THE BATHROOM WAS IN VERY BAD SHAPE WITH A DOOR THAT DIDN'T OPEN, MILDEW, BROKEN TILES, AND WALLPAPPER FALLING OFF

Poor service dirty room my second day did not even refresh towels dirt accumulated on corners filthy carpeted

Las alfombras estan muy sucias me dieron una toalla con rotos no tiene caja fuerte

Even though the front desk staff was welcoming and friendly, the hotel itself was in bad shape. The first thing we found in our room was that the corridor light was out and then my daughter saw a cockroach that we have to kill. Second, the carpet was dusty and dirty and the bathroom had mold on the ceiling because the air extractor wasn't working. Third, the tv furniture was old and bare, the tv was outdated, and the room's phone wasn't working. And, fourth, the hotel's corridors carpet was nasty, and there were not pool towels at all times..

Is ok but I was expecting more. When arrive they give us a room with smoking smell. I had to go to the front desk to ask for another room. The other was fine.

I was pleased with the room and the comfort. I slept well and breakfast was good. My wife didn’t like our first room because it had an Oder she didn’t like. I didn’t notice it. She still insisted on changing rooms. It was a good stay.

It was super clean and the beds were comfortable. The only downside was there was only 1 elevator and we were on the 4th floor.

A really good hotel that has everything going for it including location and price, but I wanted to mention Billi Roswell totally apart. Her friendliness and welcoming attitude made our visit feel special. OK, she adored our granddaughter too and that helped, but she was a wealth of local information and I would ask her to work at my hotel in Kissimmee in a heartbeat. Great buffet breakfast, open and airy, takeout sites right there. We have a new Tampa hotel!

no signs for hotel was not sure we were at right place, semi trucks over night parking in lot next to pool area that were very loud and alot of exhaust fumes. Not great tv service in room.

This is the first time I have ever posted a review on a hotel stay and I have stayed in several. I was so disappointed in this hotel room, I just had to write a review. The whole reason for my husband and I to get a place was because I was having surgery at 6 am and did not live near the hospital. I had to shower and sleep in clean pj's and bed sheets. I don't cheap out on hotels when we reserve so this wasn't a cheap stay. If there is a place for me to add photos, I took some and will. The room did not look like it was vacuumed. The carpet have giant stains. The cushions on the sofa and big open tears in them. We went to the desk and told the lady that checked us in but her concern only seemed to express she would let someone know so they could take care of it in the future. Didn't bother to offer another room and I'm pretty sure the place wasn't fully booked. Basically, it was just an uncomfortably dirty feeling stay. I checked many places but for what ever reason, this place got some of the top reviews/stars.

Under renovation. Do not choose room next to the pool as people sit and talk all night. Otherwise nice clean hotel.

Staff- AWESOME- super friendly. Hotel Is in renovations stage so it’s kind of a mess Right now. When THAT much is going on- Rooms should have been severely discounted since honestly it’s less than guest ready. The beds are super comfy but the air in the room or the room itself was DAMP. Like feel it on the sheets and your skin damp. I love HI Express hotels Usually but I’d not go back here I’m afraid.
