The price is really high for one night. But the front desk staff is one of the most helpful and friendliest. Especially Miriam. She was able to help us get a rare last minute room and allowed us to check in early. The pool is nice and wasn't busy until late afternoon. Lots of choices for breakfast. All in all... More

Holiday Inn was fantastic! The manager Destinee was amazing! She was so friendly and accommodating! It was a spur of the moment trip and she found us a room. She even got us into the room right away so that we could get settled since we drove through the night! I would definitely go back because of her!!

The room and amenities were fine, but it is located behind high-rise condos. Had to walk around them and for the price, I would expect a better location! We stayed a Monday and Tuesday night---the price for Tuesday was about $70 more than Monday! We were told that as availability goes down, prices go up!

We stayed here for a long weekend in August. Even though check in is 3pm the hotel will give you your parking pass and let you use the outdoor restroom and shower to get changed to head to the beach. They will text you when your room is ready. Walking to the beach is easy. It is about two short... More

Hotel was nice overall with good service. We checked in late on a Friday and checked out at 2pm on a Sunday. The hotel is within walking distance from the beach a 5 minute commute. They have an outdoor pool with umbrellas and lounge chairs. A nice stay overall.

Clean hotel (which is very important to me). A bit pricey but considering you at within10 minutes walking distance to Ben it's fair. They have a free breakfast with a huge selection of food items for kids and adults. Cereal,omelette,pastries,bacon,sausage,biscuits,gravy,toast,bagels,yogurt,fruit,juices, and coffee and teas 7a-10a.

I guess in a basic way, this hotel is okay. The room was generally clean and quiet, and breakfast and parking is included. However, a lot of little things bothered us. The biggest two were that nothing in the room ever dried, and the wifi was terribly slow. when you are at the beach, you should be able to hang... More

This hotel is in a good, central location. The staff is as nice as can be! It was raining when I was there, so I didn't really get to enjoy the beach, but I was there on business anyway in the off-season. The hotel was more crowded than I expected. The breakfast was varied and very good! There didn't seem... More
