“Great Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

I love this hotel! It is safe, clean, and welcoming. The staff is friendly and accomodating. On check-in, we were welcomed with a bottle of beer. They offered free ice cream nightly. The breakfasts were hot and plentiful. Our room and bathroom were spotless and refreshed daily -- didn't worry about running out of soap, towels, or paper products. A great hotel, all around. Thanks for being there!

We were treated exceptionally well by a very pleasant receptionist. The room was the way we like to see a room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2011

I was expecting to be "blown away" since this property was supposed to be the best HIX in Florida. Well that expectation was totally deflated. My room had mold in the closet, mold in the bathroom, and the A/C was marginal at best. My rating is a 7 out of 10. My party was not impressed.

We are all Platinum level members and none of us were greeted with the typical level of reception we have come to expect in other HI locations.

No recognition of our membership level at check-in, no offer for typical check-in perks like water, or snacks, or anything.

Property is very dfficult to find unless you are a regular. Over priced and low value. I'll find somewhere else to stay next time I am in the Wesley Chapel, FL area.

I suggest you consider Hampton or other property nearby.

This Holiday Inn was amazing, especially the staff. We stayed week of Christmas while visiting family in Tampa. What a pleasant surprise. Received a complimentary upgrade at checkin, which was well appreciated due to stay for a week. Room was spotless and mattress was only 4 weeks old. Upholstered fabrics looked brand new as well as paint on walls. Entire staff was so customer service oriented. By the time we left we felt like they were family. The big surprise was when we found a Christmas stocking on our door Christmas morning. Hotel lobby was decorated beautifully for holidays. Ice cream at 8 pm was a special treat.

Month before we stayed in a five-star hotel in Savannah. No comparison to this Holiday Inn Express in North Tampa.

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! From the moment we walked in the front doors the staff were superb! A special thank you to Lois who helped us tremendously with information and printing maps for us. We also were greeted with a cold beer upon arrival. The free breakfast was great, and more importantly the bedroom was spotless, as a matter of fact the whole hotel is spotless. The kids really appreciated the little Christmas gift from Lois, the staff really do go above and beyond. Don't hesitate to stay in this hotel, great value!

We were welcomed from the minute we walked in to the hotel lobby. Staff didn't even make a fuss that we were a little early for check in. We were even given complementary beer. My husband thought that was great. Room was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We were pleasantly surprised to have find out there is free internet. Area surrounding hotel includes lots of nice shopping, including an outside mall located a couple minutes away, as well as, there is a movie theater within walking distance. We were VERY happy with our stay.
