Nice hotel with a great view and a nice outdoor pool. There is a Bahama Breeze restaurant next door that is really good. We left really early in the morning so we didn't check out the breakfast. This was a 15 minute trip to PIE airport but we went really early so there was no traffic then.

We did not have any issues with cleanliness of the room or main areas, and the pool area was nice as well. The staff could have been a bit friendlier (acknowledging us), but the housekeeping staff and food service (breakfast) staff were definitely busy and did their jobs professionally. We chose this hotel for proximity to Tampa, Clearwater, and St....

We spent the last two nights here in a room that was full of roaches. We had to take everything out of our suitcase before putting it in our car and found three trying to hitch a ride. This was the most awful experience I have ever had at a holiday inn express facility. I told the front desk and...

We got to the hotel in the evening and the manager was very nice. The location was great, as it had a great view of the bay. The manager recommended the Bahama Breeze to eat at and was about 100 yards away. It was great experience, the food was great and service too. The motel was centrally located for us...

Hotel was just "okay". It was close to the airport and the free breakfast were all good. The locking mechanism on the door needs fixing (room #402), and we did not get our wake-up call....not cool, especially for an early morning flight!
