The Stay Smart "I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express" advertising campaign where ordinary people performed extraordinary feats the day after staying at one of the clean, comfortable budget-conscious and business-friendly hotels, may be one of the most beloved commercial series ever. And, it resonated because Holiday Inn Express (like their Hampton Inn Competitors) consistently deliver on clean, thoughtful, friendly...

Stayed there for the second time this past December. We were upgraded to a Queen Suite! Very spacious and well equipped with Coffee Maker, Micro-Fridge and modern décor! Service was great and location is convenient to Bush Gardens! Plenty of restaurants and shopping within minutes! A big Thank you to George and Annette! See you again soon!

We had a 2 night stay before our cruise. Excellent location close to shopping and restaurants. The room was clean with everything needed, the staff were very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was an added bonus. I would definitely stay again.

Our anniversary weekend we decided to go to Bush Gardens and this was our hotel of choice. Not a bad location. The hotel is nice and clean-in the area in which they call the New Tampa. Police presence at this hotel is frequent and they patrol the grounds regularly. Our room was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean. No complaints....

This is truly a great location. They are so close to-75 yet they are positioned so there is zero road or traffic noise. I stayed there the week of November 7th and was beyond happy with the experience. The room with a view of the pool was large, and was well appointed. The housekeeping staff was excellent and I owe...

The hotel was FULL! There were at least 2 soccer teams there and not a single empty room. Even with all the people, the staff was attentive and johnny-on-the spot if you needed anything. The staff was phenomenally efficient, keeping the food stocked every morning and always hot. The beds were amazing! I slept like a baby. I love this...
