I enjoyed staying at this Express. It was very clean and modern. We didn't get to use the pool because of rain but it looked very nice and clean. I enjoyed watching the ducks on the pond close by. We used our Priority points to stay and the staff was just as nice and gracious as if we paid full price. The breakfast was good and hot.

SueZ,

Thanks for being a Rewards member and choosing us to spend your points with us. I am glad you got to see our little feathered friends, most have them have flown north for the summer, but we have a few stragglers that have decided to brave the heat. Next time you're down, you may get to see the newest generation!

We are staying here because it's convenient to our family. The free breakfast buffet is exceptional. Lots of variety. Fresh scrambled eggs and link and turkey sausage plus fresh biscuit gravy. Chobani yogurt. Several juice choices. Bagels, toast, biscuits. It's all here! Not fancy, but good.

Hoytandres,

Thanks for the great review, I am glad you liked breakfast, except instead of "not fancy", we say "unrefined". :)

Hope to see you next time you come back to Brandon!

The Brandon HIE is a bit difficult to find the first time but it's worth the trouble. As you come off the expressway, you'll want to turn left at the first light (just past the Red Lobster). The hotel is always clean and the staff are very pleasant. The breakfast is good and has a nice variety. Every room in the hotel has a microwave EXCEPT the dining room. That's unfortunate because there is no way to heat up the sausage, eggs, and muffins. The problem of course is stupid people keep putting the boiled eggs in a microwave causing them to explode~!! The dining room opens onto a patio by the pool and you can take breakfast out there if you like. Behind the hotel is a large stocked pond and if you have a rod in your car, you can do some catch & release fishing I wouldn't suggest keeping any of the fish for dinner though,. The HIE is an excellent hotel and we always stay there when we visit Brandon. It's convenient, clean, friendly,and has several specials.

Room Tip: We always like a ground-floor room because of the convenience to the car, the breakfast bar, and the...

Very nice hotel just like tripadvisor peeps had told us! Check in was wonderful, rooms weren't quite ready at 3:00pm but were very apologetic about and were ready within 30 minutes of checking in. Beds were very comfortable, I have a hard time with hotel beds and these were wonderful. Room was very clean and service in lobby and room was wonderful. Breakfast was a normal hotel breakfast, staff there were very attentive and restocked quickly because it was a jam packed hotel and lots of people. Judy at the check in desk was very nice and personable. Thank you for a great hotel for a wonderful graduation weekend!

We stayed there 10 days, visiting family in the area. The worst thing was that some of the folks on our floor were smoking for 4 of those days, and the front desk seemed powerless to control it. We complained numerous times, to no avail. Another problem was that we booked online and bought the "Discover Florida" package, which required at least a five-night stay (check), a deposit of one night's stay (check), and promised a refund of one night's stay upon checkout. The front desk and even the manager on duty when we checked out on Mon. April 21, 2014, professed to know nothing about any online offers. Then the manager, who just wanted us to go away, stated that the one night's refund was reflected in the low price of the room ($119). That was not our understanding of the "deal." Hotel staff told us they have no knowledge of online offers and are not going to honor ANY online offers. We had booked the hotel ahead for numerous days in June 2014 and have cancelled our reservation.

Room Tip: Find a different hotel or rent a condo in the area.

Dear Taos,

Thank you for sharing your experience you had at our hotel, I am sorry if a member of my staff was not able to take care of your issues during your stay. We work diligently to make sure all of our guests leave completely satisfied. We definitely take smoking in our rooms very seriously, the front desk may not have been fully aware of what was happening, but we were able to have the guests who were smoking removed from the hotel. I apologize if the smell in the hallway disturbed you. We were working as quickly as possible to expedite the situation.

As for the Discover Florida Rate, the discount is a 25% discount when booking at least 5 nights. It also requires the first night to be paid for up front. Again, I apologize if this was unclear, or if you felt like we were not able to clear explain how the discount worked. I can definitely understand your frustrations.

I would really like to discuss this matter more with you if possible, it is my goal to make sure you are completely satisfied. My phone number here at the hotel is 813 643 3800.

Thank you,

Edward Herrick-GM
