“stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2005

Yuck! Checked in here for our trip home from Florida to Massachusetts. Was listed in the AAA tourbook as Holiday Inn Express - they apparently changed to a Comfort Inn about a month ago. We asked on the phone and again at the checkin if the wireless access worked, and was told yes. When we got to our room, it didn't work. When we called, the desk attendant said, oh, sometimes the rooms farther from the desk don't pick up the signal. Also, by this time, we were feeling uncomfortable about the place - the hallways were dingy and dirty, the light in our daughters' room flickered, and the room smelled funny.

The only good thing I have to say is that when we immediately checked back out, we weren't given a hard time. and it was no charge. But don't reserve here thinking you are getting a Holiday Inn Express experience.
