We spent the last two nights here in a room that was full of roaches. We had to take everything out of our suitcase before putting it in our car and found three trying to hitch a ride. This was the most awful experience I have ever had at a holiday inn express facility. I told the front desk and... More

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.

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!
