Clean and very friendly staff! Would definitely stay again! I used the fitness room which was small but I was the only one so I didn't mind at all. It was clean and well taken care of. Continental breakfast had many options! My husband had the biscuits and gravy and said they were good! Very happy with our stay!

I recommend this hotel. Great location, comfortable bed, great breakfast and it has shuttle service. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only negative thing was the air conditioning unit. It was loud and woke me up several times.

This is one of at least 3 Holiday Inn Express hotels in the FLL airport area, so be careful if you are taking the free airport shuttle - this is the one on 17th Street with the phone number printed on their van ending in 2577. The hotel itself is undergoing a renovation and addition of a new wing. Not... More

The hotel staff was friendly but outside was a little troubling. The parking was limited due to ongoing contruction but it was okay experience for the most part. King beds were also limited, so I settled for a double bed. Breakfast was simple but had enough for the average continental sections.

Gloria Williams, the hotel manager and desk clerk Greg made my day! They rectified a last minute snafu--which was the fault of the booking site, not them--and went the extra mile to make our vacation great.

Stayed here after a Cruise. Lots of places to eat nearby. If you fancy a walk, then Los Olas is fairly close over the the Causeway. There's a Water Taxi stop a short walk away which is definitely worth a try. The staff were superb. Always friendly and willing to help. The new extension being built didn't really impact on...

This hotel, even though there was construction going on, was an ideal location for our precruise stay. It is an excellent value for the dollar. The hotel was clean, and the personnel could not have been nicer. Breakfast was more than adequate. In our case, we had flown into Miami, and rented a car at Budget. Another of the reasons... More

Once again, Holiday Inn Express came through with flying colors. The room and their facilities were fantastic. I was given a late check out, so I wouldn't have to sit at the airport to await my flight. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast was very good and filling. The staff was friendly and answered my questions regarding the surrounding... More
