My wife and I took a short vacation to Florida and stopped at this HI Express for the night.

Our room was clean with comfortable beds and it was quiet. The bathroom was... More

We stayed overnight on a Saturday. The hotel was fine. Lobby and rooms were clean, but the bathroom could have used some maintenance (cracks in and around tub). The beds were comfortable. The air conditioner is loud, but I like that kind of noise, so it was not a problem for me. It was a nice quiet stay, but nothing... More

Nice clean hotel. Unfortunately the mattress in both the beds was worn out resulting in very poor sleep! There is a new Hampton Inn across the street and will try that next time I'm in the area. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night - and I'm just a tired traveler.

The staff was amazing, our car had broken down and we needed an overnight room and they were fantastic at accommodating us. The room was amazing, large bathroom, very clean, and even a jacuzzi tub in the room. The breakfast was large, and the pool was heated. The staff helped us with dining recommendations and were overall very helpful. One... More

Our team stayed here for the Tournament of Champions (TOC) softball tournament. Played our games in Winter Haven, about a 20 minute or so drive. Nice facility, plenty of parking, rooms were nice, breakfast room and food good, but could have used just a bit more variety. The employees at the front desk and others we met were very kind...

Stayed here for 4 days visiting friends wintering in Lakeland. The hotel is easy to get to and on a great location to visit various locations. The room was nice sized and kept clean. Some cauk in the washroom could be redone to look newer. I thought the bed was great but wife thought is was too soft. The breakfast... More

During the past several months I have stayed in a vast number of hotels, including numerous Holiday Inn Expresses. This is the first Holiday Inn Express that I was unhappy with at check-out.
