This was our second time staying at this property prior to a cruise. We spent the night of Jan 9, 2015. We love this hotel. It is extremely clean and the staff welcoming. We also enjoy having dinner at the Bahama Breeze that is within walking distance. It sits right behind the hotel! The only thing we disliked was the... More

We stayed for only one night as we flew into Tampa spent the night due to a late arrival and continued onto Gainesville for an athletic event the next day. We arrived very very late . Our room was very clean, beds quite comfortable, air conditioner was NOT noisy. Breakfast options were nice from scrambled eggs, sausage, standard cereal and... More

To start, the hotel rooms were great. The place looks new. It's clean, comfortable, with reasonable space. The shower / bath was good. The WiFi worked very well. There were lots of outlets in the room as well as a microwave, fridge, and a good TV with lots of choices. The AC worked very well. The breakfast was outstanding. Like... More

While searching for a hotel during a long weekend family getaway to Tampa. Checking Tripadvisor as we always do, up popped up the Bruce B. Downs Holiday Inn.(A Holiday Inn is #1 rated hotel in Tampa, yeah right?) Well, upon driving up to the property I noticed it is nicely tucked away for being so close/convenient to I-75/shopping/dining and not... More

We generally always stay at either a Hampton or HI Express for casual travel. We were in Tampa for the RV show and this location had availability close to the fairgrounds. Great staff, easy access, comfortable rooms with good housekeeping. The breakfast was excellent with a few extra items not normally found at a HI Express. They served Klondike ice... More

I was visiting family that live just around the corner so I could walk to their apartment. There are also a choice of places to eat within walking distance. It is tucked off the main road in some trees so there isn't a lot of road noise. The hotel was very clean and the staff very nice. The one thing... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for staying with us and recommending our hotel! For clarification and the benefit of other travelers, the toll you mention was actually $3.00 vs. $300, but I certainly regret the errant information given.

I was in this hotel for a business trip, bringing my family also. The hotel is a classic Holiday Inn Express, with all necessary facilities, including a small but comfortable outdoor pool. The room was very clean, not very spacious, but sufficient for our needs. Breakfast a bit "poor". The service really excellent, the manager was really helpful and very... More

Stayed one night prior to moving our daughter from Tampa to Rochester NY. We were exhausted after loading the moving truck and cleaning the apartment and could not have been happier to experience an outstanding shower (water pressure not an issue, plenty of hot water, very plush towels, all of which can be an issue in some hotels). The bed... More

For a HIE, this place was perfect. The room we got was great. The front desk recognized us as a platinum member. The grounds of the hotel were really nice. Definitely a place worth stopping if you're in the Tampa area. It's located out a ways from downtown, but there is enough restaurants and shopping around to keep you busy.

I75 in Florida can be super congested on our way to southern Florida. This Tampa hotel is a great stop off. Near I75 but far enough away so it is quiet and there are plenty of restaurants within a 5 minute walk or drive to them since they have plenty of parking. Staff very friendly and hot and cold breakfast... More
