Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 207 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great staff, comfy rooms, variety of breakfast the staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and quiet. would stay here again February 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place to Stay Overall the Holiday Inn Express is Ace! The staff does a great job and they are very friendly. The hostel has many amenities to accommodate most of your needs. The only things I did not like about the hostel is that they allow small dingo's. I could hear a small dingo outside my room whimpering. This is great for people who own them... I don't own a dingo but I don't have anything against them... it's just that it was hard to sleep when I could hear it whimpering. The other thing is that whenever a bloke or sheila would enter or leave their units, you could hear the doors slam. I tried to close my door by catching it before it would slam so that I wouldn't disturb others. I guess this is something that you would expect in any other hostels too so it probably can't be helped unless the person staying in the room is courteous enough to stop the door from slamming. The Brekkie is great. Lots of variety. Also if you bring your bathers with you, they have an outdoor Pool. There's also a Fizzy machine on every floor. There are some great places to walk about that are only a few kilometres away. I got to watch American gridiron on the Telly. They call it the Super Bowl. It's somewhat like Rugby but different. Other than that.. I think this place is a great palace to stay! February 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Enjoyable Stay The hotel was clean, and quiet, and the staff were very friendly. My room was very comfortable. It was ideally located only a short drive from the beaches, and there were plenty of places to eat in the area. My only suggestion would be more equipment in the fitness center. In particular, I would like to have seen free weights there. Also, a hot tub by the pool would have been very nice February 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No complimentary water provided to Platnum Member Upon check in, I received no complimentary water, fitness equipment is inadequate, no towels in the fitness room. February 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleasant Home away from Home My husband and I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express of Largo, Florida while we were visiting my elderly parents and dealing with several issues regarding them. It was wonderful to be able to return at the end of each day to a clean inviting room and to begin a new day with a warm breakfast! We did experience one problem with the hot water, but the staff was extremely accommodating and worked diligently to correct the problem asap! I will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Express of Largo when I need to be in that area again! January 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stay Nice for business overnight stay. Quiet and clean. January 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great room and terrible matresses Great room and very good value but mattresses were like sleeping on a board. January 25, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nicely decorated, convenient enjoyed our stay, very nice rooms, plenty of space, clean and not too far to restaurants, shopping January 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great service... as usual This is why I always stay at HIE if at all possible. Clean room, friendly and knowledgeable staff, good breakfast and good Internet access. There isn't a better chain for the value. Good location with many restaurants within a mile or two. I'm very satisfied with my stay there and so is my accountant! (-: January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Place To Stay! We would certainly stay here again if in the area. Everything was amazing right down to the fluff of the pillows! Even though it was the busy Christmas season, the staff was courteous and the food was great! January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great best place close to everything plan to stay again in February January 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Location excellent , Really good hotel . Friendly staff ,service was good. Breakfast which is free,we had gotten use to the waffle n morning but seem most of the chain are switching out for the pancake machine,maybe because it faster but lose a lot as far as taste. Was truly happy about the location bike trail less than five minutes away,golf course about ten minutes and bowling alley close by . Beach less than twenty minutes away so yes we enjoy the city in our stay Thanks You January 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shower lacked hot wated! Overall our stay was very pleasant. Felt a like receptionist was a little too strict when registering regarding absolute need for license plate # (had rental car so didn't know), but same receptionist was later very helpful with packing material for souvenier. Shower took forever to get hot water and then pressure was lousy. Everything else including breakfast was very good. January 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Less than desired experience This hotel was an overnight stay on the way to our South Florida destination. It was much less that desired. We will find a different facility for our return trip. January 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beautiful room, great breakfast setup. friendly staff Great stay. will highly recommend to friends staying in the area January 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great experience Totally happy with experience and will return to this venue and try others. January 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the money Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. I did get put next to the elevator however which was a little more noisy than I would have liked. I also had a toilet that keep running, I didn't inform the staff however because I understood they were pretty full. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express on numerous occasions over the last year, while visiting my father at a local assisted living facility. I have received consistently excellent service. The staff are friendly and responsive, and management is hands-on. When I stay here, I feel welcome. January 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent experience very pleasant experience at the Hotel, great location 13 minutes to the beach, it is very close to a lot of important places around. Very clean, friendly staff, variety of breakfast choices. the room had a lot of space even though we were 5 and my son. very cheap for the things offered. definetly I will go back again January 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sehr schoener Aufenthalt Rundum gut bis sehr gut, Fruehstueck koennte etwas besser sein. January 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable Stay Staying at this location for multiple nights proved very comfortable. The room was spacious even with 4 adults and a child. The staff was particularly helpful and friendly with any requests. January 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable room Overall, my stay was what I would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Clean, comfortable rooms with great service. Being a new small business owner who travels extensively around Fl, I am looking for value in my expenses and Holiday Inn Express provides it for me. January 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New Years Stay Our stay was nice. Staff was awesome. Location of room great. Convenient to car and to walk service dogs. However the rooms are not sound proof at all. We heard the stair door and side door slam every time someone went out. Our service dogs barked because of it. Smokers were allowed to smoke out the side door near our room. Bad idea especially if you have breathing issues and the smoke comes in your bathroom. We were there for ten days and the breakfast selection is bare they only offer yucky boxed eggs or fake egg omelet. Our room was clean however underneath the bed needs cleaning and because of the shower bench the floor gets soaked which is a fall hazard. Staff provided plenty of towels for us though. January 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and great service Nice hotel at a reasonable price! Great location, not too far from the beach and plenty of good restaurant choices too. January 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a great experience. I arrived at the Holiday Inn quite late as my flight was delayed. I was welcomed at the Inn and shown to my very suitable room. Staff was very friendly through-out my stay. Housekeeping was on the spot and always very accomodating. Nice selection every morning at breakfast. I would not to hesitate staying here the next time I am in town. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Florida family We stayed here twice during the 2013 Christmas-New Years holidays, for traditional family get together. Excellent rooms, good breakfasts, very nice and friendly staff. We noticed the friendly and out-going atmosphere from all employees. That's a compliment to the manager. Just a great place to stay for us. We would highly recommend the location for tourists who don't want to be on the beach. Nice pool, easy access to the beaches and to airports. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Staff and clean Hotel We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a wedding. We had two rooms and one was a handicap room. Both were large and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and pillows were excellent. Sleeping was not a problem. In fact we did not have one problem at this hotel, pool area was clean and inviting. Breakfast was average, could have been more fruit choices, but kids loved pancake maker. Eating area was clean and hotel allowed us to use eating area when we ordered in dinner for our group of 8 people. The hotel staff was wonderful, they always asked if we needed anything, I forgot my phone charger and they had one I could use. The Hotel was clean, friendly and I would come back next time we are in that area. January 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Our second stay This was the second time we stayed at this location because it is conveniently located near family in Largo. The décor appeared upgraded since our last visit a year ago, and was very nice. The room was very clean and spacious. We appreciated the complementary breakfast each morning, but the coffee could use a LOT of improvement! The rest of the food items were standard fare, and would probably get boring after 2 or 3 days. January 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Very nice. Comfortable. Highly recommend. Must stay here again soon. January 5, 2014
