Cost was little more then I wanted to spend but Hotel surpassed my expectations. The place was very clean- did not have any bad smells like so many places in Florida has. Then add in the Front Desk staff was top shelf- almost felt like hanging out with them because they treated me so fine.

My wife and I came down with my entire family for my grandfather's funeral. While the event was somber, this hotel facilitated rest, relaxation, and fun family memories. The king size beds were extremely comfortable and the free breakfast was much more than I expected. I had never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before but now it is a... More

We had an excellent overnight stay. The hotel is easy to find, with easy parking. The staff was very friendly and welcomed us with delicious holiday sugar cookies. Room was very clean. Good breakfast too.

The suite was reasonably large and the mattress was excellent. The staff was very pleasant. Breakfast was typical, but the hostess was lovely. The filter on the a/c unit needed changing...there was a musty smell when the unit was on. We asked for a "no pets" room...the hotel apparently allows pets in some rooms. Overall, the accommodations were decent.

Staff was friendly. Room was clean and smelled good. Felt comfortable. Would stay again. Even my son was happy. We saw another hotel that was 75$ a night and it was horrible. This is exactly what we were looking for especially after a long day at Lego land.
