“Great sports team spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

My daughter and I just stayed at this hotel for a sporting event. The breakfast was served even earlier than the 7 am stated weekend opening-so we had time to grab a bite before heading out. The rooms were clean and the staff very helpful with directions and suggestions. The manager Sandy even assisted with a late check out when I called from the game to say we were in overtime and needed an extra hour.Thanks Sandy!

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

Christmas time (2013) was the second time that my wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Lakeland, FL. (We stayed there during Thanksgiving of 2012). We had two queen beds with a mini-fridge and microwave. Here are the pluses to our experience:

1) The whole hotel was non-smoking and pet free, great for my wife who is sensitive to both.
2) Each front desk person was kind, helpful, and cheerful.
3) Although not fancy, the continental breakfast was very good, and the service was excellent, especially on Christmas morning.
4. The room itself looked and smelled very clean.
5. The hotel is just far enough from the interstate, which reduced the noise greatly.

About the only negative to our experience was that the beds were a little too firm, but we still managed just fine. Overall, we would recommend the hotel and will be staying here again the next time we are down.

We stayed this past weekend at the HI Express Lakeland North and really enjoyed the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the whole staff.
Would certainly recommend this hotel to everybody.

I had such a nice stay @ Holiday Inn Express in Lakeland!!! I ended up checking in late, due to my flight, and was met with a smile by Stephanie Starr. She greeted me warmly, and offered a fresh pot of coffee. The rooms were great, very comfy, and the breakfast was not bad! (Compared to other hotels I stay at.) Chasity, who worked in the breakfast area, was awesome also. I would definitely stay here again.

Green Features: They are very environmentally friendly....even "green" status!

Good value for the price, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location was convenient. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The only negative was the complimentary breakfast, which was poor quality. Otherwise, a good value.

I stayed at the HI Express Lakeland twice in November. This was my first experience with a HI Express as I normally book hotels within the Hilton chain. My first visit was four nights and the second was six nights. This hotel is close to I-4 which was important for me. The staff is outstanding. They are very welcoming and friendly and do their best to make sure you have a great stay. The rooms are clean, beds and pillows are comfortable, and they serve a good breakfast everyday. Their wifi is excellent, had no problems with a good connection. I'll definitely stay here again.

We stayed here one night before going to Legoland. It was supposed to be 20 minutes away, so we were a little surprised the next morning when the GPS said that Legoland was 40 minutes away. But that aside, the room was nice and clean, and the room had a little balcony the kids enjoyed. Breakfast was included, and was pretty good for hotel breakfast.
