I stayed at the Holiday Inn Melaka for 2 nights during the August 2009 school holiday. Despite that it is school holiday, the hotel was quiet and we got one of our free night upgraded to a Straits View Club Room. The room was quite spacious and we added an extra bed. Everything in the hotel was new & clean and the room is quite comfy. We don't have the lift issue that many others have complaints, maybe it was off peak for the hotel. Swimming pool is nice - they have one for children and one for adult.
The hotel is within walking distance to nearby shops and Mahkota Parade Shopping Centre. They have a few restaurants opposite the hotel as the hotel is facing a boat jetty.
We saw in the internet that the club room comes with in-room DVD player and was quite dissappointed that it was not provided as we brought along some children DVDs for my girls to watch. Was told by the manager that the DVD is only provided for long term guest but it was not stated in their website.
Overall, quite a pleasant stay except for the DVD issue. The hotel could do better if there is a supervised kid's club with activities (as I thought Holiday Inn is supposed to be a family hotel). Currently, they have a small play area for the children at the far end of the hotel lobby.
