Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy28 Disappointing and not clean.
We found this property very disappointing compared to other Holiday Inn Express hotels we have previously stayed in. The carpet was dirty and frayed at the door edges. The bathroom floor was dirty near and behind the door. The bathtub floor was very slick and slippery despite the appearance of non-skid strips. I literally had to place a towel on the floor of the tub to prevent the chance of slipping. Overall appearance of the bathroom was just wiped down. We found the beds to be way too firm. Breakfast, which is at 7:00 am wasn't available until exactly 7:00 am and then the food started coming out. The pancake machine wasn't set up and it took too long for it to be filled and ready for my use before I had to leave for a 7:30 departure. I frequently stay at your property in Lake Placid, FL and love it. It should be the gold standard for all your hotels. Besides superior customer service, the rooms are always clean and the bathroom ins't just clean ... it sparkles. I expect that whenever I stay at a Holiday Inn Express and am disappointed when I don't get it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by twoonbike Not up to its usual excellence
This was a disappointing stay for us when compared to our previous experiences. Started at check in when Priority membership was not recognized as on previous stays. Found out when going to bed that the thermostat did not work to late to move.
Next morning the shower controls were vague at best and we noticed the floor was less than pristine, not sure they will get the towels clean after we cleaned up.
We will not give up as the staff more than make up for the deficiency during this stay.

Have stayed at this property many times on business and pleasure. Great location, close enough to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet. Have only had one issue in all of my says and it was made right. Nice place, good price

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sullivan641 Blown Away with Service and Experience
My girlfriend and I spent the night at the HIE Tampa North - Telecom Park on 03/07/2014 and were overwhelmed by the experience and service provided to us. We arrived at the hotel a little earlier and prior to our book room being ready. The front desk (Charles) immediately noticing our IHG Rewards membership upgraded us to a suite. The room was perfect and very spacious for our needs. Bed was great and bathroom very clean. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and well stocked. The girl at the front desk granted us late check out which was just what we needed. Thanks again for a great Tampa experience. We will stay here again and recommend to others.

I am only in the Tampa area several times a year. I have never had any problems and the staff is very nice. I try to stay at this property if a room is available. Rooms have always been clean and fresh. However, the rug at the elevator good stand a good cleaning.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KCHH Filthy room
The room was not cleaned well. I should have requested another room, but I was with my mother, who has cancer- we were staying because of an appointment at Moffitt- and she had already gone to bed by the time I discovered how filthy the room was. There was hair everywhere in the bathroom- on the counter, on the floor, and in the toilet. Whoever stayed there before us had used the hair dryer and there was brown hair goo smeared all over the hair dryer.

The hotel property was nice and well kept. Breakfast has a good variety of choices. The room was clean and spacious and overall well-maintained. Beds were comfortable and slept two comfortably. The pool was great and there was even a spa/Jacuzzi. Would definitely recommend this property for a quick stop in Tampa.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dankar Horrible customer service upon checking in
I have never been treated so rudely during check-in as I was during my most recent stay at this hotel (and I have stayed here several times)! I had noted on my prepaid reservation that I required 2 beds (and had reserved a 2 Queen Bed room in advance) and when I arrived, I was informed that only single bed rooms were available. When I asked why I was not notified prior to arrival, I was told that they do not do that. When I said that I was unhappy with this, she said she would refund me for my room and I could go stay elsewhere. It was too late at night for that (plus I had my 87-yr old mother with me) so I said that was unacceptable. She then told me I could have a King room with pullout sofa - I accepted but said I was very unhappy about it. She then told me that she didn't have to listen to me "going off on her" and told me she would call the police! It was the most ridiculous and rude treatment I have ever experienced. This night manager (Brenda) was very uncaring and not customer service oriented in any way.I will never stay at this hotel again. And my opinion is that, if the hotel chain provides a section for Notes on reservations, than they should read them and act accordingly! It seems that my request was not paid attention to nor cared about.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davisflyer Nice hotel, but the internet is slooooow!!
Was experiencing Internet so slow that I couldn't even check email in a timely fashion. I called downstairs to see if they were having issues and was told that the Internet at the front desk was fine. She suggested that maybe it was my laptop. It wasn't, I was having the same issues with the wireless on my iphone too. In this day and age, I think we should expect a decent internet connection. Perhaps the routers need to be updated or expanded so that all rooms have good access. Other than that, we did have some trouble keeping the room temp comfortable. Couldn't find a good setting on the air conditioner. Other than those two issues, the hotel was nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dick B. overall, a good experience
room, breakfast, people/staff, were all outstanding. if I had one complaint, it would be that the water stream in bathroom sink was
very weak...made it very difficult to rinse toothpaste, etc. down the
drain. I understand water conservation techniques, but that seemed
to be somewhat extreme.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by odxa wornout property
I am a platinum IHG member that travels often on business. I am loyal to the IHG chain. It has been my families unfortunate luck to need accommodation's outside Moffit Cancer research ctr in Tampa. This particular property is less then the norm with this chain and is in need of immediate face lift on all parameters. In addition, the in room smoke detector went off in the room and I had to take the batteries out and then remove the unit off the wall. furthermore the sofa in room 427 is beyond worn and beginning to fray.

What a find! While I missed the signage the first time around, it was well worth the effort to find. Tucked away among tall trees, it felt like an oasis in the forest.

This was a "just the right price" stopover for my teens and me for Saturday night to be able to return to a Tampa event on Sunday. The Saturday afternoon/evening staff were very welcoming, polite, and accommodating with requests. The breakfast buffet was well staffed and had plenty of open seating. Lovely hotel!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy3770 Very Friendly and Helpful Staff; Excellent Room
This was our second stay at this Holiday Inn Express and will definitely stay there again when in Tampa. We've never stayed anywhere with a friendlier staff, including the manager. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. We requested a quiet room and were nicely accommodated. The complimentary breakfast was very good with lots of variety. One of the biggest pluses about breakfast was the quality of their coffee and the flavored creamer...just like home. We highly recommend this location.
