Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bound4Beach Beautiful accommodations and great staff
We were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable rate while offering high-end amenities and the hotel was beautiful! The staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Our group would stop in for appetizers each night and no matter what we ordered, it was delicious! The entire experience was terrific and I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Florida3309 Beautiful exterior - some dings on the interior
Very modern hotel - but clearly worn. The room had very modern amenities but there was not a piece of furniture that did not have a ding, scratch, or damage. Same with the lobby furniture - clearly worn and outdated. Not a lot of walking space in the rooms with 2 double beds. Otherwise, very clean and comfortable.
Staff is outstanding. Very helpful and friendly.
Bar/restaurant in lobby is outstanding. One of the best in a hotel that I've experienced.

What a pleasure to stay at this hotel! I am a senior citizen and the staff seemed to anticipate my needs. They were just as pleasant when I requested help. I could not use the Jacuzzi in the room, though I wanted to so much. I just wasn't physically able to get in and out of the tub. I would have loved a small jetted tub that allows one to walk in a sit down. But, that's just my dream.
Thanks again for meeting, no exceeding my expectations!

We redeemed reward nights for a two day stay at the hotel. The staff greeted us as Priority Club Members and upgraded our room. This hotel in located near the airport, on the east side of the runways, but there is no problem with sound. This is a well built and superbly maintained property.

The worst part of our vacation. Every time we came back to the hotel there was some new problem. At first view it looked nice until you went a little farther in. I feel like this could have been a nice place if it was run correctly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bad2dbone Clean andTrendy!
Great in-door pool with steam and sauna. There's workout room too. Super clean and quiet rooms. Very trendy bath with walk-in glass door double shower, and elevated sink. Beds nice with plenty of pillows. The sports bar and grille has a good wine selection, 5 beers on tap, and Jay, is an outstanding bartender! Keep up the good work! It's sort of isolated, but there are many things to do and see within two miles, and they do have a shuttle van.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kburnette Modern, Clean
This hotel far exceeded my expectations for a Holiday Inn and has given me confidence in staying is such hotels in the future. The modern and bright, cheery décor put me in a good mood form the minute I entered the building. The room and common areas were very clean and had very up to date amenities. Quick drive to Siesta Key

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by skip22 Recent Stay
The design of this hotel is very poor. The hotel is very loud and the noise reverberates through all of the rooms. Fitness room and pool are both nice. I also liked the steam room and the spa. The food at the restaurant is overpriced, but the bar is okay to sit and watch a game. Overall I would give the hotel a 2 out of 5 rating if you are looking to get some rest.

The hotel was decorated beautifully and was very clean. The check in was super quick and the entire staff was very friendly. We ate quite a few meals at the hotel and everything was really good. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Sarasota area.

We selected this hotel based on its location. It was very convienent for the wedding we had to attend and location to the other parts of Sarasota and beaches was easy to get to. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Sarasota, I travel a lot for work and this is one of best properties I have stayed at.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ercohen042 no bathtubs and hot tub not hot
After two grueling days working a yard sale in my deceased father-in-law's filty, flea-infested, run-down house, I was tired, sweaty and dirty. I saw this hotel had a hot tub and it was close by, so I booked it. We were hungry, tired and sore when we checked in and food was at the top of the priority list. We dropped our stuff in the room and bee-lined for the restaurant. Limited menu, but it satisfied the bulk requirement. We returned to the room and that is when we realized there was no bathtub. Just a shower. I am tired and sore. Good thing there is a hot tub, right? We get down there and the tub is not hot. It is set to 98 degrees. That is human body temperature. I complain and they raise it up to 104 which is good, but the chlorine fumes are a bit strong. The next day I complain again as I am checking out and they explain that they HAVE to keep the hot tub at 98 degrees and are not allowed to raise the temperature. So the hot tub will NEVER be hot. And they recommended that next time, if a bathtub is really that important, to stay down the street at the Lakewood Ranch property. I was very disappointed with my stay and was very grateful I stayed on points. If I had wasted real money I would have been livid. So not staying here ever again

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very unhappy & tired Very noisy
Because of the wide open atrium and the fact that there were some sports teams staying there it was very difficult to sleep at night. All of the kids were partying and making a lot of noise. There should be some consideration for the other guests staying in the hotel. And why weren't the parents keeping their kids under control. I think they were partying too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Pleased with IHG Guarantee not honored and no customer service
An OK hotel but an attitude that defies description. The management does not return phone calls .after promising to call. The management did not even consider the guarantee that IHG posts, but avoided honoring the commitment

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Davidruns Nice hotel, poor staff. Needs work.
I am a road warrior, 150+ nights a year in hotels; IHG Platinum since it came out so, unlike some, I notice details in a hotel. I hope my comments are viewed as “constructive” and not complaints.
The check-in process took forever, and I was the ONLY person checking in. The desk agent, while not rude, was very impersonal. She mumbled and I was unable to understand her. She never suggested a room upgrade. I finally had to say, “Please just give me my room key so I can get into the room.” Not a positive first impression.
The room and hotel were very nice. The bed was great. That’s most of what you need on the road.
Ice makers were only on even floors; I never understand that. Plus the ice “bucket” was smaller than my cup so I had to make multiple trips down a flood for ice.
The A/C did not have a “constant on” position so there was dead air most of the night.
The bathroom lighting (two fluorescent bulbs on each side of the mirror) was weak, at best…even for a guy.
I emailed the hotel (from the IHG site) and never got a reply.
Overall: Nice bed, nice decorum. I’ll probably stay elsewhere next time though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AJ@Quail Ridge A little pricey.
Accommodations were nice however I thought the price was a bit high. I don't plan on staying here on my next trip to Sarasota. Being a Priority Gold Member I was taken by surprise that the hotel did not offer complementary coffee or tea. I got a morning newspaper but coffee was extra. It's sad to say, but a cup of coffee ran a good Club Member away from this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kpierce22 Very Nice Place
Staff was very friendly and attentive. Hotel was unique in its decor style and that was nice. Room was a little tight cause it had a bunk bed room on the end. Food was excellent on the breakfast buffet.
All in all great place to stay. The only negative was that I was upgrading to a suite and I think the room was smaller because of the bunk bed room on the end. I believe they knew I was alone so that bunk bed room was not needed and actually shrunk the overall living space that I had.

Came down to watch the Pirates at spring training. The Holiday Inn Sarasota Airport is clean, the staff is exceptional and the stay was perfect. Scott at the front desk is awesome - goes out of his way to make sure your needs are met. A great place

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat405 Comfortable, attractive room and attentive staff
We had intended to stay only one night, but we fell in love with this motel and the staff worked with us to secure extra nights as cancellations made rooms available. The bed & pillows were especially comfortable, the room was attractive, high speed internet access was no problem, and the flat screen TV was large. We particularly liked the stand-alone shower.
Although the airport runway was close by, this Holiday Inn was so well insulated we rarely heard noise from the outside.
A plus was being near several attractions in Sarasota, Bradenton and St. Petersburg. Overall, it was a wonderful stay!

Love this hotel. What makes it great besides the updates rooms comfortable beds is the employees. Scott and Mark do a remarkable job behind the front desk and the guys and gals in the sports bar do a great job keeping my beer mug filled. This has become my home away from home.
Only problem I have is trying to book a room. They always seem to be at capacity. That shows what kind of place this is.

I'm new to staying at the IHG brand. If this hotel is any indication of how other Holiday Inns are then I'm sold. Everything was quite
Wonderful clean rooms super soft beds. I was pleased with everything. Only thing to gripe about was
One night the restaurant was out of a few menus items.
