“Very Friendly Staff, good place to stop overnight.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We stayed in February 2014. The room was big and a little worn. It was very clean. Clean is the important part! The staff could not be friendlier. I would stay again without hesitation. It was nice to be able to have my dog with me.
Breakfast was your typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. The staff kept everything stocked.

Staff was friendly and courteous. Room was adequate for our needs. The location of the hotel was perfect for our multiple trips to surrounding communities, Venice, Englewood and Rotonda. Love the pancakes!!!

Over 6 miles from downtown Venice, this establishment needs to describe its location with more accuracy.

This apart it was what we expected from this well-known chain, no better & no worse.

Strike that - the coffee was better than some we have found.

Rooms are very tight, elevator extremely slow, breakfast substantial. Parking lot cramped and you could not loop around from one lot to another. There was a little league tournament in the area so a lot of 7-8 year olds and siblings running the halls and playing soccer in the breakfast nook in the AM. Heard one staff member comment that she was going to drink a lot to make up for the issues going on. The morning breakfast lady, Shirley, was great, keeping everything stocked with the kids passing thru.

Very clean and quiet and the staff were especially polite and friendly. Bed was comfortable and breakfast had many options. All of this has nothing to do with why I'm writing this. We left the hotel headed for Venice Beach for shopping and lunch. When we arrived at VB my wife noticed that we did not have our ipad with us in the car. I was sure I put it on the tv, but it must have got pushed to the back. We contacted the front desk and told them of our problem and that we were on the way back. The front desk clerk said that nothing had been turned in yet, but she would check. As we drove back to the hotel we of course talked about all the night mare stories you here of people forgetting things in the room and never having them recovered. The ipad was a $700 gift and also was one of the major tools we were using as we traveled from Ohio to Florida. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the front door. The staff at the desk had our ipad in hand and mentioned that housekeeping brought it down. This was the same housekeeping staff that was very very friendly that morning and that we raved about. We insisted we meet the housekeeper and give her a small token of our appreciation. This also reinforced for her and for us that there are honest people in the world who would always do what's right in a situation like this. Thus the title "Restored our Faith". Thank you Holiday in Express. You'll be seeing us again soon. While cleanliness and friendliness of staff has always been at the top of our list of requirements, we can now also add honesty. Great job staff!

Stayed here first two nights of our March break vacation, due to parents' condo being full with my brother's family. Once we had to move over to the condo, we did not want to go! Shirley in the Breakfast area was very friendly and kept the place well stocked and clean. The beds we're comfy and the place was quiet each night. Good location close to I75 and a few miles from the Gulf beaches. The only complaint I have is the lack of parking. The place was full, and if you are the last one there, there will be no spots in the main lot. I ended up parking at the curb near the front door and moved my car into an empty spot, next morning. Overall good hotel, and decent value for the money. A nice, we'll run Holiday Inn Express.

Quiet, clean, friendly staff and a wide variety of breakfast choices! We were house-shopping, and this location was easy to get to.......right off a main road, yet quiet. We would definitely stay here again.
