I make at least a couple trips to Venice Florida each year. I have never stayed at this hotel, but as an IHG customer that uses IHG hotels around the world I gave it a try. I am not likely to do it again. Let's start with parking. They do not have enough spots and have metal containers blocking several....

Stayed here for two weeks with friends. Great breakfast everyday. Very nice staff. Clean and convenient to I-75 and not far from downtown Venice. The pool area is not inviting. It is small and doesn't get much sun. Good exercise room. You need it to work off the cookie treats!

Pet friendly with nice places to walk your dog, very clean public area, great breakfasts and chocolate cookies in the `afternoons. Room 210 has carpets that need cleaning probably some time ago, but otherwise the room is clean as is the bath facility. Situated across their parking lot from a very nice burger-brew place with good food.

Thank you for your comments regarding you recent stay with us. We regularly shampoo the carpets, however, they are due to be replaced when we do the remodel this year. We do appreciate the fact that you enjoyed your stay.

Old fashioned superb customer service from the housekeeping staff to the owner! Felt like family in this immaculate, comfortable establishment. The buffet breakfast was beyond amazing too! Clearly the best experience imaginable. Can't wait to go back!

We ended up staying here one night because there was a problem with our rental house for Christmas vacation. We have two small dogs so this was a good choice. Check in, super late at night, was a breeze, and hotel staff was amazing and friendly. Rooms we had were a little run down, but the bed was the best...

We pulled in late at night after getting lost and being 100 miles out of the way. The clerk at the desk was great, accommodating and put me at ease. In the morning, breakfast was great. My other half had problems with his glasses and frank, the maintenance man lent geoff his mini-tools and we were able to rescrew in...

Surprisingly poor maintenance. Towel bar fell off the wall, towel rack rusty, floor mat had a hole in it, caulking and grout in poor shape. Lamp shade worn out. Breakfast was good. Not up to Holiday Inn Express standards. Most we have stayed at are quite good. Not this one.

Stayed for 3 nights. Should have moved to another hotel, but didn't want the hassle of repacking. The staff was very good, but usually had only one person working. The room was extremely dirty. Our socks turned black from just walking through the room. There was an old coke can in one of the drawers. The chair and ottoman were...

Had the opportunity to stay at this HI Express for one night. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. My room was somewhat tired looking which I thought was unusual in a fairly new hotel.

We stayed one night here. The room next to us had a dog which they left unattended, likely while they went for dinner. The dog barked continuously, obviously upset at being left alone. We were going to relax before dinner but the constant barking disallowed that. How mean to bring the poor animal and subject it to such a stressful...
