**The only exception is the lady in the morning that covers the breakfast area. First class all the way, and Southern charm at it's best.
The hotel has been recently updated - so that's a plus, but the rooms with two double beds are just that - DOUBLES! If you are traveling with significant other, be ready to cozy up! Most Holiday Inn's and HIE's are Queens. Not sure what happened here.
The hot water must come from the Cracker Barrell next door, you literally must leave the water spigot open for a couple of minutes before you get a drop of hot water. I just can't imagine the water wasted at this hotel for that reason alone. (We were on the 2nd floor - no excuse for that!!) The bathrooms really leave you shaking your head. There is barely enough clearance to open the door past the toliet, and there is no air movement in the bathroom or an exhaust fan. When you take a shower, the mirror is instantly fogged up and almost impossible for a woman to do make up and hair if someone else needs to take a shower.... well that and the fact you both won't fit in the bathroom at the same time.
I was not impressed, we literally left a day early and took our chances with a walk in rate at the beach.
