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. When you are at this hotel the atmosphere is tropical as there is water surrounding and a couple of 'fun' restaurants within a five minute drive. If you... More

This hotel is what you expect as a guest, clean nice rooms, nice pool, location is excellent if you want a hotel close to Tampa Intl Airport. View from the hotel over Tampa Bay is great. They also have an airport shuttle (complementary) starting at 05.00 hrs. We had a very early flight, and wanted to return the rental car... More

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. The breakfast buffet is free for guests and has all the standard, self-serve, hot... More

Walls were paper thin, room was dirty and ac did not work well. The shower went from luke warm to scalding hot within a couple of seconds. I do not recommend staying here unless you have to.

Nice stay June 27th with quick access to the airport. Excellent front desk help with smooth check in and out. Solid HIE breakfast. The Bahama Breeze next door was an excellent venue for supper with good food and music. Very nice room. Very clean. Would have been nice to have been offered a room with a view of the bay.
