We recently stayed one night at this Holiday Inn Express. We really loved the different layout of the hotel, which was not your "typical" Holiday Inn Express layout. It has only 2 floors and the hallways branch off in several directions. The top floor is open to the lobby and has a very nice open staircase. We had requested in... More

Overall good experience, location is isolated near the airport, very quiet. Kaitlyn at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. It is about 5 minutes from downtown which is extremely small. Breakfast is below average.

We stayed at this new Holiday Inn Express, very clean, close to the airport and coastal highway. We were able to take day trips up the highway and venture off onto smaller roads, enjoying the scenery and the ocean views.

This has one of the best breakfasts I have had at a hotel of this class. The place is a but noisy because it is popular with families. The internet is horrible and practically unusable. To start off, you have to enter a code every 24 hours which is annoying. I was getting about 1 MB/s down and could not... More

Really nice facility, everything was clean, well managed, nice breakfast, pool...updated rooms. The only bummer was that we had hoped for 2 beds, but they only had a king available, and no roll-away. But it was comfy!
