Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raeona Great Stay
Very relaxed, lots of freedom using the breakfast area in the evening. This was so nice as we had allot of family. Shuttle service was just awesome.
The only thing I feel needs improvement is the front desk. We always got great service but felt bad for the staff behind such a busy desk - they need more help. I would have been pulling my hair out if I was working that desk but whoever was there always treated us so nice. You are very lucky to have such a great staff.
For sure would stay there again.

Stayed for one night. Staff were nice though the person at the desk had a little trouble registering us. We were able to walk to Steinbrenner stadium to see the night Yankee game so we could avoid the traffic. The pool was nice and the spa was hot. The room was clean and a good size. It included a refrigerator and a microwave. The room had a slight musty smell when you first walked in. Overall a good hotel and would recommend to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harry53 Good Clean Facility at a good price
The Hotel Staff was curtious and helpful. The rooms, comon areas and workout area were clean and in good condition. This is my fourth time staying at Tampa Stadium Airport hotel and all the stays have been equally good.

AC was noisy, mini-frig froze the soda, but the lobby was very nice and breakfast was about what you would expect from a HIE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Liar Breakfast are
The counter for the breakfast items is too small. Food is all crammed together, so no space to ever set your plate down. Also, not as many warmers as other facilities to accommodate all the food choices. Seating area is fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lu801 Staff and service
The hotel was booked solid. I managed to personally foul up my reservation a month prior to our check-in date. The General Manager of the hotel informed me that we were reserved for a king-size bed. When I checked my copy of the reservation I could see my error. We were in need of a room with two beds. She handled the problem - got what we needed - all within minutes!
We were also invited to a get-together scheduled to take place between 5:30 and 6:30. What a treat! Free soup, salad and beer!
The guests could not have been happier! What a great idea for baseball fans, mostly NY Yankees.
Great location, so near the Steinbrenner Field!

Upon arrival we found there was some issue with our reservations.The young lady at the desk although helpful and earnest couldn't resolve the issue.We asked to see the manager.A very pleasant young woman named Soraya came to our rescue..Within ten minutes our problem was resolved.For the rest of our trip she was always there making sure we had everything we needed.She seemed to be everywhere not justing addressing our needs but those of all the guests.All we know was she was the General Manager and her name was Soraya.She was an Angel to us,though, and made our trip very pleasant

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Mags Great value.
First time in Tampa so this was a great location for us - just a short walk to the Yankees spring training games. Nice staff, clean and very large rooms. You get a bonus what with the hot and cold breakfast buffet and the hospitality reception with free beer and a nice appetizer. Great value for what you get. Would recommend this place to stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spaybg Linens were worn and old
It was a quick overnight stay to catch a cruise in the morning. Although the room had an updated bath, the carpet, linens, and furnishings were worn and unpleasant. It was by far not what I expected for a Holiday Inn Express. It was not close to the airport, and the shuttle wait was very long. I would not select this location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJK1954 Not bad, but.
This Hotel is not that bad. I have been staying here every March for Yankee spring training for a number of years. I think the rooms are in dire need of renovations. The arms of the chair in my room were all worn out, and a little stained. The furniture is early 90's. The TV is OK, but no HD. I usually sit in the little Gazebo thay have next to the pool, but it is in sad shape this year. Two old broken down picnic benches. One was completely broken. It has fallen apart from the rust. What does it take to maybe re paint the floor, and add a few plastic chairs? Again, its not horrible, I just think that management should pay more attention to details. I think that I might stay elsewhere next year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PantherFan1 Expected more from Holiday Inn Express
I stay at many Holiday Inn Express hotels throughout the year and
was disappointed in this property. Our television had a
terrible picture, hvac unit in the room didn't work well, and the shower curtain rod was falling off. I took my rental car back
to the airport the night before we left and then had to wait
1 hour and 20 minutes for the hotel shuttle to pick me back up. One shuttle was inadequate for the amount they were expected to do. I had to call three times to remind them I was still waiting. The staff was nice enough but way understaffed for the amount
they had going on.

