We got to the hotel in the evening and the manager was very nice. The location was great, as it had a great view of the bay. The manager recommended the Bahama Breeze to eat at and was about 100 yards away. It was great experience, the food was great and service too. The motel was centrally located for us... More

Excellent Location, Great Staff, Nice Place. We have to say that this was a great location: close to the airport (about 2 miles away), Close to the International Mall, sits on the water, and close to Clearwater beach. We checked in a bit early and though our rooms were not ready, the staff worked to make rooms available to us.... More

Hotel was just "okay". It was close to the airport and the free breakfast were all good. The locking mechanism on the door needs fixing (room #402), and we did not get our wake-up call....not cool, especially for an early morning flight!

Paper thin walls. They couldn't find my reservation so I had a room overlooking a parking lot. When I asked if they had another room they said they were booked - I have no idea how. The door to room had a gap on the bottom and the side. Sketchy at best. I give the bed 1-star. Booked by company... More

The front desk crew greets guests with the biggest smiles and makes every effort to help one feel comfortable and welcome. Our request for a lower floor overlooking the water was honored.

Like most Holiday Inn Express hotels, it's a basic but functional hotel. No luxuries, but it has everything you need for a night or two. A step up from the cheaper hotel chains, but still a good value. Decent-sized, clean, comfortable room. Efficient check-in & check-out.
