to neither

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by missp great location
Very nice neighborhood and close to everything you need or want. We stayed two nights. First day we walked into our room it was freezing cold. Turned AC up and finally off . The bed felt like everytime I rolled over I was going to fall off the bed. The next morning I requested blankets for both beds. We left and returned around 1pm-no blankets. The girl at the desk said they had to wash and dry them first! I would think that size hotel would have extra blankets!! I also asked same girl about a sports bar across the street-all she knew it was there. Not very helpful to out of towners..
The man at night John was professional & pleasant

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HotWingsnBrewskies Out of the mainstream, yet a great location
This hotel is away from the freeway, and yet a great location for doing everything from shopping, restaurants, and playing on the island. A very nice and large lobby greats you with sort of an unexpected elegance. The desk staff are very efficient and accommodating. The maintenance staff were prompt, responding within 5 minutes, to fix a problem with the AC. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family, and we will certainly visit this property on our future trips to the Bradenton area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by disneyfan394 just ok
We stayed for a soccer tournament. We chose a room with the whirlpool bath thinking it would help our soccer player relax after games. The jets on the tub did not work and no one came to the room to fix it. Also, the second day we were there the cleaning person made the bed with visably dirty sheets. We didn't say anything because we were checking out early anyway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leandra1975 We had a good stay, but hotel needs to pay attention to certain points
We stayed over a week in this property.
What we liked was:
- Distance to the beach and all local shops and restaurants;
- General surroundings of the hotel (parking, terrace);
- It`s not a party place hotel, so quiet rooms and plenty of space at the pool;
-Reception, always friendly we came with request;
- Quality of the beds was good.
What we didn`t liked;
- Our room was a bit worn. We had a room with a nasty odor and the carpet should be renewed, also in the hallway;
- Pool should be cleaned more often, we found a lot of hair in the pool;
- Pool area should have a few more umbrella`s;
-Breakfast area was small, and everyday the same. Practically no fresh options/fresh fruit (and the waitress didn't really seem to enjoy her job).
Overall we enjoyed our stay, however for next year please renew the carpets, remover the hair from the pool and expand breakfast as it was boring after 8 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heartburn3 Near the Beach
I selected this HI Express because it was a short drive to the beach. It was a good hotel. What would make it better was if there was a small refrigerator in the standard rooms. I usually bring my own filtered water and like to keep it cold. I had to buy a cooler and fill it with ice to keep things cool.
Could use some additional hooks or towel bars close to the shower, as there is only one small hook for a towel.
I liked that it was easily accessible to the main road, but didn't get the noise from Cortez. The front desk was extremely helpful, can't say enough good things about them.
