Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly and clean I was at the Venice location for 4 nights and was very impressed .The staff called me by name and made me feel rite at home . As a Woman traveling alone I felt secure at all times.I loved the room it was clean comfortable. and the bed was amazing The breakfast room was clean well stocked and the selections were plentiful.I would stay there on my next visit to the Venice area I will be sure to tell my friends that travel to Venice to stay at this hotel. None better. September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place to stay While I did experience a few minor problems the staff was always more than willing to help out and correct any problem we had. The only thing I would suggest is have a little bit faster internet service sometimes would take quite a while to load pages and always had to reconnect if device went to sleep or was shut down. Noise was an issue because there was a cross country team staying there. Couldn't walk down the hall or get off the elevator without being surrounded by teenagers. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Hotel I frequently stay in Holiday Inns and the one in Venice, FL is outstanding. The rooms are fresh and clean, easy internet access with other amenities such as TV, microwave, frig. The free breakfast is absolutely outstanding with a huge variety of foods presented in a very inviting manner. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff, very clean room and tasty breakfast Staff was very friendly. I traveled with a pet and the staff even suggested places to go. Took advise and definitively will return. The breakfast was very good, the lady in the breakfast area was lovely and very clean. Room was very clean and well maintained. I wish every place i stay was like this one. September 4, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by managere never responded I emaileed this to the manafer and there was no response. Upon check-in to your hotel last night I was given a letter from you asking for hotel feedback. Before I provide feedback, please know: • I am a classic “road warrior.” I have been an IHG Platinum member since it came out. Between work and pleasure travel, I stay in hotels almost 150 nights a year. I notice things that a casual traveler would not. • I realize that some of my comments are outside the control of a manger and rest with hotel designers. • None of my comments would prevent me from staying at your hotel again, because I will if I am in the area. These are made for “constructive criticism.” Following are my comments. • For many travelers, it’s “all about the electricity.” By that I mean I have five devices that require power. The desk electrical supply was inadequate. There was a power strip, but it was attached to the wall behind the fridge and was difficult to access. Many hotels today have outlets built into the desk. I had to charge devices in the bathroom. • The lamps on the desk and on each side of the bed had no electrical outlets; most hotels have lamps with outlets today. On one side of the bed, both outlets behind the table were used so I could not charge a device. • The lamp in my room (117) closest to the window did not work. The on/off button was missing. • The A/C was right next to the desk making it difficult to sit and work next to cold air. (Hotel design flaw, not your issue.) • The A/C did not have a “constant on” setting for the fan. I had a choice of cold air with a fan that would shut off, or “fan only” with no cold air. Dead air is hard to sleep in. (Again, outside your control.) • The A/C wasn’t all that efficient. When I walked out at 6:15 a.m. to get breakfast, the hall was cooler. • There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom. (Again, outside your control.) • Only one bar of soap; I had to move it between the sink and shower. • No soap dish. I never understand why hotels do this; perhaps guests steal them. • The rubber non-stick surface on the shower is coming up; not glued down completely. • There was no bath mat. I used a towel on the floor. Not a big deal to me, but I noticed it. I hope these comments are useful to you. As long as you reply to this email, I don’t plan to post any comments when IHG sends me the normal survey. I look forward to future stays at your hotel. August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel with a warm welcome The stand out feature of this hotel is the wonderful staff. They are friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your stay. I am a big fan of Holiday inn Express, and this hotel is a great example of why this brand is so good. The room, facilities and breakfast are all excellent. Brewburgers restaurant across the car park is a bonus. August 8, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by flees and unclean rooms our room was infested with flees and we treated our flee bites continually the whole stay..the carpet was stained horrible, the pool was in need of cleaning the odor of pets was in the entire building..a lady was getting breakfast with one hand at the breakfast bar and holding her dog in her other hand while she got her food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place to stay While right off the Interstate, noise couldn't be heard. My room was near both an elevator and an ice machine but didn't hear either as I would have expected to. Very comfortable and clean. I would stay here again. July 15, 2014

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel, poor staff The staff at this hotel doesn't pay attention to detail. Every time (and this was the last time I will stay there) there was a problem with the reservations. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean and great customer service We have stayed here twice in the last month. We have appreciated the excellent customer service, cleanliness, quality breakfast and the fact that they accept pets. It is easily accessible from the interstate. The drive is about 15-20 minutes to the beach. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best!!! This was an excellent motel... actually I felt it was the best of all HIE's I have been in. The staff was exceptional in their attentiveness and friendliness. July 4, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel always delivers a great stay. Always stay here when I am in the Venice/Englewwod area. Hotel is always clean, comfortable, and friendly. June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Love the beach Great place to stay and relax. The rooms are very nice and the staff is great. The surrounding area is mainly for a mature crowd but still very nice. Beach area is wonderful wish I could have spent every night on the pear. June 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent cutomer service Had a lot of help from the front desk on anything I needed. Great time at the hotel... June 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient Location and Pet Friendly We always stay at Holiday Inns because the brand is consistent with their level of service and accommodations. In addition, my wife and I enjoy the amenities such as the complementary breakfast (especially the waffle maker) and the gym. Most importantly, this particular Inn was pet friendly and very accommodating by granting our request for reserving a room on the first floor, close to an exit, which was very convenient for taking our dog out for her walks. Last but not least, all the staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting restaurants in the local area. May 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing atmosphere From the staff to the bed a very relaxing atmosphere. May 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by excellent staff! with exception of breakfast hostess first person one sees first thing in the morning, beyond traveling companions, is the breakfast hostess at HIE. nobody likes grumpy. morning, noon and night, grumpy is not the thing. often the food was heated and reheated, and the sausage turned a grayish shade as the salt condensed during reheat. the eggs were not fresh. one knows the crust on eggs is old, not crispy delightful! moreover, if one doesn't care for her job, or is experiencing other challenges in life, it cannot come to work. i am a platinum reward member, meaning that i have stayed at many IHG. i have not, to date, felt as if i was an imposition during the breakfast time.
