Bradenton, Florida6 contributions3 helpful votes
This review is 100% based on the breakfast options. I have stayed at four other Holiday Inn Express’ during the pandemic and this is unquestionably the most pathetic breakfast offering. You receive one sugar-filled per-packaged pastry, one sugar-filled cup of yogurt, and one small cup of orange juice (from concentrate with added sugar of course!). The other Holiday Day Inn Express’ were still offering a full breakfast buffet but the guests stood behind a plexiglass buffet and told an employee what items they’d like. This allowed guests to still receive a 100% hot breakfast - not this pre-packaged garbage we received. Florida has resumed indoor dining at 100% capacity, including buffets, yet a breakfast buffet at a hotel where they could require guests eat in their rooms is too dangerous? At this point it is painfully obvious you are just using the pandemic as an excuse to cut costs.

I will come back again, hoping to travel out this May.. I booked on line and it saved $$$ wish my the hotels would offer better prices directly but till they do. I’ll keep booing on line. Good good value

When we booked this hotel we were told heated pool and the breakfast buffet was included. NO heated pool, and no breakfast buffet. Plus guess what? No room service unless you ask. Which we weren’t told

We are IHG members with Platinum Elite status and this hotel should not be sanctioned by IHG in any way shape or form. We were supposed to have a 2-night stay but left as soon as possible after the first night (would have left the night before had we not arrived late at night, exhausted). This hotel is filthy--hair and urine in the bathroom, floors unvacuumed, stained and dirty tile, doors dirty and chipped. The room down the hall had garbage outside the door when we arrived, which was still there when we left. No one vacuums the hallways or seems to care about anything. And they advertise it as "newly renovated"--a joke. When we complained to the front desk, they said we'd have to speak with a manager the next day; when we tried to do so, we were told the manager wasn't in. Have now tried twice to call and speak to said manager--no one answers the phone. This property is a disgusting disgrace and IHG should be ashamed.

Hi cmco, Thank you for choosing IHG Hotels & Resorts during your visit to Fort Myers! We’re the first choice of travelers who need a simple, engaging place to rest, and what transpired during your stay isn't what we promised. I'm sorry to hear your discomfort due to the poor maintenance of the room and bathroom. It's with regret to know that the level of service received in handling this was a setback. This isn't the experience you've come to expect from us. I brought this up to our local management's attention. Trust that the necessary inspections and repairs will be discussed with the team, so better service will be sorted out. I also sent you a private email discussing this further. We appreciate you as one of our IHG Rewards Platinum Elite members. I hope you'll give us another chance to show that the unpleasant part of your stay was an exception! All the best, Jomar M. Case Manager IHGService

The bathroom was not cleaned. Other than that the room was fine. When checking out I was refused an invoice for my stay. Checking later, I was charged an additional 64 dollars. I have spent 4 hours on the phone this week waiting to get through to someone in customer service, management anyone. I just sit here and keep selecting guest services or sales from the useless phone tree. I've left several messages for someone to call back, no luck. I'll just sit here all day hitting 3, but in the end I'll have to dispute the charge with my credit card company. I won't hold it against the rest of the Holiday Inn Express chain or IHG, they're normally great. I'd recommend skipping this one at the forum.
