Great staff, room and bed. Very busy place. We enjoyed time there.
Coming in to Gulf Shores from the north we followed the Holiday Inn website directions and couldn't find the hotel. I also used my Garmin Nuvi gps and put in the address and still couldn't find the hotel! We finally broke down and called and were given much better directions and found it right away. We didn't spot it before because the hotel is mainly hidden behind a Wachovia building and you only spot the sign for a second between buildings or if you happen to look back as you go past the location.
A very new Holiday Inn that's starting to show wear in places. They need to watch the general maintenance or it's going to start going downhill. I say this because I noticed a number of dirty walls throughout, main entrance doors were often having to be temporarily fixed by front desk staff and other issues that seemed unusual for hotel that appears to be only a year or 2 old.
