Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tampa Fairgrounds

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent Service and Rooms"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The rooms were comfy, shuttle was on time and the staff was very attentive to our needs. Please give my appreciation to Lauren and Haley at the front desk. It was hectic for a minute with the rooming list at check-in. They were both very patient with me and the ladies of our group. We look forward to staying at your hotel again in the future. Thank you!

"Lovely Property. Great Breakfast!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a very nice stay at Holiday Inn Express Fairgrounds. It was positive start to finish because of the folks who work there! Cassandra make booking details a snap and when she was out of town, desk staff Madelaine handed me right over to the GM! Theresa got me what I needed in a hurry to make my bookkeeper happy. When we arrived, Kamai're got us checked in very hospitably. With predominantly 14 year olds, it took a few moments to settle in but by 10 there was quiet in the halls. Breakfast was seriously a feast I don't think there was anything possible left off the buffet and the dining room ladies kept up with our 50+ high schoolers and never lost their smiles. We will absolutely be back. Two caveats that are not the fault of the hotel but now that we know, will deal better next time. Soundproofing leaves a little to be desired. Wonderful time many thanks!
