Sarasota, Florida
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The friendliest staff work at this establishment. Extremely helpful and accommodating! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Warm cozy lobby with fireplace. As well as a fireplace in the dinning room and library/computer area. Washer/Dryer available, workout area and pool with jacuzzi. Typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. Nice location near to restaurants.

Great location close to both the airport (not disturbed by noise from the airport) and to downtown. Good parking with a variety of restaurants nearby ranging from fast food, cheaper eats with good food and medium priced places. Take note as you approach this property it looks like it only has two floors, but in fact there are three floors....

i was on flying from the Arctic Circle. I needed a place close to airport. I had a flight out early the next morning. The shuttle picks up late a night. They delivered my back to the airport early the next morning. The staff was accommodating.

This is a great place to stay, and conveniently located in Downtown. Close to lots of restaurants, shops (i.e. Walmart, Target, Costco, souvenir shops in downtown), and activities (i.e. museum, zoo, national park public lands, visitor center). It's also a good place to do short (30-40 minutes drive) excursions (i.e. Girdwood, for skiing; Portage Valley Glacier; Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center)....

Hello Helen. It's great to hear that you enjoyed a "nice and cozy" stay. I'm sorry to hear that the Jacuzzi jets did not work. The jets need to be turned on by a timer/dial on the wall which may have been the problem, but I will have our maintenance team take a look at it right away. I appreciate...

Hello Meowmeow4, I apologize for the late night call and accusation from our front desk so late in the evening. Although we will continue to investigate reports of smoking of any kind, we could have used more tact. This situation will be addressed immediately with the staff. I appreciate this training opportunity and hope you give us a chance to...

We arrived late at night, and the desk service was really helpful and friendly. It's a quick drive from the airport, and then a quick drive to downtown Anchorage. We needed to pick up some odds and ends, and the hotel has a regional shuttle that will take you, free, to the local Walmart. The hotel is really well run...

Loved this hotel. The room is weird. I would have been fine with a regular room, but I did ask for an upgrade, so thanks! The best thing about this HIX is the breakfast. I've stayed in enough, hundreds, that I would rate these guys near the top of the game. I. Love the snoozapallooza too!

Homer, Alaska
Reviewed 12 November 2016

Overall enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was pretty good, not bad for continental. My main complaint was the noise. All night long, heard everything going on in the hallway...knocking on other rooms, kids running, etc. The location is great, there's food across the parking lot - the pizza place was great!

There was black mold in the bathroom. After I posted a review on a survey that they sent me, they blocked the review on their website and then sent me to a link to edit the review that was in German. Nice try. Stay with caution.

I asked for a quiet room and got it. In my six nights there, I only recall one incident of unruly children running through the hallway and waking people up. Very pleasant stay. Breakfast was HIE standard - everything I wanted - and was always ready at 6:00 AM which suited my schedule perfectly. Front desk staff was always helpful...
