I had a bad experience with a hotel just up the road, so I came into this facility and spoke with a stellar reception person - Diego - who got me a booking here the next day and went out of his way to make sure it worked out for me. It did, and I stayed in that room for the

Long story short is we booked 2 adjoining rooms. When we called to check and add a day we were told they never had adjoining rooms for us. Then called us back to give us a two bedroom suite which is less expensive than 2 King bed studio suites. When we asked about a refund

Hello MikeOdd, Thank you for staying with Holiday Inn Express & Suites. It's good to know that you found the room to your liking! I'm sorry to hear that your preference for adjoining rooms was not met. Any request cannot be guaranteed, especially with these types of rooms. These can only be assigned on arrival based on availability as it's highly dependent on the occupancy the night before. I would recommend you book with our direct channels, so you can always opt for flexibility in case your travel plans change. There is nothing wrong with using third party sites. It's just that we have no control over their booking policies and penalties. We hope to have you as our guest again in the near future. Best regards, Anna R Case Manager IHGService

I stayed this week for a business trip. The room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly. Housekeeping comes early. They showed up at 8am while I was getting ready for work, so make sure you have your sign on your door if you don't want an early interruption. They have a

I was a bit nervous when I was booked into this hotel on business. Not because I had seen any bad reviews, but based on previous experience at other properties, five nights in a no-frills hotel concerned me when it came to comfort and space. BUT, what a tidy and efficient

Great location and very modern/new hotel. Shuttle was great! Super breakfast daily and close to plenty of other dining options. Very nice room and super clean too. If in the area again will stay here!

Do you know if this hotel offers an airport shuttle. How much was the shuttle from the hotel to pier? Thank you.
When we were there, the hotel did not offer an airport shuttle. They would put you in touch with commercial shuttle companies, but they were pretty expensive. Contrary to internet listings we saw, the hotel also does not have shuttles to Busch Gardens - though it is an easy drive, you really do need a rental car to get there (unless Uber is an option - don't know about that).

The hotels has a free shuttle within 5 ml of the hotel. They do pick you up at the airport. We used Fox rental car to do most of our running around

How far away are you from downtown Tampa and the beach??
It took about a hour to drive to Clear water Beach. You are next to the stadium and the hotel will take you to the malls, Walmart restaurants in the area with their van for free
