“I felt like I was being welcomed by family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I had to make an emergency trip for family stuff and usually stay at another hotel but they would not give a break on the price even though it was middle of the week and I was basically there for 8 hours. This hotel gave me a break and when I arrived around 10pm was greeted by a wonderful young woman named Hiroko. Not only was she wonderful and welcoming but I got awesome fresh baked cookies and a great nights sleep!

This was our second stay. One week on the ground floor, patio door onto small patio, then a gate that opens onto the pool area! I have not found another hotel like it!!!!!!
Was great for the dog, behind the hotel was a nice paved walk with ponds!
Felt very safe. About 15 min to beach, 5 min to Largo Mall! Shuttle to the Mall if you don't want to drive. Lots of restaurants in the area.
So if you have a pet and want to be close ask for a room that opens onto the pool!!!!!
Staff all very friendly and thank you to Jason for looking after the pool, great service!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: king size beds opening onto the pool!

The room was clean and comfortable. The lobby was inviting and the staff friendly and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and the seating area had more than adequate seating. The pool area was nice, but didn't use the pool or spa. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

We stayed here following a late evening arriving flight into PIE (PIE- aka the airport with the scales causing your bags to be overweight when they're not). Everything was fine, the place was clean, and the people working there were very helpful.

My friend booked this hotel for our stay the night before our cruise not realizing how far it was from the Tampa Airport and the Port of Tampa. It was a bit of a ride but in the end we are happy that we ended up here!

The service was amazing and I couldn't ask for friendlier customer service! We lost our breakfast buffet ticket and they replaced it without batting an eye and were always helpful with our questions.

The restaurant/bar on site is quite good and was actually surprising! We enjoyed a late lunch here and a couple glasses of wine later on. There was tons of TVs and I can see this easily becoming a popular hangout at night.

The hotel itself is well kept. It's very clean, spacious and not at ALL what I expected from a Holiday Inn Express! We were both quite surprised! The rooms are clean, nice and the beds comfortable. There honestly wasn't a thing I could complain about!

Go here for: accommodations if you have a rental car, being here without transportation was a bit of a bummer.

Don't go here for: can't think if why anyone shouldn't come here!

Dear C0reyann,
I would like to thank you for the wonderful comments but unfortunately you have responded to the wrong hotel. I believe the following comments are for the Full Service Holiday Inn a few miles away. I have contacted the General Manager Shawn Stan regarding your comments. We are looking for a way to move the following comments to his property. Thank you for choosing IHG as they are one of our sister properties.

The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I was immediately greeted as a Priority Club member. The room was clean and the breakfast buffet was kept fresh at all times. There was always fresh coffee. Our room overlooked the pool area and although there were many people out there in the evening "whooping and hollaring" we could not hear them in the room. I definitely recommend this hotel!

We booked this hotel for Phillies Spring Training vacation trip. Overall the hotel was average for a Holiday Inn Express. We arrived at 1:00 am Wednesday 3/6/13 and were given a ground floor room. The room was comfortable but showing its age.
The breakfast was OK. Deaf coffee containers were not always not avail. I was unaware the hotel did not have a fitness center. They have an agreement with LA fitness which is a couple of miles away. Overall our stay was adequate.
