    Very good

    I really appreciated the staff who were very helpful. I also liked that they had shuttles to Seaworld and the Zoo. This saved me the hassle of parking and it saved me a little bit of money as well. The pool was nice and do was the hot tub. Also, they had free breakfast, this was really helpful with 3 children during our stay!

    We did have ants in our bathroom. Also they gave us a very small room for a party of five. Also I ended up paying 600 dollars when the website quoted 447.00. But after all the tax were added I still ended up paying more. This should be added in so that there at no surprises.

    Exceptional

    The staff were really helpful and nice. The quality of the room was great. There was free breakfast, coffee, internet and shuttles to/from the airport and the zoo which was all really helpful and nice. The location is convenient because it is walking distance from the Old Town. I would stay there again definitely.

    As another reviewer stated, Ryan was all a person could ask for in a staff position, very helpful and accommodating, they upgraded to a suite at no charge, room was very clean and too spacious for 1 person! I wish I had more time there to enjoy the facilities!

    A little bit of road noise, other than that great!

    Good

    Only reason it's rated 5 is because of the constant traffic noise throughout the night and for that reason I couldn't recommend it.

    The staff there are lovely. We had booked for three people, but our room was a double bed and a rollaway bed squeezed into the corner, so they upgraded us to a room with two doubles no charge. Their shuttle service is great, we were running late to catch our tram into town one night and Ryan drove us there just in time! Its not right in the centre, but its not too far away, and Old Town is within walking distance, which is a great spot for a bite to eat and a few drinks. Free internet, free parking, and free breakfast is also a major plus! I'd stay here again!

    Superb

    Room was very quiet eventhough it was right next to airport and freeway, but downtown and beaches were fast and easily to reach by car . Also it was clean and comfortable, and there were no problems with the parking because of an own parking lot. Breakfast was standard continental breakfast and nothing to complain about.

    The staff was wonderful, from the maintenance man who found money I had dropped, the driver who picked me up at the car rental, and every other staff member I came in contact with. I would definitely go back to this HI Express again.

    Upon entering the room 9:00 pm Saturday, September 15th it was about 100 degrees. Room right off an Inter-State Highway. Tough to sleep with constant noise; and I do not believe the hotel was sold out. Lastly, there was a semi round shower curtain which did not sit low enough to keep water from running on to the bath floor. What made it worse was someone purposely pointed the shower head directed at the shower curtain. The result? I turned on the shower, walked away for a few seconds to allow the water to warm --- unbeknownst to me in those few seconds was water had run on to the floor. No big deal to me as I have slept on the ground while serving out country. Annoying because of two things: Semi round shower curtains with regular length shower curtains makes nearly a gurantee of happening again. Most especially if the shower head is not pointed towards the center of the showering area. Look in to this matter at your earliest convenience. Thanks.

    It was a nice room, clean carpet (which is extremely important) not a terrible price, and the staff was really nice.

    Can't think of anything I did not like.
