Nice and clean and new-looking, but with a very noisy air conditioner. When we mentioned this to the front desk they looked baffled. Never heard of the problem, and new of no remedy. We had to turn the AC off so we could sleep, or it suddenly would come on with a loud noise. I do not think these AC... More

My room was clean and comfortable and met all my expectations. However, when I went for breakfast, I was very disappointed. The scrambled eggs had a cardboard texture and the sausage was cold and resembled leather. I then tried a bagel and found that there was no butter. My cup of coffee was the best part of the entire breakfast.

My family and I stayed here for 3 days and loved it! The rooms were so clean which is my number one concern with hotels. In particular, one women who was part of the housekeeping staff, was named Martha. She was one of the most down to earth, sweet people we have come across! She made our stay so worth... More

Have stayed here several times over the past several years for business. Well located in Bartow Florida. Clean and well staffed. Front desk always professionally staffed. Free business breakfast typical for a Holiday Inn Express. Will stay again next time business calls me to Bartow.

I'm so glad we did!!! Our room was a suite & so nice. One of the staff told us it opened in '06 but... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while in town for a wedding. The room was very nice. It was very spacious. Our King room had a couch, chair and ottoman as well as a desk and chair. The bathroom was a little cramped for two people, but very functional. The breakfast bar was adequate at best. There was lots of... More

Fairly new hotel, set back a bit from the road so quieter than many roadside hotels. If you need to be in Bartow, this is as good as there is. Nothing special about it, but no flaws either. Rooms are clean and spacious and air conditioning worked well.

Stayed for one night on the top (4th) floor. The top floor generally is the quietest. However, that does not hold true when the management allows someone to work (pressure wash?) the roof before sunrise. Not a pleasant way to wake up in the morning. The walls are paper thin, to the point where you can hear your neighbors having... More

Dear act1013, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review regarding your recent stay. It is unfortunate that we were not able to completely meet your expectations on this occasion most especially with the soundproofing of the rooms and bed accommodations being sub par. We will forward your comments to management to consider for upgrades needed. We... More

It appears this hotel is either new or remodeled. The room was in great shape, quite elegant. Beds were excellent. Staff friendly, and best of all, the included breakfast was great. Selections from cereal, pastries and bagels, fruit, eggs and sausage, coffee and juice. Probably the best I have had. Location was 12-15 minutes from the Circle B Bar Reserve,... More
