We stayed 5 nights and this hotel met our expectations

We checked into this hotel for a one night stay. While the beds and towels seemed clean, nothing else was. There was water damage on the ceiling and the drapes were either wet or sitting there with water stains all along the top of them. The walls are paper thin. We awoke to a fight in the parking lot once and to the person above us puking at 2am. We were checked out of the hotel before 7am. When I told the person at the front desk about the water damage/leak he said ok and carried on with what he was doing. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere else.

I did not like that the coffee maker was in the bathroom on the counter. I had to move it to the desk in the bedroom area to make space for my blowdryer and curling iron. When I moved it I noticed that the countertop underneath it had not been cleaned in quite awhile. I had to wet a cloth and wipe it down. The grab bar in the shower was very loose. I am older and have a bad knee. I did not feel secure in grabbing it. I told the man at the desk when I was leaving. I hope they fixed it. There was an area of the carpet near the bathroom door that felt gummy. It felt as if maybe someone spilled a 2 liter soda there and it wasn't cleaned up properly. Because that area of the carpet felt dirty to me, it made the whole room feel a little yucky to me. The number one main negative to me was that there was no safe in the room. They offered me the use of their safe boxes behind the front dest which meant that overtime I was leaving or needed something I had to wait at the front dest to get it. That would have been a huge inconvenience to me so I carried a tote bag containing my valuables back and forth with me each time I left the hotel room. For this reason alone I would never stay here again. Now I know to ask before booking if they have a safe in each room. I just assumed that they all did at this point in time. Their complimentary breakfast each morning was satisfactory. I did not use the pool so I cannot comment on that. The hotel parking lot was dark and scary late at night.

Great amenities, Close to the beach ,why we went, decent free breakfast, coffee good, friendly hard working staff , loved the hot tub and pool deck, we will stay with them again no doubt. Good size room , well maintained inside and out, nice neighborhood. Safe well lit parking .

It was okay. The hotel smelled bad, and there was some spotty mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. There was also a piece of chewed-up gum stuck on the wall next to the bed, and some kind of pink sticky stuff spilled on the carpet by the desk. It didn't make me confident about the cleanliness of the room.

The woman that worked the front desk during the stay was so friendly & accommodating. The room was very comfortable & spotless, I would recommend this hotel for sure!

Very nice hotel -clean, helpful staff, great complimentary breakfast. Lots of nearby restaurants and stores. My only complaint is that we specifically requested a non-smoking room, and there was a very noticeable smoke odor in the room. We mentioned it to the desk staff, as we had been warned there was a heavy fine for smoking in a non-smoking room, and we didn't want to get blamed. They did offer a room change, but since we wanted the first floor, and there were no available rooms on that floor, we declined.

Convenient location to food and grocery. Movie theatre and gym nearby. Friendly staff and room was fairly clean

This hotel was excellent all the way around. The only problem I had was not with the hotel but with online service I used to book the room. I had to leave a day early due to an emergency and I could not get my money back for the last day...was not very happy. In the future I will book direct wioth the hotel for all my personal and business travel

The room was quite cramped for four people for a week's stay. Beds were comfy and the room was fairly clean. Closet had an odd smell and the interior of drawers were not wiped out. Had trouble oftentimes with enough towels and shampoo/conditioner as they seemed prepared for two in the room. Housekeeping was always helpful, as was front desk. Continental breakfast was delicious and had great variety to choose from. The cinnamon rolls were fabulous! Additional help in breakfast room would have been beneficial, as the staff had trouble keeping up with cleanliness and food stocked simultaneously. Location was perfect for a day at the mall or beach, a night on the town in Sarasota, or evening at the movie.

It was easy to check-in and check-out and the breakfast and free wi-fi worked great.

Good location to beaches. Breakfast was good, great staff. Room was clean, great service. Very good hotel. I would go back.

We enjoyed staying at the Bradenton West...close to everything...airport, shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc. Would definitely return should occasion arise. Thanks to the friendly staff!!

Generally very good, was clean and well made up spot on every day. My son liked the breakfast, pancakes, bacon, biscuits and gravy, eggs, fresh fruit...well done. One problem was getting the Internet, the staff had to adjust the router on my floor, after that ok. I would stay again.

It's clean and provides great service. I enjoyed staying here.

This hotel is perfect if you are out and about. The rooms are neat and clean. Lots of hot water for showers. They have a breakfast in the morning that will hold over the heartiest of appetites (excellent). The staff is very personable and willing to render assistance. There is a pool and hot tub if you're interested. If you have children, you my want to ask for an up graded room with a refrigerator in it. They have wireless internet to keep you connected. The location is excellent for going to the beaches, golfing and sight seeing. There are may fine restarants for sea food in the area. For the price I'd stay here again.

Where should I begin.... First off our door would not lock. When we notified the staff of this issue they sent a technician to assist. He determined the door needed to be reprogrammed and it needed new batteries. We warched him walk away from our room. We went back to check the door and it wasn't locked. I was able to secure the lock so we left for the day. We returned about 9 o'clock that night and when we got to our room the door wasn't shut all the way. So all day it wasn't secure. When we confronted the desk they were apologetic and said that hasn't happened before. I think that was a joke.... They also said they would find out who was the last person there and notify us but they never did. Night two of our stay we we awakes by loud banging on our door. Some houlligan kids decided it would be funny to kick everyone's door at 2am. They continued to run wild throughout the rest of our stay. The next issue is we went for a swim. The pool looked clean however when we returned to our room we noticed our swimsuits stunk horribly. The last issue we had was the bed was as hard as a rock and the ceiling in our room looked like it had water damage. Overall we were not impressed and would never stay at that hotel again. So please think twice before you book there.

Was very pleased with all aspects of Holiday/Express motel.

This is the second stay at the bradenton holiday inn express... as our prior stay we found the hotel to be excellant in all ways. The actual room was clean and the decor was nice. The beds were very comfy. The bathroom was spotless, but I wish the towels were abit fluffier, other than that I have no complaints. The breakfast bar was hot, tasty and had many options which changed every day. The pool was clean and refreshing. I highly recommend this hotel.

Our family was passing through Bradenton for a 1 night stay during Spring Break. We had reserved 2 King suites. Enjoyed the area so much that we asked to stay a 2nd night. It is no small thing to attempt to add to a Hotel Reservation at the last minute during spring break. The management arranged it so that we could stay an extra night, and we didn't even have to change rooms! I know this wasn't an easy thing to arrange, but they made it happen! Thank-you to the staff of Holiday Inn Express Bradenton West!
