“Great Oceanfront Resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Sunspree for a business event. The oceanfront room was wonderful. I enjoyed spending time sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean and watching the surfers. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. I also spent time at the hotel restaurant and the bar. The staff was very friendly. This was not my first time at the resort and I love going there! I've never had a bad experience.

Hi kms37,
Thank you for staying with us again and again. The oceanfront balconies are a good spot to zone out on the waves and surfers. We're excited you enjoyed your stay with us and we await your return soon :o) Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager

We spent only one, very rainy night here. The room was big and comfortable with enormous plate glass window looking out over the swimming pool and sea. The shower wasn't bad and the bed was comfortable. We had undercover parking. The breakfast was uninspiring, the juice not good and fruit selection poor.

Hey Adele D,
So glad you enjoyed your Oceanfront room and comfy bed. The 2-story parking deck is a great perk for our hotel guests. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the breakfast items but please try us again. We look forward to your return! Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager

Our goal was a quick, midweek getaway to celebrate a birthday. Their off season rate was a determining factor in our hotel choice. We were a bit disappointed that we could not get a requested ocean front room due to the hotel being filled with a conference. However, Matt at check-in said not to worry and that he'd get us in one the very next day so we didn't unpack completely. To our amazement the housekeeping staff was across the hall early the next morning turning over an ocean front room. We were able to wheel our stuff across the hall by mid-morning. The big king bed was comfy! Kudos to Matt and the housekeeping staff for excellent customer service. As this was a short stay, we decided to try their Oceans restaurant for meals. Anni and Lisa did a wonderful job in taking care of us. We found the menu selections and prices to be very good and reasonable. It would also be hard to top the ocean view. Their treatment and presentation of shrimp and grits was unique and very tasty. The restaurant staff gets a tip of the hat for keeping us onsite. Management is doing something right here because this staff gets high marks.

Great hotel and off-season rates were very reasonable. Check in was very smooth and I unexpectedly got a very early check in, and when you have been in the car for a very long ride with a toddler, this will give any hotel experience an extra star. The pools were well maintained and the view in the restaurant was incredible, great place for breakfast, although I thought the food quality was more three star. The kids pancakes were almost inedible, really, who cannot make pancakes? Good location, easy access and a large parking garage. Beach was great, room quality great and kept very clean. We had a two queen bed with ocean front balcony on the top floor and we loved it. Room service was fast but again, food quality was not as good as hoped. Overall good experience and I would go again.

This hotel did not disappoint! I was in the area for business and decided to stay on the beach. The staff was very friendly. I did not reserve an ocean front room but at check-in, I asked and was given a room on an upper floor with a magnificent view of the ocean. I did have a problem with the heating unit not working. It was less than 5 min from the time I called to report the problem until a maintenance worker was at my door. They had it fixed in no time. I was very impressed. I would also recommend eating at the restaurant. The food was very good for a hotel restaurant. I can't wait to come back!

Customer service at this hotel is beyond amazing. The staff is so sweet and helpful. The hotel was gorgeous , the rooms are spotless. The views from the rooms are breath taking, the oceanfront rooms are definitely worth the extra few dollars. The onsite restaurant is an experience in itself, the food was delicious! Best hotel stay I have ever had !

Wow jmarie4816! You are too much, thank you for your compliments :o) I'm so happy you had an amazing time with us. Did you try the Macadamia Encrusted Mahi Mahi in our Oceans Restaurant? It's dee-licious and even better dining alfresco on the Oceanfront terrace. Don't be a stranger, we hope to see you again soon - spring's almost here!

Was in the area on business and was able to get a fabulous weekday rate - very nice hotel, oceanfront views are amazing. Very relaxing and hope you can sleep with a little noise, because the waves are amazing.

Lots of good places to eat nearby.

Room Tip: Lots of balconies at this hotel - you just have to figure out sound side or the ocean view.

You said it orreo5859 :o) Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. Next time you visit, grab some hot tea or coffee from Oceans Restaurant and soak up the sunrise in a rocking chair on our 3rd floor Sunrise terrace and watch the pelicans coast over the waves - my FAV spot in the mornings! And if you want to venture to nearby restaurants, shopping or sights our complimentary shuttle is at your service. Visit us again soon! Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager
