“Nice Overnight Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Just passing through for place to sleep for one night. Pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. Very modern style lobby and breakfast room. Breakfast offered many choices hot or cold and was well stocked.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. Free internet worked well. Only note might be if you are a light sleeper and the planes arriving really buzz the hotel until about 10 pm, then start back up after 7 am.

There are a host of Restaurants nearby, including a new Wawa right by the expressway entrance.

Once again upon checkout the staff was so friendly and seemed to really care about their guests. Thanks for the personal touch, as it seems to have gotten lost in today's electronic society!

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

It works and the staff try hard to please. Wi-Fi works fine here. My work companion complained that she could here the airplanes taking off, but we are not far from the Tampa airport. I did not find this a problem.

The breakfast was outstanding. Staff were helpful and efficient. Everything was clean and modern. My only complaint was that the toilet in our room was running. Despite calling it in upon arrival, it was not fixed during the three day stay,.

I booked through Travelocity and was very nervous having not experienced the hotel before.
We were delighted and surprised to enter a modern and almost elegant lobby. A very helpful and kind front desk clerk who made sure our parking needs were accommodated(we were hauling a utility trailer).This was also one of our very few trips without our child and we were able to enjoy our adult time with a date and movie at the nearby restaurant and AMC 24. My only complaint would be that I had to "fix" the television which wouldn't turn on. The cable simply came loose in the back. Very minor. This hotel is a little pricey for the standard traveller, in my opinion. Even with the Travelocity discount. $89-$99 would have been more appropriately priced due to location near an airport and the traffic sounds which sometimes sounded like it was right under our window(impossible because the pool was there).
Overall, because of the front desk clerk and the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms, we were quite pleased with our stay!

Nice hotel. Only about 3 places to eat around there and very out of the way of anything of any significance. I would say in about 4-6 years it will have some attractions/things to do/ect around it, but this hotel is very much out of the way.
Now the hotel is very nice, and clean. Very basic and typical of the Holiday Inn Express, no thrill type of room/ hotel. Everyone was very nice and it seemed to have a veteran staff that was always willing to help. The beds were very average. The breakfast was good, not great but good and included, so that was nice.
Now if you happen to want hot water and it to come with water pressure..........then this is not the hotel for you. Took a shower at midnight and again in the morning and it was no different. Maybe equal to a sink pressure. It was a long time to rinse and if your like my wife and daughter and have some hair to rinse out, then oh boy it could be a while!
Over all a B grade hotel. If I had to stay there I would, but if I had other choices closer to things to do I would take it!
