“Underrated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We started our 18 night holiday in The Holiday Inn Express Rocky Point and it was our best overall stay. The desk and breakfast staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms large and clean, the breakfast varied and well stocked, the make your own pancake machine was great, the wi fi the best of all of our hotels and whiles talk room over looking the water would have been nice the room we had at the front was quiet. Location is good for the airport and for getting around the area.

Room Tip: Top floor at the front is very quiet

I normally really enjoy Holiday Inn Express hotels. Never had a bad experience since the brand reinvented itself as a high end, moderately priced chain. This location, however, is in dire need of help

Room Tip: Ask if their renovation is complete

Located in a nice location. Pleasant helpful staff. Lovely clean large room. Really good breakfast with great variety. Would really recommend this hotel. Stayed for five nights and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Overlooking the bay would be nice.

We have used Rocky Point Holiday Inn for our pre-cruise hotel twice already and have found it to be an excellent spot for access to everything around Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. Staff was friendly and courteous.

We stayed here overnight on the front and back of our 7-day NCL cruise, and highly recommend this hotel for anyone doing the same. Took the shuttle from the airport, then to and from the cruise terminal; it was fast and prompt each time. The hot breakfast was very good; it had a good choice of items, and provides a good start to a long day of travelling. The rooms are showing their age, but they were well stocked, comfortable beds, and quiet. The kids enjoyed a quick swim in the pool, which was fairly cool, but considering we came from -30 that morning, was quite alright with them.

The hotel is located in a resort-like area with lots of cool restaurants for adults within walking distance. Bahama Breeze has a really nice atmosphere as well as Logan's Beach and Whiskey Joe's (which are all just a short walk away). Ben T. Davis Beach is a nice small private beach area that is awesome for the whole family (and also within walking distance of the hotel). Raymond James Stadium, Ybor City and The Florida Aquarium were short rides away. The staff members were very nice, friendly and attentive. Our room was spacious and well kept. The FREE but tasty full breakfast was a great money saving bonus!

We arrived two days early for our cruise and first night was a little noisy due to a National Cheerleading convention in town. Shower pressure low but Hotel staff super nice and apologetic about our complaints and second night no noise and good shower. Good variety for the free breakfast. Older hotel but pool was lovely and right on one of the intercoastal. We had shuttle pick us up from airport to hotel as well as take us to and from cruise ship. On return we spent entire day at hotel as flight was in evening but they let us use pool and computer in lobby to print our boarding pass. Price was also very reasonable.
