Stayed here for three nights while on a work trip. The room was modern, clean, and quite a bit larger than I expected. The bedding was extremely soft and comfortable. Even though I had a room next to the elevator with a view of the main road, I was never awoken by outside noise. Front desk staff and breakfast staff... More

Staff extremely helpful and courteous, and very friendly. Parking was secure, I felt. Very accommodating with answering questions and enjoyed my room upgrade so much I stayed another night. Centrally located, better breakfast than usual for HOliday Inn Express. Quiet rooms, no problems.

Great place to stay close to the beach. Walking distance from many food and entertainment hot spots. Have never been disappointed. Free breakfast,workout and media area. Enjoy a day at the beach and then come back and relax in the colorfully lit pool and hot tub.

Pool was opened to a bus full high school students who were out of control consuming things they should not have been in the pool area. Finally there were so many complaints they were forced to leave. Later, security closed the pool area and in doing so got verbally abusive with my children. I politely suggested they should be more... More

Hello colleenkittleson! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel. I have to tell you, I am horrified to read this.

We enjoyed our stay here over spring break. The room was pricey, but clean and spacious. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful and well-staffed. It is close to the beach and restaurants.

This inn is very new and it's just one of two branded inn's on the island. The only reason I was there was I needed a place to spend the night because the nearby major city was sold out. They provided exactly what I needed but the price was disproportionately too much for what I got (the spring break effect).... More

My sister and I were going to the Whooping Crane Festival and booked this hotel, as I feel like they are usually the nicer hotels when you are staying in a smaller town and Holiday Inn Express seems to be pretty consistent. The hotel and our room was clean - which to me, is one of the most important things.... More

Had a great one night stay at the holiday inn. The price was right. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. Ryan at the front desk was friendly, helpful and had a great attitude. Walking distance to the beach. I would totally come back again. Thanks y'all.

This hotel was clean with a very helpful and friendly staff. It is a quick 2 block walk to the beach. The price was a bargain for a beach hotel. The staff took great care of the pool area which was always clean. They also power washed the front drive area to keep it clean from sand. The beaches were... More
