My husband & I were lucky enough to stay at the best hotel ever. When we checked we were greeted by the two must friendliest people who made us feel as if we had been to this location many times. They told us that every night from 8-10 PM they have free ice cream. I thought that was the nicest... More

My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express off of I-75 & Bruce B. Downs this past summer. The hotel was clean, breakfast amazing with its variety, the staff warm and helpful. The General Manager, George, was especially helpful with tips on restaurants and Busch Gardens. Delightful stay!

We have stayed at this hotel twice while visiting friends in Northeast Tampa. Both visits the front desk staff have been very friendly, welcoming and happy. The morning breakfast is well stocked and the server was very helpful. The hotel is clean and convenient. If you're in the area it is a good choice.

The greeting I received when I arrived was top notch. Better than some 5 star resorts I have stayed at. Judy, who greeted me, was very proficient with the check in. It was clear she had studied up on what guests would be arriving and pulled my information up right away. She gave me tips about where to eat and... More

I would recommend this hotel to anybody. The room was great, the staff was very friendly, the pool area was lovely, and there were quite a few restraunts and within walking distance. It's not very far from Busch Gardens either which was nice.

A great, two-day trip to New Tampa. The staff are warm and friendly and interested in helping you get around the area. The complementary breakfast was outstanding. No complaints at all. My family lives near by and they recommend this place to visitors to the area.

the front desk of this hotel is the best I've ever seen. Very very recommendable hotel. Great building, great services. We had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed a lot the installations. From the breakfast, to the free coffee all day, the ice creams at night, everything was better than expected. Thanks!!
