My wife and I have been Detroit Tigers fans all of our lives, so we attend spring training every year, and have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express ever since it opened a few years ago. The prior location at exit 32 off I-4 had become an abomination, but this new location at exit 33 was a huge improvement. The staff are always friendly, and Monique is a real gem; she keeps things running smoothly, helps out in areas that need attention (including the breakfast area when it gets really crowded). Although we only stay there generally in march for a few days every year, Monique still remembers me from prior bookings. Hotel is backed up to a safe neighborhood, so cars are safe and secure; Cracker Barrel restaurant very close if need a quick home-cooked type meal. Pool is refreshing and nicely heated in a semi-open aired environment; frosted windows for a touch of privacy. Beds comfy, good tv channel selection, a/c works fine. Only downside is the typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast; not keen on the selections, but that is dictated from corporate, so not fault of hotel. I would like to see more fruit, though, other than just bananas, and French toast would be a real bonus. Not a fan of that s-o-s stuff, or the flavorless scrambled egg or fried egg looking concoction; the sweet rolls, cereal, yogurt options all good though. Coffee available free even late at night, and the home-made cookies always a treat every day. I plan to be there again next spring.
