Good visit and very close to Yankee Baseball. Elevators were both broken and staff didn't seems to be concerned.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baseball Coach 561 Met our needs for a short trip to the Tampa area
My teenage daughter and I had to spend two nights in the Tampa area for a local sporting competition. We selected this hotel primarily due to the price that was offered compared to similar properties in the area. The hotel delivers a basic, clean, comfortable room and a good breakfast at a reasonable cost. Its location is perfect if you are attending Yankee's spring training or a Bucs game, but is out of the way for most other Tampa events. If you are driving it is sort of difficult to find as it is hidden behind a boarded up restaurant.
The only issue that we faced during our stay regarded the two elevators. When they were working (which wasn't always the case; fortunately we could easily hike the stairs) they were extremely slow.
On the positive side, the breakfast was above average for a Holiday Inn Express and it was very convenient that the restaurant opened at 6am on the weekends.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Berkley500 Needs Updated
The motel and infrastructure needs updated. I have to write up to 50 characters so I will continue. My point is that I felt the pool was never clean, Pol towels were rarely available. Staff made myself and the other feel like a nuisance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CES-VB1 Can you walk the stairs????
OK nice place, close to Yankee spring training BUT...........
The elevators never seem to work. This was our first time here. Would like to return but they put us on the 4th (top) floor. Only one of the two elevators worked & the elevator button on the 4th floor didn't work. They wanted you to call them at the desk (good luck at check-out / check-in time) when you wanted the elevator. The folks at the front desk didn't seem to care.
Spoke to several business & vacations customers staying there. Learned that this is a common problem with this hotel. I was told that neither elevator work last year. Seems like this is a constant problem at this hotel!!!!!!!
HOLIDAY INN CUSTOMER SERVICE PLEASE NOTE!!!!!
Would love to stay there again because it is closed to Spring training but this is making me look for another hotel!!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gringaloca Very disappointed....
Having stayed at this property 3 or 4 times in the past...I was not prepared for the number of problems encountered on my most recent stay.
Fire Alarms going off intermittently...the ONE working Elevator out of commission four or five different times during the long weekend. Having booked our room on the 4th floor made this an extreme inconvienence.
Shuttle service to GMS Field (Spring Training games site) was only utilized once..as we were dropped OFF..told that there would be no shuttle back to the hotel after the game ('too many fights amongst the guests trying to board the return shuttles"...??)
NEVER saw a stack of pool towels at the exit/entrance door to the pool area..yet we are NOT to use the room towels?
Never more than ONE employee at the reception/check-in desk and they were ALWAYS backed up with either check-ins/check-outs...could not get an answer to anything...elevator service?, shuttle service?, general information?...nothing. Upside of our visit was the Breakfast crew and Housekeeping...very accomodating and professional.

We have stayed at this hotel for several years and have always been pleased. We did notice on this trip that the furnishings are a little "tired" and need to be replaced. The breakfast, as usual, was very nice with many choices available. We did miss the "Manager's Reception" which had been available in past years.
