      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Sarasota I-75

      It worked for us!

      from

      Stayed here for three nights, found its location really convenient to tour the local area. Yes you do have to drive to the sights and the beaches, but this is offset by its excellent proximity to I75. The room we had was spacious and modern, decorated in a traditional country style. Everything worked well in the room and staff were both friendly and helpful. The room was quiet despite being near local roads (It is setback off a road behind a petrol station). Breakfast was good with reasonable choice. A safe convenient location but only for those who do not mind driving short distances to the local areas attractions!

      A pleasant surprise

      from

      We stayed here for a night while on a family/business trip. It was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is fairly new and very clean. Breakfast was good. Some of the reviews have mentioned that it was set off the main road and tough to turn into. We didn't find that to be a big problem.

      Great hotel

      from

      Had to visit some friends and chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel was close to I-75 which is what we wanted for our travels. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. My husband forgot his toiletries and the hotel manager quickly supplied him with everything he needed. The morning breakfast was quite good. Hot items included waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. There were also hot and cold cereals as well as pastries. Would definitely stay there again if I had to and would recommend to anyone.

      A little inconvenient

      from

      This motel is right off of I75, but about a 20-30 minute drive to the sights of Sarasota. The breakfast was great-scrambled and hard boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, bagels, waffles, fruit, juice, coffee, etc. The manager and staff were very friendly and accomadating. The room was clean. The motel is in a safe area-with all this said I shouldn't have any complaints. I really don't, but I wish we could have been closer to town. I would recommend this motel for people on business or people visiting friends close by. Next time I will stay closer in to town, not because there was anything wrong with this Country Inns and Suites-just because I find it a little inconvenient to drive about a half hour to do anything.

      Little stinky

      from

      It REAKED of mildew. Not bad though after opening the widows and turning on the air. No wifi in rooms. Only in lobby, restaurant and pool. Thought I was going to have wifi in my room. But not bad for the price.

      Nice but pull-out left something to be desired

      from

      My sister and I and 3 teenage girls stayed in a 1 bedroom (king size bed) with pull out sofa. The room was nice and clean. The hallways smelled mildewy but that is Florida. Our room did not smell. The pool was nice and clean. The only issue was the pull out sofa. It was only a spring with a sheet over it. There was absolutely no padding on that pull out. Very uncomfortable for a 5 day stay. With teenagers we did not leave the room until after noon so our room was not cleaned before the cleaning crew went home. The desk clerks did take the trash out for us. I would stay there again but not on the sofa!

      Very good place to stay

      from

      Would highly recommend this hotel. Has a nice heated pool--jacuzzi is too hot though. Breakfast is good--really busy though no matter what time you tried to eat. Its very clean. Had a good time there. Its about 6 miles to the nearest beach.

      Decent at best

      from

      This hotel is brand new - so it's fairly clean. Our problem came when we opened the door to our room - it REAKED of mildew. We were forced to stay in that room for the first night - due to the fact the hotel was sold out. They were very nice and switched our room for the second night - it still smelled of mildew - but not nearly as bad as the first room.

      Nice Hotel

      from

      we stayed here on the 11th of july,04. a very nice hotel,clean rooms and a great breakfast buffet.would definetly stay here again.

      Very good hotel

      from

      New hotel. Very clean and tidy both inside and out. Nice pool. Actually accepted coupon from a travel booklet - a first for me. Helpful staff.

      Negative: Poorly soundproofed.

      Nothing is perfect

      ... need to get an alarm system and then worry about it long distance. The Venetian Falls place. Beautiful inside, much newer than the other places we looked at, being sold furnished, lovely grounds, across the street from a beautiful club house and pool. Lots of activities, very low HOA fees BUT there is nothing special about it - no view except plants out the back. No Florida feel other than it would be warm and sunny. I know that doesn't make sense but I can't ...

In keeping with the theme of one day making a difference, I got an email from the realtor, Janet. I had asked her to arrange for one more trip thru 3 homes we liked in Plantation. I wanted another look before we left the area. I got a return email with ...

      ... new comes on the market. So I think the idea of buying something while we are here now is no longer being considered. The Goldbergs have bought their lot and are chosing options for their new build tomorrow. We are playing with idea of renting in one place for a month, then moving to another next winter. Who knows. I love it here, but I think it is a "visit" location, not a "live" location. But I would be happy to visit again next ...

We brought all this swim gear though, so we decided to look up some places to go swimming in a preferably heated pool. The best option seemed to be the South Lido Pavilion and Pool. It was deserted when we drove by on Monday, but that was because ...

      ... 8217;s best happy hour. It was in one of the nicer neighborhoods in Sarasota and was definintely a bit fancier than we had anticipated but luckily they had two tables outside designated for bar patrons. The happy hour specials were great; $6 specialty cocktails, $5 Grey Goose, $3.75 martinis, priced drafts and priced selected menu items. My first drink was a Hanger 1 with fresh mint, ginger, Agave and ginger beer and was delicious. After that I ordered ...
