Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LLD2 Room was dated and dark
The guest room suffered from low lighting both in the sleeping room and the bathroom. Removing lamp shades didn't help when trying to see to put on makeup and get dressed.
Housekeeping failed to come twice to service our room during our 18-day stay and failed to clean the bathroom an additional day. Front desk employees were quick to supply towels when called upon our return to the room at night.
Jennifer at the front desk was extremely helpful when extending our reservation from 10 days to 18 at the last minute.

This is my third visit to this Holiday Inn Express. The GM David is very kind and hospitable. I stayed with family and children and we all enjoyed our stay. Fitness center and pool are small but it worked.

Location is great for Spanish Springs, lots of restaurants or fast food in area and shopping venues. Pool was small and could use lounge chairs to make it more comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Singing Nut Great Bed and Pillows
The suite was excellent ... just what we had wanted. Check in was a little off simply because there were 16 members in our group, and we had 8 rooms. Even though I made the reservations, some of our group were allowed to check in early because they arrived prior to us. Allowing them to check in early caused problems with the remainder of us in terms of room selection. Because we were all bowling together, we requested that our rooms all be on the same floor. This did not happen. We had a 95 year old bowler that we needed to be in a room near one of the younger bowlers, and it didn't happen that way. I'm sure it was because some of us had been allowed to check in early. When one person makes multiple reservations for a group, it would be best if none of the group were allowed to check in prior to the one who made the reservations, unless prior instructions are given.

We provide 14 rooms for guest at my daughter's wedding, and it went perfectly. Everyone was very pleased with the rooms, the breakfast and the service. The manager, David did an outstanding job keeping everything in line. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Villager in waiting Great place to stay when visiting the Villages
I have visited the Villages several times looking for a home. Each time I chose Holiday Inn express as they were value priced, near one of the centers, and easy to get to. Hotel takes pride in its cleanliness and hospitality--no one does it better. Add in a value price and it was and continues to be a winning combination. Room was large and was satisfactory in every aspect. Breakfast was OK but had the same things every day....long about the 5th day began to look for something a wee bit different. Overall, a 5 star experience.

I slept extremely well and found the room very comfortable and the service excellent. The food for breakfast was abundant and varied to meet anyone's tastes. I loved the automatic pancake maker! The breakfast gave me a great jump start for the day!

This was our first time staying in the Villages. We found the Holiday Inn very convenient to the area we were visiting.
The accommodations were very good and the free breakfast excellent.
The directions were good and the hotel easy to find.
We found the rate to be the best in the area.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing a room in the area.

We stayed while visiting relatives. It was in generally poor repair and noisy.
The staff did what they could, but they need to refit this hotel.
The AC fan did not cut off ever.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didnotsleepwell Noisey and No Follow-Through
There was an incredible noise that kept me awake throughout the night. It was predominately during the day and you never knew when it would kick in unexpectedly during the night. The manager indicated he knew what the the cause was, a water hammer in the coffee machine feed line. He stated that a credit would be applied to my bill and this never happened. Finally, both my and my mother's credit cards were billed (she used hers to secure the reservation).
In all I was not satisfied with the stay

My sister and I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for 4 nights and 4 days. We enjoyed it very much. The front desk was always extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were always cleaned in a timely fashion and the breakfasts were available for a longer period than most hotels. Price was right. We definitely recommend this hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toothteacher Third Visit...Still Great :)))
We stayed 3 nights this visit and everything was wonderful. We always stay here on our visits to The Villages. This time our brother decided to visit for 1 of those nights and we were able to get a rollaway bed brought in for only $10 extra. The breakfasts were yummy lots of choices: eggs, pancakes, sausages, bacon, toast, bagels, sweet rolls, yogurt, cereals, fruits, coffees, teas, juices. The breakfast area had the TV on to watch the news and the newspapers were there for us. Also in the lobby all day and evening was coffee, tea, and lemonade for the taking. You could if you wanted purchase ice creams and items in the vending machines. The staff was very nice and helpful. The use of the computer in the lobby was handy and easy. There is WiFi, they give you the code when you check-in. We were very happy and will stay here again.

Stayed for one night with our dog. Clean and very comfortable. Staff was helpful. Restaurants close and pizza delivery available. Breakfast was great! Eggs, sausage, cereal, muffins, pancakes, biscuits, fruit , yogurt, something for everyone. Had a king size bed and pull out couch for our family of four. Room was clean, had a mini frig, microwave, and coffee maker. Recommend for families as well as single travelers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeeSunseeker Our first choice.
We love to vacation in the Villages. This hotel is always the only place we stay. We have stayed at least 20 nights in the last few years. It is clean, close and convenient. We rent golf Carts and ride all around the Villages. The hotel has a good hot breakfast. We really liked the new pancake maker. The bed was very comfortable and the price was reasonable. We will stay again later this year.

We toured Florida and stayed in the Villages for four days. The staff and especially the manager was awesome. I've never stayed at a motel where the manager made our stay so nice and friendly. I would definitely stay at this motel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatH317 Great location close to the Town Square at Spanish Springs
This was my second stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Avenida Central...I enjoyed everything about this hotel. I was traveling alone--meeting relatives staying in the area--and I felt comfortable at all times. The location is very convenient.
The pool was an amazingly warm temperature which felt GREAT after a long trip. I wish there was a hot tub, tho', as my old bones really could have used it!
I stayed for 3 nights--all of which had different rates--not sure I understand that, but they were reasonable. The bed was comfortable with lots of firm and soft pillows. Free Wi-fi and an refrigerator/microwave made it feel like home.
A real nice touch was the line of shampoo/conditioner/lotion in a refreshing White Citrus scent. It was a nice change from standard hotel-type supplies.
I always enjoy the breakfast offerings available--I DO wish you would switch up the egg dish--I missed the HIE omelets! The coffee was great--and I noticed the pancake maker, although I did not indulge.
There were lots of people there who evidently enjoyed extended stays in the hotel rather than renting a place at The Villages. I would definitely check into that option if I had a long stay planned.

This place is great, you can walk to so many restaurants from there and the town square has free live entertainment every night.
Can't beat their location and service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mej1947 No Expectations
My first impression of the Villages was the clerk at the desk. Not a good one, very heavy, no energy and acted as if I was disturbing her. My next three encounters in the Villages was similar, it took a day and a half to start overcoming the negative in those encounters before we could start enjoying the surrounding area. I don't expect the hotel to play a role in my stay in an area, but this one did. Holiday Inn free breakfasts are not without a price. If you stay in hotels as a professional traveler, a free breakfast of sugar is not what your looking for to start your day. 2 weeks of scrambled eggs is just too much, I find myself going out to the grocery store and buying fresh fruit to start my day. I stay at the Holiday Inn Express for the bed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy B Fun in The Villages
Being former Villagers, we now stay in area hotels when we come to visit. Holiday Inn Express is by far the best hotel and the best value in this growing city of active "senior citizens."
Located near Spanish Springs Square, it's in walking distance to those nearby restaurants, movie, nightly music. For added fun, rent a golf cart and really take in The Villages lifesstyle.
Having stayed there years ago when we were closing on our home there, this property is much improved under new management. Our only negative remark will be that during the four days, breakfast was the same thing every day . . . would have been nice to switch out scrambled eggs with omelets every other day for a small change.
