Just came back from this hotel. First night, watched a wierd black wormy bug crawling around on the bathroom wall while I took a bath. (really creepy...) Was glad when it got washed down the drain when my son took a shower in the morning. Carpets on ground floor were obviously dirty. Room lock, for key entry, worked sporadically. (about 30% of the time..) Safe in room was non-functional, but was impossible to close and blocked the way when passing in and out of the room door. Second day, staff kept asking us if we were checking out. Repeatedly informed them that we were booked for another day. Maid came to make up our room a 2nd time at 4:00PM, when we were in it, because she claimed it was "vacant". Found out on the 3rd day, that they needed our room the day before for a large party they were putting on our floor. I'm not sure if they were trying to harass us until we left, or what??? We had an "executive" room, which meant we spent more, but overlooked the roof of the lobby and resturant. A view of multiple roof airconditioners and random wires did not seem very, "executive". Paid twice as much for this room as we should have. Feel taken advantage of. I'm willing to write off Holiday Inns as poorly maintained with questionable help after this trip. One bright note, Ed, one of the shuttle drivers, was great. The way you expect everyone to be when you spend a forture for a weekend at the beach. I'll never trust this hotel again.
