By far the best Holiday Inn I've stayed in... Clean, beautifully decorated rooms and professional staff at the front counter! We loved the large outdoor pool and hot tub/spa with a wonderful view of Florida nature. We will return!

We have visited Sarasota on several occasions but this was our first time at Lakewood Ranch and we were impressed by the area. The hotel's lobby was very open and spacious and we checked into our room early. We had a lake view room which was very pleasant, clean and comfortable. The only problem we encountered was the noise from...

I work in the hotel business and know a great one when I see it. The moment you walk in you notice the cleanliness of the lobby, you pass a housekeeper in the hallway and they always say hello with a smile, and the service in the restaurant is outstanding. The real star of the show however is the Front...

When I work in the area I always stay here even though a typical Holiday Inn is not my preference. This hotel is always very clean and the customer service is excellent. Even though it is close to the expressway I have never had any issues with outside noise. It is a very short drive to downtown from here and...

Thank you for your feedback. The area is certainly growing with dozens of restaurants and entertainment nearby. Did you make it over to Lakewood Ranch Main Street Shops and Restaurants? Its a great place to go while staying with us. Rob Ferguson

Nestled on the Southeast side of I-75 and University Parkway is this hidden gem of a hotel. The lobby is light and airy with plenty of places to sit together or apart, chat or catch up on a digital device. The restaurant and bar serve good food and drinks. The rooms are clean and comfortable and well-stocked with towels of...

This little hotel in Sarasota Florida was just about like going to a luxury hotel. What a welcome respite to return to after 16 - 20 hours a day, 7 days a week while on assignment for a few months several years ago. I will never forget the inviting premises & the most interesting & enjoyable Alamo Restaurant on site...

Nice modern hotel with everything you could want. A little on the outskirts of Sarasota, but only about a 15 minute drive to downtown and then over the bridge to the beaches. Staff were all very nice.

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.
