The Holiday Inn Express Inverness was clean and homey. The hotel was quiet which allowed me to work and rest without interruption. Parking was easy and the staff was VERY friendly. I forgot to bring an essential item with me and it was provided to me by the front desk. I will stay here again if I'm back in the area.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 2nd floor all the way down the hall (farthest away from elevator). I was never dist...

Anna, thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are pleased to hear that you found our staff at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Inverness-Lecanto to be friendly and helpful. We try to think of everything where our guests are concerned: from toothbrushes to deodorant...we've got your covered! We are set back from the highway which provides for a very quiet, relaxing sleep experience. We hope you were able to partake in some of our wonderful, complimentary amenities such as our hot, delicious breakfast and our 24-hour fitness center. We look forward to seeing you upon your next visit to the area. Thank you again for telling others about our award-winning hotel!

All people were helpful, friendly & helpful. Housekeeping, breakfast person & front desk were great!!!
Centrally located with a number of good restaurants & shopping. It would have been nice to have fresh baked cookies (I do not need them) in the late afternoon.

There is a good reason that I always try to stay at Holiday Inn Express Hotels. They are simply first rate in nearly every area that one would want while traveling. The Holiday Inn Express Inverness is no exception. From the front desk check in staff, to the breakfast hostess and check-out staff, everything was perfect. The location is easily accessible, great parking, very nice pool and very clean, fresh rooms. You won't be disappointed.

Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and not small. We had two beds. And we had to leave the hotel very early (about 5.20a.m.) but we could have breakfast!!! The hotel has parking.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, rooms were exactly what I needed. Breakfast was very good compared to some I have had in the past. The exercise room was small and only had 3 pieces of equipment, but nobody else was in there when I used it. For my needs, this was exactly what I needed. Location and price were spot on.

Room Tip: room 312 is right next to the elevator. good for location bad for noise

Stayed in a larger room (maybe a suite?) with a huge rooom and bathroom. Room had a big bed and a couch too. Bathroom could comfortably accommodate two people getting ready, and you could have a party in the tub/shower there was so much room. There was a step over the enormous tub so if you have any sort of mobility concerns you may have trouble, although they do have hand hold/rails. Bed was very clean and comfortable with two pillows per side as noted in earlier reviews. We were just over the awning at the front, but I did not expect a view anyway.

Deathly quiet, even though we sat through a big thunderstorm I couldn't hear anything...to me that spoke to the quality of walls.

Service was fantastic and friendly and the breakfast was hot and more choices you have at your house. So glad I found this place by chance after planning on "just a place to stay" after a day hiking at rainbow springs.

Front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms were very clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. Thanks to the housekeeping staff! The breakfast area is nice and big with plenty of seating and even an extra room next door for overflow. It has many choices in food and drink, so everyone is able to find something they like. The breakfast attendant (I think her name was Bernice) worked tirelessly restocking the breakfast buffet and cleaning tables. She was still keeping the area clean and stocked even a few minutes past the "closing time" for us late risers. The cinnamon rolls are such a treat! High praise for Bernice! My biggest complaint was the fitness room. It had two treadmills and a stationary bike. They are right against a mirrored wall, so you are staring yourself in the face, and the TV is at the far end of the room, so you would have to turn your head sideways 90 degrees the whole workout in order to see the TV. But the biggest fault is the lack of outlets, so you have to choose either the TV or a fan (a very small fan up in the corner of the ceiling). Because I couldn't bear to run on the treadmill in silence while staring at myself in the mirror, I chose the TV. But without a fan, the very small room became so unbearably hot, I thought I would faint. Moreover, there is no water cooler as most hotels have in their fitness room. They do have a water fountain (bubbler), but no cups available, so you have to get off the treadmill and go bend over the fountain in the middle of your workout every time you need a sip. Overall, a well-maintained and friendly hotel for the price; just needs improvement in the fitness room. If you are not planning to work out, it's a great place!

Great location is you need access to the Veterans Expressway or Tampa Airport. Conveniences nearby like WaWa, Target, Walgreens, Chik-fil-a.
