“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Stayed 2 nights... absolutely no complaints. Rooms was top notch... staff was friendly. They have a "no pet" policy but they had no issue with my service K9's. Would happily stay there again.

If there is one thing that I found to be "negative" it was the entry to the hotel... you can't exit the hotel and go north... you have to go south and do a U turn. Same for going into the hotel... you can only enter going southbound on Hwy 441 (you can't enter the hotel if you are travelling northbound on 441... you have to go past it and do a U-Turn and go southbound to get into the hotel. It's a bit inconvenient... but I've seen worse.

My husband and I participated in the Big O Hike around Lake Okeechobee, Florida this year. We stayed at this hotel for seven nights. The staff at this hotel were excellent. The room was more than adequate to meet our needs for the week. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a place to stay in this area of Florida!

Stayed 3 nights using point breaks in early July. Front desk and dining staff were very very good and friendly. Hotel was good but not great had a very small pool. Breakfast was typical for Holiday Inn express so it was OK. Local restaurants were very good and priced reasonable

Our front desk staff and breakfast ladies are woderful people who love this feedback! I am pleased to hear we have provided friendly, caring service to our guests.
A helpful hint for the next time you are in town, there is a great group page on facebook called chobee dines that you can get a lot of inside information about the many resteraunts in Okeechobee.
So glad you enjoyed your stay,

Room clean and comfortable.
Staff helpful and we were offered coffee on arrival. Indeed coffee available in reception 24 hours a day as well as fresh fruit apples and oranges.
This was our second stay here. Last time used the pool, small but adequate for a quick swim.
Just a short drive to the lake which is good for walks and watching birdlife and fishing.
Breakfast OK and frequently replenished.
Definitely would stay here again.

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We are fortunate to be located so close to Lake Okeeechobee. It sounds like you might have visited there while you were in our city.
Our housekeeping staff work very hard to keep our rooms up to Holiday Inn Expres standards and we are very pleased to get good feedback on that.
I'm sorry you thought our pool was a little small. :-(
If you are ever in the BIG "O" again we hope you will come stay with us again.
Thank You

I stay in hotels about 250 days a year. The Sherry, Betty, and all the staff here make me feel so comfortable and at ease. The beds are great and the rooms are clean, fresh, and inviting. The breakfest they put out seven days a week is very, very good. Eggs, bacon, omletts, sasuage ,pancakes, cereals, fresh fruit, pastries, many yogurt flavors, several different juices and milk as well as some of the best coffee you will find in Okeechobee. The pool and sauna look relaxing and clean. I have actually worked out in the excercise room. The best place to stay in Okeechobee.
