“Very nice hotel! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We loved the location and the hotel. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was really good. I think that they should have at least one housekeeper to bring towels in the evening versus the front desk saying come get them, other than that it was a really good stay.

There are few words needed to describe the Holiday Inn Express, I-75 Tampa, Fl. Clean, quiet, comfortable, great location and SUPER staff. This equals a GREAT STAY. The breakfast has the average items you would find in any Express hotel, good but not super.

Would definitely stay again! This hotel is in a great location, close to restaurants and even a movie theater. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. We loved the free ice cream each night! It was a short drive to Bush Gardens. A great stay. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We enjoyed our stay here. very easy drive to Busch Gardens & Adventure Island. We stayed in the Presidential Suite as it has 2 bedrooms & 3 TV's, which we need with a 5 yr old boy & 11 yr old girl. The place was always clean with a nice large living room for space to stretch out. Our only problem is we compared it to the Staybridge Suites we stayed in Orlando that has a larger fridge & a dining table for 4 (here is small 2 seater). We like to eat in as it is easier with the kids so the larger table would be better suited to a 2 bedroom. The folks at the front desk we very efficient & friendly. We would definitely return if we stay in the area again.

Loved this place and would stay again if in Tampa.

If I could stay here and sleep a vacation away, I would. The bed was just so fantastic.

My room, although on the smaller side, was clean and daily maintenance staff did a great job of keeping it that way. A drawback in the area at the time of my stay was construction on the roads and highway nearby. The activity caused a great delay in travel.

The hotel is located in what appears to be a safe area that also has many restaurants and lots of shopping.

Key Note: If you're visiting the Clearwater area, this hotel is approximately a one hour drive in distance (highway construction/repair/and traffic congestion appear to be a factor).

so when you get one amazing clerk, that's great, you get two, awesome -- but when after two weeks you have dealt with 5 people and each person is friendly, upbeat, so helpful and just really seems to give a damn about you -- you know that there is incredible leadership behind this hotel....its ingrained in the culture, so my hat off to you whoever runs this place........the only reason its not a 5 - noisy rooms, or more likely noisy neighbors, and the breakfast was not that great to me (though I am a picky health food nut , to most its probably great.....but as I don't do gluten, or sugary things -- and avoid processed food it was limiting, but with a fridge in the room you just get your own

Room Tip: corner room top floor.
