Holiday Inn Express Tampa is conveniently located in the Rocky Point area.... The hotel is clean, staff is friendly! This is my second time staying at this property. Price is right. Near a few great eateries. Highly recommend.

We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise (2 couples). This is our 3rd or 4th stay at this location - always enjoy visiting here. Great location close to the airport with free airport pick-up, and easy, reliable shuttle (small charge) to the Port of Tampa. Hotel overlooks the water, including Tampa Bay (I think). Bahama Breeze right next door - great variety...

The hotel has a very nice atmosphere. They also have a shuttle from and to the airport if you notify them in time. The room was clean and comfortable, although there was no milk for coffee. The wifi worked great.

We stayed here three days before a cruise and were pleased with everything. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was surprisingly bountiful and replenished when down in items. Our room was clean and large with very nice toiletries. A microwave and small fridge also.
