It's not a five start hotel but then it's not billed as one. Check in was fast and efficient and I cannot say enough about how friendly and helpful the desk clerk was. He was willing to go above and beyond to answer questions and point us to local attractions and restaurants that were worth going to. Don't expect a... More

Five star service during our weekend with the manatees. Room was clean, super super comfy beds. Varied breakfast started even a bit before 6 am for the early manatee swimmers and left out a little after 9.30 for after the swim. Also got a late checkout for a shower after our swim (1.30). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks!!

We stayed for one night prior to the manatee swim adventure. The hotel was, clean, up to date and had more than a continental breakfast. Muhammad (front desk) was so friendly and accommodating letting us have a late check out since the manatee swim would not be done until 1 pm. Mary took great pride in the breakfast service and...

Nice and good located hotel, room was clean and spacious, it definitely looks like its not a modern hotel but was pretty good for the price, LEE at the reception was just AMAZING, he was extremely helpful and funny. Only bad thing, breakfast was inedible, we actually skipped it our second morning and went to a local place instead.

This Holiday Inn is not new and shows some wear and tear. But the desk staff was not only friendly and efficient but made us feel welcome and offered information that made our stay more comfortable. Bed was comfortable, room was very clean and the breakfast was good with varied options.

The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. The rooms were very small. We stayed in a double queen room which was very hard to walk around. Either they need to take out some of the extra furniture in the room or put the double queens in larger rooms. The hotel and rooms were upgraded and the breakfast bar was... More

Great experience...very clean...they called a few days later to see how our visit went...excellent location to stay if you are swimming with manatees...would highly recommend. Breakfast was good and they have started serving it earlier which is great news for folks going to the early manatee trips.

Excellent hotel for our trip - quiet, comfy, loved the pillows which came with embroidery sharing if they were soft or firm. Great breakfast, especially the biscuits! Bathroom had plentiful towels and a really clean bathtub which was great as I was hankering for a bath. Very nice receptionist, friendly with all the guests, was there when we checked in... More
