I wrote a review and the email responding from the hotel came through as a blank email, although I enjoyed my stay a lot and found the hotel extremely clean and much nicer than I anticipated, I did have a couple concerns and voiced them in my review, I see that my review was never posted, I guess that's just like when I had the concern and said something it was brushed under the rug and not taken seriously!

This was a very clean H I Express and was pretty close to where we wanted to be. We arrived late at night but Tim was helpful and even gave us vouchers for dinner. I want to say another very special thank you to Tim for making it possible to check out later than usual since we had the baby to take care of.

We called late in the evening because we were booked at the Plantation at Crystal River and it was horrible. Leanne answered the phone and she was so helpful. We had dogs too. Leanne was great at our check in and throughout our stay she was so understanding with our dogs and was very helpful. Reality is that everyone that works there were very nice and professional. The housekeepers were again very understanding with our dogs there and were very accommodating. The hotel is clean and just amazing. Breakfast is good. We will be staying there often due to work and we are glad we found this hotel. Meghan, the assistant manager, was very helpful with all our questions and accommodating. We have only positive things to say about this hotel and staff. They were very welcoming as we stayed there for 5 days. Thank you so much.

Just returned from a 7-day stay at the Lecanto Holiday Inn Express. I have only positive comments about this location. EVERY contact with a staff member was met with a smile, a positive attitude, and immediate assistance. The employees at this location are amazingly courteous, warm, and helpful. Destiny, who works the breakfast area provided a wealth of information on services (we were visiting to help my senior Mom get organized), and happenings in the area, she is a true blessing! After a long day cleaning and organizing at my Mom's house, it was great to come back to the Holiday Inn, relax in the pool (my kids needed it), and finally collapse into the comfortable beds. The pillows are AMAZING...the kids loved the soft, and my sister and I loved the firm! Thanks a million times over for a great home away from home experience. We will definitely stay at this very clean and comfortable location next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, a few doors down from the side entrance. We were in bed late every ni...

I come to this area to visit family each year and am so glad I found the Holiday Inn Express. The staff is very friendly and seem to truly enjoy their jobs and each other. The room is always clean and has a mini fridge and microwave. Beds are super comfortable. The breakfast does alternate the eggs and meat (bacon/sausage etc), there is always fruit, cereal and bagels but the fresh pancake station is a favorite. The morning paper is available. There is a nice pool with towels that has a great shaded area to allow relief from the sun while still enjoying some time outside. The only thing that was a bit off this last trip was that if I was in room when they were cleaning rooms, they didn't come back or even knock to check when room would be available. I was out of the room by 10 each day and the room didn't get cleaned twice.

Room Tip: May want to avoid 1st floor so that you don't hear lobby and cafe noises. I prefer a room on the...

Thank you, Melanie, for the excellent review of our Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Inverness-Lecanto! We thank you for being a loyal guest and greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our friendly staff, clean room and our delicious, hot breakfast! We do strive to go above and beyond for each and every guest. I am sorry to hear that we fell short in cleaning your room while you were out for the day. While it is no excuse, we have a very new crew within our housekeeping department and it seems we need to do a bit of retraining. I have communicated this to the general managers, and it will be addressed. I am happy that we can provide you with a home away from home while you visit your family here in the Citrus County area. We look forward to seeing you upon your next trip to the area!

This Holiday Inn Express is not in a tourist area of Florida, but if you need to stay in the area it is a nice place to stay. Rooms have mini fridges, and microwaves. There is an outside pool that was clean and nice. They do provide pool towels. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. On the down side the free breakfast was only so so.
