“Exactly what we needed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

After a very long day of looking at investment properties, the incredible ease of checking in to the Holiday Inn was a very pleasant experience. Every single staff person I met or talked to went out of their way to help or make sure we had what we needed. It was like they really enjoyed their job and being there( which was really nice!) The hotel is 6 floors. We had the king suite on the 6th floor which is a great room with a very good bathroom. The doors "slam" on their on so you will experience that hotel hall noise effect. Just enjoy a great meal in the hotel restaurant along with a few toddies and you will be set for a good night's sleep.The bartender/waiter was so impressive. He sat us immediately and continued top notch service throughout our meal! Their menu is small but there are some great choices to pick from. If you want to venture out to the 49 hwy traffic, you will find: Wendy's ,McDonalds, a couple of hibachi places, Hooter's, Krispy Kreme, Burger King, Waffle House and Dynasty Buffet. Of course you are only about 4 miles from other restaurants close to hwy 90 or beach rd. I was just so thankful not to have to get back in the car! We had a restful nights sleep. Fresh coffee in the lobby--such a sweet staff! They do have a breakfast buffet .It seemed a little pricey to me because we are not huge breakfast eaters. It was 12$ for the buffet. We chose to hit Mcdonalds and head out from there. This is a great hotel for a one or two night stop. Keep in mind though in the south during aug-oct is big soccer and softball tournament time. You may have many kids running around! They have a fabulous indoor pool and vending (chocolate) on each floor. Parking lot safe with lots of lighting. You are about 3 miles from I-10. VERY clean facility.
Come enjoy the coast:)

Room Tip: 6th floor king suite is in a corner--only one neighbor beside you and you are at the end of the hall

Stayed at this hotel in the middle of a road trip and what I found in terms of infrastructure and service quality was beyond my expectations. A big remark must be given to service provided by the attendant of the restaurant/room service. Top notch.
It is definiely on my list for a next opportunity in the vicinity.

I have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn twice, now and enjoyed it both times. The staff is the friendliest ever encountered at any motel. Checkout was at noon and I was delighted to not hear a housekeeper at my door until 11:45. When I left the motel at 8 am, there were no housekeepers in sight. Most relaxing. I did not swim in the pool, but went in again to enjoy the atmosphere there. The indoor pool has a roof that opens, leaving a glass roof in place, and gives the feeling of swimming outside. The temperature in the swimming room is delighful, not cold and clammy or hot and steamy like some are. Air circulates constantly so the air, which is warm enough for swimmers out of the water, is comfortable for those who are not swimming. There is no free breakfast, but the buffet was good though expensive. The whole motel was very clean, same wonderful beds as in every Holiday Inn. The location is great....the beach is to the south and I-10 is a block north. Any store you need, including outlet mall, is close by. It's not often that you can stay in a motel where the staff makes you feel like they are all there just for you, and that they really care about your stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: There is no beautiful view in any direction. Choices are I-10, Hwy 49, or motel next door. I don'...

Words cannot the warmth of the customer service, the clean and comfortable rooms and the location as a whole. I really was amazed at the customer service from checkin until check out.
If ever you need a definition for Customer Service; then book a room here at the Holiday Inn Gulfport MS if in town.
I had the chance to eat and have a drink in " Kems " Dinning and the atmosphere was fabulous. I wasn't able to get certain names but if I could have, then I would have to call each and every name that was there on Wed night and Thursday morning.
Hats off to the Ownership and the Gm for having such an outstanding staff and property.
In closing, this is one hotel property to be a model after.

Room Tip: The high floor corner rooms are great views of the area.

Great hotel with an indoor pool. Staff do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one. My daughter left her glasses behind and Steve, made sure that my daughter could see again. I will stay in this hotel if my travels take me to Gulfport again.

Another week in Gulfport, Mississippi and I selected this Holiday Inn, mostly from my experience earlier in the year. The location is right next to everything so expect a little road noise and train horns, but the rooms are very spacious, clean and the air conditioning is wonderful, so it was worth the little bit of noise.
The front desk staff were always smiling and welcoming. I liked the free cocktail card when arriving back at the hotel in the afternoon. The bar staff were friendly and always had the time to say hello and greet each customer as they arrived. Even the maids, cleaning staff, maintenance people smiled and always had a nice word to say to their customers. It was like they were really enjoying their jobs and were happy you were there.
Kudos to the hotel management for creating this atmosphere!
Special thanks to Karin and the rest of the breakfast bunch for starting my work day off with a smile and the bartender in the evening, who treated the customer like family. It is a regular Holiday Inn with extraordinary people working there. A real nice, reasonably price hotel for someone a long way from home!
