Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tampa Fairgrounds

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very nice personnel."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Considering the covid 19 pandamic, your hotel was very cleaning once in one can see the room totally cleaned and smelled fresh. I appreciated much seeing hand sanitizer at all elevators. However, breakfast had a lot to be desired. It was limited. I asked for the cheese omelet. It was rubbery and cold and served with no toast. The coffee was stale and warm, not hot. This was very early morning approximately 7:45 AM. We left and went to for breakfast elsewhere. Other than that, I found it safe, cleaned and great air conditioning.
