Reviewed August 30, 2012

I usually stay at a cheaper place down the street (I have an FSU student) but this one was only a few bucks more so I decided to go for it. Check in was a breeze; really nice check in clerk. Room was just fine. Bath towels were thin but easy to get more. The room had a refrigerator which was nice. The pool area was also good. Breakfast was cereal, danishes, juice, etc. and also freshly made waffles (there may be a wait for those if people are in line). This is about fifteen minutes from FSU campus depending on traffic and local to a lot of things. I'll definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't go by the pool - loud with kids because it's open til 11.

I needed an inexpensive hotel close to FSU in Tally and looked up HJ Express in town. The reviews seemed good so I gave it a try. I was impressed! For an inexpensive hotel, it was good inside! It looked freshly remodeled and everything was clean and new. TV had a zillion channels and bathroom and vanity area were excellent. It had a small safe and A/C was quiet and very efficient. They had a limited continental breakfast, but for free what do you want. Overall great value, clean, smelled good.

And not to mention very close to apartments and dorms.

We found a coupon for this motel on Florida Hotelcoupons magazine and we are glad we did!
We stayed for one night and we found a big clean roomwith a king bed and well equipped (hairdryer, fridge, microwave, iron, vault, coffee maker and iron).
Linens were clean and you have plenty of towels on good conditions.
With the staying you have a complimentary continental brreakfast with orange juice, milk and cereals, bagels and muffins, sandwiches and waffles.
This motel doesn't have any hidden fee if you use a coupon.
Definetely suggested!

Had a coupon rate of $40 for one night stay. Check-in procedure went smoothly. Room was very clean. Ironing board provided did the job, but needs a new cover. King bed was okay for one night. Wi-Fi worked fine overnight, but was very slow (slower than dial-up) the following morning; manager resolved the problem fairly quickly. Close to I-10 and restaurants on US Highway 27 (Monroe Street). There is a Wal-Mart on the other side of I-10. Shower had very good water pressure; granite-like walls and countertops provided a nice touch in an otherwise basic room. Typical continental breakfast; fruit and low/no carb options were lacking. Smooth checkout. I'll probably stay again the next time I'm in the area.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the highway if you prefer a quieter setting. My room was second floor, two...

We stayed one night in this hotel during our trip to Disney. The hotel is in a easy to find location with a couple of restaurants nearby and it has easy access to the interstate. The hotel is far enough from the interstate for noise to not be a problem, in fact the area was really quiet and peaceful. The check in process was slow. The clerk couldnt find our reservation and after about 10 minutes finally got us checked in. The hotel rooms were clean except in both rooms there were a couple of dead bugs in the bathrooms. Other than that, the room was clean, had a clean smell to it and the linens & towels were in good shape with no stains or holes. The breakfast area was very, very small and had the usual continental breakfast items. even with the bugs and check in issues I still think this is a good hotel for the money we paid and would probably stay again if in the area again.
