Having stayed in Holiday Inn Express facilities in the past I was expecting something a little scaled down. Not here! Lovely facility, redecorated beautiful rooms and a killer bathroom. The rate was a little higher than I have come to expect with a Holiday Inn but it was worth it. The free hot breakfast was excellent as well. If there... More

Stayed here one night during the holiday weekend. The hotel check-in staff was very friendly and lobby was very modern and nice. We just needed a place to lay our heads as we were boating with family members for both days (prior and after our hotel stay). The rooms were very clean and modern - which was a surprise in... More

We stayed at this hotel when we were going to swim with the manatees. The hotel was very clean; the breakfast was good; the pool was ok. However, there is nothing to do in the evening. Very low key town. Also, if you are going to swim with the manatees, make sure you go in the winter (Feb. or March).... More

First, front desk personel Chris was very nice. Second, kudos to the housekeepers as they did a good job cleaning the room! They are spotless! Third, if you are in the area to swim with the manatees like we did, they are conveniently located near River Ventures. About 2-5 mins depending on traffic. We did our manatee tour at 6... More

We stayed here on our recent trip to Florida with our 3 children aged 14, 12 and 9. We had a room with 2 bedrooms which was a great size and meant we all had our own space. The man on reception asked whether we'd come to swim with the manatees and when we said we had he asked who... More

A good hotel with comfort. The front desk personal were very helpful and friendly. Spacious room but a bit dark in brown colour and a bit insufficently soundproof. The breakfast was very poor. Cardistance to restarants. We Charlies house which is a very good fishrestaurant with resoable prices.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during a recent visit to relatives in the area. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was great, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. There was great variety and it was well stocked. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it... More
