“Great location and very good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to Florida's gulf coast. Reception on arrival was first class and room on 4th floor overlooking the bay was spacious and well maintained. Buffet breakfast was good with an excellent selection.

Great location for exploring Tampa and surrounding area. Had a lively couple of nights next door at Bahama Breeze.

Only criticism, there was no safe in the bedroom, but we used free facility at reception.

Would stay again.

Room Tip: 4th floor bayside

I wanted to be close to airport and have a good free breakfast. I was happy with both. We used a lot to towels and the staff always provided more. We used the microwave and fridge in the room.
The afternoon receptionist was very nice. I checked out at 4:30am. And that girl did not greet me or thank me for staying 5 nights. I thought that was rude. Other than that it was a nice stay and good location to move around from.

If you like a nice view, I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express if you are able to get a room on the water (not the parking lot) side of the hotel at a competitive price. Also double check to be sure your room has a nice view (a few are obstructed). The window is small, but you get a nice view of the bay with the highway crossing in the distance. The rooms meet HI Express standards as does the breakfast -- with a pancake making machine (though at times the bananas are terrible and the muffins etc are from a commercial supplier, not from a local bakery ). You are just a short distance from the airport. (If you want to save money on a rental car, have the hotel pick you up at the airport, then have the rental company pick you up at the hotel.) You are about a half hour from Clearwater beach... and much of the drive is over a causeway which is very beautiful.

Room Tip: You want a room on the bay side (not the parking lot side) if you want a nice view. Window is small...

My wife and I often stay in the Tampa area and this time stayed at the holiday inn express rocky point what a fantastic location great views and so convenient for beaches, restaurants,shopping and airport without being in the middle of Tampa

The staff were so efficient and friendly and the hotel was spotlessly clean

We will certainly stay again rather than the higher priced branded hotels

We chose this hotel because it was close to The Laser Spine Institute where my husband was slated for surgery. It is perfectly located with awesome restaurant options at our finger tips.
The hotel is in the process of renovation and our room happened to be on the 'to do' list.
Because of my husband's back issues, the beds in our room were insufficient. Not only did the staff honor our request to change out the mattresses, they actually built frames for them and did all of this with a smile. We are SO impressed and would recommend it as an option. The bay view is beautiful, the pool is clean and quiet, the staff is courteous, professional and efficient.

Room Tip: Bring a cooler..no mini fridges in the rooms

I know that this place is under renovation and it is a good thing. The property is showing its age and needs the work. We stayed on IHG rewards and the first room we were given was down the hall on the 1st floor where we had to navigate laundry carts and other service equipment. The room was dark and dingy and then we found used soap in the shower and the toilet would not flush (no water in the tank). Got moved to another room where everything worked but it was still outdated.

Stayed here because the location was close to TPA and also seemed interesting as it is on the water. View of the Hampton Inn sign and parking lot is all we got.

Two positives are: the Bahama Breeze Restaurant is right next door and the van driver was very friendly.

Basic Holiday Inn Express. I stayed here with my bf. My parents stayed here as well. They said their shower curtain was moldy and there were peanuts in a corner of the room. That issue was resolved promtly by front desk. Front desk employees were friendly. Our room was nice and clean. Pool was open but weather wasnt great so we didnt use it. Good location if youre looking to stay close to airport. Nice view of bay and areas to stroll around across the street. We were down for spring training which was about a 15 min drive over the causeway. Cheaper than staying at the hotels near the stadium and better views.
