Breakfast was included with each room for only $10 more and everyone seemed to appreciate that. The hotel is close to restaurants, shopping, the... More

Nice property in Lakewood Ranch area, close to restaurants, shopping, and the interstate. Hard to find anything to eat after 10pm though, and it was a Friday night when I checked in. Hard to tell the differences of rooms on the website do ask.

My husband and I stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. This hotel was more than we expected for the price. The decor is very nice, the beds were comfortable, and the pool area overlooked the lake - so much better than looking at the parking lot! The hotel staff was very pleasant and accommodating.

This Inn is has it all. Yes, it is bigger then your average Holiday Inn with resturant and nice decorated lobby! The rooms have decent space and well decorated with some furnishings that need updating. Slept very well aside from a pillow that almost makes you want to sleep without it. Aside from that, it's well located - friendly greeters!... More
