Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Okeechobee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2012

stopped here in September for 4 nights on our way from the everglades back to orlando. Rooms were as you expect from a holiday inn - clean, coffee maker and toiletries provided.

very impressed with the coffee and freshly baked cookies in the foyer - the smell wafted around and we found we couldn't resist.

Found out our mobiles wouldn't work in US and needed to contact the UK. The receptionist, JOSH, was brilliant - he googled the company we needed, obtained their email address and sent them a message. The next day he contacted us with the reply - This saved us $25 dollars for 5 minutes on a phone call. Nothing was too much trouble for Josh who even supplied us with a discount card for a nearby 'cowboy bar' with great food.

Only slight downside was the size of the pool - not big enough to have a swim in, although the tiny frogs (after a downpour) thought so!!

We don't expect to be in the area again but if we were we would definately use this hotel.

I stay here for business when working in the area. Jeanne and all the front desk staff are excellent, as is all the staff I have come in contact with. I have been staying there for four years and will continue to go back.

Stayed here before for business in Okeechobee and enjoyed it each time. The place appears very new. Rooms are comfortable and clean. This last stay, they gave me room with a Sleep Number bed which I had never slept on before. It was fun to try the different settings before I found the one I liked.

Jeannie was the front desk clerk when I checked in at 10:00 pm and she had everything ready upon my arrival. She was very helpful. Breakfast was the typical Holiday Inn setup with hot eggs, sausage and such plus they had a pancake machine. More importantly, they had those awesome cinnamon rolls, which I love.

All in all, a very nice place to stay for business or pleasure.

Breakfast is amazing! Automatic pancake maker! They could honor Internet price of AAA discount so a little pricey. But stayed an extra night even with other options in the area. Staff is very helpful & brought my pillow to front desk that I left behind.

I got a room for my relatives who came to stay from Illinois. They were very happy with the staff and Jeff helped us with how to best see Lake Okeechobee. There is a nice pool and hot tub along with the nice Holiday Inn Breakfast.

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip. The Holiday Inn Express featured friendly staff, a nice continental breakfast, comfortable bed and nice room. Price was good too, so the value was definitely there. I would stay here again.
