“Best Hotel for Miles Around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

I agree with a previous reviewer. This is the best hotel in Bartow and for miles around. It is a fairly large and well kept Holiday Inn Express. We had a nice room with two double beds, it was clean and I assume they gave us extra towels because we were staying for two nights...which was nice. The free breakfast will not hold off hunger; if you have a busy day ahead. There is a Perkins just up the road, so we went there once and it was fine. Also, a retro McDonalds right across the street for late night snacks (I had a cheeseburger and real milk shake). The town closes up pretty early during the week, so not much to do in Bartow.

Clean and safe place to stay. Within minutes of several eating establishments. Wal-Mart down the street too. There are not alot of other hotels near by, at least not yet. The area is growing just to the north on 98. The Hot water was never as hot as i would like it but it did the job. The internet was slower then it should have been. Breakfast was the less then desirable, but plenty of other places near by. Very nice friendly staff.

Room Tip: If you'll need laundy stay on the 3rd floor

Hotel was clean and had a helpful staff. Room was quiet when no one was walking down the halls. Wifi was terrible. It kept kicking me off with the laptop and phone. Breakfast was standard. No washer and dryer on second floor. I did not notice anything on first floor either. Air conditioning would not stay on regardless of temperature setting. If you are a business traveler, you may want to look elsewhere.

Clean and bed and pillows very comfortable. Breakfast was adequate but could be expanded somewhat. Internet was intermittent as we were not located near the lobby. Lots of restaurants located nearby and some were in walking distance. Walmart and Walgreens also nearby.

After 90 miles peddling, this HIE was a site for sore eyes and other parts. It was clean with a good free breakfast in the morning. The location was great for restaurants and other things nearby. If you looking for a clean, safe place, the HIE is your place.

We wanted to stay Central Florida while we visited numerous retirement locations. I had some Priority Club points to use for part of the stay so we chose this location for the week. This was the best HI Express I have been in, very clean, staff was extremely helpful with dining suggestions, places to see. The breakfast buffet was good. We stayed during Thanksgiving week and it was a little chilly so we did not use the pool but we did sit out there one evening - very peaceful and nicely equipped. We will stay here again. Very pleased with this location - a bit of construction going on with the roads around the area so it was a little difficult to find and get in there, but that was no fault to them and it will be better when they finish the construction. Thanks for a great stay!!

This hotel was awesome I was given a nice big clean room for my kids and myself. I had had a terrible experience at the Stay Inn with the manager because the room was dirty, bed was nasty,and the ceiling had some spider web on it. This hotel cost more but it was well worth it...friendly housekeepers ,great breakfast, clean pool, and quiet! Restaurants were in walking distance!
