Stayed here one night on a Florida vacation. We booked the location for the amenities (pool and such) but unfortunately the Florida afternoon thunderstorms had other plans. We did enjoy them briefly before the lightning started. That's Florida for ya, I guess! The stay was good. The only reason I can't give 5 stars was because of our room. We were fortunate enough to check in early (2pm instead of 4pm), which was nice, but when we entered our room we almost passed out from the intense bleach smell. But it wasn't just bleach. It was like bleach mixed with something foul. We had to prop the door of our room open with a suitcase for a few hours to air out the room. We almost asked for a different room but decided it was getting better with the door open so we pushed through it. We had also just stayed at another Holiday Inn Express in a different part of town a few nights earlier and felt this room was much smaller than that one was. Lastly, the TV and remote were somewhat frustrating. The remote in room 519 needs to be replaced as the buttons were not working very well and there didn't appear to be any TV guide on the screen. We had to click through each channel until we saw something we wanted to watch. Petty complaint, I know, but maybe something can be done to improve the guest experience when using the TV in the room. I will say we were very pleased with the three pools and access to activities in the Calypso Cay area (which a one day pass is included for each room) and the large breakfast buffet. My kids really liked the Mickey Mouse waffle iron. We hope we can enjoy this location again on a better weather day in the future!

We stayed seven nights in adjoining rooms with our daughter and her family. The entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay the perfect experience. We couldn’t have asked for a better time! We would stay there again in a heartbeat! I hope we get the chance to do just that.
