Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Tampa-Rocky Point Island

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Moving cross country - spending a few days mostly traveling - arriving in Florida on the 4th of July at Rock Point was spectacular! We loved the room - the incredibly comfortable beds - the fireworks across the Bay - just being in a beautiful and comfortable place was just heaven for us! If I have family come over who can't stay with me then I am putting there - they will love it! If I could live there - I would!!

The hotel is clean and nice, however, I have had 2 experiences where housekeeping just walked into my room, without warning, and they were not appoligetic at all. In fact she was not very pleasant and the housekeeping manager didn't seem to care. I was partially undressed and what is so frustrating is that it was on my reservation exactly what time I would be checking out. Charles was wonderful during check in.

No issues at all and decent location would stay there again

Clean and quiet even though the room overlooked the freeway. We just turned on the room fan and couldn't hear a thing.

We have used this hotel many times and are always very satisfied, never a problem. The only thing that sometimes bothers me is the breakfast is cold

I'm a fan of Holiday Inn Express properties so I was very surprised that this hotel was such a disappointment. The staff was nice but there was a lot of inter-staff chatting when so much needed attention. Waste cans near the lobby were full every time I passed them and cigarette butts littered the parking lot. Everything in my room was damp including bedding and carpet which probably resulted from the poorly maintained HVAC unit. The cleaning staff left a dirty coffee pot with coffee in it and no wash cloths. The room had a view of the ocean which was obscured by leaking thermopane windows. The noise from the floor above was constant so... no sleep. I had early flights on both ends of the trip so the noise was a problem. I'll stay next door at the Westin next time.

Our stay here was quite nice from accommodations to amenities. Breakfast was great! Staff is pleasant and courteous. All in all we had a wonderful time with only one suggestion. We were out early and returned around 4pm. Our room had not been cleaned and we had to leave until housekeeping came. They said they were busy doing empty rooms. Can understand but perhaps the more prudent way is to accommodate first the guests already there.

Everything was good to excellant except there is no bar or resturant although there is one within walking distance. Anything else you have to drive. The views of the bay are worth the driving inconvience.

We have stayed at three star hotel's before and our room was a two star room. The carpet was stained and dirty and the room had an odd odor. This hotel should not be represented as a three star hotel.

Spent a week in town on business. This hotel was conveniently located to the airport and major points.

Week-long stay while in town attending training. Comfortable room allowed me to get a good nights rest and be prepared for the next day's class. Great view!

Room was average but will certainly be wonderful once the renovation is complete. We will be staying at this hotel the next time we are in town just to see progress.

Enjoyable experience. This hotel is in a great location, close to the Bay and within walking distance to beach. Complementary breakfast was one of the best that I have had on my many trips to Tampa. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

The staff here made the difference for us we had dates booked but due to an unfortunate situation we came to the hotel one night early and they treated us great I cannot say more. Location was great to get to the beaches of clearwater, parks, football stadium, shopping, and for me across the street from Hogan's Beach! Next time in Florida we will stay here again.

Very nice room my wife and i had a great time in tampa the stay at hotel was great good morning breackfast was really nice cleaning of room was really nice as well Thanks zimmerers

We got a great deal for the room, so it is hard to complain too much. The breakfast was ok, but tasted pretty good. The bathroom needed work on cleanliness. There was a lot of mildew buildup around the tub and toilet. The television was set for "Store Demo" mode, so we kept getting pop-ups about the various features of the television while we were trying to watch tv. It was quite annoying. We are pretty easy to please, so I was surprised that we were not happier with the hotel overall. The housekeeping staff were all very nice and courteous, but a few of the front desk people were not quite as courteous. For a cheap hotel close to a public beach, this will do, but I probably won't stay here again.

Great hotel with all the needs...comfort, value, location, plus breakfast. I'll stay there again.

The positives were that the front desk staff were basically friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffett was adequate but not replenished quickly enough. The negatives were the rooms and property in general...old and dated. There are no microwaves or refigerators in the rooms and none were available. I never had hot water, mattress was hard and lumpy and a continual slow leak around base of the toilet meant you had to spread towels on the floor or step on a wet floor. Also, it was difficult to access wireless when in the hotel. My room was at the end of the floor and quiet so I chose not to move. I visit family in Tampa several times a year and would not stay at this property again.

It was very nice and right for the money. It was convenient and easy access to attractions. The breakfast was nice but the beds were a little hard.

Great hotel that is near everything!! It can't get no better than that..Staff was amazing and very helpful and the breakfast was great!! I'd recommend this place to everyone :)
