Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 168 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by great location Very nice neighborhood and close to everything you need or want. We stayed two nights. First day we walked into our room it was freezing cold. Turned AC up and finally off . The bed felt like everytime I rolled over I was going to fall off the bed. The next morning I requested blankets for both beds. We left and returned around 1pm-no blankets. The girl at the desk said they had to wash and dry them first! I would think that size hotel would have extra blankets!! I also asked same girl about a sports bar across the street-all she knew it was there. Not very helpful to out of towners.. The man at night John was professional & pleasant October 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Out of the mainstream, yet a great location This hotel is away from the freeway, and yet a great location for doing everything from shopping, restaurants, and playing on the island. A very nice and large lobby greats you with sort of an unexpected elegance. The desk staff are very efficient and accommodating. The maintenance staff were prompt, responding within 5 minutes, to fix a problem with the AC. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family, and we will certainly visit this property on our future trips to the Bradenton area. September 26, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff and excellent service This is our first choice of accommodation when we stay in Bradenton. September 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by just ok We stayed for a soccer tournament. We chose a room with the whirlpool bath thinking it would help our soccer player relax after games. The jets on the tub did not work and no one came to the room to fix it. Also, the second day we were there the cleaning person made the bed with visably dirty sheets. We didn't say anything because we were checking out early anyway. September 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Facility and great Staff Stayed for several weeks. The Facility was clean and the Staff was very attentive. August 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We had a good stay, but hotel needs to pay attention to certain points We stayed over a week in this property. What we liked was: - Distance to the beach and all local shops and restaurants; - General surroundings of the hotel (parking, terrace); - It`s not a party place hotel, so quiet rooms and plenty of space at the pool; -Reception, always friendly we came with request; - Quality of the beds was good. What we didn`t liked; - Our room was a bit worn. We had a room with a nasty odor and the carpet should be renewed, also in the hallway; - Pool should be cleaned more often, we found a lot of hair in the pool; - Pool area should have a few more umbrella`s; -Breakfast area was small, and everyday the same. Practically no fresh options/fresh fruit (and the waitress didn't really seem to enjoy her job). Overall we enjoyed our stay, however for next year please renew the carpets, remover the hair from the pool and expand breakfast as it was boring after 8 days. August 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Near the Beach I selected this HI Express because it was a short drive to the beach. It was a good hotel. What would make it better was if there was a small refrigerator in the standard rooms. I usually bring my own filtered water and like to keep it cold. I had to buy a cooler and fill it with ice to keep things cool. Could use some additional hooks or towel bars close to the shower, as there is only one small hook for a towel. I liked that it was easily accessible to the main road, but didn't get the noise from Cortez. The front desk was extremely helpful, can't say enough good things about them. August 23, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't beat the government rate! Room was clean and comfortable. The staff were awesome and very accommodating. Enjoyed my time by pool relaxing... August 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Night's Rest We used this as an overnight stay as our last day in Florida. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Our alarm clock was not functioning anymore and needed to be replaced. Free breakfast was tasty and good. Coffee was very good. August 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service. Great location. Friendly staff. If working in Bradenton then this is where you want to stay. August 19, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by POOR MANAGEMENT The room was average just needs some updating. The breakfast buffet was excellent and well stocked. Pool and hot tub was excellent. The major problem at this hotel is management. I was overcharged on my bank card by a new employee. My card was only to be charged as a hold for incidentals, however employee charged me for my room which was already pre-paid for. I bought it to managements attention immediately. Problem was never corrected, no apology made of any kind except well mistakes happen. I have now called corporate 3 times on this manager who has still not yet put the money back into my account, 8 days after the error was made. He has refused to cooperate and fax over paperwork my bank has requested. My advice to anyone who chooses to stay here, check your bank account BEFORE you leave the hotel for overcharges and to anyone who has stayed already stayed here, check your bank account.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handicap room available The desk clerk changed me to a handicap room which I appreciated. I could shower without worry and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioning actually remained the same all night, very comfortable, which was a first. Most hotels/motels A/C seem to never work properly. The breakfast was good, plentiful and varied. A comfortable stay. Thanks, Lucy August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great customer services The 1st day making resv to arrival, departure was treat!!!! The staff is friendly which made my stay very relaxing. August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Never a problem at HIE We had a pool side room , and the air conditioner from the room above dripped its water right down on the track of the sliding doors. I mentioned it to the maintenance guy and he said he can't do anything unless the boses told him to do it . For the next