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!

Paper thin walls. They couldn't find my reservation so I had a room overlooking a parking lot. When I asked if they had another room they said they were booked - I have no idea how. The door to room had a gap on the bottom and the side. Sketchy at best. I give the bed 1-star. Booked by company...

Spent one short night at this hotel and didn't get to experience much of the place but could tell that the hotel was a nice change of pace and definitely a cut above on other holiday Inn Express's.

The front desk crew greets guests with the biggest smiles and makes every effort to help one feel comfortable and welcome. Our request for a lower floor overlooking the water was honored. When you are at this hotel the atmosphere is tropical as there is water surrounding and a couple of 'fun' restaurants within a five minute drive. If you...

This hotel is what you expect as a guest, clean nice rooms, nice pool, location is excellent if you want a hotel close to Tampa Intl Airport. View from the hotel over Tampa Bay is great.

Like most Holiday Inn Express hotels, it's a basic but functional hotel. No luxuries, but it has everything you need for a night or two. A step up from the cheaper hotel chains, but still a good value. Decent-sized, clean, comfortable room. Efficient check-in & check-out. The breakfast buffet is free for guests and has all the standard, self-serve, hot...

Nice stay June 27th with quick access to the airport. Excellent front desk help with smooth check in and out. Solid HIE breakfast. The Bahama Breeze next door was an excellent venue for supper with good food and music. Very nice room. Very clean. Would have been nice to have been offered a room with a view of the bay.