We were in town for an event at Cigar City Brewery and it was nice to have only a 5-10minute drive from there to our hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

I know that I am only a Gold member since since 2007. But staff really needs to get a handle on what membership means, loyalty, consistancy.
Staff stating that the diner at the end of the driveway is not that bad. Rather than mentioning what I had to read in the book in my room that the shuttle can take me to a better than not so bad location for dinner. Opted to skip dinner rather than encounter the young lady' logic again.
I now travel nationwide and will be in LaasVegas Nevada to donate a home to a Veterans and his family then on to Jackson TN.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jen6703 Need more help at desk
We checked in at 10:00pm on 2/28/14, and the lady at the desk was answering phone calls, administering to the ones purchasing items from the snack bar, and also checking me in. There was a line of 3 others behind me. When there is a big event, more staff would be better. It was also difficult to keep track of the keys since a piece of paper was wrapped around them, and they were falling to the ground. A little envelope would be great. Thank you.

Queen mattresses need replaced! Room not up to holiday inn's standards. Great place to go for NY Yankee spring training. Shuttle system to airport and stadium is really terrible. If hotel doesn't get fixed soon, no one will ever go there! Pretty bad!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by janeway17 This Hotel is in need of serious updating
The room we stayed in had stains in the carpet and on the lounging chair ottoman. The carpet is so very worn. The room was grungy and we would not stay here again. The staff was nice but that doesn't make up for the room conditions.
The shuttle to the airport was filthy and had a cracked windshield.

Hallways noisy heard talking and booming all night. No hot water and cold water valve was shut off under sink. Granite floors in bathroom slippery and so was bath tub was also slippery and had no safety mat.
Ive stayed at a lot of holiday inn express hotels and this one is the one with most issues I've encountered.

When we went to our room it was musty. Called front desk and was moved and upgraded without hesitation. Only downfall was they are upgrading rooms and we got a non updated room so our bed was uncomfortable. But others in our group had brand new beds and were happy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Shuttle
Landed at 8:15 pm. Called hotel. No answer. Called hotel again. No answer. Called IHG direct. They call hotel and finally get an answer. Connects me to hotel. Hotel will send shuttle right over. 45 minutes later. No shuttle. Call hotel. No answer. Call hotel again. Get answer and they say he will be right there. 30 minutes later shuttle picks me up. Drops a group he had in the shuttle off at a restaurant. We than go pick someone else up at another restaurant. Driver drives like a maniac. Other people in Van ask him to slow down and drive more safely.
10:30 pm arrive at hotel. No welcome Mr. Tobin. Nothing.
Here is your key.
Weak at best. Worst Holiday inn express ever.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mtarani Clean spacious rooms, good breakfast, no hot water that morning...
We arrived late in the night around 1am, the room was a king suite with lots of space and was very clean. TV was very small in the corner of the bedroom hanging up where it was hard to see it. The temp in the room was very cold upon arrival and we had a hard time getting it to where it was a comfortable sleeping temp. We had no hot water in the early morning due to a maintenance issue we were told, so no hot shower after freezing all night. We went to the breakfast bar which was the best part of our experience. Nice place to lay your head for a night and even better if your going to a game with the stadium right down the street. Overall if the room was a bit warmer and the hot water didn't break that morning it would have been perfect, but things happen and it was just my luck!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LongIslandRetiree Convenient and comfortable
We needed a place to stay overnight for an early flight from Tampa airport. This location is an easy ten minute drive to the airport where we dropped off our rental car and walked into the terminal. We checked in at 5:15pm and were invited by the desk clerk to come to the manager's happy hour from 5:30-6:30. Beer and wine, soup and salad were much appreciated after our travels. We sat outside on the patio by the pool and watched the sunset over a pond with fountain and ducks. Very peaceful and no airport noise at all. The room was comfortable with fridge and microwave. A good value.
We ate dinner at a little diner we walked to. More dining options are a car ride away. The location is set back from the highway which minimizes traffic noise but makes it a little harder to find when driving by.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Golfhick Check-in and No hot water
Original check-in on Monday had to be modified. Girl at front acted like she didn't want to bother with doing that. I re-checked in on Thursday and the front desk man was very helpful and hospitable. Showers in the morning were luke-warm at best, slightly better in the evening. Shuttle service was great. Would recommend with modifications to facilities
