It's pretty much middle of the road. The breakfast bar wasn't anything great. In fact, I went next door to McD's. The night shift manager was rally nice. I had my 2 dogs with me for $20/dog/night......

We were in town to see a concert at the Dixie Roadhouse just down the block. Checked into the HIE. Glad I did. Some of the other hotels in town looked like old school motels. This hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic, but acceptable. And, upon checkout, we came to learn that the artist we came to see... More

Hotel is very clean and comfortable. Most staff is very helpful and friendly. Pool area is nice and never closes. It's just so noisy! One side of hotel faces busy street with traffic noise and other side faces a few restaurants/bars. One place plays live music until 9 or 10pm. Not a great place for business travel.

Upon arrival, my wife and I were greeted with less than enthusiasm. The rooms were spacious and the location is quiet although smack in the middle of Cape Coral. We were disappointed to find the bathroom less than clean -- there was hair in the sink and the bath but the rest of the room was very clean and the... More

I've stayed at numerous Holiday Inn Express hotels around the country. There is a reason why I continue to use them. It is always good and predictable while on the road. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This hotel was located on a main street in Cape Coral. The hotel was beautiful however the noise of street traffic until late in the night was unpleasant. Next time I would ask for a room overlooking the parking lot - late arrivals don't get too many choices. The overall location allowed us to travel the area quite easily however... More

Check in was smooth and friendly. The bed was clean and very comfortable but the carpet was filthy! I mean filthy. The room was spacious and well laid out but there was hair on the bathroom floor and the Keurig coffee maker didn't work. The complimentary breakfast was perfect.
