“Nice hotel”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms were very clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. Thanks to the housekeeping staff! The breakfast area is nice and big with plenty of seating and even an extra room next door for overflow. It has many choices in food and drink, so everyone is able to find something they like. The breakfast attendant (I think her name was Bernice) worked tirelessly restocking the breakfast buffet and cleaning tables. She was still keeping the area clean and stocked even a few minutes past the "closing time" for us late risers. The cinnamon rolls are such a treat! High praise for Bernice! My biggest complaint was the fitness room. It had two treadmills and a stationary bike. They are right against a mirrored wall, so you are staring yourself in the face, and the TV is at the far end of the room, so you would have to turn your head sideways 90 degrees the whole workout in order to see the TV. But the biggest fault is the lack of outlets, so you have to choose either the TV or a fan (a very small fan up in the corner of the ceiling). Because I couldn't bear to run on the treadmill in silence while staring at myself in the mirror, I chose the TV. But without a fan, the very small room became so unbearably hot, I thought I would faint. Moreover, there is no water cooler as most hotels have in their fitness room. They do have a water fountain (bubbler), but no cups available, so you have to get off the treadmill and go bend over the fountain in the middle of your workout every time you need a sip. Overall, a well-maintained and friendly hotel for the price; just needs improvement in the fitness room. If you are not planning to work out, it's a great place!

Great location is you need access to the Veterans Expressway or Tampa Airport. Conveniences nearby like WaWa, Target, Walgreens, Chik-fil-a.

The room and bathroom was clean, spacious, and really liked the wet bar area with fridge and sink. Nice touch having both firm and soft pillows on the beds. Bonus, was a nice love seat, coffee table sitting area. Great location with easy access to Crystal River, Lecanto, Inverness and Homossasa. The included breakfast provided extra value and was a time saver so we could get on with our activities for the day. We also liked the variety of breakfast options provided. The pool and pool area was clean, a nice size and layout. The free wi-fi was also an added bonus. Reception desk staff always welcoming with genuine interest in our day.

Our stay was pleasant . The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Stayed one night on way home to Canada from further down south. The rooms were very clean and appealing to the eye. We will stay there again if in the area. One down fall for me is they allow pets( I am not a pet friendly person),

Mike, thank you for taking the time to tell others about our Holiday Inn Express & Suites of Lecanto-Inverness. Although we are a pet friendly hotel, we keep all of the pets in specific first floor rooms so that they are away from most guests. These rooms are deep cleaned after every guest. We can also assign non-pet guests to our highest floors so that they are far away from any pets if they happen to be disruptive. We will do whatever we can to make our guests happy. Thank you.

Everything was very good at this hotel " staff/breakfast/cleanliness/wifi/comfort/price/etc.
If you have business in that area or want to play the many golfcourses there : go to this hotel.
Even if you want to visit the Orlando Disney-parks : they're just over anhour driving away from this hotel.

Pros:
1. Clean
2. Nice (small) pool for the kids. (A little too cold for the adults)
3. Good selection of pillows on the bed. ( seems like a holiday inn thing)
4. Free hot breakfast

Cons:
1. Air conditioning-never got below 73 in our room
2. Bed was too hard for me (my husband didn't mind)
