This was a very nice hotel and my first Holiday Inn in a very long time. Everything was clean and new looking. Staff was helpful and let me check in very early because my room was ready (unlike some hotels that stick to their posted time thus creating a long line). The only thing I didn't like was the shower....

Thank you for your feed back. I am sorry the front desk did not make you aware that we have rooms with bathtubs or with stand up showers. You can request these rooms when you make your reservation or at check in. We also offer rates with or without breakfast so you have a choice, rather that it being included...

Very nice entrance, restaurant and lobby, better than most Holiday Inns I have seen. Rooms were decent, breakfast was good, and the price was right. Very clean. Very small pool, and a small but acceptable gym. It was convenient to 75.

I just can't say one bad thing about this place. And I usually have some constructive criticism for EVERY business. There are 5 star ratings and here's why every property should mimic the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch: 1. Ambiance & Amenities - This is by far one of the best Holiday Inn properties I've been to, ever. It feels like...

Not in the epicentre of anything, but this is a great hotel to stay at. Quiet, self parking, friendly and fast staff (we called about a beeping smoke detector and within 5 minutes everything was taken care of). Entertainment revolved mostly around the really drunken hotel guests we encountered during our stay.

We really appreciate your review of the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch and had to laugh at your comment about our entertainment! As you mentioned we are just off I 75 with a fine selection of shopping and restaurants within a mile from the hotel. Publix, Walgreens, Chilis, Pizza Hut, Quiznos, and others are a short walk across University Blvd, but...

This motel is located by I-75 in Lakewood Ranch, an upscale housing community 20-30 minutes east of the oceanfront. Lots of restaurants and services can be found around the freeway exit. The motel is in the rear of a business park/ small strip mall area. There's a filling station at the street entry corner. My room was comfortable but the...

My buddy and I stayed here for Oriole Spring Training visit. It is easy to get to off of I-75. The place is first class. The grounds are very nice. The room was immaculate. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. It is very convenient to Ed Smith Stadium if you are going to any Oriole spring training game....

The front desk was friendly and helpful, although there were a few misunderstandings about housekeeping. The grounds are nice and the lobby is eclectic, with tables and plugs (!!!) for morning coffee with your lap top. The location is not the best though since you are so far from the rest of the city, and don't even think about the...

The Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch is located at the edge of Lakewood Ranch, a large planned community East of I-75 near Sarasota. It is not within easy walking distance of the main street (a lifestyle center) of Lakewood Ranch, but it is about 5 minutes by car. This is not a new hotel. The hotel staff was polite and friendly....

We stayed here by accident and found the best Holiday Inn in our years of travel. Everything about this Inn was first class from the facility to the cost.
