We were going to a concert at the BB&T centre and tried to get a hotel nearby....but really expensive around Sunrise, so we drove out to this HIE. Great value & close enough to the BB&T. As expected from HIE, great breakfast, lovely room & good pool.

Stayed here on business recently and several times in the past. Good location, nice hotel, not too expensive, and friendly staff. Room was spacious and clean, breakfast a bit above average. Free parking. Free WiFi. Only issue I had was that WiFi kept kicking me off the system. Not sure why, but had to log in again several times. Overall... More

We stay at a lot of Holiday Inns and this one was the same as the others for service and quality. The room was nice, although the hotel was a little noisy but it was the holiday season so that was expected. It is a great location for going to the BBT Centre and down into Fort Lauderale without paying... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in December 2015 on a short family holiday. The hotel is convenient and easy to find, with ample free parking. The room was large, with a separate bedroom with king bed, and lounge area with sofa-bed. There was a kitchen area in the room, with coffee maker, microwave and fridge. The bathroom... More

Not much choice for this area and pricing. Disappointed, old, lots of small irritating things that add up to an uncomfortable stay. First, the photos of this place are like models in magazines. Glossed and seems photoshopped from reality. Second, the reception to check in was not welcoming, and there was no one else around. We had to ask for... More

This was probably the largest IHG hotel we have stayed at. As with the others, all the staff were good, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast was good. As my wife had this overwhelming urge to get some retail therapy at Sawgrass Mills Shopping Mall, this hotel was an ideal stopover, as it is around 20 minutes away.... More
