Holiday Inn Express Tampa - Rocky Point Island

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2013

The main problem here was the tv in the next room that might as well have been in my room. The hotel is right on the bay, but the view is pretty much of the highway across it. The employee who checked me in and answered a question later was pretty indifferent - neither friendly or unfriendly and happy for me to wait at the front desk while she finished texting.

On the plus side, the room was clean, the bed standard issue, and the air conditioning worked.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled on business

very close to the airport but not walking distance this Holiday Inn is nicely on the water front of tampa bay.
Not the most fancy or updated place I have stayed at but good value for money and nice location.

Great hotel at great rate. Staff at desk were all very welcoming and friendly. Girl working nights was the best....asked for extra towels and she said she'd bring them up to our room so we didn't have to wait in the lobby for them. Check in & out was a breeze. Pool very nice, although we didn't use since we were at the beach most of the time. Breakfast every morning was fantastic....the best cinnamon rolls ever...and they even have a sign saying so, and it's really accurate! Besides the cinnamon rolls they have hard boiled eggs...scrambled or omelettes, bacon or sausage, cereal, toast, biscuits, bagels, coffee, juices, milk (and skim thankfully for those who don't like whole), and a great pancake maker machine! You just press a button and the machine does the rest....I need one of those in my house! Room was very clean, beds nice & comfy, bathroom very nice size. Shower was a little slow to drain, but that's about the only complaint I can think of. A/C worked wonderfully, very cold! 24 hour fitness room that was small, 3 machines, but very nice and great to have! Surrounding area was beautiful, right on the water so you're looking directly at Tampa Bay, right on the causeway. Easy access into Tampa or Clearwater. Bahama Breeze restaurant directly next door, which was very convenient. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area and would for sure stay there again if ever back in the area.

We were escaping the kids (aged 22 and 26) who were occupying a villa in Disney area and my partner and I were looking for a romantic night away. Tried the Don Cesar on St Petes beach but it was full and we were struggling. The chips were down mid afternoon and a walk of shame back to the villa looked likely. That is until we spotted the Holiday Inn Express and Bahama Breeze winking at us across the I60 and Rocky Point Island.
The hotel room was a delight for a chain clean big with ample goodies coffee machine, a nice view over the bay, comfy bed and at a drop in rate on a saturday night of $89 including breakfast, I was very happy.

We stayed one night in this hotel. It is in the middle of some large office complexes and a high end condos so it is quiet. The view is pretty as it sits on the edge of the bay. There are some walking paths in the area.There is only one restaurant next door and it is a Bahama Breeze. We saw one other place to eat at but it was an outdoor bar and it was not clear to me if they had any food other than alcohol. The hotel also has a nice pool. If you need a place to stay when going or coming from the airport it is the best as it is literally 1 mile to the airport. The hotel also provides a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. I would use this hotel again if I were flying out of Tampa.

We wanted a one night stay at Tampa airport, as we were flying in from the UK and meeting friends who were flying in from New York the following morning. We looked for a reasonably priced hotel with the following; a free shuttle bus, free breakfast and a good restaurant within easy walking distance of the hotel. This hotel matched all our criteria so we booked it. The hotel exceeded all our expectations. The shuttle bus staff were extremely efficient, pleasant and helpful. The hotel staff were very welcoming and professional. The restaurant next door was very good (Bahamas Breeze) and was a two minute walk away. The room was large, spotless, and very quiet. The breakfast was very good; lots to choose from and plentiful; only a handful of people eating so there was no crush; free newspapers - perfect.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: We had a car park facing room but you could request a bay front room if you were staying fr longer t...
