We arrived in town and didn't know Holiday Inn had moved to this location. I was so looking forward to hanging out on the beach. There's no beach at this location. It's a longish walk to get to the beach, but it is located across the street from the T-Head if you want to get fresh shrimp.
It wasn't bad, just not quite what one would expect ones accommodation and condition of the hotel to be for the pricing of ones stay.
The hotel need some sprucing up. The building was a different hotel chain at one time.
It's old location needed a lot, of updating (complete re-do actually). This location has a lot of wear and tear that needs work, and updating. Hotel has a small gift shop, which as gifts of course, items one needs for the beach, some light foods, coffee, etc.
Nice outdoor seating off lobby. The pool was nice. Strong chlorine smell. Lots of lounge chairs. Our room,
The air conditioning in the room was pretty poor. We had to turn it down to 68 to get it to even come on! It never got as low as 68 you understand, at best it got down to 78? So it was warm in the room, but we weren't in the room much (thank goodness).
Other than one bathroom, there was but one other available to use in our room. It wasn't located near the desk or nightstands. None of the lamps in the room had outlet capability either. Light bulls were of very low wattage so it's dark in the room.
The people manning the reservation desk, were adequate, but didn't have much personality. Perhaps they were having a difficult day because every other employee with whom we came into contact were very nice.
We particularly would like to tell management..., Skye is a keeper. Do I see a raise in her future? A lovely young lady.
