“Definitely Would Stay Here Again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Stayed two nights for business. Room was excellent bed very comfortable after working all day. Really enjoyed having a mini fridge and microwave in the room to store cold drinks and heating up food. Easy on and off of 275.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We recently stayed here two nights (Best quiet room #425) from Jacksonville to attend a Dragon Boat Festival. Upon Arrival we were greeted by "Adam" at the Front Desk who was very friendly and a pleasure.. Later that first night Front Desk "Josh" was super wonderful with assisting us with two issues. One was help printing off an item from the computer. Then later that evening we found out a Dragon Boat Teammate wanted to sleep in her car. So we ask Josh for a rollaway bed not only he ask if we wanted to upgrade to a suite (which we didn't) he didn't charge us for the rollaway. Big kudos to both Josh and Adam for their professionalism and sense of humor. The Cinnamon Buns are awesome and the lady who staff the Breakfast was superior. The rooms are clean, A/C very cold & we LOVE our HOT shower!! Next Month we have a Dragon Boat Race near Tampa Fairgrounds. Even if we have to travel an extra 30 mins to stay at this wonderful hotel we will :)

Room Tip: Room 425 top level end room very quiet :)

Room was ok, neighborhood not so hot.Very convienent to the highway. Includes a decent breakfast . Wimpy shower water pressure. No fan in bathroom. Overall not memorable. Paid $135 for a one night stay off season which seemed high to me.

I recently stayed here with my 5year old son. The room was clean and nice, service was friendly and the free breakfast was appreciated! It was also easy to find, right off the highway. We didn't get in the pool but it looked clean and pleasant.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is nice and clean, although there was an odd musty smell in our room and in the hallway leading up to our room. We took the complimentary shuttle from the hotel to Tropicana Field. You have to sign up at the front desk when you check in. The shuttle was timely and the driver was friendly. The room itself was nice, the bed was a little hard but not terrible. The shower also had good water pressure. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of options...eggs, biscuits, sausage gravy, as well as fruits, yogurt and pastries. We would probably stay at another hotel next time if we aren't going to a Rays game simply for distance to the beach. But this is definitely a good hotel right off of the interstate!

Having stayed in wonderful Holiday Inn in Perry, Florida and good ones in Pensacola and Pt. Ritchey, this hotel had a wonderful Mr. Josh on duty but what a disaster with the rooms! The first room had a poor working TV and a cracked window which you have to report so you won't charged for damages later. Presumably hotel staff did not know about. The next room smelled of stale smoke and had an even bigger crack. Had to move out and stay in La Quinta in the city and was just fine.
And remember all of these hotels, mentioned here have a very so-so breakfast obivously driven by the lowest common denominator - automation and no fruit (Perry hotel dide not even have bananas.) None of them are made on premises made any longer so I'm surprised to read all these breakfast raves.

Room Tip: Disregard all the "breakfast" reviews you read here. None of the hotels mentioned here hav...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn and Suites in St. Petersburg, Florida this past 4th Of July holiday weekend.
The room was clean and neat and the complimentary breakfast the next morning was very satisfying.
We happened to be in town to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play the Chicago White Sox. The beauty of staying at the Holiday Inn is that they had a free shuttle to and from the game. Makes it convenient and safer if you want to have a beer or two while watching the game. It also saves you the cost and hassle of parking at the stadium.
The area around the hotel is very safe and if the complimentary breakfast is not to your liking there is a Cracker Barrell next door.
I would definitely stay here again if I was in the neighborhood again.
