Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice staff Clean hotel - nice staff - good breakfast - would stay at this location again if in the area. October 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Uncomfortable bed Nice hotel in appearance but very uncomfortable beds and pillows. October 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Internet Access Needs Updating The internet was satisfactory, but it makes you login and use password too often. We should be able to stay logged in while on the property. Otherwise, all my experiences were above average. Thanks, Bill September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Entire Visit We stayed here last year around the same time and the staff were completely not friendly, not helpful etc. So when we checked in I was expecting the same staff. Thank goodness they were gone! Diana was extremely friendly and helpful. Joe brought me everything I needed for my adult handicapped son. They had all the tools for the deaf and actually someone who knew how to install. Joe as friendly as Diana and both have great smiles. The room, so clean and fresh smelling and every time we passed the housekeeping staff oh what a smile and a nice greeting she gave us! I don't remember all the staffs name but Jason Diana and Joe made this trip for us! The breakfast had a lot to choose from, a great variety, my only problem with this is the hot items were lukewarm at best, could be hotter! This is the way a hotel experience should be: friendly, welcoming, clean and making it so you would want to return again and again and again which we will be back next year!!!!! Thank you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty nice standard room Nice room, very nice staff. Only there for 2 nights and did not use pool nor exercise room. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn fare. The muffins could be a little fresher. Pancakes were a little thin. September 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bradenton Holiday Inn This was an excellant hotel to stay at, it was convenient and had an excellant appearance from the exterior and the inside of the hotel was just as nice. The staff member checking me in was very curteous and made the check in process a pleasant experience. September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Staff was pleasant and accommodating. We would stay again. September 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stay The hotel was comfortable and well maintained. Staff did a good job of making the stay go well September 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terbial bed and service Not happy with this stay. Checked out 2 days earley and was never asked why or how my stay was. September 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rooms are spotless, great service and a smile around every corner :) My stay was very enjoyable and I encountered engaged and polite staff everyday - from Jason and Justin at the Front Desk to Sonya and Michael from management! September 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Great service but not so great facility. Needs lots of TLC in terms of maintenance and facilities and amenities. Need to stay near my sister who lives close by and has stage 4 cancer. This hotel would be my choice every visit if some upgrading will be done. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Nice property and room was clean and comfortable. September 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Service Solid staff, good not exceptional service. Food Average, minimum acceptable choices. Coffee barely palatable. Rooms on the smallish side. September 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ok but for the smell had a decent stay except for obnoxious chemical smell in room. not sure if that was cleaning product or an attempt to mask moldy smell September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast Bliss I confess that I go to HEIs because I love the breakfasts. This time, though, the staff were the ones that swept me off my feet--ALL of them (but particular kudos go out to Joe at the front desk as he helped me at a critical time so that I could get to a VERY important meeting! Thank you, Joe!) September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay It's a good play to stay. Not really close to the beach, but quiet and clean September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable atmosphere with great service. Beautiful pool yard. Our room had a semi private walk out to the pool from our room. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value We had business in the area so, we needed a few rooms. Fantastic value!!! Staff very pleasant and property was very clean. If we are in the area on business; we will stay here again. September 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing Stay We were very disappointed with the property during our recent stay. We have stayed at this property many times over the past 10 years as we have family that live very nearby. We have seen the overall condition of the property decline over the years. Specifically the carpets are not clean, either in the hallways or the guest room. the furniture has stains. While the linens were clean the condition of the bed was not good. Of particular concern during our recent stay was the offensive odor in the hallway. This odor seeped into our room and kept us awake the first night we were there. Unless the condition of this property improves over the next several months we will be finding another hotel for upcoming stay in Bradenton in December of this year. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great First time visiting Bradenton and stayin in this hotel. When i got there there was an issue with my room but the Manager was Wonderful and found me a room.and not onley that he upgraded my room to a Suite (king bed and hot tub) for same price...i was excited. Overall wonderfull staff wonderful hotel. Would come here every year if possible. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable guests rooms The only fault I can find with this hotel is that you can not buy their wonderful bed pillows! They were so comfortable I wanted to take one with me! August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Customer I had a wonderful stay in the Bradenton Holiday Inn. I didn't have time to complain of my A/C discomfort because I was in and out. My discomfort may due to me not checking on my requirements and checking the thermostat. OVER ALL I HAD A WONDERFUL STAY August 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by T at Bradenton This is the 7th time I have stayed here and I have always been met with professionalism and respect. My status is platinum and has been for years. This is one of the best mid level places I have been to. Convienient to all types of leisure activities. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sehr schön und gute Lage Das Hotel erscheint, wie Hotels in dieser Kategorie in den USA nunmal erscheinen. Jedoch war alles sehr sauber und bestens in Schuss. Alle waren freundlich. Überrascht hat mich das Frühstück. Es war keine Offenbarung aber doch einen Tick besser als z.B. an anderen Orten, da es auch z.B. Rührei und Speck gab. Als Platinum Mitglied habe ich ohne danach zu fragen eine Suite bekommen. War sehr angenehm. Immer wieder. August 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressed ... I was impressed by the quality of the room. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, as was the cooling system in the room. The common areas were very clean and the staff was very friendly. The only thing was the noise level outside of my room early in the morning. There was a lot of loud talking in the hallway by the housekeeping personnel. Loud enough to wake me up. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Supercalifragilicious After explaining our need for a high bathroom stool and refrigerator for meds for a 91 year old guest , the front desk staff, sales manager and maintenance staff cheerfully came up with the perfect room. The room was clean and comfortable as was the king bed. (Only suggestion: handicap rooms need to be offered with a fridge and two double beds since many in need of such a room are accompanied by a companion.) The staff was outstanding. As for the breakfast. WOW! A lot offered, but who could get by those delicious signature cinnamon rolls? One of those with juice, a banana and coffee started the day just right. Thanks to all. August 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable bed I have stayed here before and posted a better review. The pool are was a big disappointment. Last time we didn't use it so I did not notice that there is very little shade. A couple of people from our group asked foe umbrellas and were told that they didn't supply them or another person said they were all broken. We had booked 5 rooms for a family wedding and planned in spending our free time at the pool. We went as far as buying to beach umbrellas but they did not work out well. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location This hotel was in a great location for access to Anna Maria Island and Cortez, FL. The interior and exterior are well maintained, the room was comfortable with a desk area and chair for relaxing. I particularly appreciated the stairway to the 2nd floor from the lobby. Service personnel were friendly and wifi was adequate. I recommend Holiday Inn Express. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean, comfortable, friendly and safe It was comforting to know that on our road trip there was always a clean, comfortable, friendly and safe place to stay no matter where we stopped along the way. And the 800 number for reservations helped tremendously as we never quite knew where we would be stopping. They helped us find the nearest Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express, made sure we got reservations even though they were always last minute and gave excellent directions and direct phone numbers to each new location. Will stay only at Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express for all future trips. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Local Escape We stayed at this hotel to spend more time at the Ringling Museum and beaches. We were offered extended check out of 2:00pm as a priority club member. The staff at this hotel are wonderful. Very polite and professional. The breakfast was excellent. All areas of the hotel were well kept and clean. This hotel is in a great location for the beach, restaurants and stores (right next door). There are also some pubs within walking distance for adults to enjoy without driving afterward. Although I wouldn't recommend this place for children, adults will enjoy the stay. July 24, 2014
