In town for 4 days. Great family stay! The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms and building were well kept and in great condition. There also was a great outdoor heated swimming pool. Breakfast in the morning was an added bonus. A+

This is truly a great location. They are so close to-75 yet they are positioned so there is zero road or traffic noise. I stayed there the week of November 7th and was beyond happy with the experience. The room with a view of the pool was large, and was well appointed. The housekeeping staff was excellent and I owe...

The hotel was FULL! There were at least 2 soccer teams there and not a single empty room. Even with all the people, the staff was attentive and johnny-on-the spot if you needed anything. The staff was phenomenally efficient, keeping the food stocked every morning and always hot. The beds were amazing! I slept like a baby. I love this...

I've got to say, for a $100 bill this Holiday Inn Express was very good! They had a WiFi that couldn't be beat, the in house breakfast was super, the room was clean and new. Very convenient to all we had to do in Tampa. I'd definitely would stay here again!

We stayed overnight for Thanksgiving with family. Hotel was convenient, clean, well-appointed and spacious room, hot breakfast, and just what you need as a weary traveler. I did not use the amenities but it does have a pool, business room, and workout spot. The wi-fi worked perfectly.

My best friend and I were traveling to Tampa for business. We loved this hotel, and on a future trip to Tampa we will stay here again. We arrived very late on a Tuesday night, and the person at the front desk was able to check us in promptly. Unfortunately, there aren't any restaurants open at 2am near this hotel....

This is an amazing hotel. The staff is exceptional, especially Helle at the desk and Annette in the management office. The breakfasts are good and ice cream at night. I am in a group that comes 4 times and year, and we are always treated like royalty.
