I stayed at this hotel for 1 night as I was passing on a road trip. The hotel was nice I paid £85 which is good value for gulf shore because it is expensive for accommodation. The hotel is down the Main Street to the beach around 2 miles. The room was dark but ain't most of these chains the... More

We stayed 1 night and the bed was comfortable and the staff was very helpful. We wanted to be near the beach and it is. Breakfast was decent. It is a little overpriced. the internet service was intermittent so we were unable to stay logged on to get email and other sites.

The breakfast was decent. The waffle machine is STILL not working. The staff was friendly. The hotel was a mile from the beach. That's the only 3... More

This hotel is Nice and Convenient. Close enough to the action but far enough away to be quiet. Rooms are nice and clean. We really like this hotel for a quick stay over at a clean and safe place. Great place to stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August. The location is perfectly fine, but the hotel disappointed in comparison to our usual experience with Holiday Inns. The hotel was somewhat tired, the Business Center unreliable and the usual basic amenity of having hot water available to make yourself drinks from the breakfast area wasn't present, or indeed the treat...

This hotel is conveniently located just a few miles from the beach. It is far enough away not to be affected by the night life noise and congestion, yet just a quick car ride or walk to the public beach. Rooms are fresh and immaculately clean as is the rest of the hotel. The pool is a bit small, but... More

After a 17 hour drive this hotel was a rest haven for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat. They also provided us with a crib for our daughter that had a cute little pique sheet and blanket in pink/white, nice unexpected touch. The beds were comfy with spacious rooms with a fridge, microwave... More

Spent two night at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was clean, staff efficient and courteous. Rooms were of a decent size and quiet. Plenty of pillows. Beds were not that comfortable, seemed to be worn and probably needs replacing. Loved the shower head. Good power and plenty of hot water. The lighting in the bathroom was horrible. HORRIBLE to...
