Spent 2 nights before heading to Clearwater Beach. Hotel was decent and close to zoo. Hotel is conveniently located next to Bahama Breeze restaurant which is a must go. My one complaint would be lack of fruit for breakfast. first morning there was only bananas and no fruit at all the next morning.

We seldom write reviews about short stays in generic hotels on the road, (ie. Holiday Inns, Hampton Inns etc.) because they usually serve their purpose. We stay in these often , and have stayed in this HI Express at least 4 or 5 times in the past over the years and have been very satisfied. In late March we stayed...

Super friendly desk staff and custodial staff. Breakfast was fine and well stocked. The mattresses on the third floor were very hard. Room was fairly clean. Pool was nice with a water view.

We stayed here while visiting our daughter and son-in-law who live in Tampa. It was a very run of the mill hotel. I realize there's not much they can do about it because of where they are, but the parking lot is teeny tiny and the parking spots are crammed up next to each other. Not enough handicapped parking spaces....
