“A great place to stay in Cape Coral”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We spent 6 days in Cape Coral, Florida. 3 days for a conference and 3 days vacation. The Holiday Inn Express was only 2 1/2 blocks from our venue, so picked it. I was glad I did.
The room was nice. It was set up for handicap accessible so all of the hangers, coat racks, etc. were only 4 feet off the floor. It made it a little difficult to store our things.
The room was clean except for the toilet. The toilet had not been wiped down and there was dried urine on the rim when we arrived. It was easily remedied and the rest of our stay was fine.
The complimentary breakfast was great. So much more than you would normally get a a hotel. There were eggs, sausage, sausage gravy, or bacon (depending on the day), biscuits, made-to-order pancakes, fresh fruit, bagels, and more! The nice thing was that it is served 6-10am. For the first few days, before the conference, we slept in and still had hot, fresh breakfast waiting for us. Once the conference started and I had to be up early, the breakfast was ready for me at 6!
The ladies who tended the breakfast buffet were attentive and very friendly. They had great suggestions for fun things to do in town and kept the buffet and dining tables and chairs clean.
I would definitely stay there again if in the Cape Coral or Ft. Myers area. It was affordable and conveniently located.

We stayed here two nights in Dec before we could check into our condo for the month of January. Very, very friendly staff...Very clean rooms...we travel with our little Yorkie-Poo, and even the pet-friendly rooms were very clean...Great breakfast too!

I generally have become brand loyal to Holiday Inn because they typically have decent, clean, and comfortable rooms for a reasonable price. Customer service was good, but I was completely turned off by the hair of a previous guest in the bathroom. (Given my hair is curly, the more than a few strands of straight hair was not mine.). There is definitely room for improvement there.

After some really bad experiences at the nearby Casa Loma motel, this place seemed like a palace! Staff was attentive & polite. Free breakfast good enough. Room was very good -- restful here. We visit Cape Coral often to see family-- this will be our go to place as we weigh price against value.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor on side away from Cape Coral Parkway.

Stayed here on business. Rooms were clean, Staff is nice and breakfast was good. If you've seen the familiar "waffle makers" in some establishments, well...this is the first time I've seen a pancake maker! Just select the number of pancakes you want, push the button and you have pancakes. Amazing! I would recommend this hotel to any business traveler or family. Lots to explore downtown.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the "pancake" maker for breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay here, the room was great, the beds were great, had a fridge in the room, swimming pool was clean and nice, decent hot breakfast with a nice lady working it, plus the front desk Ladies were super. If you are looking for a hotel in the Cape with easy access to Sanibel / Fort Myers this is it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side away from the street are probably quieter. We were in like 110 and it was gr...
