Standouts are the cleanliness and decor in the rooms, including shelving as well as a bureau, tables, seating, make up mirror and walk in tiled shower. Wi-Fi was very fast and plenty of outlets. Room included microwave and refrigerator. Front desk staff was courteous but not overly welcoming. No concierge. Outdoor minimalist pool. Coffee was available in the lobby in the morning, but not tea and the coffee was not out until 6:30 am when the restaurant opened. People sitting impatiently in lobby waiting for coffee. Breakfast is not included. Lucky pelican restaurant around the corner is excellent seafood restaurant and many restaurants and shopping in immediate area. Close to the interstate. Bar is walled from lobby so not as inviting as in some Holiday Inns. A negative was that the parking was full because of a meeting and hotel guests had to park in the shopping mall nearby. Would suggest the hotel reserve space for guests and have short-term meeting participants park in shopping mall. Overall a clean, pleasant hotel in a convenient location but not as welcoming or accommodating as some.
