“Bridal Party for a Wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I was in the bridal party for a wedding and we all got ready in the room of this hotel. It was very clean and the staff was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this place to any family or friends who would be in town.

Stayed for 2 nights in April 2012. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms have a balcony which was wonderful to sit out at night. Everything was very clean. The breakfast was GREAT! Had bisquits and gravy one day, was disappointed that they didn't have it the next though. Even if you go for one day, you Have to go to the pool. The deep end is 6 foot 6 inches deep. It is not only Huge, there are plenty of lounge chairs for sunning and the decor made me feel like I was on an island somewhere. It is on a busy street, so you do hear the traffic but it honestly didn't matter because the pool is So Nice! I highly recommend this hotel.

Pluses: Clean, friendly staff, nice breakfast, close to ammenities. Minuses: door lock broken, (had to change rooms), noisy in-wall air conditioner clicked on ALL night long, toilet spontaneously flushed (WHOOSH!) ALL night long, live band at the bar across the parking lot too loud, hair dryer shorted out after 3 minutes (I have thick long hair), pillows too small and soft. Overall a miserable night\.

Room Tip: try the hampton inn down the street

On our way to Miami airport and needed a stopover, this was fine. Room was good size and it was nice to have a balcony. We were going to use the pool but it was in shade so didn't bother but it looked ok. A couple of places close-by to eat without having to drive. Free breakfast was good.

I recently booked a room here for 3 nights thru Hotels.com due to a funeral. Upon arrival they said they didnt have a reservation for me! I had my confirmation number, called in to say I would be late arrival and the room was paid for! It was during spring break so my guess is they overbooked! I finally found a room around 12:00 a.m. and it was a motel that no one would want to stay at! Thanks Holiday Inn Express for making a difficult situation worse!!!!!

This Holiday Inn Express is a bit "tired" in appearance and rooms could use refurbishing. However, considering the price of other hotels in the area I was more than satisfied with my stay. When I checked in my room was not satisfactory--reeked of smoke and I had requested a non-smoking room. Judi at the check-in desk was so friendly and accomodating. In no time I had been switched to a non-smoking room. The hotel has a nice outside pool and within walking distance to local restaurants.
