Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gutsy Close to Beach
This is a lovely hotel which is just about 10 minutes from the beautiful Siesta Key Beach. Our room was very clean and quiet and the breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Kristen at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. She went to the trouble of printing out directions for us to a nearby restaurant, as well as suggesting several others. Her kindness and attentiveness to our needs will be what will bring us back next time we are in Sarasota. One note concerning Siesta Key beach--a large part of the parking lot is under construction, so there are fewer spaces available--we found we needed to arrive early to get a spot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jasmin/159 Very restful atmosphere
Our daughter took us on her Dad"s 80th birthday for a gataway and beach outing week end. The diningroom staff allowed us to celebrate with our own cake we brought in from publix after breakfast. They were very accommodating
We had some trouble with room key; needed to go to front desk twice
The lower level bath faucet in room 409 did not work; only the shower worked. We did report it to front desk, but we were leaving the following day.
Please say hello to Mary in the breakfast room. She was great. and Sheldon at the front desk .He was extremely congenial.
We will definately stay ; again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Room313 Poor quality
The overall outside appearance of the hotel was nice. However, there were some thing inside that need to be addressed. First, the mattresses in the rooms are terrible. The overall maintenance of the room was sloppy. Meaning the bathroom was not clean. Hair in the corners of the tub and countertops and floors. The air-conditioning fan was loud and squealing. The hot breakfast items were mediocre at best. The eggs are the fake powdered eggs and had a hard crusty layer on top. The biscuits were as hard as a rock and probably from the day before. The other breakfast items that were prepackaged were ok.
This was a last minute hotel booking for our family of 5 and based on previous rating were thought we had a great place to stay. Unfortunately the worse 4 days of sleep I have had in a while.

Holiday Inn Express in Sarasota is comfortable, clean and has a great service. Its location is central. I would recommend it.

Toilet was filthy. Front desk did not rectify the situation and management never follow up. Complained again at check and there was no follow up by management. Very disappointed with the service.

This Hotel had a great location to I-75 and our final destination to our friends. Staff was always friendly and used my name in making conversation. We would use this location again
