We stayed here the first night after flying into Tampa. It was close enough to the airport for a first night (about 10 mins drive), but far enough away from the airport noise. There are lots of parking spaces, staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and had coffee making facilities. Breakfast was adequate and re-stocked constantly. Overall,...

Stayed here after arriving at Tampa International after a flight from the UK. The Hotel is very convenient for the airport and the complementary mini bus picked us up within 10 minutes of my telephone request. The young lady on the reception was welcoming and helpful though technically she did not acknowledge my Platinum Priority Club membership. The reception area...

Nice location by the water, friendly staff, nice breakfast. Shuttle bus was prompt and very friendly drivers. I agree with others that aesthetically it could use some help - but the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was quiet. It was easy to walk next door to Bahama Breeze for dinner

I am a Platinum member of Holiday Inn and I have written only 2 other reviews. I used points to pay for 2 nights (after making the reservation one hour before check-in) not expecting anything other than another hotel stay; I was wrong! Charles works the desk at night. He is genuinely friendly, greeted me, acknowledged my membership and gave...

Staff: was excellent and very helpful. They answered all the questions I had about the area and the shuttle service. View of water: Excellent. Value: For the price this place is not bad. Renovations Recommendation: Please start with changing the carpet. That will make a HUGE difference. The carpet looked dirty. The place itself was fine but it just had...

I can't say enough great things about our stay. I do agree with the other guests who have mentioned that aesthetically the property could use some updates. BUT, the dated furnishings in no way influenced or diminished the quality of our overall stay. My family & I have stayed in hotels across the United States. I can say without ANY...

I booked this with my husbands reward points. We were here for one night and boarding a cruise the next morning. Using his points, we paid $40 and then used the shuttle for $10 pp each way, totaling $40. The location was good and the view over the water was very pretty. We arrived at 1:30 and they told us...

Had a reservation for 5 nights but had to leave after one because this place gave me the heebie-jeebies!! First I noticed things like stained, dirty carpeting, then chipped countertops & warped doors (see pics). Yes that's a turnoff, but the clincher was a dirty fridge with food drippings and HAIR (yes, hair!) in it plus a lovely black stain...

I stayed here in February for a business trip. The room was clean and in pretty good shape. It's surrounded by other hotels. I wish I had rented a car as the dining options were very limited. There is a pool but I didn't get a chance to use it on my trip. Definitely a decent and decently priced option...
