This place was so organized and surprisingly quiet. The restaurant is located in the main lobby and the service was really great and convenient. We ate breakfast there. Outside on a property near the parking area is a pristine gator pond so if you have children you will want to make sure they don't wander off. This is one of...

Stayed one night on business. The hotel is clean and the room includes a nice breakfast. The hotel is clean and quite. The night we were there a high school aged soccer team was in house and very well behaved and quite. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and overall outstanding and are great ambassadors for the Holiday Inn organization....

We have been using this hotel for several years, and it never disappoints. You can get a good inclusive breakfast, the rooms are spacious and clean, the facilities are good, and the staff are excellent. One minor gripe: The cycle machine in the gym is still in need of repair

Tim is a great asset to your organization and hopefully you recognize him and his abilities He was there to help in every way and even remembered our names. He is a great ambassador for Holiday Inn. If I had a business I would try to lure him away from you.

I highly recommend this hotel. It's a bit tough to find it and to get into the parking lot because it has separate one way entrance/exits but it's worth it. Excellent rooms and service. A nice pool. Top notch in every way, especially for the price.

We had a nice suite room which was relatively modern. This offered us a bit more space for our family. Unfortunately the pool hot tub was not working during our stay and the location of the pool is not ideal given it is next to the parking lot. The staff were the highlight of the trip. Thanks, especially to Sal...

Checked in late and only had enough time to sleep and leave early. It was clean. Compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations I have recently stayed it is noticeably an older hotel.
