I stay at Holiday Inn Express properties all the time and this one would be below average by any comparison but it is on the beach so you can overlook the age of the place and dated rooms so my rating would have been higher if the hotel actually took care of the things that they don't need much money to do. The luggage carts were the worse I have seen in a long time; pneumatic tires that were not inflated enough and really hard to roll when loaded. Elevators that don't stop level with the floors. Rooms where it was impossible to place anything high enough to keep out of reach of kids, noisy frig, etc. The front desk people weren't rude but were apathetic as heck and couldn't answer questions like 'Where is a seafood restaurant?'
I’ve been to at least 50 HIEs and the breakfast is not great but okay; a meat of some sort, egg like substance of some sort, sausage gravy, and biscuits. For the first time ever though, this hotel had no meat one day and instead called the sausage gravy (that they have every day) a ‘meat’ . It’s things like this that bug me when I expect at least the minimum out of a hotel chain. (The breakfast lady was great though). It would be a great hotel for staying on the beach if you want away from the Daytona strip and don't expect much out of the room. They should take care of the little things though.
