Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nam27 Great Front Desk
I checked into the hotel all nervous for my LECOM interview and the front desk receptionist, David, was extremely helpful, friendly, extremely caring and made sure my stay at the hotel was comfortable. He even gave me complimentary snacks to relax myself. All in all, great service, excellent! He even called the manager on my behalf to ask and confirm the time of the shuttle for LECOM. LOVEDDDD HIS SENSE OF HUMOR AND PERSONALITY!!!
In addition, the night shift manager, was extremely nice as well. Please excuse me, but i don't know his name, however i can describe his looks for you to know who he might be. He was tall, dark african american, bald. Anyways, I asked for coffee and since it was late at night, he said the kitchen isn't open, i went down the mart and i came back after 20 mins, he had a tray ready with coffee, water bottle and a candy for me. i thought it was soooo sweet, he even help find the number to the mart down the block. Honestly, both of them made my interview very relaxed and i felt at home! thank you!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ilyoscar143 Highly Recommended
My husband and I along with our daughter stayed at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch this past weekend and we were extremely pleased with the total experience. The room was immaculate and the staff service was wonderful. The hotel is located off I-75 and next to many stores and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to make this hotel our #1 choice when visiting friends in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Also, the Sunday breakfast buffet at Alamo located at the hotel for $6.59 pp was very good.

This hotel is in excellent condition....very clean! Staff at front desk is most accommodating. Noise factor was nil and we enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure as it is ideally located to most anything you would want...restaurants and shopping is in abundance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beaner0509 Internet Service and Desk Chair
Occasionally I would lose my connection to the internet. This seemed to occur when I first logged in directly without the Holiday Inn login screen appearing first to ask for the access code. Once I disconnected and tried again the Holiday Inn login screen would appear and I was able to enter the code and resume my internet access. This happened more often during the second week of my stay.
The desk chair was very low for me even when I raised the height to the maximum. I had to use the occasional pillow on top of the chair in order to comfortably use my laptop.

Short distance to Interstate for ease traveling to attraction in the Sarasota area. Hotel is attractive. The pool was excellent w/ myself and family having it to ourself 90% of the time over five day stay. Would return. We stayed on pointbreaks . reserved two rooms and they gave us adjoining rooms with a great view of the lake.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by satisfiedguest! Great hotel!
I loved my stay at the hotel, even though I just spent the night and did not enjoyed much more than the room and the really comfortable bed :-)
The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are big enough and both the room and bathroom were very clean.
Although, when getting ready to leave, my husband had to look under the bed for keys and we ended up finding a shoe - not mine! - and some used cups. It surprised me because the rest of the room, bathroom and hotel in general were very clean.
I would come back anyway and will recommend the hotel to friends and family!!

We stayed at this hotel for a leisure event. We were having a good time in our room until we had a noise complaint. Overall it is a nice place to stay. And close to the restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith C Friendly helpful staff, and excellent hotel
Good location near Interstate but quiet environment.
Staff extremely helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble.
The hotel is very spacious, with a very attractive foyer unusual for a HI (the foyer wouldn't be out of place in an IC). The rooms are a good size, and the microwave and refridgerator are a big plus. The restaurant prices were very reasonable, and main meals are comparable in quality with upper mid-scale restaurants.
The only drawback is the pool being rather small, and could be an issue with high occupancy. Plenty of room to expand the pool - hint to corporate.

The staff were all wonderful from the front desk to the restaurant to housekeeping. The rooms were extremely clean and well furnished and everything worked fine. The safe and friendly atmosphere made my stay a very comfortable and wonderful experience. I would recommend the Holiday Inn Sarasota-Lakewood Ranch to everyone...you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Val L Felt Welcomed, Room Clean, Will Return
We've stayed here before and the reason we return is simple: the rooms are clean and comfortable and the people at the hotel, restaurant and bar are friendly and professional.
One of the things I enjoy is the lobby in the morning (silly, right?). It is laid out well, coffee is available early, tables are designed for devices and there is plenty of natural light.
I recommend staying here primarily because the folks here and the hotel itself are consistently good.

Well, the hotel couldn't control the weather, but the staff did a wonderful job of helping us with directions and suggestions on how to spend our 'down time'...I wish every staff could be as knowledgeable and helpful as the folks at the Lakewood Ranch Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Florida14 Bad Light Switch
Great Hotel! Great Staff! Great Restaurant!
My only complaint is the motion sensor light switch by the door to the room. Every night the lights would turn on in the middle of the night and wake us up. Never got a complete night sleep during my 5 night stay. I would have to get up and go to the door of my room and manually turn off the light. Sometimes this would happen more than once a night. They should remove these and just have regular light switches.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GRMJR Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch
We reserved a suite - perhaps the only suite - and it was a fine room - actually two rooms put together to make it a suite. The layout was fine - but in general - if this was the best room in the hotel - I would not be comfortable in a "regular room" - because - the rooms need updating - the carpets borders on being "sticky" - just a general lack of cleanliness. The staff are all great but they have no control over when and if the property in general needs to be updated - and it is time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarlaCH Great staff~friendly and very accommodating
Very pleased with our overall experience. We had last minute reservations during spring break. We also had some very particular medical issues the hotel and staff took care of beautifully. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Would recommend and stay here again. We stayed 10 days and needed to do laundry, much to my amazement every washer and dryer worked properly. (I've stayed in more expensive places where they didn't).
My only recommendation would be for umbrellas at the pool in the afternoon for people that would actually like to escape the sun for a bit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TonyTony Decent Hotel, Great Resturant
I have stayed here in December and twice in the past month, and have to say it was less pleasant. First time, in December, I had 3 different hotel rooms in a 2 night stay. I was told as I checked in to "go check my tv and see if it works", which my reaction to this is, "if I'm paying you to stay here, you should check the tv before I get here". So I go to my first room and of course the tv didn't work, switched rooms. Second night the toilet leaked and flooded the bathroom.. Spoke with the front desk and they were nice enough to comp me 1 night and breakfast..
Now for my stay in March, My room wasn't ready when I arrived, had to wait 20-30 mins (not a big deal, but just disappointing), then after the first night housekeeping left the dirty towels in the bathroom, after the second night, they did not clean the bathroom well, and did not clean/restock the coffee pot or hotel supplies.
Now I know the hotel had no control over the following, but it didn't help my comfort, at the same time of my stay there was a high school sports team staying that brought in half the beach, there was sand everywhere, and they kept slamming doors all night. It was quite annoying
Now on the positive side, The Alamo Steakhouse restaurant onsite. The restaurant was fabulous, food tasted great and the service was outstanding. Had Amanda on several of my visits, and she was very accommodating. Even allowed us to come in and eat 10 mins before closing, which was wonderful after traveling all day..
I would probably stay up the street at the Holiday Inn Express next time, which I have to say is much nicer and around the same price.

The location of the Sarasota -Lakewood Ranch hotel is very easily accessed from I-75. Check-in was flawless and the hotel is spotless. We especially like the décor - aqua, green, and warm wood tones. Our stay was very pleasant.

The bed was very uncomfortable, I could feel my spouses every move, bed was hard.
The breakfast : waited about 10-15 mins to be seated and the restaurant was not full at the time.
Breakfast sandwich was terrible, muffin was not toasted, and the egg was overlooked
