This hotel is nothing special, in my opinion. We came because of the nice children's pool area and it ended up being cold so much that my 3 year old daughter was running around shivering. For this reason, we only ended up going swimming once during our 2 night stay. Another comment is that we were not told about the... More

Our room was nice, and included a refrigerator and microwave. Only problem was 2 used washcloths in the shower that were overlooked by the housekeepers. Kind of gross but not a deal breaker. Breakfast was quite good, pancakes, eggs, etc. Splash pad/pool area was a nice bonus but it's set up for young kids. Everything is shallow including the main... More

My mother and I were there for a bridal shower for my cousin and this hotel was close by to the location. At check in (we got in early) no rooms were ready with two double beds and we had two rooms booked. The girl at the desk was super accommodating and went to housekeeping to see what was available....

We really loved our room. One of the cleanest and most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The pillows and mattress were great and bathroom was very clean. The location of our room was undesirable but we were not in the room much so it didn't effect us. Otherwise, I would have been asked to be moved. The pool, office,... More

I have been in very expensive hotels, Yet this particular one has been my favorite by far. We had kids and the pool area was more than enough fun for them. Also the Complimentary Breakfast is delicious Pancakes, Omelets made to order and the Staff is very friendly and helpful.

I can't really say anything negative about this hotel. It was very, very clean, and I would not hesitate to return. It's so very close to Rivertown Crossings Mall and the new Tanger Outlet Mall, for those of you who enjoy shopping, dining, and the cinema. I will only add that it was a bit pricey for a Holiday inn... More

We have a family of 5 - and 11 year old boy, a 7 year old girl and a 4 year old girl. The only complaint was from our son when he found out the pool depth only went to 3.5 feet. Otherwise, everything was great. We had a suite with a king bed in one part and two sleeper... More

This hotel was wonderful for a family getaway for my daughter and toddler granddaughter. The staff were wonderful, food was great and the pool area and toddler splash pad were a hit. The staff were very accommodating.
