Holiday Inn Sarasota Airport

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I absolutely loved this hotel. Will definitely be back when visiting siesta key and sarasota. It was affordable, clean, nice design and decor. Some of the staff was friendly especially the manager. Parking and ammenities were adequate. It was a 20 minute drive to beautiful siesta key and beaches but there is free parking at the beaches. The drive there is stunning. If you get a chance while in sarasota, take an hour drive to Tampa to hang out at the channelside area. Enjoy the views, take a water tour of the mansions, and enjoy a meal at Columbia Cafe.

nice hotel, good room and nice interior design. buffet breakfast for 9.95 is good

Had an enjoyable trip even if it was for business. Would definately go back.

I cannot wait to come stay ahain my family had so much fun

Very friendly staff, clean modern room, good food, drink, atmosphere in onsite restaurant/bar.

My experience was great from the beginning. The staffs warm welcome made me feel right away that I had chosen the right hotel. It only got better as the week went on. These people worked hard to make my stay a memorable experience.

Nice hotel. Everything was up to date and clean. It was a little loud though. I could hear everything going on in the main lobby area from my room on the second floor.

Needs renovation on the exterior, but the inside was updated & clean..staff very friendly, & helpful. I was disappointed that I had to go to the lounge to watch the Cubs game on Espn sports, as that channel wasn't available in my room, otherwise clean& safe.

I checked into this hotel when another was beyond terrible. This hotel totally saved my trip to Sarasota. The lobby is stunning with awesome places to sit and hang out. The elevator has a water feature that is just so lovely. The rooms were clean and so great, but I wish they had a microwave in them. Everything looks brand new. The hotel staff were so wonderful. Room service was excellent and had a fair price for it. There is a free shuttle to the airport that was great. They even had a free washer and dryer on each floor that came in handy. The gym was very decent and well stocked with a variety of machines. The pool is very clean. The location is close to the airport, but not much else within walking distance. Plenty nearby if you take a car. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We have stayed at this location several times.The location is easy to get to and works well for us. The staff is always friendly, and very helpful.We plan to return the next time we are in Sarasota.

Clean comfortable room convenient to the airport, beaches, and other attractions. Dramatic atrium lobby is special!

Hotel was clean quiet and modern.It had decent gym and indoor pool and restaurant.

I have a great experience, from the check in , the room atmosphere, and the amenities. The café is nice place to have breakfast, lunch or diner.

Newer hotel, large and clean rooms. Good for families. About 4 miles north of CBD Sarasota

Easily can go to downtown and beach. Room was clean and quiet. The restaurant was great. I enjoyed the meal. We'll come back again.

The room was great, the food was good, and the price was right. The lobby and main areas were hot and muggy and you could smell mold. Turn on the AC so it smells fresher.

Our 7 day stay was very good. We have stayed at other hotels in Sarasota and rank this stay as one of the better places.It was conveniently located near main streets and the highways. The rates were sort of reasonable, too. We didn't take advantage of the buffet for breakfast (too many Soccer teams eating from it) but the ordering from the menu was very good.The lobby was warm and friendly and the staff was pleasant and always available at the front desk to help. I shared the complaint with another resident that the bathroom lacks sufficient lighting for shaving, make-up, contact lenses insertion, etc. The reading light over the beds were an excellent addition but not pleased with the dim light nor the bathroom counter that was not roomy due to the BIG basin right in the middle with slow draining ...is all that much basin necessary? Please see if Mr. Holiday Inn can put more LIGHT in the bathroom. Especially for folks that have cataracts.

had a great time second time at this hotel with the jacuzzi bathtube. only problem was the man at the desk when checking out was very rude. total turnoff

Overall very nice. Enjoyed the spa especially nice jacuzzi, steam room, pool. Decor beautiful. Some staff was rude, but overall a good experience.

Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean, new, and modern...no issues. Swimming pool was a little smaller than we thought. Kids loved seeing planes come and go...but hotel was very quiet for being next to the airport. Convenient drive to Wringling, downtown, St. Armonds, and beaches. Good weekend get away for family.
