Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John 43 Every was perfect
I stay at this hotel at least 6 to 8 times a year. I would not stay at any other in this area.From management to front desk help they are all very polite. The rooms are perfect and the breakfast is excellent. Location is perfect for everything I want to do in the area.This is probably the 7th. or 8th year I have stayed at this hotel and I will keep staying for as long as I am in this area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SmallWonder Super soft bed and slow housekeeping
Both beds in the room were so well worn and soft you literally sank in them. It is seriously time for new and quality mattresses. Additionally, housekeeping services while good are very slow. It is absolutely ridiculous that our room, as well as the rooms of other members of our party, were not serviced until well after 3pm each day. We were a total of 4 people in two rooms so it wasn't as if we were a large group. We did understand there were several large groups staying at the hotel, but as we have stayed at this hotel before and experienced the same thing I believe it is a problem with the management of the housekeeping department.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcf100 They aim to please
This is a great place to stay if you are attending the Dixie Grand. It is very close to the shooting complex. Julie at the front desk went above and beyond to make sure my reservations and priority rewards nights were correct. She was very friendly and happy to assist me. The beds were very comfortable. Rooms were spotless. There is even a washer/dryer for guest to use. I did use them one night. They were in excellent working order. The breakfast was delicious with fresh bacon, sausage, gravy, pancakes, English muffins, bagels, etc. (and of course, the famous Holiday Inn cinnamon rolls). The kitchen staff is to be commended for keeping the dining area clean. We had a great stay - We will be back at the Southern Grand!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donald0522 Beautiful Accomodations & Great Location!
I stayed with my family over the Thanksgiving weekend and found this hotel to be extremely comfortable and the staff was incredibly friendly an accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated and cozy. The beds are so comfortable you can't wait to climb in at night. Breakfast was delicious. So much to choose from. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Great ideas for eating out nearby and enjoying everything the area has for visitors. The location was perfect for enjoying a day at Busch Gardens in Tampa as well as an afternoon in Clearwater on the Beach. So close to everything. My family and I will be back again very soon.

I spent 9 days at this Inn, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate, even lending me an umbrella to use for a very rainy day! The room was spacious, very comfortable, quiet, and maid service very amenable….just what I needed to recover from bronchitis! The gym very clean and adequate. Overall, I could not recommend any improvements! Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scooter 53 Responsive staff ... good service.
We've stayed at this facility a number of times over the past three years. Overall, it is well maintained and the staff is friendly and attentive. We had a couple of minor maintenance issues in our room this last stay, but once brought to the attention of the staff, they were resolved quickly and effectively. For the price I think it's a very good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Only one complaint
I rated my overall experience as good. We are fairly new to the HIE hotels. We had an outstanding visit in Dunedin about a month prior to our stay in Oldsmar. The room, 2 qn suite, is a great size and there was nothing we needed. The only issue I had was the distinct smell of urine in our bathroom. The bathroom was clean but the odor was so present it gave you the impression it was not clean. That was my only true complaint. I hate to compare it to Dunedin but since that was my first HIE experience it is all I have to base things on. Dunedin HIE is on my list to return and recommend. Oldsmar... well lets just say that if it wasn't located right near my son, it would not get a second chance. Next time I will request to see the room before to verify that the bathroom doesn't smell.

Visited family in Tampa area. Slept and ate breakfast at hotel, otherwise elsewhere. Friendly, efficient, breakfast staff and the cinnamon rolls were better than most hotel complimentary breakfasts combined. Room very clean. Would gladly stay again, just wish they were also pet friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KWAS Good hotel
The hotel is clean and the staff is very helpful. There are 2 minor items, which sould be improved:
- the breakfast area is pretty small (just 6 or 8 tables) and we had to either wait for a table or take a breakfast to the room. Few more tables would probably solve the issue.
- even if the rooms are clean and in good conditions, in our bathroom we could see that towell rack was a litle bit out dated with signs of corrosion - it is cheap and quick fix to replace it.
Anyway, the hotel is worth recommendation.

Check in was quick, greeted and welcomed as platinum member and received a goodie bag with bottled water and snacks.
Upgraded to a very nice suite, probably the best I've had in a HI EXP.
Applebee's next door if you need something to eat. I got half rack of ribs to take out and enjoyed.
Breakfast was usual fare but for me better than most HI Exp because the scrambled egg was fresh.

Found the staff to be very helpful. Had a little problem with my
T.V. and a gentleman came up and took care of the problem
immediately. The staff at the desk was very helpful in making
arrangements for my transportation needs. Breakfast was
very nice and the bed was very comfortable and clean.
Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SQFFPgold Great value and excellent location
I stayed one night (Nov 29 to Nov 30, 2013) and was quite surprised to find how good this hotel was. It is conveniently located, I.e. Not too far from the airport, Asian restaurants are within 20 minutes drive and the area is really safe and quiet. I was met with a real professional check-in staff who presented me with a holiday inn express gift as a gratitude of being an IHG club member. Most importantly I value my stay at this hotel since the manager was willing to match the rate I paid on the first night during my subsequent stay on the third night. All in all, I was very pleased to find this hotel and I am looking forward to staying here again the next time I visit a Tampa.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SQFFPgold Great value and excellent locations
I stayed one night (Nov 29 to Nov 30, 2013) and got a terrific rate. On the third night when requested the same rate I was paying, the hotel manager gave that to me without hesitation. In addition, the staff followed up by personally calling & notifying me. I will be back staying at this hotel if I ever visit Tampa again.
