Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spion Great for events across the street
This hotel is within walking distance to the fairgrounds and amphitheater. That was the main reason we chose to stay. The entire staff was awesome. They were entertaining and made sure we were having the best stay possible. If I was going to another event held at the fairgrounds, I would definitely stay here. Plus Ybor city is about ten minutes away and there are some pretty good nightlife choices down there.

Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Convenient to Fairgrounds/Casino with transportation. Needs better selection of pillow choices though.

Stopped in after a long drive to get some much needed sleep. Beds were comfortable. Room and bathroom were clean. Room temperature was comfortable. Staff were very courteous and friendly. The room was dark and quiet enough to enable us to get sleep and to clean up. Thank you for a nice stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CharlotteVisitor Caught by surprise !!!
The room I checked in to had hair on the bed of a customer that stayed in the same room earlier. Could not change room as my roommate crashed to bed after a long night. I went to the front desk. The lady was very helpful and willing to help. She let the room service know. The room service lady was courteous. Gave me new bedsheets and blanket and offered to change. I opted to do the same my self. I saw hair again on the bedsheet given to me but was too exhausted. put the blanket on bedsheet and crashed. Staff is very courteous and helpful. The atmosphere of the property is good. If only a better job can be done with the bed. Also while I was sleeping I heard someone trying to open the room. When I opened the door other guests were there. By mistake my room was assigned to them. Wish I could get comfortable sleep.

It should not take ten minutes to get hot water for a shower and the room should be cleaned by 5:00 in the evening

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NaplesTraveler Excellent choice!
This hotel was an excellent choice for a visit to the casino, or the surrounding area (amphitheatre, etc.). The staff was very friendly, the accommodations were fantastic, and the shuttle service to the hotel was great. We would suggest it be on the 1/2 hour, rather than the hour, to provide a little more flexibility, but that is only a personal preference. The front desk staff, and the shuttle driver were very nice. A good choice!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPrescott407 Great place to stay while attending great concerts in Tampa
Holiday Inn Express is a great place to rest after a great concert at the beautiful Tampa Amphitheater. I always enjoy my stay. Comfortable beds and fresh coffee in the morning. What else is there to need after a great concert. I love HIE and will continue to stay at this hotel every time. Comfortable and affordable.

The room was clean, staff very helpful, once we got in from our flight we were very hungry. The night clerk directed us to the waffle house and it was great!!!!!
The price was what we needed in this economy. With those prices I'm able fly and stay more often and stay longer.

The changes that are being made are great. Improvements are noticeable and making a difference. The exercise room could use some new equipment while you are at it. What you have is old and some not working properly. I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Good, helpful, friendly, and professional service. Good location. Good eats around. Breakfast is ok, was late the morning I was leaving. Lots to do in the area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Bush Gardens, Hard Rock or any other activities around. Until Next time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gomersdaddy Great Service, but dated and noisy
I believe the caption says it all. This facility while clean and fairly well maintained is for the budget conscious traveler more interested in price than sleep quality. Insist on a top floor away from the nearby busy highway and avoid weekends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TER0642 Excellent and Well Run
Perhaps the nicest HI Express I've stayed in. I reserved a two room suite since the extra cost was minimal and enjoyed its roominess.
The breakfast was better than most competitors (Hampton inn specifically) in that there was hot meat and eggs that change daily. Allow me a quibble...I'd appreciate scrambled eggs versus the production omelet which tasted manufactured. Also, the only fruit was whole fruit. Some non-sweetened cut fruit would improve things as well.
Staff was quite helpful upon request, including my request for a late checkout.
A great place to stay when in the area!!!

I feel every staff member was very good. The room was great, the breakfast was good, the front desk staff was very helpful. I would go back there any time , I didn't find anything wrong. In the evening, they had fresh coffee, home made cookies and popcorn for the guests.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by floater35 Not impressed
I've stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses in and outside Florida, and I'd say this one has a lot of catching up to do. 1st, upon check in, I had to change rooms to a non smoking room because I had been booked for a smoking room (even though I had booked a non smoking room online. Apparently, you can't book a non smoking room with points online. Although, it let me). They made me feel as though they were bending over backward for me. 2nd, we were put in a room where the entire floor was being renovated. It was pretty inconvenient to have to maneuver our baggage and kids through all the construction. 3rd, one of our beds had small hair clippings on the pillows as though one of the workers decided to take a nap on the bed before we came in. Instead of giving us another room (probably because they would have to bend over backward again), a man came in and awkwardly changed the sheets while we were still in there. On the bright side, the nights were quiet and the breakfast was fine. I would not visit this place again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tinman1052 This visit was GREAT
During the past 4 months I've stayed at this Motel and have enjoyed the stay with the exception of the check-out. The staff at check-out (Jena) was rude and very un-helpful. She will not do anything but complain and tell you how bad the other staff is. When asked for coffee, she flat out says she wont fix it, you need to schedule it on her time.
