I Loved the location, near the interstate and near the Trop for me great location - rooms were clean the property looked clean next to Cracker Barrel so I preferred the CB breakfast to the holiday inn breakfast - staff was great - wifi could be better but I did not use it that much - plus it's free wifi so what do you expect. I ran into the manger - Dave something - nice guy oh and I got my IHG rewards points - I like it when it was called priority club

Room was clean but had too much air freshener used. AC was noisy and very humid. Walls are paper thin, you can hear everyone walking down the hall while in your room.
One slow elevator was also a drawback.

Free shuttle to Tropicana Stadium worked out well. They allowed us to check in a few hours early. Breakfast was good and plentiful.

We chose this hotel because they offered a shuttle service between the hotel and the Tropicana Stadium where the Tampa Bay Rays play their home games. The young lady at the front desk was friendly, but neglected to greet us as IHG Rewards members. She did not offer us a goodie bag or 300 points. At the time, we did not think much of it, and the following morning, we got our points from the next young lady we saw.
Both young women informed us that the shuttle service would be available every 30 minutes from 2-3 hours before the game, and again, after the game. We were NOT told that the shuttle would only make one trip to pick up everyone. Nor were we told the shuttle would not be there to pick us up after the hour-long O'Jays concert which immediately followed the game.
The drop-off/pick-up point was not a very safe place for two middle-aged people to stand around, and within minutes, two different fellows asked us for money. I called the hotel and was told, "I'll see what I can do." We walked back to the stadium, where police were directing traffic. We met a police officer, and as I told him of our predicament, my husband received a call on his cell phone. The desk clerk, Craig, informed my husband there was nothing he could do and we were on our own. Fortunately, Officer McGovern took pity on us and drove us back to the hotel in his cruiser.
Despite our jerseys, Craig did not immediately realize who we were, and greeted us as we walked through the lobby. My irate husband greeted him with a profanity, to which the boy, understandably, took great offense and told my husband he was not allowed to speak to him in that manner.
I understand not wanting your patrons to curse you. I also understand patrons expecting service can become irate when they do not receive the promised service.
No one was right by this point, and, being the only one who was calm, I went back to the lobby to try and soothe Craig's ruffled ego. Instead, he cursed and yelled at me, then stomped away and slammed a door behind him. Now, I was nearly as upset as my husband, though I did not curse the boy. I did tell him he was "a very rude little boy."
I returned to our room and tried to call customer service, but, for some reason, could not get through until I called from my cell phone. Hmm.
When I did get through, the woman with whom I spoke was very sympathetic. She gave me a case number and told me the manager of the hotel would call the following day. Of course, that never happened.
Things may have turned out differently, if everyone had kept their heads. As you have read, that not the case. My husband was already upset and Craig, the desk clerk, was not mentally or emotionally equipped to handle the situation.
The manager of this establishment has both my husband's phone number and mine. I welcome–though I do not expect–the call that I was promised to try and rectify this situation.

Room Tip: The neighborhood is not all that great and there is nothing around the hotel, except a Cracker Barre...

A great Location off the interstate exit.. but that's about it.. the Rooms are very nice and not over priced. Can't say anything about the restaurant or room service as I didn't try it.. Nice place to stay at if you are in dire need of a hotel.. but not for a vacation.. more like business or emergency I would have to say.

Room Tip: Across the interstate is a seedy kind of area.. However there is an awesome chinese restaurant calle...

If this had been my first experience with Holiday Inn Express it surely would be the last. During a 10 day road trip I stayed in mid-priced hotels like Holiday Inn Express and this was certainly the worst experience. Although the lobby is nice, my room was shabby, damp and sorely in need of updating. I could hear sounds from the adjoining rooms and from above. The AC cranked away noisily but couldn't combat the humidity in the room. Bed and linens were old and worn, and the water pressure in the shower low. Breakfast included burnt eggs and rotten bananas. Really? Needs new management.

My wife stayed the night because we went to the Palladium theater in downtown St. Pete. This hotel had everything. Real nice room, very comfortable bed, easy parking and right off the highway. It was very clean, the cleanest I've seen of all the hotels I've stayed in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good, the best I've had from any hotel stay. We definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: I don't give excellent ratings very often but this deserved it.

My daughter and I stayed in one of the king suites. Carpet and pool were a little shabby but other than that it was a great hotel. Clean, great location, front desk people were very nice and helpful. The suite had a kind of alcove with a desk and sofa bed so when my daughter, who goes to sleep much earlier than I do, turned in I was able to stay up without waking her by reading or working in the same room where she slept. You can't beat the location, it's central to everything in St Pete and right of 275 but I never heard any traffic at all. I'd definitely stay here again.
