I have stayed at many Holiday Inns and HIEs, and all have provided good value and accommodations, but this was by far the best. We had a spacious suite with the bedroom separated from the living space with a door. The hotel was clean and modern. The staff was one of the friendliest at any hotel we've ever stayed. Having a Publix next door was so convenient for picking up food and drinks. We used Lyft one night. We were picked up right in front of the hotel. There's a pier and beach across the street. We didn't get a chance to go because it was rainy, and we were actually there for a family event. My favorite part of the stay was the breakfast. The woman who took care of the breakfast area was so friendly and so conscientious. The breakfast was great. We even had real bacon one day! If you're coming to Cocoa Beach for a beach vacation or a cruise, you should stay here!

From the moment I called and spoke with Melissa I knew this was going to be a great stay. Melissa went above and beyond to help us after we had a disaster of a stay at another hotel (Wakulla Suites). And continued to be of great help during our 4 night stay. The entire staff was always so friendly and greeted me and my family no matter how many times we walked past them in a 5 minute period lol. It was great having 2 bedrooms for our family of 5. We wish it had a cook top but the fact that breakfast was provided was awesome! My kids loved the automatic pancake machine. They thought it was so cool. A good variety for any picky eater. Coffee available all day was a bonus for my Husband. Would've been nice to have a few more lounge chairs around the pool in the sun. The area is a little small. But the kids loved the pool under the shade. And we were on vacation for the beach anyway. There was a spill or something in the pool but it was taken care of right away. Very clean place. Extra bonus was the Publix right there. This hotel truly was a breath of fresh air where we can relax and get over our nightmare of a stay at our previous hotel.

Super friendly staff on duty. Check in was a breeze. Looking foward to breakfast. Hotel is super clean. Trip advisor says i need 200 words for my review. Your reading this so i can satisfy trip advisor. Not really sure what else i can type. Did i mention the hotel has a great friendly staff and the hotel is clean?

Holiday Inn Express usually provides a good value but not much to get excited about. Our two nights here, however, went above our expectations thanks to extremely helpful and friendly staff - especially at the front desk. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and appreciated. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was the usual but hot and timely and well stocked, the small pool was outdoors but under shelter from the hot sun so enjoyable. The location was convenient to the Space Coast and slightly away from the hustle and bustle traffic in the center of Cocoa Beach. We will stay here again.

We received an excellent service from Rosalinda (front desk). We had a problem with another hotel and she facilitated us with all the movement. Besides this her recommendations were great !!!! Thank you Rosalinda

We stayed here for two nights before departing on a cruise. The hotel was very clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was what I expected. The bathrooms could use a few touch-ups but nothing major. The pool area is great because it is covered with a side area with chairs in the sun. It was a great place to relax. Our boys played there for most of the afternoon. Melissa at the front desk was great. We talked to her for quite a while when checking in. She was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. There were lots of different options and everything was always replenished in a timely manner. The breakfast attendant, Joyce, was very nice and made sure to keep everyone aware that the food might be a little slower getting out one day because they were down to one oven. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would return here, if we needed accommodations in the area again.

Stayed one night with the 1 week of parking package for the cruise from Port Canaveral. Fourth floor suite with 6 adults, lots of room, but only one bathroom made for some creative shower scheduling. Front desk folks, housekeeping and breakfast servers were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good with plenty of choices and the coffee tasted great. The only gripe is the shuttle bus service to the cruise port that the hotel uses. I know it's a third-party service but the bus AC was broken and quite unbearable especially since after we were picked had to stop at another hotel and the guests were not ready to board, had to wait and was quite frustrating.

Went to Florida for the first time in April 2017 from Wisconsin, I Chose Holiday Inn Express due to my former employers discount for IHG group chains for personal travel. I liked being able to walk to the beach & pier and not have to drive and park. However anywhere else would require some sort of transportation however was not an issue for me. Wifi could be spotty at times, Breakfast, Pool & Whirlpool were good standards for me. Will come back if I return in the future.

Everyone was helpful and very nice. When we checked in, we asked about places to eat and things to do. The staff at the receptionist desk were informative, telling us the best places to eat and the things we should see while visiting. During the free breakfast, which was excellent, another couple said the same thing. Jill, that worked in the breakfast room, was so very nice. She was helpful and even allowed some guest that came in a few minutes after the time to close down the breakfast service to get some breakfast items before breaking down the line. She made sure everyone had everything they needed and was generally a sweet person, smiling and talking to everyone that came in. The rooms were clean and in good condition. The hotel was located so you can easily reach all the attractions. Wonderful stay.

Beautiful place to stay. We stayed only one night the night before our cruise and the people were so nice that worked there and the place was clean and quiet. They have a pool but we didn't use it. The free breakfast is great. Will stay here again.
