We truly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The room was exceptionally clean and the staff were very helpful. Only negatives were uncontrollable, our room faced the pool which on the weekend was extremely noisy until the 10PM closing, if we stay again we will request a room facing the rear. There were a large number of families... More

Went to siesta key for the weekend. All the hotels on the island were sold out, but this holiday inn express was only 10 mins from the beach. The whole building, rooms included looked recently remodeled. It was bright and contemporary / clean and comfy. It's still a no-frills kinda place, with a really small pool, ice machine only on...

We always stay at HIExpress and have had great experiences. This location was convenient for our departure from Punta Gorda Airport. We booked a suite and upon arrival were told they had only two and the one on the second floor was taken. The only other suite was located right behind a small lounge area on the main floor and...

We stayed here to attend a nearby sporting event. It was convenient that it was so close to I-75. Room was clean and wifi was strong. Breakfast was okay. There were many people there when we stayed and I believe the pancake maker was out of order. The front desk was always attentive to whatever our needs were. The grounds... More

I have stayed at this hotel for several weekends in a row due to work obligations. Although full each time I stay, the noise level is excellent. It is not a hotel that you hear the person in the next room snoring, or flushing their toilet. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is wonderful and friendly, and I... More

An easy find from I-75 - very clean nice rooms, comfortable beds, excellent staff, nice breakfast - perfect for an end of the day, get off the road stay. Yet nice enough for out-of-towners staying for a while. This could be our "go to" when we're in town.

Conveniently close to I-75. 20 min dribe from downtown. Clean. Excelent beds. Somewhat rudimentary breakfast seen with Scandinavian eyes - by all means OK. No bar or restaurant - and nearby establishments are limited. You have to drive downtown to find cosy places.
