Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jazzyjazz Nice spot along the highway
The desk workers were very friendly. Room was clean. I was annoyed that the cleaning staff knocked on the door TWICE in the morning to see if I was still there. Check out is at 11:00 and I was gone by 10:45. That left a poor last impression. I have been to this location twice. I would have left a better comment after my first stay, which went perfectly. The second time there was also a noisy child yelling in the halls at night and again in the courtyard in the morning, which wasn't horrible, but didn't help my stay.

We will be staying again at this Holiday Inn because of its great location, very efficient staff and the overall comfort of the rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast experiences and the patio by the lake for coffee.

This hotel has always been my 1st choice in the Brandon area. I stay here 6-12 times a year for work and never had an issue that wasn't rectified immediately.

If you are asked to stay on the second floor, beware of the TV noise from the lobby, otherwise stay here was enjoyable and staff was very friendly.

When I was lost going from the airport to the hotel ( and the highway was closed) Kissa stayed on the phone with me the whole 30 minutes it took to get me back to the hotel. Excellent customer service!

Dated property that is frankly overpriced. I couldn't get comfortable so I checked out early.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandpa44 great experience..
Staff was friendly and helpful from day one to check out. Didn't experience any problems with the room other than the pillows were a bit soft. Forgot to check the closet to see if any firmer pillows were available; didn't ask the staff for help. The hotel was neat and clean inside and out. The view from the breakfast area is great with the lake and the grounds...
One of the elevators was acting up a bit and the manager said she would report it immediately. It didn't appear to pose any danger; just slow at times.. Next visit will be in Sept. then again in Oct. Looking forward to those occasions....

This is a very nice hotle. We would recommend it to any one traveling to the Tampa area. Regrettably a previous guests inconsiderate behavior ruined our stay. My wife and I are allergic to cat saliva and dander. Although our room was supposed to be non-smoking and pet free it was not. Prior to our stay the previous guests had kept a cat in the room and allowed to roam on the beds and easy chair. needless to say at the start of the second day of our visit we were dealing with swollen itchy eyes, trouble breathing, and severe nausea. Pet owners should be considerate and not smuggle their beloved pet into the room and cause other guests to suffer as a consequence of their reckless behavior and disregard for hotel policy and guest rules. The Front Desk person, Maggie, was very concerned and apologetic. She offered to move us to another room and do anything else to make our stay more comfortable. This unpleasantness was the direct result of a previous room occupant disregard for others.

Great place to stay. Lots of things close by. Quiet and comfortable, nice rooms. My only concern was that on my day of checking out the maid tried to come in at 7:00am and again at 9:30am. While check out is at 11:00am. I know they need to clean the room, but wait till the customers gone first.

This is a great hotel. My only real complaint was the lack of plugins in the rooms. Breakfast was awesome. Pool needed a cleaning.

We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable; and the staff was very friendly. Brandon was a good location for us since we were visiting family in Valrico. We will definitely stay at this Holiday Inn Express again during our next visit.

After a very long drive it was nice to finally get to our motel. I was very pleased with the way the property looked as we entered onto it. Once inside and started our check in, we could finally relax!
The staff was wonderful, the rooms are great and the pool offered us exactly what we needed!
The morning breakfast turned out to be a nice surprise, hot and good for a continental breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bloomington Girl Great vacation thanks to HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS
We traveled from Illinois to Florida and utilized our points for our entire 9 day trip. We stayed at this location for 3 of those nights.
Upon arrival--I was quickly impressed with the exterior landscaping.
Many luggage carts available for my use, convenient parking and the clerk was very nice.
My room was spacious for a standard king room with sliding doors to the pool area.
Although we never used the pool, it looked very inviting and many guests (although never overcrowded) were enjoying the pool.
Breakfast was nicely presented even though I came down just at the close of the complimentary service--the hostess still assisted with ensuring I had juice and what I needed.
A great stay!
Will stay here again when in the area --for sure.
PS Location is perfect as right off Cortez which has many restaurants, stores and also the main road into Anna Maria Island---

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChicoPR Great Choice
It was a very pleasant stay. I was skeptical at first because I had never been to this part of town but it turned out great. The room was adequate in seize, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very good, did not bother me but when I need something were ready to go. The facilities were very relaxing. Amenities around close to the hotel were on point with lots of restaurants, shopping, and pretty close to major highways (I275 & I4, about 30 min from TPA). I will definitely be staying at this location if/ or when I return to the Tampa area.

From the time I checked in until we checked out the front desk staff was very attentive to my needs. I was given directions to 2 places of interest and was very accommodating to any questions I had in regards to the Tampa area. I would highly recommend this hotel. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds and a great variety of breakfast to choose from.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Johnson Girl Nasty Rooms
This was my second time staying at this hotel and after my first experience of a non smoking room very smokey and AC not working in room, I should've learned from that. I wanted to give the hotel another chance because it was convient to where I needed to be during my visit in Brandon. On July 18, 2014 I arrived and checked into my room, got to the 3rd floor to the room and the room looked as if someone was living there (room 337#. It was not clean, the bed wasn't made and things were all over the floor. I went back down to the front desk, got another room, second floor and it was nasty #room 216). Blood on toliet and bed skirts had white spots all over them, see pictures below. I would never stay at this hotel or any other Holiday Inn & express ever again. The hotel clerk gave me 1,000 points for my IHG Rewards Club Member. but that means nothing. My kids were so upset. Ruin my trip.
