We used this hotel due to its convenient location near the Florida Keys and our faith in the IHG brand. Arriving late at night after flight delays we could not believe the poor state of the room we walked into. The whole building smells of smoke and mould. The carpets are filthy and need replacing. The rooms are filthy - walking on the carpet with socks on for 5 minutes made them brown. Multiple light globes in the room were not working and the iron had a missing cover which meant the water tank emptied all over your clothes. The complex looks badly run down and in desperate need of a renovation. We could not depart quickly enough. It is surprising to me that IHG allows a hotel of this standard to be advertised under their brand.

As the other reviews mention this is a hotel to avoid. Very very dated by HIE standards. No breakfast buffet open as expected with HIE, grab and go only. Housekeeping is not daily and only by request of which they don’t state when checking in so you have no way to know this. The room was dirty and in need of a very deep cleaning (carpet, blinds). As a spire member I expect far more from the HIE brand, this hotel severely falls short of a one star experience. Not at all recommended.

Hi Getmarshall, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent hotel experience. We do our best to provide top-notch service and accommodation. I'm sorry for the reduced housekeeping service and breakfast items. In response to the COVID-19 situation, we have put in place modified procedures and reduced services to promote the safety of our guests and employees. I have shared your comments with the hotel management for their review. I am confident they will take steps to improve the service and amenities we provide. As our valued IHG Rewards Spire Elite member, we would love the opportunity to provide a better and memorable hotel experience. Warm regards, Zel N. Case Manager IHGService

First, the hotel is old and dated and needs a complete makeover. That is not, however, serious enough to warrant a low rating of the hotel. The test of an excellent hotel, however, is whether the staff MEETS your needs and EXCEEDS your expectations. I'll explain. I am an IHG Rewards Gold member and asked for a one-hour late checkout. Stephanie, who was dressed in sweats with no I.D. whatsoever and sitting on chairs in the lobby told me that she would only give me until 11:30. I protested and then she said "We only give late checkouts if they are available and since none are available, the latest I can give you is 11:30 a.m. If you stay in the room until 12:00 noon, I will charge you for an additional day!" She told me that she didn't want to "inconvenience" the housekeeping staff. Inconvenience the housekeeping staff?! What about the customers!? Stephanie got annoyed because I was irritated, but the best way to handle an irritated customer is to deescalate the situation, not escalate the situation by becoming vengeful. Stephanie doesn't realize or doesn't want to face reality that there is a Marriott across from the Holiday Inn Express and I will be staying there next time. Stephanie thinks that by being mean and vengeful she wins. But in fact, she "wins the battle but loses the war." Thankfully capitalism rewards companies that meets people's needs and punishes those that don't. I wrote a complaint e-mail to a Mr. Lima but got no response. What does that tell you?!

The Holiday Inn Express in Florida City has been on my itinerary many times. Years ago I was happy to see the renovation and posted several positive reviews. However times change and during this visit it was mediocre at best. COVID-19 does not make organising a hotel easier but at least the personnel can do an additional step to make the difference. Relatively uninterested and without care the reception is manned by different employees. Service is inconsistent and there seems to be a genuine disinterest in helping the guests. Rooms are basic and up to par with HIE standards. Because of COVID-19 no breakfast is served yet, which was quite interesting seen the state policy, so you have to grab a bag in the morning. This hotel serves the absolute basic needs of having a bed and a decent room but do not expect any additional frills. It does serve its purpose if you are in the area.

I had our group stay here. Tried phoning before arrival with some questions about dietary issues with the breakfast (FYI they cannot accommodate), never heard back. My group arrived and had major issues checking in. One person was overcharged. I have been in contact with corporate and even they have told me the management won’t return their calls either. We are currently going to try and dispute the charges through our credit card.
