“Great Hotel - Would Stay Again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We wanted to get away for the weekend and this hotel was a great choice. The staff was friendly and accomodating, from check-in to check-out. The room was very nice. Most importantly, if was very CLEAN. We had an ocean front room with a fireplace and a small kitchen, which was great since we were travelling with kids. The one downfall was the indoor pool area. The pool was chilly, and the hot tubs were so hot that we or other guests could barely sit in them. We would sit on the edge and put our feet in the hot tub. The area was very clean, although I didn't like the fact that the person cleaning the pool/hot tub area would come and dump chemicals in the hot tub while we were sitting there. He also started to hose off the area at 8:00 pm, causing us to leave that area. The pool doesn't close until midnight. The hotel is in a great location, and at this time of the year there is no traffic so you can get to where you want to go very quickly. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: If going in the winter, ask for a room with a fireplace - nice touch!

We have a home in the Delaware resort area, but always like to spend one night of our Christmas vacation in OC. I am a little bored with the tired hotels that are available. Have tried many, and was willing to try one more. GREAT GREAT GREAT. price was right, cheaper than most in the area, room was spacious and clean. Great ocean view. Next Christmas we know where we will spend our nght away from home. Love that the pool area is open intil mid-night Thanks

When looking to get away for a quick weekend trip, we were looking for somewhere affordable and comfortable. That was exactly what we encountered during our stay at this hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly and we had a beautiful room. The room was clean and very comfortable and the kitchen was a nice treat. I highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be coming back and look forward to enjoying it in the summer when the outdoor pool is open as well.

I have been to OC 11 (yes eleven) times, we love it! We love the Holiday Inn as the centre of our stay as it is the perfect place for everything. Beach, Bus and Busy Bars. They welcome you wether you have met them before or for the first time and we have never had such a polite, helpful and friendly service. Last time we were there the weather was not good and they sent us on a wine tour, which they organised right down to the transport from the hotel and back again. The rooms are all great and just what you need for a relaxing holiday, the pools are lovely and I recommend the pool bar. Have the Chicken Tender Wrap, gorgeous! (with a frozen cocktail its better still). I'm going back again this year - and taking friends - can't wait.

Room Tip: I would try for a high floor over looking the beach, you may have to walk 30 yards further but its w...

I have been staying here for business and pleasure for over four years. Would never consider another location. Great views from rooms, great pool and beach right outside your door. Location is a good family spot as well. Two types of restsurants inside also. Food is outstsnding.

I have stayed here before but this time I had an ocean view with a balcony for New years Eve. They even supplied a bottle of champagne New Years eve. Excellent front desk staff. Had two meals at Silhouette restaurant and they were five star. Even got a discount with the room and the price was right.

Room Tip: Ocean view!

We stayed here the other night after a friend's wedding. Shut the bar down at 2am, bartender was kind enough to stay open for us. All of the staff we encountered were very courteous. We liked all of the amenities the room offered (even an electric fireplace!), however I did not sleep well due to hearing every single person passing in the hallway outside of our room. Sadly, I think it's the nature of the way the hotel is built, no quick fix of getting around it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of a hallway to try to get less traffic outside your door.
