“GREAT TIME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We recently stayed for one night for a birthday party for my 13 year old daughter. 4 girls and 2 moms made a night of it in one of the luxurious 2 room suites. We had a blast and my daughter was so excited!! Thanks to Nicole and the entire staff for making this special time EXTRA special. The hotel is so nice. The staff super polite and the breakfast, well, that pancake machine will amaze you for hours. HIGHLY recommend this hotel!!

Thank you so much for making our hotel your site of choice for your overnight birthday party. It sounds like it was a lot of fun for everyone! I do love the pancake machine also, and sometimes wish I had one for home to take all of that hard work out morning breakfast. I will share your thoughts with the staff about the fantastic job they did, and hope you can make the birthday an annual event at our hotel!!!

Coming from Germany, we visited Fort Myers in the mid of January 2013 and really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The price is okay, the location is good, but the friendly staff is what really impressed us. Thank you very much to our receptionist Mia, who was of great help throughout our stay and supported us wherever she could.

This hotel and staff are awesome! We had to move rooms and were unable to be there during the day so the manager, Dawn, moved our personal belongings for us with such care and neatness! The staff are all smiling and friendly and acknowledge you. Thanks to Mia for home baked chocolate chip cookies! The best stay at Holiday Inn Express ever! Stay here, it's the best!

Room Tip: All are good. No freeway traffic close by.

We stayed here overnight on a Saturday in January. The front desk said they were sold out, so we were glad we made a reservation. The room wasn't ready for checkin at 4, even though checkout time was 3. We had reserved a king, but ended up with a double queen. The mattresses were firm. The property is immaculate. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were able to put our bags in a storage room, before we went off to an Irish festival. The hotel is very quiet. It's next to an exit for I-75, but it's far enough away from the interstate that there isn't any road noise in the rooms. The hotel is a short drive, almost a straight shot directly to downtown Ft. Myers and the park where the festival was held. We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Expresses over the years. This is one of the best. Breakfast has improved over the years. The coffee was strong, the way we like it. They had scrambled eggs, ham, and a biscuit for breakfast, all free with the room. The wait staff kept the buffet full. We will stay here again, the next time we are in the area.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our facility. Our hotel is the perfect setting to come home to after visiting the beaches, or strolling around our newly improved downtown area. It has become home to many area activities including art test. We always love hearing the customer feedback and I will make sure the staff knows about your experience. We hope to have you return to our great city soon. Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to report about your experience at our hotel. I am glad you consider our location convenient and were impressed with the facility. We have great meeting space, and also many of our rooms are great for small more intimate functions if it is for interviewing, small informal meetings, or even small family setups. I will pass on to all of the staff your review, and hope you get the chance to stay overnight and have breakfast with us again soon! Thank you for your patronage.

I have made this hotel my one and only when travelling to the Fort Myers area. I am always greeted by a friendly staff who is always willing to give a hand with directions, dining options, or any other odd request I seem to come up with. The rooms are well maintained and quiet. Love the flat screen TVs. I get rapid check out, but still like to say farewell to the front desk on my way out because I always receive a smile and a good morning. Oh...and the breakfast is nice. I get a hard-boiled egg when I'm in a rush or biscuits & gravy when I have time to linger. I can't say enough about this hotel and it's staff.

I've been blessed to speak and present at a variety of venues over the years and Nicole, from Holiday Inn Express & Suites was by far the easiest person to work with. She and her amazing staff even thought of things I missed, like placing the registration table. They made my life so easy, it possible for our event to shine brightly. And did I mention who friendly everyone was? AMAZING! I am so grateful!

I had never really considered the Holiday Inn Express and Suites for events as a first choice, but it is my first choice now! Thank you Nicole, Daniel and team!

Nicole is most definitely a valuable key player in our team! She is a great meeting organizer and does a phenomenal job ensuring set up and all bookings go smoothly. She is also a great resource for planning outings, meals, and other activities. She truly goes the extra mile to accommodate all of our guests meeting and travel needs. I will pass the information along to her that you were so happy. Thank you for your patronage.
