“Even number rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Great rooms and good location. Uneven number rooms can be very noisy as they are facing a busy street. I loved the breakfast with cerials, fruit, yoghurt, juice and hot drinks, muffins. All fresh. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. Book on Hotwire and got a very nice price.

Stayed May 2014, traveled solo

This was a reward night stay. I asked for a quiet room and they gave me one on the highway side. other side is parking lot and a noisy bar/nightclub with outdoor speakers. highway side was NOT quiet, and recessed patio design amplifies the traffic noise. Dont stay here if you want a good nights sleep. I complained to several levels within the HI system and they reluctantly returned only HALF my reward points.Looks like a different hotel chain will be my first choice in the future.

Dear passinggas,
We regret that you were not able to enjoy your stay. Unfortunately being in downtown Cape Coral it can tend to get a bit noisy. We hope next time you come to the Cape Coral area you will be willing to give the Holiday Inn Express Cape Coral another try!

I spent a week here on business in March 2014. The hotel staff were excellent, especially Katherine & Patty. The staff at the breakfast buffet worked extremely hard keeping the buffet fully stocked. The room was very comfortable and clean.

Stayed for three nights while working in Cape Coral. Rooms are clean, staff is courteous. TIP: Ask for a even numbered room! Odd numbers face the busy highway.
There is plenty of food choice's since the hotel is located in the general heart of town.
When I see management responding to TA reviews it helps with my decision when making a hotel choice (They are paying attention). But Note to JOSE: Your response would be more sincere if they were not standard corporate Cut and Paste response's.

Room Tip: Upper floors with even room numbers.

I stayed from 4/9-4/14/14 . I was in town for a wedding which was located behind the hotel at Brew Babies (also VERY good). The hotel was in great shape, and my room was cleaned very well and the pool was a great escape when I wasn't running around doing errands. My room was located on the 4th floor overlooking the back parking lot and close to the elevator. I found this perfect since the other entrance by the pool was close to the parking lot.
A small complaint was that the AC was loud, it sounded like a jet taking off everytime it went on. After a couple days it just became white noise and the room was like an icebox, just how I like it.
The breakfast was tasty but after a few days of it, it does get a little tired. There are very good other breakfast places close by as well.
Other then everything explained, I would most definitely stay at the hotel again. Great rates and friendly service.

Dear Champ520,
Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Express Cape Coral for your stay during the wedding. It is always flattering to hear when a guest enjoys their stay! Hopefully next time you come to Cape Coral we can get a quieter AC for you, but we are certainly glad that it kept the room nice and cold for you. Hope to see you again soon!

This hotel is older and they have started to remodel but the carpet and furniture in the rooms needs updated. Although it was very clean and probably the best customer service I have experienced in a long time. The ladies at the breakfast bar work really hard to keep that nice and clean and do an excellent job.

Room Tip: get a room on the parking lot side otherwise could be noisy as the street in front is pretty busy

Just returned from a week at this hotel and enjoyed every minute. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Our room was in the back and we enjoyed live music on the balcony every night from the Brew Babies restaurant. The pool was cleaned every day, and the water warm and relaxing. The breakfast was excellent every morning, "hosted" by Katherine who greeted everyone every morning with a big smile and by the end of the week..a hug. It was the best "free breakfast" ever! We had a big, filling breakfast every morning and didn't need to eat again until dinner time. Lots of restaurants close to the hotel, one of our favorites was Iguana Mia just a half mile walk. There's a huge Tiki Bar just steps away at the Dolphin Key Resort. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely go back. I really don't understand the negative reviews at all. We found NOTHING negative about this hotel. It was wonderful!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel---over the parking lot, not the busy street. It is very qui...
