Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerri509 Good hotel
Sharon that works on breakfast was great. The only problem I had with this stay was a musty order in the room when you first entered. Very quickly you became accustomed to it and didn't notice it any more. I wasn't sure if this was from cleaning chemicals or dampness in the room. I didn't notice it anywhere else in the hotel. Also, we had trouble finding the hotel. Even though it is located in Port Charlotte the zip code is for Punta Gorda. Our GPS kept telling us the location didn't exist. It would have been good to know this ahead of time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a happy visitor Terrible experience
I was put in the first room right next to the check in desk on the first floor. Housekeeping was right across the hall from my room. I was also right next to the business center & breakfast area. Outside my window was a patio with a very bright light that was on every night, all night. I was there for business purposes & needed to sleep but that just didn't happen due to noise from the desk etc. Also, whenever the people in the room above me walked around, the ceiling squeaked. I had to put a blanket on top of the ac unit under the window sill to block out the patio light each night. My second night there, it sounded like there was a herd of elephants overhead. This caused me to have to set the ac at 65 degrees to provide white noise all night to drown out the elephants. When I was trying to watch tv, cbs was not available???? When I went to breakfast the next morning, I found that a team of baseball players were overtaking the area. That was probably the "elephant herd". There should be some kind of rules for people to be quiet to not bother other guests. So I would NOT want to go back there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Parshooter Great Bed
Stayed at this Hotel for four nights and have to say it was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on in a very long time. Wished I owned one!! I forgot to get the brand name.
The pool area, although small was very nice as well as clean. The staff was very accommodating, friendly.
My only complaint was the sound proofing of the rooms...I was on the first floor and the Hotel did have a large contingent of college baseball players staying there. The noise from the floor above me was pretty bad, even to the point where I had to contact the front desk to have them please call the room and ask them to stop dancing or jumping up and down or whatever they were doing. Sounded like each person had their baseball cleats on...
other than that it is a nicely run hotel. Also, the wifi system should be enhanced as it was difficult to get on, maybe due to the number of people trying to use it at the same time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crazy Grandma Front desk staff more than accommodateing!
We stayed 2 nights. We were thankful the hotel was able to accomadating us! We did have to move rooms due to us requesting to stay an additional night, the staff even offered to help us move our belongings to the new room! Our only negative experience is that room #126 had a very unpleasant order. We did go to the front desk and ask for room spray which helped for a short time, we believe the foul order was coming from the heat/cooling unit. Again overall everything was great!

All was fine except I would have liked to have had more variety of fresh fruit at breakfast and the heater/AC was a little noisy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty Room Dirty Room
I am a Gold Elite IHG member and always try to stay at an IHG hotel. However this HIE in Port Charlotte is not one I will stay at again. The room smelled dirty( possibly from a smoker or pet have been in the room), the carpet was dirty and stained and the side chair was so dirty I had to put towels over it to sit in it. The noise from the fresh air fan apparently was just above my room and it sounded like jet airplane taking off 24/7. The internet service kept going off and on and when I told the front desk still nothing was done. I was unable to do my reports and other business computer work that I needed to do that evening.
Breakfast bar was OK but the hotel owner obviously gouges everyone in season for a below average hotel. Price was twice what I typically pay for HIE stays even in larger cities.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AudubonDon A nice hotel in a convenient location
We were vacationing in the area and wanted to spend roughly half of our time in the Ft. Myers/Naples area and the other half in the Sarasota/Bradenton/Clearwater area. This hotel was perfectly located for our purposes. The complimentary breakfast was well-stocked with fresh fruit, breads, bagels and muffins, pancakes, eggs and assorted desserts. The room was plenty large and comfortable. The only downside was a noisy air conditioning unit but overall it was a very satisfying stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GM21 Rest for weary travelers
We were very fortunate to get a room b/c we didn't have prior reservations and most surrounding hotels were booked. The front desk agent was very helpful and asked if I am a Priority Club/IHG member.
The heated outdoor pool was a wonderful surprise.
Wish the breakfast choices included more fruit and lean protein such as turkey bacon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jwhipp65 Comfortable and clean
Overall the hotel is above average, as the majority of Holiday Inn Express Hotels go. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, enough towels were available. Guest laundry was working and was an added convenience (inexpensive also). Breakfast was average.
The only complaint was that the young female desk clerk was not helpful at all with a maintenance issue. The bathroom vent ran constantly, and was very noisy. There was no switch to shut it off. The clerk said she would have someone come to look at it, only to find out the next morning that maintenance wasn't even there to check it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fngtravel Planned one night, stayed five!
We checked in, planning to stay just one night, our plans for the remainder of the week still up in the air. After seeing the spacious suite and the comfortable bed, we decided to stay for 4 more nights. This became our base of operations for the rest of our stay on the west coast of Florida. The King Suite included a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, set up nicely with a "bar' sink. The sitting area was a pleasant change from only having the bed to sit on for light meals, planning our adventures, etc. We enjoyed our stay very much!

I had an amazing experience, under a quite stressful family emergency we stay at this facility. The staff accommodated my needs and were overly helpful. The breakfast was way above average and the staff handling the food was helpful. I had a restful experience and was surprised at the value for my dollar. I have stay at expensive hotels all over and not receive the kind, patient, and thorough help from the staff. This will be my new favorite hotel.

I spent 4 nights at this hotel traveling on business. The room was clean and comfortable and a good size suite type. The bed was very comfortable. My birthday fell during my stay, my husband and daughter joined me mid week to celebrate - the staff assisted me in booking an extra room right across the hall on short notice. Oh, and every staff I encountered that day wished me a happy birthday.
It would be nice to see this hotel get a face lift as it looks like an older property - but over all I cannot complain about my accommodations at all.

I have always stayed at this location when I am down visiting family. This time we were having a celebration of life for my aunt that passed away and Everybody there was so nice. They allowed me to use their lobby lounge for the celebration. All the staff was great as they always are when I stay, but they were extra kind to everybody there . I will continue to stay there when I am down south and would reccomend this place to anybody. They are great.

I awoke with a terrible headache and discovered I had no Tylenol with me. Went to the front desk and was told they do not have such items (disappointed with that.) BUT, Jaci who was in charged of the breakfast are was kind enough to drive down the street and purchase the tylenol for me. That's SUPER SERVICE! What a charming and thoughtful lady. She deserves a bonus!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Davidruns Typical Holiday Inn Express
I'm a "road warrior." Over 100 days in hotels, IHG platinum since they rolled it out. I stay in the IHG family a lot. You always know what you get with a HI Express; that’s nice. I called the hotel in advance of arrival for local information and the lady was very nice. Same when I checked in; top notch. Nice room, A/C worked great, good TV, and a nice bed. What else do you need!
One minor irritant, and this is not unique to this hotel: Ice machine on the ground floor only. I never understand why hotels can’t put an ice machine on every floor. I like to get up and fix an iced tea early in the morning; I don’t want to have to get dressed and go up or down an elevator to get ice.
When you travel like I do, you notice small things.
I’ll be back again. I hope they have more than one ice machine then.
