I've written many hotel reviews and I can honestly say this is the best bed I've ever slept in. The bed is amazing. Completely amazing, slept sound all night and comfortable. The Jacuzzi was really big and perfect with jet pressure and placement. The breakfast was really great as well, good variety and coffee, hot, well cooked and as good... More

This is the first time I have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express and it was a pleasant stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I stayed in two different rooms. The first room was a basic two bed suite. It was comfortable and contained the basic amenities. I decided to extend my... More

Stayed briefly on spring break while heading to Busch Gardens and the NCAA tournament. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hot breakfast was great in the morning and even free ice cream at night ! Will visit again for sure !

I chose this hotel based on the #1 ranking and it absolutely lived up to that in every way. No need to look any further for a Tampa hotel, this hotel is outstanding. The staff including the manager, George were also very welcoming, makning our stay that much better!

I was extremely impressed with every aspect, which I can attribute to a friendly and professional staff. Judy at the front desk was stellar. She made us feel we were guests in her own home with her sincerity. I can not recall a better free breakfast due to the quality, selection and, once again, the great staff. The woman and... More

WOW! This place has it all including customer service excellence that is rarely found. The place is clean! Pool is clean, rooms are clean, breakfast is nice variety and great breakfast room. They are very helpful with directions and recommendations of the area. But best of all I forgot my family picture of us at Busch Gardens feeding the giraffe... More

After finding this jewel through TripAdvisor I'm glad to write a review of our stay. The front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast every morning was a big plus too! We were greeted one morning by George during breakfast and he was a down to earth manager. Judy and Helle (I hope I spelled her name right)... More

We only spent one night here before leaving on a cruise. The hotel is mostly known for being close to Busch Gardens and a Hard Rock Casino. Well it's a clean place with a nice small pool with plenty of chain restaurants nearby. Many awards over the last few years from IHG.

Stayed here on business for four nights in March 2015. Paid $104 per night. Wifi connection was free with solid uptime and good speed. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. First room they gave me was next to a loud group and they moved me without any problem. Room was clean and comfortable. I needed to commute downtown every... More

I'm someone who has never written a review before on TripAdvisor, but since this site was one of the reason I decided to stay here I decided it was only fitting to pay it forward! I was impressed before I ever even got here! About a month before I reserved my room I mentioned to George who is the General... More
