This is a very good Holiday Inn Express in a great location and it has a great staff. It does get busy so the breakfast buffet gets a little crowded but it is the shore after all. I stayed here twice this summer and was very pleased.

This hotel advertises it it is 1 block from the beach--it's not as simple as that especially with children. It's one long block half of which you walk in the street in the "biking" lane and the other on a side street. It's is also a 15 minute walk from town. That could have been tolerated though and certainly would... More

Exactly what u hope from a holiday inn. Clean, everything works, great location for a reasonable price. We squeezed 5 into a room and it worked well for two nights. It's two blocks from beach and it's a flat walk. Easy to lug stuff or to drop it off with car, drive back and walk. Bfast was good enough. Lots... More

We have stayed at this property before. The rooms are typical HIE. The hotel is close to the beach. The room was ok but the bathroom was not clean. They have these things on the bottom of the bathtub (I guess so you don't slip?) but there is mold/mildew - dirt all around the edge. I called to complain and... More

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.
