I've stayed here on business a few times and it's OK. The buffet breakfast is good, the rooms are nice and big, decent bathrooms and generally acceptable. Service is OK. Location is nice and central. This is good for business but not for families I suggest. For business I'd suggest using Novotel instead, it's generally better.

You don't expect 5* if you are booking the Holiday Inn in Khobar and it really delivers! It is about as good as a holiday Inn anywhere else; staff are friendly, rooms are almost clean, good gym. It is fine if you know what to expect, and if you're booking a small business-hotel in Khobar, I suspect you know what... More

Good gym facilities and good sized bedrooms with free wifi or LAN network access. The location is relatively far from the sea or shopping, so you will need to use a car to get... More

The hotel is ok. Reception staff is friendly and check-in is fast. The rooms are comfortable and fairly presented. The A/C is noisy. Thanks God it was winter so I could turn it off.
