Second time my wife and I have stayed here while visiting friends. Friendly and efficient front desk staff. Lobby and eating area bright, clean, and inviting. Room clean and fresh. Quantity and quality of free breakfast very good. Close to major road and interstate, but no problems with noise or traffic issues. Will stay here again when visiting.

Needing to rest for the night before driving again in the morning, this hotel was conveniently located off of I-75. We were impressed with their free breakfast, which included: yogurt, greek yogurt, cerelas, breads, bagels, muffins, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, beef/pork sausage, pancakes from an automatic pancake maker, tea, coffee, juice, milk, etc. A free breakfast ususually means danishes,cereal and coffee, tea, milk or juice. This was quite different.
We also got an access code to connect to their wifi.

Our company has a business meetings at hotels all over the country. This was one of the best experiences we have had. Nicole and her staff had everything taken care of from setting up the space to directing our guests where to go. The hotel was clean, bright, and staff was friendly. The breakfast in the morning was excellent as well.
Most importantly our guests enjoyed the experience at the hotel. Great job!

At the end of a long day's travelling the short journey from the airport to the hotel was a welcome relief. The greeting was friendly and the service was speedy. The room was spacious and had a basic kitchenette - sink, microwave, etc.

The free breakfast was also welcome. The choice was limited but at the same time there was something to please everybody.

It's not somewhere for a full vacation but fine for a stopover.

I stayed at the Holiday Express Inn suite at the form after my surgery. I had a very warm welcome from Dawn Parker, Alexa harden, Nicolas logan. I felt right at home the Holiday Express has a loving most caring staff ever to my surprise there was a balloon a get well card and an alligator made of towels on my bed I really do think that just tells a lot about the place to go out of their way to put a smile on someone's face it just means the world to me I highly recommend this hotel for anyone to stay if you want clean rooms good breakfast and a warm welcoming smile then the Holiday Express Inn suite at the forum is your place

We just returned from our four night stay at the Holiday Inn Express - The Forum in Ft. Myers. For those who are looking for a quick snapshot - the hotel is extremely clean, the breakfast is fresh and diversified and it is centrally located. The only drawback was the loud air conditioner at night. Overall would stay there again in the future.

Our family stayed at this location over Fourth of July weekend. Given that the hotel was sold out due to youth boy's baseball and girl's softball tournaments in the area it was surprisingly quiet throughout the hotel. There was plenty of breakfast items throughout the morning and the hotel's staff did a great job while we stayed there.

Our room was a King standard room. The staff thankfully provided us with a roll away bed for our son as there wasn't a fold-out couch in our room (not sure if that is the case in every room). The room itself, while not huge, is well laid out and was clean. Our only complaint was that the air conditioner was very loud during the night. By the third night we ended up trying to freeze the room before bedtime and then leave it off for the night. Not sure if this is the norm or not, but it was for room 301.

In addition to free breakfast and internet, the hotel has plenty of ice machines and two guest laundries if that is necessary for you.

The hotel is located just off of I-75 and is about 15 minutes from the airport. There is a Buffalo Wild Wings, a Five Guys Burgers, a Starbucks and a couple of other small restaurants within walking distance across the street. There is also a Target and Home Depot right across the street.

At the end of the day we certainly will stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: Room 301 is located at the end of the hallway. It is a standard King room but does not have a batht...
