“Much Better Than Expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Staff most accommodating; location excellent - just outside Inverness and easy access to US 19 if you want to make a short trip to Crystal River or Homosasa Springs. Good restaurants nearby. Wifi actually had a nice strong signal in the room and it was included.

My family stayed here on Christmas day 2011 and had a wonderful time. Room was clean, everything was up to date carpets were clean. This is a very nice hotel. Staff made us feel at home and as always they have a great breakfast in the morning.
I will stay here again on our next trip to Florida.

The hotel was clean, well kept and the staff was frendly & helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. The only negative was the "free breakfast"; not good, but only a minor detractor from my stay.

I am the treasurer of the British American Social Club of Citrus County. Our club meets on a regular monthly basis here and all our members are very pleased with the venue. The meeting room seats 28, with screen and presentation facilities.

The staff are very friendly and I can thoroughly recommend this hotel as a meeting venue.

It's about 5 miles out but it's still a great spot to stay. Looks brand new and everything was very nicely done. Quite too!

The night before we left for Lecanto, Tim gave us a call to remind us about our reservation. Wow! Never had such personalized service before. We had a bit of trouble locating this HIE. I used the directions from their web site which must have had a link missing from the directions. We were greeted by Harold and he got us into our room right away. The room had a flat screen TV, a microwave, a fridge and free wi-fi. There are extra outlets on the light on the desk for the laptop. The pillow cases identified the soft and firm pillows. The beds were comfy. Everything was clean - carpet looked new. The lighting was OK - all lights worked. They also have a heated pool but it was so windy and overcast we didn't even try to go in for a swim. There is also an exercise room here. There is plenty of parking, which is all in the front.
When we went down for breakfast there were newspapers on each table - nice touch. They had several kinds of juices, great coffee, tea and hot chocolate. They had a pancake machine but I didn't see anybody using it - they also had sausages, small flat eggs in a round shape, white gravy and fried potatoes. We enjoyed the fresh cinnamon cupcakes, which were heated up for us: they also had bagels, toast, pasties, biscuits, jams and butter. The cooler had regular and lite Danon Yogurt.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in FL. The people at the desk were very helpful and even upgraded our room. The rooms were very nice and spacious. Our grandson stayed with us and he loved the breakfast buffet, especially the pancake machine. There was so much to choose from. This is a great place to stay, clean, pretty, friendly, and great breakfast!
