Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RBHB Meeting
I recently had a meeting in one of the Lakeside ballrooms that was a part of the HIE but was in a separate detached building. When I went to look at the property... it was not clean. The restrooms serviced or supplied and were not what I would consider to be representative of part any of the Holiday Inn brand of hotels.
Outside the setup staff member who assisted get the room set up and went out of his way and above duty to do what he could to see that I had everything that was needed - however; the experience was less than I expected out of the property itself.
I think with some direction and care from the Franchise office this property could be a great meeting property - but as it is - I would NOT recommend it to meeting planners.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LP2014 Stay prior to cruise
We stayed prior to cruising from Tampa. The handicap room with roll-in shower we booked was not available upon arrival. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel, grounds and staff were great. The hot tub was not very warm and our room had no internet service for our two day stay. The floor by the elevators needs throw rugs as it is very wet when people are coming in from the pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 83Heritage Good stay
The general area of the hotel seemed a little run down. The restaurant in front of the hotel looks like it was abandoned. The hotel itself needs a little sprucing up. The chandeliers in the lobby each had multiple burnt out bulbs, the floors were cracked, and the luggage carts worn out. The mattresses are nearing the point where they need replaced. The bathroom was nice, with good lighting, the water pressure in the shower is adequate. The A/C was not on in the room when we arrived, and the room was uncomfortable, if not unbearable. I called the day before to arrange a shuttle from the airport, and was hung up on 3 times. I finally gave up and called the IHG rewards number. A shuttle was set up, and we called when we arrived at the airport, and the shuttle was there within 20 mins. Scott the shuttle driver was excellent with our needs. Recommended places for dinner, and a few places to pick up some last minute items. I would stay here again, but it does need a little attention.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClayPA Nice Hotel and Great Staff
My husband and I were in Tampa dealing with a family emergency, so there was no real time to relax. However, the staff was amazing to us the whole time we were there and treated us with so much care and concern, Felicity from the first night was amazing and there with a listening ear. She was very professional and poised and made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. We would definitely stay there again as even though we weren't there for leisure pleasure, we still were comfortable with our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soccerfan5 Perfect Walking Distance to Raymond James Stadium
This hotel is a little gem with very close proximity to the Raymond James Stadium. It set back from the main road yet everything is a close distance away. Not being familiar with this town, we easily found eating establishments and shopping nearby. We chose this hotel so we could attend the US WNT game versus France and we could not have been happier to find that the stadium was a very short distance away. The shuttle was readily available and dropped us off at the stadium and we took a leisurely walk back. The kids enjoyed the pool through the heat of the day and we found it delightful to sit on the pool deck that overlooks a very pretty and picturesque pond. It gave us the feeling of being in a resort without the resort prices. All the staff was very friendly and attentive throughout our stay. The hotel is very well maintained and we most definitely enjoyed our stay here.

We had two rooms for several nights. All went well. Good value. Staff was attentive and supportive of our needs.
This property is in close proximity to lots of areas and things to do, including dining options.
