The hotel stay was just what we needed to relax us for our cruise in the morning.

Sorry for the delay in responding. Thank you for the feedback regarding your stay. Am happy to say the pool issues have been cured and the pool is in fact sparkling. Please don't blame the dog owners..... We are not a pet hotel. It is our native ducks . But we have found a solution for that as well. Hope you will consider giving us another try. We continue to work toward perfection.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We spent two nights here and it was so-so.

Our room was very nice-- clean, updated, spacious and comfortable beds.
The breakfast was not as good as some Holiday Inn Express. It basically had the same thing both days except bacon was substituted for sausage one of them. It was clean, there was plenty of seating, and kept well stocked.
The parking lot was pretty full both nights yet it was quiet in our room.
The two things we were disappointed with:
Pets are allowed here and their owners seem to take about 10 steps out the front door and let the dog leave a pile on the sidewalk, drive, entrance, etc. You really have to watch where you walk and in 90 degree heat the smell is overwhelming. It was pretty gross to walk through every time you leave or enter the building. They need to have a dog walking area or send someone out to pick up after them. The various piles were never picked up while we were there.
The other bad thing we experienced was the pool. It was very murky and you could see the bottom was mostly covered in algae. Someone was in it vaccuuming the afternoon of our second day. It was not something you would want to get in the first 2 days. The morning we left it looked better but was by no means sparkling. The hot tub was also out of order. There needs to be a working pool in a Florida hotel in June.
If anyone stayed at Holiday Inn Express on Dale Mabry 7+ years ago, it is the property next door which is I think a Comfort Inn now. This hotel was being built while we stayed at the former HI Express location in 2004.
We have annual passes to Busch Gardens and will probably stay someplace else our next trip.

My family and I were visiting Tampa for a long weekend when an emergency came up and I found myself in the position of having to find a room for a couple nights near St. Joseph Hospital. This Holiday Inn Express was the closest so I took a chance and was I glad I did. The staff was so helpful in assisting with directions, helping with the courtesy shuttle to get me from the hotel to the hospital, and ending with helping us to print our boarding passes and getting the patient and his mom to the airport. The room was spacious, very quiet, and very clean. The free breakfast was very fresh each morning. It was only a mile from the hospital, within a couple miles from any type of shopping needed, and within a couple miles of the interstate which was a blessing for me as I had to drive home. When visiting Tampa again, I would definitely stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone who has to be near the hospital.

I try to mentain my IQ by staying at Holiday Inn express from time to time :) But jokes aside, it is a good hotel if in Tampa for a game at the stadium. I would not consider it for a family vacation. Room, smelled like humidity. Size of room is adequate. Bathroom can use updating, but not bad. Front desk very polite and responsive. Free Wifi, parking, and a nice free breakfast, makes this hotel a superb value. Shuttle avaliable to take you to game but not back.

I frequently stay at Holiday Inn Expresses. Not the nicest one ever but clean and comfortable. We stayed 2 nights for the Tim McGraw/Kenny Chesney concert and it was easy to walk.
Cold A/C and a nice big room. My only complaint is an old TV...time to upgrade to flat screens.

Stayed at the hotel for the Tim McGraw/Kenny Chensey concert at Raymond James Stadium. Great location as it was about a 4 block walk and safe. I had the king suite, nice room, bed okay (little firm for my liking), breakfast was good, eggs, bacon, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, fruit, muffins. I received $50 in vochers to Landers restauant next door as I paid $179 for the room (only one available when I booked). So glad I decided to use the vochers for lunch and cocktails before concert as the concert was over at 11pm and they close at 11pm, could have been $50 wasted as they expired the next day. I would stay here again for a concert or football game.
