This hotel was very clean and nice. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Like other reviewers mentioned, the cinnamon rolls were delicious and a nice break from the typical hotel breakfast. As far as the room, it smelled great and was very clean. I liked that the mini fridge, Keurig, and microwave were in a small separate... More

We have stayed here in the past and will again in the future. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast bar is good, especially the warm, cinnamon buns. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Location is good as well. Why would we look elsewhere?

Quiet hotel, tucked away off the main drag. Room was comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was OK but not as good as the last 2 HIEs I stayed in; there was not much of a fresh fruit selection, only red and green apples. Having all the hot food in one enclosure is a bad idea; only... More

Holiday Inn has really stepped up their game. Hotel was new with updated furniture. Room was spotless upon arrival. Comfortable nights sleep. The hotel is not located on the beach, but it is a short drive. We came over a day earlier and needed a room for one night. Didn't eat the breakfast buffet, but it had many new options... More

We booked our stay at Holiday Inn through a Priceline express deal and paid only about $55/nt. We were super pleased with our room. We had a better than average continental breakfast and the room was very big. Our room included a king bed, chair + ottoman, and a sofa. The location was good as well; it wasn't on the... More
