We stayed here 2 nights, before and after a cruise. My husband and I both agree that this is the cleanest and friendliest hotel we have ever stayed. The rooms are spacious, and delightful. The staff we met; Donna, Dorothy, Jessica, Anjoel were all so very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. There is not much other in the...

We stayed here for two nights before heading home from the Keys. It was close to Lauderdale by the Sea, which was its saving grace in my opinion. The room was clean enough, but we had to BEG for towels our entire stay. With 4 people in our room, we only were given 2 towels. There were none at the...

Stayed for a night prior to a cruise. About 15 min drive to port. Much cheaper hotel too then staying near the port. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms were nice and breakfast was included and decent as well. Would return if cruising from port Everglades.

I reserved a room at this Holiday Inn Express for one night for November 11, 2016. My room wasn't ready when I arrived, but I was 20 minutes early. I only had to wait about 10 minutes. Room was clean, and the bathroom, as usual was extremely clean. Bed was comfortable, 2 choices of pillows, soft and firm. I thought...

This is my favorite brand hotel to stay, so I picked this one to stay at after a week long cruise. Room is spotless, great TV with a zillion channels - okay about 200+, and fully stocked bathroom toiletries. Nice, clean eating area and darned decent cinnamon rolls at the breakfast bar. The rate is pretty high to what I...

Ask for a room away from the road. We had traffic noise most of the night. The room was spacious, clean. Breakfast was okay. I don't like getting plastic plates and cutlery. Think of the environment! Good price. Takes a drive to get anywhere so make sure you've brought your car. Twenty minutes from the airport. All in all, OK.

Dear doug88888, Thank You for staying with us. Glad you found our hotel clean and spracious. You can always ask for a room in the back (away from Commercial Blvd). The standards for HIE do not allow glassware as we don't have the facility to clean dishes. We stay as green as possible in all other areas. Thanks Again Jo...