half hour he didnt do anything. Are your maintenance people all micro managed like that? It's a 2 dollar fix and maybe 3 minuets to do the job . And your sliding glass doors would last a lot longer, you have a nice hotel let the maintenance people do there job .They know it needs to be done. We were in room 108. Everything else was great its what we have come to expect from HIE. Thanks Chris July 27, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by johnnie33 Stayed on the first floor. Air conditioner was very noisy. I stay here every 6 weeks or so and I like the hotel. I think the air conditioner needs to be replaced. The lights between the beds were not working either. Some one came to put bulbs in the bathroom, but did not fix the lights between the beds. Person at desk forgot to mention my membership and I didn't get any package. Maybe they don't do that here. Breakfast was good and you get a 20% discount at Beef O' Brady's if you tell them that you are staying at the Holiday Inn Express. They should tell quest that. I will be back. July 23, 2013

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfy & Clean! Great location. Easy access to beautiful beaches, restaurants & shopping. Breakfast & other hotel staff very friendly & accomodating. Pool was clean. Will return soon. July 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4 night stay with comfy bed and attentive staff The GPS could not locate the hotel so we called and used the address of a nearby Aldi to get there. The location was great - near Bradenton beaches, easy reach of Route 41 to Sarasota and Bradenton, on a bus route although used a car. The pool seemed a bit murky and the hot tub had some debris, but we didn't use either - too busy. Great to have a fridge and microwave. Hard working and attentive staff in the breakfast area replenishes quickly. Two story entry, elevator view of pool, and a U-layout gives many rooms a pool view. Nearby Anna Maria Oyster Bar has with great value on various seafood specials of the day. Third floor rooms are quiet. July 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great value-friendly staff and clean only upset that booked room in February-and checked that I would have a refrigerator 3 times-assured that I would. That didn't happen; "sorry Holiday week"-thats why I requested in Feb towels not available when needed July 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good location Comfortable bed and great service. Will stay in this hotel in the future. Good location. July 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and affordable We were staying in town for an event. From the moment I got there the front desk person was efficient and friendly. It took about five minutes. They also told me how to get to my event and explained all amenities. Room was very clean. Breakfast was terrific. June 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fun Times Our Family vacation was a blast. The hotel staff was very helping in guiding us to find good local restaurants., giving us directions to the beach and local attractions. The Breakfast choices were an excellent way for us to start our day at the beach / the pool or sightseeing in town. I want to be selfish and keep this little gem to myself. :-) The location was great, closed to airports/ beaches/ & local attractions. two supermarkets writhing walking distance & many restaurants. The only thing I noticed was that the lobby needs some furniture updating had a "cigarette" smell but this is just a cosmetic upgrade. (personally I recommend removing those curtains that may retatin the cigarette smell . My room was clean and comfortable. Everyone loved the pool I will definitely stay in this hotel again. Thanks to the staff for their helpfulness & knowledge about the area. June 26, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Location I chose the hotel due to its location to IMG. The hotel could use an upgrade. The carpet in the room was very old, slightly damp and dirty. The phone did not work in the room. Room had an odor. Felt very unclean although I could see it was clean. Bed linens were clean. There were people drinking in parking lot sitting on back of truck bed. Felt uncomfortable going outside. Staff not particularly friendly. Not best experience for Holiday Inn Express June 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay...too short :) Only had one night to enjoy, but this hotel was wonderful. Comfortable, GREAT breakfast, nice pool area. Can't say enough but we're anxious to return! June 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable stay. Had an enjoyable night's stay. Was there with 2 other couples. Room was quiet and comfortable. Close to beach. We all really LOVED the breakfast. Would definitely stay again. June 12, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average service , poor condition room. Stay was about 20 percent higher than I had been paying on my nine state vacation trip .Checked in to a king suite with a pull-out sleeper sofa (at a substantial up charge over a standard king suite). First room keys would not work, after two trips back down to check in , finally maintenance worker let us in room . Carpet was torn and dirty, room had the oddest lay-out ever. Unpacked went to get ice , no working ice machine on my floor , got back to room , guess what ? MY ROOM KEY WILL NOT WORK!!!! Back down to check in (I am on second floor by the way) got another room . Second room was identical floor plan to the first one , same general condition. Unpacked family of three again, pull out sleeper sofa and surprise it was filthy and there were no bed linens in my room. Back downstairs to check in ,got sheets , muttered under breath all the way back upstairs, said heck with it and went to bed. Walls were very thin and I think Barnum and Bailey rented the room next door. Woke up at six am sharp (because the desk clerk activated a wake up call to the wrong room!?!?) , went downstairs to a poorly stocked and not very inviting breakfast . Decided McDonalds it is , went to my car only to discover the gardener had mowed this morning while grass was wet (maybe the circus don't get all the credit for all that noise this morning.) Went to carwash and breakfast.....ARGGH! June 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bed and room was nice Nice place to stay,not high end but was kept up nice ,close to the nice beaches and shops enjoyed its location. June 8, 2013
