Third or fourth trip to this hotel. Once again we had a problem with check-in and one day with getting the room cleaned. This seems to be par for the course at this hotel. Being a Priority Club member and having stayed at Holiday Inns in several different countries I very seldom have troubles at HI hotels and usually find the staff to be very helpful. Enough on the bad stuff, on to the good!!
The hotel is not on the beach, but we find that to be a small and easily overcome problem. We load all our stuff in the back of the truck, drive 2 blocks to the beach, park and have a great time. When it is time to come back to the hotel it is only a short walk to the truck to load everything, If we were in a condo on the beach we would have to lug our stuff much further back to the room. The hotel is usually clean and well maintained. The breakfast is good and the lady that take care of it is great!! I'm not sure what her name is, but she really, really does a good job. Overall this hotel is good, but definitely not great!! The price is high, especially for this time of year, and the service does not back up the high cost. Since you have few choices, it is a good place to stay, but I really wish they would take it up a few notches and make it a great place to stay.
