Unfortunately I had a very uncomfortable stay. The room was a little warm when I checked in so I turned on the air conditioner and went to dinner. The air conditioner in Room 303 filled the room with the odor of wet microbiology. I was fortunate that the evening cooled and I was able to shut off the AC. But the odor lingered and the window can't be opened.
The young lady at the front desk was very apologetic but unfortunately didn't have another non-smoking room to offer. [ I didn't realize you can still smoke in a Florida hotel.]
I was booked at another Holiday Inn Express in a different city the next night, but switched hotels rather than risk two uncomfortable nights.
The hot breakfast was terrific! I love the sausage gravy. My stay ended on an up note. But I doubt I will return.
