We tried the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch after our 'go-to' hotel was booked during Spring Training. The staff, service and room were more than satisfactory. We ate at the restaurant, which was also good. The only drawback...we would have loved to have hot water/coffee/tea available in the lobby 24-7. I also missed the free fruit and/or breakfast. I may possibly stay here next year on my trip...hopefully they will read the review and make a few changes that would make this hotel in competition with our go-to place :)
We were happy to find this hotel. It was inviting and the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We were more than pleased with the price and comfort of this hotel.
Holiday Inn would not have been my first choice but this area really has a shortage of hotels, especially during pre-season baseball. This Holiday Inn is pretty new, easy to get to -- right off 75 and major local road. Staff is thin, but pleasant -- as it is for all these new hotels. Room was not ready on time but overall much nicer than I would have thought. We would have stayed longer but fully booked. One slight thing is that 'Breakfast for Two' is really a max $10 voucher. Also, the nice shops for the community and such are across the road, which took us until leaving to discover. Highly recommended for the area.
This is a wonderful hotel. All our expectations were met and more! We would definitely stay there again!
Hotel provided a very good experience, staff was friendly and responsive, room was clean and beds were great. Also, the Alamo restaurant in the hotel was very good. All meals were well prepared with good portions. Would stay here again on my next trip.
We spend every February in Bradenton at the beach, but had to make an unscheduled trip in July. We were so pleasantly impressed with everything this hotel had to offer. The restaurant was great, the rooms were beautiful, clean and well stocked. The hotel personnel could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. We are planning to stay here for a few days when we return in February before going out to the beach. It is definitely a diamond in the rough.
We had a great stay. Nice and clean. Great location, very close to beaches etc.... We will definitely stay here again.
I was in Sarasota overnight on my way to see family, and booked last minute via Travel website. The price was right, and after reading others reviews, it seemed like a nice hotel. Holiday Inn did not disappoint. Everything was beyond what I expected from a chain hotel. The room was well appointed: the beds were quite comfortable, bathroom was huge with great toiletries from the Body Shop, free wifi in the room - all I had to do was turn on my laptop. I meant to go down to the pool or fitness center but, after a full day of travelling, I never made it. Front desk staff was very friendly. Would definitely reccommend.
The hotel experience that my husband and I had here was great. It was nice, quiet, and comfortable for the price that we paid. The rooms were neat and clean, the receptionist provided quality service and the restaurant was an excellent bonus for us. We enjoyed our stay and we will definitely visit this hotel again.
While on business and a little pleasure with my family, we arrived at the hotel with a warm hospitable welcome from the front desk. It seemed throughout our stay that the hotel staff was extremely happy and knowledgeable about the area. Alamo Steakhouse is a must! Being from cattle country, I know a great steak. The Alamo has it, and buffalo steaks! It's no wonder that this hotel is an award winning hotel for the past 6 years. A charming gentleman told me that the hotel is ranked in the top 10 of all Holiday Inns in North America and the Alamo Steakhouse is ranked number 8 in North America. The hotel is located on the county line of sarasota and manatee counties set back from I-75.\n
