The hotel is located just a couple of blocks from a very nice beach. It is within walking distance even with 2 young kids. We stayed here as part of a 2 week road trip and it was one of 5 Holiday inns we stayed in, my husband is also a platinum member so we're very familiar with Holiday inn. Of all the places we stayed the staff here was by far the rudest. My husband went to the desk one evening to ask for a good place to eat and the man behind the counter passed him the local map! That's it. No one else was there, it was not a busy time. There was only one elevator and the employees act like you are bothering them by getting in with them! This happened with three times with three different employees!!! One lady actually rolled her eyes as my daughter and I enter. The room was large and comfortable. I did notice some really nasty brown sticky stuff all over the curtains. Pretty gross but the rest of the room seemed clean, hopefully just something over looked. Overall the room was fine, the location was perfect so if you can put up with the staff it's worth it!
