What a pleasant place to stay. Centrally located on the seawall with all the rooms facing the water, each with their own balcony. Room was average, decor slightly aged but clean and neat. Additional monitored parking in another lot behind the hotel (the restaurant and bar does seem to draw a crowd in on the weekend nights). Happy hour is... More

I stayed on the top floor with a wonderful view of the ocean and Seawall. The room was huge and the bed was semi luxurious. The bathroom was large. The elevators and outside areas weren't overly desirable, but the rest of the hotel made up for that. There is an arcade for the kids, a very small and over priced... More

We stayed here 3 days after finishing a cruise. This is simply the best - from the rooms to customer service. You will not be disappointed!! We booked this about 6 months out through IHG. Now we had a very bad experience with IHG Staybridge Suites in New Orleans a couple years ago (they sold our room while we were... More

Booked 3 of us for a night before our cruise. The shuttle is great for the cruise. We arrived before check-in and they were more than willing to keep all our luggage for us. Room didn't take that long to be ready. The view on the balcony is beautiful, we were on the fifth floor. Rooms were clean and comfortable.... More

We stayed here with friends after a cruise just because we wanted to see the island and extend our vacation. The place is older and slightly outdated but they were trying to keep it looking nice. While we were there they were doing some upgrades on some floors and cleaning the outside of the building. The pool is a decent... More

Here for business and this hotel was priced well and had a great location, for both my business and its location to the beach. The beach and a very nice boardwalk is right across the street, there are also several very nice restaurants within walking distance. This is perhaps the largest Holiday Inn I have stayed at. The rooms were... More

Thanks to another review I chose this hotel for our night before our cruise. It was perfect, they allowed us to leave my car in their extended parking lot. Saved on parking at the port and dealing w all that! Room was very clean, beds were both clean and comfy and our breakfast was perfect before catching the ship. Yes... More
