Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

Cheery staff.
Typical free continental breakfast selections, depleted of any sort of protein by the time I got there. Paper thin walls did nothing to block the shouting of the overly tired kids and loud adults coming back from a day of thrill-seeking. Rooms were clean, towels were thin. There is a pool. There is a health club.
Good value, but I would pack earplugs were I to stay here again.

Reviewed 4 April 2013

Stayed here for two nights and had a pleasant time. The staff was helpful from the start. Our TV stopped working for whatever reason, and called the front desk to resolve the problem. We went to lunch for less than an hour and when we came back the room had been cleaned and the TV was fixed! Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Only complaint was the minor noise throughout the hotel, but it didn't bother us much.

Well the service was nice it was only 5 minuets to check in but the pool was warmer than the hot tub the breakfast was dissapointing there was no bacon,sausage but the rooms were nice and if you buy a mattress at a store like the one at the hotel you get a discount also. You could hear the elevator ding all the way from your room. But all and all it was nice I would stay here again

The room and hotel location are great (so close to USF and the MOSI), however, the breakfast was sub par. Maybe we are just used to the Holiday Inn Express, but it was not what I would expect. The room was clean and comfortable.
