Recent guest reviews

Had a last minute meeting and needed a meeting room. Nicole Logan and her staff were able to coordinate everything us in record time. They were professional, friendly, and we are grateful. Thank you! They can expect repeat business from us.

Booked this hotel for a short business trip, 2 nights, and I have to say I can't imagine who has been writing all these excellent reviews? The entire hotel has a musty smell, there were huge stains on the carpet in the hallway of my floor, and the mattress was horrible, bowed out on the edges, sunken in the middle. The rooms are a nice size but I am really beginning to question some of these TA reviews!

We stayed for a Thursday night visit and easily located this hotel near I75. Service was prompt and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast items were hot and tasty with ample choices in a very clean dining area complete with television.

Loved everything about this stay. Rooms are clean, staff is nice although many did not speak English. I specifically had a chance to chat with the kitchen lady Arlene. She was a load of laughs. She made my stay even more enjoyable since I was traveling alone. Not to mention, the continental breakfast was great, especially since it was inclusive with the room. All in all, it was a good stay. Definitely will return to this particular hotel.

We stay here every year for a business meeting and the price goes up every year. The hotel is very mid-range quality. The rooms are fair and clean enough to stay, but their crews don't get them as clean as they could. There was a crushed cracker in one elevator that was not cleaned up for the 3 days I was there. The breakfast is usual unhealthy choices. Only fruit available was bananas. if anyone has a metabolic issue like diabetes, the breakfast will not be for you. Will definitely be looking at other options next year as the value for this hotel is dropping quickly for me.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Everything was clean the staff was very friendly. We met Mario who was very friendly and willing to help with anything we needed he went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay.We will be coming back for sure.

Very Pleasant stay the young lady at the front desk geovanna was very helpful and nice, great with customer service she was quick with every body the check in went smooth. she deserve a raise I will definitely come back for another stay

Very courteous ,clean & reliable experience. The employees are very knowledgeable in regards to the area.. They always acknowledge the fact that I am an spire elite customer. I will most definitely recommend this hotel to friends, fellow associates and family

Thank you Thank you Mario for making our stay probably one of the best i have had. Whenever i needed something he was there in a hurry with such a helping hand and attitude. Everything was very clean from the hotel to the room itself. The entire staff was so wonderful it made it hard to leave. We will definitely make this our permanent home away from home.

I hold monthly meetings at this hotel, and have to say that everyone works so hard to take care of my group and I. They go above and beyond with their hospitality, flexibility if they can, and all of the staff is just genuinely friendly. Recently, we had a meeting that had folks coming in from all over Florida. Not only was the staff able to help get them all into a room, set up a special group rate last minute as the number of guests grew, but my attendees raved about the accommodations and the staff. The small boutique type atmosphere allows the staff to give each guest the attention they require. Other perks for this great hotel: it is pet friendly, right off I75, it's CLEAN, their breakfast buffet is quite generous, the rooms are a good size, the beds were comfortable, there are multiple restaurants within walking distance, a grocery store and gas station a short drive up the road, and is close to popular Ft. Myers attractions. I am not a beach person, so it may be a bit more of a drive than other hotels, but the pool is well cared for, and has a lift to help those with special mobility needs enjoy it as well. The only con about this hotel is parking. It can get a smidge crowded. However, I've never not been able to find a spot, and there is plenty of handicapped parking. For someone with special mobility needs myself, this was important. Please remember that SWFL is exceptionally busy and prices reflect this during snowbird season. They are quite comparable to other local hotels, and do offer discounts programs such as AAA, AARP, Military, etc.
