Needed to cancel due to exposure to COVID. The hotel would not refund my pre-payment. Management cares more about money than the health and safety of patrons. I was surprised as I expected a higher level from this chain.

Room was clean. Pillows nice. Good TV channels. Coverlet on bed was worn out. We had to get dressed and go to front desk to COVID protocols not enforced at breakfast. I will not stay here again. If their own COVID protocols were not followed who is to say the room was "cleaned" properly. Hotel parking was free but needs improvement for safety. People were shooting off fireworks in the parking lot next to the cars. It was not addressed by the hotel. Very noisy.

On two separate occasions this hotel has called last minute (check in is at 3 they called at 4) to cancel our reservation because of a “computer glitch in their system” there all of a sudden were no longer any rooms available. BOTH times we got the exact same story, which leads me to believe they frequently do this. We were over 2 hours from home for a softball tournament for the weekend, they also canceled on 2 other families from our team alone. I was extremely upset the first time this happened, but shame on me for thinking it couldn’t happen again. I was wrong. It will not happen a third time.

Thank you for providing feedback about your experience. I understand your frustration and sincerely apologize for all inconvenience posed to you. It is very unfortunate that this happened to you on two separate occasions. We work tirelessly at the Hotel to avoid situations like this but sometimes they do still occur. Overbookings happen at most Hotels. The first reservation was booked via a third party booking site that never confirmed your reservation with our Hotel. We did not cancel the reservation, the reservation was never confirmed on our end. This was the result of a third party booking discrepancy and beyond our immediate control as we had no direct access to your reservation. Front Desk Agents did do everything within their power to accommodate you by arranging for you to stay at an alternate property. Thank you for giving us a second chance by booking to stay with us again. The most recent situation is more unfortunate as it is the result of an accidental overbooking at our property. To be fair, we did not cancel your reservation without providing alternate accommodations for you. What we did do, is relocate you to a comparable Hotel, set up the reservation for you and pay for that stay. We called to notify you as soon as we confirmed it was happening. I do understand and share your frustration. I sincerely and genuinely apologize for all inconvenience and deeply regret the negative impact this has had on you. Thank you for booking at Holiday Inn Express Bartow. We will work much harder to avoid situations like this in the future.

They charged us $20 more than it said online, the clerk was rude and wouldn't let me us the restroom when checking in. He said they were for guests only. Huh??? They put us across the hall from a huge group of young people - there were only 7 cars in the lost so they were NOT busy! They 20's came and went all night long keeping us awake. The next morning we found people sleeping on the floor in the hall and it smelled like a sewer. The girl at the desk apologized but said it wasn't her fault since she didn't work at night. We grabbed our to-go breakfast bags and discovered the oatmeal was already open and spilled all over the bag. This place is an abomination and I would let my worst enemy stay there! It is obviously not ran professionally since they let their friend sleep in the hallways. All amenities were shut down because they were too lazy to clean. We went across the street to the Hampton Inn the next day and have been here every since.

The best Holiday Inn Express facility we’ve ever stayed in! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was perfect—clean, comfortable beds, spacious accommodations, clean well lit bathroom, plenty of clean towels, great housekeeping service, wonderful breakfast. Would definitely recommend this place!
