This is an older property but the staff do a good job of keeping it clean and neat. The rooms have been remodeled but the beds are not what I expect from a HIE property. Quiet and pretty location. Not near the beach or pier area but would be good for business travelers.

I really don't like giving bad reviews, and this is my own personal experience for what it's worth. First, the pro: The hotel was very clean, a beautiful setting, and the staff exemplary. We were greeted with a warm welcome. We had two reservations because we decided we could arrive a day early. This meant we had two different rooms.... More

Only stayed one night here on our way south through the Golden Isles region. A fairly basic hotel with a small pool, it is just a couple of miles from the busy Neptune Park area with the lighthouse & pier, & nearby shops & restaurants. The small breakfast area in the lobby was busy in the morning, but the good... More

Given the extravagant prices of the Golden Isles, it is hard to find nice accommodations for a reasonable price. The Holiday Inn Express is such a place. It is wonderfully located and the rooms were nice and clean. The staff was exceptional. Great choice in the month of March for us.

This HI express- was the same as the others- same breakfast too. I stayed one night, so I didn't see the gym or fitness center.

Clean and comfortable, and in a good location. It's about a 5 minute drive to the beaches and to the little downtown area by the pier, but there are a number of restaurants within walking distance. The pool is a bit small, but staying at the hotel gives you access to a local gym that is just down the street.... More

Was away for a long weekend and as always, staff was helpful and the place continues to be maintained well. Keep in mind this is a typical Holiday Inn Express, meets the requirements and nothing more.

Ample parking and clean rooms. Ours did not have a fridge or microwave but was comfortable and with a decent bathroom. Breakfast was adequate and I had no problem parking my kayak trailer for the duration of our stay. Lots of families staying here seemed pretty pleased.

My husband and I traveled from Wisconsin to attend a wedding last weekend. We are Diamond members of IHG so instead of staying at the King and Prince, we chose to be loyal brand patrons.

Negatives - Breakfast selections were not great. There was no meat options. The eggs were tasteless. The elevator was very small and inconvenient. The rooms were fine and hotel location fine as well. Positive - The front desk staff was very friendly and competent - much appreciated.
