These owners have to realize that "ALL PET OWNERS ARE NOT SMOKERS". I booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express thru Hotels.com on my iPhone. I specifically looked for their policies regarding pet and the only item listed was a $25 pet fee. We were on our way back home after sitting in the hospital for 8 days with... More

I apologize for the troubles that our pet policy caused you. I am also very sorry that the third party you booked through did not make you aware of our pet policy during the booking process. I am glad that you left feedback so that we can bring this situation to their attention and prevent this from happening again. If... More

We were on our way to Orlando, It was late and we stopped in without having a reservation. The clerk was very nice, gave us a room cheaper than what I had found online. Although the room was spacious and clean, we were welcomed by a large roach. After a small battle, we were able to get a good nights... More

This is our "go-to" hotel when we are in town for University of Florida football games. Because it was a game weekend, the prices are higher than a typical Holiday Inn Express. I also stayed here when there was not a game and the prices were much cheaper. The rooms are basic but very clean and a simple breakfast is... More

The hotel wasn't bad. The bed was pretty firm which I don't necessarily care for. The elevators were not located in a convenient spot for us but the stairs were. The staff was extremely nice (although, I only spoke with them during check in/check out) and the room was clean. All in all, it met my standards for the amount... More

We were scheduled to stay for 4 nights, but it was not possible. Housekeeping half-cleaned the room one day and did not leave enough towels the next. Front desk said this was due to their high occupancy. We found roaches in our room the 3rd night and had to leave.

We apologize for the troubles that you commented on. We have a contract for weekly professional pest control that we have found to be very successful in preventing any problems. I will address the towel situation with the housekeeping staff to try and ensure that all future guests that need extra towels will have them in a timely manner. We... More

We stopped at this hotel after a tiring day of loading a Uhaul and helping our son move from college to his new job in South Florida. We had hoped to make the trip in one day, but packing and loading always takes longer than expected! We were grateful for a comfortable hotel, easy to get to off the interstate... More

Stayed 1 night on the way to Disney. It was a great stay. Super clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. Beds were so comfortable, we slept like babies. Contemporary hot breakfast was great. Includes pancakes, eggs, yogurt, biscuits, fruit, etc.

Everything about our 3-night stay at this facility was excellent. The front desk staff was quite helpful when we asked for recommendations for various things. Their business center had everything we needed to complete a legal transaction. The room was large and very clean. Breakfasts offered a variety of choices so everyone had something they liked.
