This hotel is OK. It is clean and the staff are all very nice. You do get what you pay for. It is not a fancy hotel and it does seem a bit old although renovated. There is not much to do around the hotel so if you are looking for a cheap place to stay this is the place.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 5 year old daughter. The king room with the sofa bed was great. Newly remodeled and very nice inside. Great breakfast selection in the morning, including pancakes, eggs, biscuits, cereal, pastries, juice, etc. CVS and walmart are a 2 minute drive if you need anything, and SeaWorld, and the Zoo, are 15...

Stayed here for a quick overnight in transit to an onward destination, check in was quick and efficient, staff were very helpful. Room was clean and well presented, all the usual amenities and to a good standard. Breakfast well presented and a swift checkout, exactly what you need from a Holiday Inn Express!
