“Great value - does what is says on the tin, just better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

Don't go to this hotel expecting 5 star luxury, that is not what it is about. This is budget accomodation for both business travellers and those wishing to see some of the sights or attending local conventions. I have stayed in the hotel 3 times in 2011, each time for a relatovely long period. I have to say that the staff are outstanding, the hotel is clean, the free internet is a gift, and the pool is a fine way to end a day in humid Florida! I guarentee that there is nowhere you get more bang for your buck, and you are rewarded for your custom by staff who seem truly pleased you are there. I will put this way... I was in Tampa for a 10 day business trip in January. 5 days at the 5 star Regency Grand Hyatt, which was great. 5 Days at the Holiday Inn express which felt like I had come home early! I felt so welcome, that the lavish Hyatt was beaten into second pplace by the human touch at the Hiliday In Express. Big Like!

We celebrate a couples retreat and we were kind of nervous because it was the first time at the place. We did not know what to expect. As soon as we arrive the Conference rooms and the rooms for the couples were ready. The service was incredible. The rooms clean and comfortable. We also enjoy a free ice cream. We are very please with staying here, we really thing is the #1 in Tampa. We recommended it.

I have live in New Tampa for 9 years and this summer we, a family of 4, were relocated in a different state. During the days the moving van was packing our house, we stayed in the Holiday Inn Express located in New Tampa, because was close to our house. We are very happy to have chose it. Clean, new, great decoration, superb customer service. I really recommend this excellent hotel to families who are coming to Tampa to enjoy Bush Garden, Adventure Island (20 min. ) even Disney Parks (45 min.) because the quality of the area around the hotel. Good restaurants, grocery stores, Movie theater across the street, Starbucks, Moe's. Everything to walking distance. If I were a tourist coming to Tampa, I would somebody to give an advice like this. Do not miss it.

Room Tip: Come to this hotel. No brainer.

We, just book a stay with you this month and looking forward to it. We, live in Florida but, this place is like a quick get away for us. Motorcycle friendly too large parking area. We, always enjoy our stay and they handle any issue that may arise.....we ask to move because of some noise that wasn't under their control, and they accommodated us no questions ask. Thanks guys for a special place to hide out as a romantic get away!

Room Tip: Rooms are clean, no odor and things are kept updated.
