Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by richjan front desk staff takes too many smoke breaks
Check in went smoothly. Other times I went to front desk no one was there. Once I even went into business center and called front desk - no one answered the phone. Too many smoke breaks!

Was there for a week on business and worked long days. It was nice to end the day in a very relaxing place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating ans did acknowledge me as a Priority Club member.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Average Stay with Comfortable Beds
This hotel is outdated but has an Awesome-Friendly staff. The beds are comfortable. If you are looking for an average stay this is your place. If you have higher standards I would look elsewhere. The pool is small but for kids they loved it. We were staying at the beaches most of the day so we decided to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crashmeister2k Clean hotel, good room, LOUD AC unit
This was a pretty good hotel. The bed was comfortable, room was clean, the breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and accomodating. Only complaints: AC unit was LOUD, to the point that when it kicks in at night, it woke us up. There are no in-room movies. The filter on the swimming pool didn't seem to be working as there were a lot of bugs on top of the water.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crickethollow Nice room, comfortable bed
Nice hotel and nice location however, a non-smoking room was booked. Our room smelled of smoke and there was an ashtray in our room. We mentioned it to the front desk and there was no interest in removing the ashtray or addressing the smoke smell.

Despite some pros, I did not find this facility, and the specific room up to normal standards. When price is factored in, I was disappointed.
I have Emailed the manager with the specifics.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dicker big disappointment
Tthis old hotel has not kept up with the industry.
The TV selection was horrible.
Not enough papers. only got 1 on last day.
Not enough tables in the breakfast area.
Our room keys had to be reset frequently, at least 4 times. It was inconvenient to get new keys.
The pool area is a disgrace and the pool was filthy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by janice56 Great Place for a Business Person to stay...
Holiday Inn Express does not have a dinner restaurant. However this one has several within walking distance. One great one is the hamburger place across the parking lot.
Great service---great place to stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve49 Filthy carpet everywhere
Behind the front desk, in all the hallways, in the guest room. You can't help but wonder about the cleanliness of everything else.
The cleaning staff are friendly and I'm sure they do the best they can but This place is a typical overused old beach hotel
Make sure you walk next door to BrewBurgers. Everything on the menu is great. If you're lucky they've got homemade peanut butter icebox pie available for dessert.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Strings A Little Bit Off
Our experience with you in Venice included much of the high quality we come to expect at Holiday Inn, but a few things were a little bit off the mark. The clock in the room didn't work, the air conditioning was a bit noisy, and the bathroom floors a bit dirty, as we learned when we used a washcloth to mop up a water spill. The staff at the desk were all great, and we did not mention any of this to them, so we don't know how they might have responded.

Wrote the manager a note when we ck'd out. Was unhappy with the price vs. hotel. Food was not good, esp. the eggs, and the carpet everywhere needs replacing. Also, didn't like the smoke in the stair well. I TRUST THAT THE MANAGER will take care of all and I will give this hotel another try.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BellaBoo Rating should be lower
Good location and comfortable bed.
Room carpet stained and dirty. Bottom of window sheers were very dirty with a broken pull. No laundry bag asked housekeeping for one and was given a trash bag. Asked front desk and was finally given 2 bag during our 4 night stay. Shorted on washclothes 2 days out of four. At pool there was only six chairs. Out of the six chairs three of them were not usable due to broken back or rusted. No pool towels. Asked front desk for towels was instructed to check workout area. No towels there either. Front desk then gave us two small towels. Garbage cans in front of main enterance overflowing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lynncat ?? Non Smoking ??
First let me state that both husband and myself have allergies to smoke and pets.
We stayed at this hotel because it was supposed to be non smoking. Guess again. As soon as we got off the elevator we could smell smoke and a guy was standing there holding his pet. The smell didn't get any better when we got to our room. We complained at the front desk. All of the rooms have a no smoking sign on the outside of them. The person at the front desk told us that all the rooms were non smoking except two (even though there are signs on all of the rooms indicating no smoking# and those two rooms are on our floor; and worse yet , one is across the hall from us. We went out and purchased air fresheners to help with the smell. We complained again the next morning and got the same answer. When we got back to the hotel that afternoon the staff had put three air fresheners in the outlets in our hallway. We put a towel at the bottom of our door and sprayed and sprayed the air freshener. It never got any better. Thankfully we were finally able to find another hotel that was non smoking and pet free for the remainder of our stay.
Also, at 9:30 a.m. on our second day, the maid was knocking on our door asking for our used towels #check-out is 11:00 a.m.); you would have thought they would have waited until at least 11:00 a.m. to come knocking.
The air conditioner rattled all of the time. It sounded like a ball bearing or something going out. The sound was metal on metal.
I will never stay at this hotel again. Our accommodations for the first 3 days of our vacation were extremely stressful, but once we changed hotels the remainder of our vacation was great.
They couldn't move us to another room because they were totally booked and they never offered to help us find another hotel. For all of our trouble they gave us a $20 credit; big deal!

As we traveled through Florida, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hotels because we found the rates were good, breakfasts were delicious, and beds were very comfortable. I certainly would recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Luli Attitude of Front Desk Personnel
We requested a first floor room a month or so before our visit. When we arrived around 4:30 p.m. to check the hotel. We were told that no first floor rooms were available. When we asked the clerk would not say when the rooms were assigned except staff does not guarantee first floor rooms when asked for. The manager was very rude and also would not tell us when the rooms were assigned and what we could have done in order to get a first floor, such as arrive earler. After much discussion we were give a first floor room with 2 double beds (we had asked for a king bed).
Also as I have mentioned in earlier reviews, we do not understand why Corporate makes a decision to give the only special amenity that is given the cookies on week days and not on weekends which clearly give preference to business travelers over people who are leisure travelers
We were also not given any recognition (water, snacks) at the hotel because we are Priority Club Members.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mamamiss Clean, friendly would stay again.
We had a nice stay 2 nights visiting family. The first night was a Friday night, we did wake a few times with what sounded like teenagers yelling and laughing in the hallways at 2am. And doors slamming again the teens. Over all a great hotel experience. Our second night was peaceful staff friendly hotel very clean. If your looking for a place with a grea t relaxing pool atmosphere this may not be it .

My wife and I plus a couple of dogs over-nighted here last week while moving due to a job transfer.
We had stayed here previously (without dogs) several times and always top notch service and comfort.
Everyone from the GM on down were nothing but thoughtful, courteous and caring.
We are moving to Venice permanently and will enjoy recommending Holiday Inn Express in Venice to the over-flow crowd of family and friends.
Thanks to the entire staff for everything!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dewey Staff & service great.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The lady taking care of the breakfast was super. She was even concerned that we might not have had enough to eat.
The front desk and housekeeping staff were also super.
The only drawback for us was the number of pets but that was obviously a plus for pet owners travelling with them.
