We have stayed here at least four consecutive years and everything is always great. It's so convenient to visiting friends and relatives in the Villages. We'll be back!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Soccer5 Upgraded next to laundry room!
We have visited our parents in The Villages for past 15 years and have stayed in this hotel, sometimes for a week at a time.
Before arriving, we received a call that we had been upgraded from our two bed room, to a king with pull out sofa, supposedly, a bigger room since we have a 13 year old daughter and 15 year old son!
Upon arriving we find our room did not have a secure lock, which I broke into with a credit card! Secondly, we were awoken every morning with the sounds of washer/dryer adjacent to the room!
Manager was kind enough to give us 1,000 reward point and $50 off the bill, which in my opinion is not enough for moving us, supposedly to a "better" room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STLBG Mutiple Stays; All Super!
We made our tenth and eleventh visits to HI Express-The Villages Christmas Week of 2013 (three nights and two nights w/ one night away for business in Miami the day after Christmas). We could not wait to return after a miserable night in Miami.
We do not return without reason. You cannot beat this hotel in that general region though I have regrettably tried on a few occasions to save a few $$$. Those were our loss and disappointments. I will always look forward to staying at this hotel when visiting my elderly mother.
Over the years the place has only improved (somehow) in all aspects. The staff and management are genuinely devoted to the satisfaction of their clientele and the facility has constantly been upgraded as years have passed.
With three small children the only possible suggestion for improvement I can come up with would be to add an indoor pool because contrary to rumor it is not always sunny and warm in Florida. In fact it has been cloudy, rainy and nasty during our last six winter visits. As result my children ages 4 to 6 have never been in the pool. None the less they look forward to the food and staying in the suites.

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years and it only gets better with each stay. I am a senior citizen with three very small children and needless to say my family is high maintenance. The cheery staff however seems to oblige every unusual request. I have tried other hotels in Leesburg and Ocala when visiting my elderly parents but this is the ONLY place to stay in THE VILLAGES.
I did have trouble filling-out this review form with sliding ratings almost rated everything one star!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gloria3435 Bad experience
We had been to this facility twice before and had had a comfortable stay. This time after having made our reservations 6 months in advance the room we reserved was not available on our arrival and they said we could have it the next night. The next night it was not available. When it was not available on the third night we left as we felt that the room would never be available as it was an expensive suite that they wanted to rent at the higher price even though they had guaranteed us the room and rate 6 months earlier.
Beware of this hotel and what they promise you.

I have stayed at this motel a number of times, and each time is a most pleasant experience. I have also found the people who take care of the rooms are some of the best. My only regret is that I have to make the trip back home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeBeth Nice property, comfy beds
I've been to several Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express properties, and this is one of the better ones. The rooms were clean, the halls stayed quiet, and it was easy to get in and out. Breakfast was better than average. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the Villages.

Stayed here for weekend while checking out The Villages. Staff was helpful and very accommodating. Rooms were clean and
bed and pillows were very comfy. Hubby & I only had coffee in the mornings, but I will say they had a nice enough selection of breakfast items to choose from.

My husband and I stayed at this location on our way to Southern Florida. We love this hotel and stop frequently on our way. We can always count on great service and a clean and comfortable room. The employees at the desk are always friendly and helpful. We can walk to the Spanish Springs square in the Villages, enjoy the entertainment, and head out the next morning.

We sold our home in The Villages and intend to rent there in the winter. Before leaving, we stayed three nights in the Holiday Inn near Chili's Restaurant and had a wonderful experience. The manager, Dave, and his staff went out of their way to make our visit a memorable one. When we return in February, the Holiday Inn is at the top of our list of places to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nygeno59 What's that smell?
Room had a constant musty odor. Alarm clock from the 1980's. Chair / desk mismatched: chair too low for desk which made for very uncomfortable computer work. Tub drains so slow that there was several inches of water by the end of my shower. I've definitely stayed at better HI's.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor21 HIG the villages 9-2013
Unfortunately this was the worst HI express I have ever stayed in. The room and facility is somewhat run down. The room had an odd odder, the air conditioning was manual which meant it was always on --no thermostat. We had to leave the room we stayed in due to a dirty bed cover and the King size bed that had a bad spring. When we were moved to another room the sink did not drain correctly, the first towel we used was torn and the shower was extremely hard to operate. We have stayed in other HI facilities and were always pleased but this location needs attention.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sronce1988 Good for travelers who want peace & quiet
It was nice to stay here where the atmosphere was quiet and there were no guests who were excessively loud. I travel nearly every day of the week for my job and need a place to stay where I can have peace and quiet after a long day of work. The Villages gave me just that.

Had a dehumidifier running in the room when we arrived, at one point while we were out it shut off causing the room to have a bad odor upon our return.
The scrambled eggs were over-cooked.

I love this Hotel, always stay here when in the Villages, a few things I want to mention, the pillows were not as good as they use to be, very lumpy. The pool furniture was in very bad shape rusty and needed some repair. The air conditioner in our room seemed old and not running at its best.

This hotel is a great value, The check in was efficient, my room choice was available. The room was comfortable, my husband unfortunately caught a cold and spent lots of time in the room but was able to rest very well, The room was quiet, no noise from the street at all. The breakfast was also good, plenty of choices for your morning meal. Would definitely stay here and recommend to family and friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcarno53 Best Hotel for overall experience.
We absolutely loved this hotel and will recommend it to everyone, friends & family alike. Everything about it met our expectations and went beyond. The staff is so friendly and go out of their way to accomodate you. The pool area is lush and has many chairs, the free breakfast is so extensive, your stay practically pays for itself! It is in a perfect spot, right off highway 441 and close to everything. The market square is a short walk away behind the hotel where there are restaurants, bars, shops, movie theaters and free entertainment every night. We came to Florida to visit a grieving relative and ended up with an unexpected wonderful vacation. We love you Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites!
