This Holiday Inn was booked for a conference in which I attended which included the room in the rate. I was pleased with the front desk where check in was quick and correct. I had asked for a room with a king which was later to be found that the door would not lock upon leaving. When I notified the front desk they arrived quickly and when unable to resolve the problem I was quickly given another room.
While this was the off season I was pleased to find the HI to be at the end of the boardwalk and very easy to locate. The room while OK, had a lived in feel that I hope they don't let go much longer. Bathroom sink was cracked, stain on shower curtain and a candy wrapper (not mine) on the floor at the edge of the bed.
All rooms have a great view, free wi-fi, breakfast buffet was good, and as I travel solo felt very safe. If you are on a budget and don't need all the bells and such it is a good place to stay.
