The beds were very comfortable and linen very soft. We also enjoyed the breakfast.

Nice clean Hotel with a very friendly staff. We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and found it to be a very comfortable stay.

Went to Bradenton for 90th birthday celebration. The hotel is easy to find and very clean. Rooms are ample. The staff is great, especially Salvador at the front desk. He is professional, helpful and very pleasant! I would definitely recommend the hotel and will be stay again if need be to go back to the area :)

We had a very nice time, the room was very nice. Everyone was friendly and the breakfast was great. We also like the pool very much. We also liked the location of the hotel.

Hotel is well worn. Room-dirty, ants in bathroom, low water pressure in shower, bedding/towels needs updating. Front desk staff-unwelcoming Breakfast-our morning of check out, hot food items not available at breakfast opening. We will not return

Great location close to the beach and to college. Very clean and friendly

Location is ok, but there is really only one place to eat nearby, everything else is a 5 minute drive. The hotel sits back away from the main road and is only identified by a small Holiday Inn sign. You have to trust the sign because you can't really see the hotel from the road. GPS may mislead you here since the area is an industrial area being built up. It's next to I-75, so if your rooms are on that side of the building, I can imagine you would be able to hear the interstate. Upon check-in, entering the room, there were no toiletries, and only minimal towels. Not a big deal, a quick call to the front desk and I picked those up the next time we came into the room. Next day we were a bit jet lagged so got a late start. Breakfast was good, and they have a neat pancake machine that automatically makes you 2 perfect pancakes. We left the room around 10 or so and were out all day long. Upon return, we found that the room had not been cleaned. No biggie, but we would need fresh towels by the next day for sure. I called and advised the front desk that our room would need service the next day. The next day we left again around 10:30 and found a slip under our door saying room service had come at 9 am and again at 10:20 am but that we had the do not disturb sign on the door, and housekeeping was closed for the day. Afterwards, our travel plans shifted to earlier departures and the room was cleaned everyday, although not vacuumed (it is Florida, sandy if you go to the beach)

Needed a room on a road trip, this place was very nice and clean

Very relaxing! My only comments would be the exersize area could use some free weights and the TV stations were very limited.

The rooms are very nice.The heated pool,jacuzzi and daily buffet breakfast were all great!If you have a rental car,it's a great location to start a trip to an attraction.The staff couldn't be more helpful and courteous!

Awesome! The desk clerk went beyond the call of duty to help.

Great time, friendly helpful staff. We will come back !!

Great experience. Felt very safe. Very spacious rooms. Great swimming pool. Good location.

We were pleased with the hotel - easy to get to - off the road and quiet. The breakfast each day was very good. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. Our room was clean and had plenty of everything we needed. Was surprised however that there was only one washer/dryer for a hotel with 4 floors. I would have thought they would have had one on each floor or a larger one with several washer/dryers. There was construction going on and had we known this I doubt that we would have booked this hotel. On Monday the 25th we were without water - guess the county had cut a waterline. There was no announcement made to let us know this had happened. We did not know that this until we got ready to turn on the water in the bathroom.

The Hotel was a little hard to find even with the GPS, but once there it was great,the breakfast was good and service was excellent.

Aside from dealing with the extensive exterior renovations that were underway, this hotel is certainly worth a look. It's not close to any restaurants, so driving out to eat is going to be inevitable. However, it is only a few tenths of a mile from the highway, so access to several restaurants and attractions is easy. The rooms are top notch and breakfast choices are great. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here two nights. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't pleasant. Based on my room category, I expected to be in a renovated room. Some parts of the rooms appeared to be renovated, such as the bath vanity, but the new light was hung uneven. The carpets and furniture were dirty and worn. The bed pillows were smaller than most throw pillows. Construction workers were outside our window BEFORE 9 AM. There's just something creepy about having someone right outside your window when you're getting ready in the am. I'll avoid this hotel in the future and based on my experience here, I'll avoid other WIngates. Just too icky.
