The overriding memory of my one night stay at the Inn is the fusty smell of the room. It pervaded everything and lingered throughout the stay. This was a problem as I didn't leave the room for 24 hours -- except for meal times -- as I was exhausted after a long journey. The room was spotless, but the damp smell inescapable.

Other than the smell, I can report that the Inn has hearty -- if a bit greasy -- food and EXCELLENT service. The architecture is a bit gaudy, but then you don't expect understated elegance at the Holiday Inn. The pillows are also far too mushy. One gets what one pays for at the Inn.

I am a frequent visitor to this hotel on business and the staff and service they provide continues to get better and better. Not only are they very accommodating they are reliable too. I tend to stay for lengthy periods on business and found they are one of the most competitive priced hotels in Al-Khobar given the level of service and comfort they provide. The rooms are clean and of a reasonable size. The internet connection is reliable which can be very important from a business perspective. Work is well underway on a new gym and spa which will be a huge plus when completed. It also appears to be very popular with families as there is a reasonable sized paddling pool for younger children. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone if the they are looking for value for money, comfort and pleasant responsive staff.

I stayed on this hotel last night. I was not sure where to spend the night at Al-Khobar city. I wanted a quite, good value for money, easy to reach & with a great Iftar and Sahoor experience. I hit the jackpot with this one!

My expectations were low until i arrived at the hotel:
- Very prestigious lobby.
- Extremely friendly front desk.
- Clean and spacious rooms.
- Outstanding Ramadan Fatoor experience. The buffet was fantastic.

Strongly recommended for quick getaway out of the normal Ramadan routine. Special thanks to Naveed, the deputy manager, for his excellent customer service skills. Looking forward for my next visit!

The transfer from the airport was arranged efficiently by the hotel, which is better than another hotels in Saudi managed for me recently. This is not a luxury hotel, but the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast is good. The dinner menu changes every night and is ok. Staff were friendly.
The gym was a bit on the small side, only two running machines, and one of those was faulty. only one elliptical cross trainer machine and that was so noisy that it was essentially unusable.

An excellent and well run hotel that makes you feel welcome and relaxed especially after a grueling day in the heat. The rooms are well appointed and quiet with a bowl of fruit that proved very welcoming.

The breakfasts are outstanding as are the buffet lunches and dinners which change every day. It is popular with the locals which must mean something. However, the restaurant seems to accommodate everyone without appearing to be crowded.

I would definitely come back and stay again and look forward to doing so.
