Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Content I booked a double non-smoking room ahead of time online after staying here a year ago and being happy with the experience. Upon check-in I was upgraded to a suite which included a king bed and arm chair/footstool. Everything about my stay was great. The staff were friendly and always greeted me on my way in and out the door, the breakfast available was good, and having access to coffee/tea in the evening was a nice bonus. The location is perfect if you're needing to get places quickly throughout St. Pete as it is literally right off the highway. November 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great bed good sleep good stay will be back to stay here again. The staff was friendly November 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place to stay Room was comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Craig at the front desk was helpful and personable. Nice breakfast. Cracker barrel right next door is convenient. Definitely would stay here again. November 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff I have stayed here many times the past two months and would recommend this hotel. I base this on the excellent front desk staff. I was cheerfully greeted upon arrival and each time I passed by the front desk. The staff is welcoming, cheerful, courteous and most helpful with any requests I had. The staff that oversees the breakfast area met me with a smile and "hello" each morning and made sure all the guests were taken care of. I would definitely stay at this hotel when visiting St. Pete. again! October 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would stay again and recommend, STAFF EXCELLENT Best staff I have experienced at a Holiday Inn Express, extremely helpful, The room was great. Breakfast bar fresh and well attended. Really enjoyed my stay. October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place but could be noisy We have stayed at this express hotel now 3 times, overall it was great. However, the second time we requested a room on the upper floors since the first time we were there we were on the first floor and it was very noisy. Well again this time we were on the first floor and it was extremely noisy. People played their TV's very loud and we heard verbal conversations as clear as day, even over our TV playing. Not very nice I can say. Also the one and only vending machine for snacks was not working and the staff could not accommodate us with any help in getting our product. September 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rays' Game A co-worker recommended Holiday Inn express and decided to book a room for the night. We also chose this Holiday Inn for the free bus to and from the game. The only we didn’t like was the pool, they use recycle water. I’m not sure if other hotel uses recycle water?? Other than that I would totally recommend this hotel. September 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always a pleasure to stay at Holiday Inn I would like to thank the staff very much for our recent stay. The staff was excellent as usual.. They will go way out of the way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. And the nightly and early coffe is also great Thanks guys September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, again! This is a great place to stay, especially if you are going to a Rays' game. The staff at this hotel is excellent and should be very proud of the way they work and interact with their clientele . It is a good bargain for the price as well! September 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Service The staff was absolutely outstanding in every way. I would definitely recommend this hotel. We will be back!!! August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay and would stay here again. First we had a confusing reservation due to family coming and going at different stages in the weekend and the hotel handled it perfectly. When we arrived 1 room felt a little damp and musty and they switched and even upgraded us without any hesitation. There was a free shuttle to the Rays game that we used. Breakfast was okay, lots of options and FREE so that was excellent!! The entire staff was very friendly and the pool was very clean and we really enjoyed our stay. August 27, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ehh The staff was very friendly and that's probably the only good comment I can post. The rest of the stay was very average. As for gripes, the biggest one I had was with the odor of the hotel. It tended to be very musty in the hallways and in the room itself. The amenities were severly lacking; the pool was small, the fitness center was a joke. Yes it had both, but sometimes you have to ask if it's even worth it given what each had to offer....Oh and the TV had horrible reception and the cahnnel selection was less than adequate for the weary traveler. August 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Passing Through on our way home from Disney This is a great hotel! It's right off the highway. Super friendly staff, very clean, great breakfast, inside pool, and you can walk over to several restaurants. This is halfway for us going home to Texas. We used our Reward Points! August 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Training seminar stay During the month of June and July my company sent me to St. Pete for training. Both stays were of equal quality. The service was by far the standout. Wether it was getting suggestions or directions where to go, or needing something for the room, the front desk was very professional and courteous, warm and pleasant. A place may have five star conviences, but if the service is lacking, it is not worth coming back. We would stay here again. July 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable first time i did not wake up with back pain, really enjoyed the stay July 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! As usual the staff here were great. The front desk has friendly, knowledgeable , helpful people working there and the lady in charge of the breakfast buffet is always bright and chipper. The beds and pillows were ever so comfortable! Slept wonderfully! July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good baseball spring board. Good experience, the shuttle to the game was a plus. Staff was friendly. Haven't had a bad experience at any location to date. July 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by all staff members very helpfull rooms were clean great service we will stay again great place to stay if you are going to a rays game July 7, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall good hotel Hotel was clean, staff was nice, however the only con for this hotel was the breakfast. I have stayed in many holiday inn hotels with this breakfast setup and the entire stay (3 mornings) there was no bisq or bacon/sausage. We had to ask every morning. The service for breakfast needs a better attentive person in charge of that area. Everything else in the hotel was perfect. July 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean, comfortable and fabulous staff. Late, last minute check in and Adam went out of his way to accommodate us. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. We will always stay here when in St. Pete. June 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing atmosphere Easy place to go to either north or south on I-275. Once there people are friendly and accommodating . The front desk staff goes out of their way to help you. When our shower did not meet my satisfaction, they upgraded us to a suite and were very apologetic that we had to move our belongings. We stay here whenever we come to St. Pete because of the location and the staff. Oh, by the way, it is very clean as well! But then again, I expect that in any place I stay! June 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value This is the nicest place to stay. The people are always friendly, the beds and pillows wonderful, the breakfast always plentiful, hot food hot and cold food cold! Plus they have a free shuttle service that takes and picks up for Rays baseball games. Can't beat it for the price! Oh, yeah, it is clean too which is the most important feature! June 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always a pleasure!! Stay at this hotel 4-5 times a year, usually when the yankees are in town, and the staff has always been wonderful. No request is too big or small, and they will always go out of their way to accommodate and make us feel at home. One time, after getting off a cruise with a hangover, they let us check in at 10:30am, at no extra charge. They also have a wonderful shuttle service. If they had a bar there, we'd never have to leave. June 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The staff rocks!!! I stayed here last week and was very satisfied. My flight arrived early and when I got there I had to wait to see if my room was ready. After a brief wait, I was told that my room had been upgraded and I could check in. From that point on customer service got better and better. All the staff would speak to you, greet you, and offered assistance/directions. When printing out my boarding pass, the printer malfunctioned and one of the staff members was walking by and heard my reaction. He immediately came into the room and began working on the issue without me even asking. Obviously, I really was pleased with the customer service here. My room was clean and quiet. The breakfast bar was typical of a Holiday Inn Express but the area was clean and the buffet stayed stocked. My only negative is the television package. Other than ESPN and HBO, it's basically whatever you get over the air. Definitely will return when in the Tampa/St Pete area. May 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always a pleasure to stay at the St. Petersburg Holiday Inn Express I stay at this property at least 6 times a year and it is always welcoming and well maintained. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay a great one! This is my home away from home. April 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel Stay I have stayed at this hotel for the past year with my company and have never had a bad room.The hotel is a little dated but the staff and cleanliness make up for the what the building lacks April 25, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disgusting Room The room was musty, wet and mildewy. I called to speak to a manager still waiting for a call back 4 days later. Absolutely disgusting. April 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location and friendly staff. We had an emergency trip to St Petersburg and found this hotel to be most convienent. Excellent staff and sevice and would stay here again. April 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by St.Pete Everything was wonderful at the hotel! The staff was excellent and very friendly!! Our room and the hotel facilities were very clean. We will definitely be back, if we are every in St. Petersburg again! April 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, great hotel Was there for the IndyCar race. Great job to the staff and management at this location! March 30, 2013
