This is a nice friendly up-to-date Holiday Inn. The new decor is not what I would have chosen, but it works for a one-night stay. It is sort of retro to the '70s with olive, avocado and powder blue. Front desk was friendly and efficient. As others remark, nice new TVs, free wireless internet, nice pool area. Room was impeccably clean, no sign of any mold, mildew etc. Bed was one of the deep luxury models, a pleasure to sleep on.
Only minor exception I have is the through-the-wall a/c system which means the HVAC creates that wind tunnel noise common with these. Several other restaurants are located at this interchange so no reason to feel you must eat here. You can do far worse than this in Florida.
