Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, and even mention our employees by name. I will be sure to share your compliments to them. As you mentioned, we do allow pets in the ground floor rooms ($20 per night), which is very convenient for guests traveling with pets. I hope you come back and visit again soon!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Staff was very helpful (service in restaurant for breakfast was very slow, but they were busy. Food was very good.)
Beautiful location, comfortable bed. Now you had to work it to get a view of the ocean, just sayin, but still it was great to be on the beach.

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed the food, location, and comfortable bed. It sounds like it was a partial view room, where you can see the ocean from the balcony. We also have oceanfront rooms, which, by far, have the best view. Call us directly next time you are coming our way, and we'll make sure you get the view you are looking for. Thank you again for vacationing with us.

The Holiday Isle is an older hotel in a great location. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It wasn't noisy. We loved the pool and the Tiki Bar where we were able to order a delicious lunch. The check in and check out were easy. The staff was pleasant. There are more fancy places to stay on the beach, but the Holiday Isle was the best value for the services received. We plan to stay there on our next visit.

We were real pleased with the Holiday Isle. Since it was the offseason and they were slow, the staff upgraded our room. Maybe it was the time of year, but we received a free continental breakfast with our stay.
While the place is older, it is well maintained. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable.
The beach is fantastic and just a short walk from the hotel.
The only complaint is that there was an ongoing argument (loud) between one of the cleaning ladies and some other staff on both days we were there.
We plan to stay here again on our next visit.

one thing that all readers should notice is that this management group is reading and responding to this feedback which as impressive as it is rare on these sites. That's a very good indicator that they care about their customer's and value their recommendations. I've stayed here when it was Holiday Inn and now that it's Holiday Isle, I think its actually better. Renovations can be expected to be a continual activity in this service setting. I'm always surprised to see 5 star expectations out of 2.5 star wallets on these things, but whatever. This place is really a terrific value and what makes it even better is the actual service component. I'll continue to stay here.

We had a great time. We chose this hotel because its pet friendly, and because its steps from the beach. We were happy to see alot of other families that had brought their pets too! The room was decent and the pool area was nice. The staff were nice...and the check in process was a breeze!
