This is our 3rd year in a row staying in the HIE Cape Coral while visiting family( 7/21-7/30/14). Year after year we see the same employees that remember us and welcome us like family. This year a lot of the same faces but also a couple of new faces. The hotel is always well maintained. Basic HI rooms, comfortable beds/pillows.... More

We stayed five nights in this hotel. First, the good. Breakfast was wonderful. It is a full breakfast and things are hot and fresh. They also had subtle variations one what was served each day so that was cool. The room was clean and housekeeping did a good job on daily upkeep. Although the carpets and decorations seemed a little... More

My husband and I stayed at this HIE while waiting for our loan to be ready to close so we could move into our new home. The hotel is on the main street of downtown Cape Coral and is close to some good restaurants. There is a pool, which we did not take advantage of but it looked nice. The... More

We waited too long in order to visit with relatives who were vacationing on Captiva to book a hotel room for ourselves. Note to self - book room a year early! Anyway, Holiday Inn Express provides a known product - relatively close to the Ft. Myers beach areas and the Sanibel toll road to the island. Previous review mentions of... More

Looks good from the outside but this hotel is old and would require some touch ups at least to make it at par with what we normally expect from a HIE. Moreover, I understand that such an hotel cannot offer high speed internet but there is low and very low. I had to live with the "very low" speed when... More

In the process of visiting Cape Coral several times I discovered the Holiday Inn Express to be the best choice for me and my family. Great front desk service and a better than average complimentary breakfast. The rooms are clean and fully functioning. Its within easy walking distance to a variety of great restaurants and live music venues. It gives... More

Clean Hotel, good breakfast included. Area shuts down early, including restaurants and bars. Don't plan to be out after 10 PM. Awkward to get to unless you are staying in Cape Coral. Pool area was nice. Ample Parking

Great rooms and good location. Uneven number rooms can be very noisy as they are facing a busy street. I loved the breakfast with cerials, fruit, yoghurt, juice and hot drinks, muffins. All fresh. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. Book on Hotwire and got a very nice price.

I spent a week here on business in March 2014. The hotel staff were excellent, especially Katherine & Patty. The staff at the breakfast buffet worked extremely hard keeping the buffet fully stocked. The room was very comfortable and clean.
