We found the hotel dirty - both of the couches in our room were stained, the carpet had stains and the shower had mold in it. The only saving grace was the short distance to the beach and walking distance to good restaurants. We spent very little time in our room because it was so unappealing, and we wouldn't have... More

I have never stayed in a hotel like this and we enjoyed it. The middle of the hotel is covered so when it rained we weren't getting rained on while walking to our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful! They do have a water park in the front yard and does cost extra but if I remembered correctly... More

The rooms were nice and clean. The food at the hotel restaurant was very good but the service was slow and our waitress was not friendly. Love all of the things for kids to do. The water park was a blast! We will be back again.

This is for family vacationing. We stayed for business and found out that it was more conducive to family. The parking garage is always full. The elevator is very slow. The air conditioning quit working tonight I was leaving. So I suffered in moist air for the last few hours of my sleep and got sick. The hotel personnel tried... More

We spent a very relaxing two weeks here. I'd recommend it for couples or families. You can walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants near. The beach is unspoilt so don't expect toilets or a beach bar- just enjoy the view and bathe in the very warm ocean!

I think the hotel must have been remodeled recently. The room we had was VERY spacious, very clean and seemed to have been recently updated. The common areas are terrific. We had kids in our party and they really enjoyed the mini golf - while the adults enjoyed the outdoor restaurant/bar. We had breakfast in the a.m. and the folks... More

We stayed at this hotel almost a year ago and had a great stay. It has a resort atmosphere and we loved the closeness to the beach and good resturants.

Holiday Inn Harbourside was absolutely perfect. They went above and beyond to keep guests happy. They printed our boarding passes for us before flying home, had housekeeping bring items we needed to the room instead of asking us to come to the front desk, and gave so much great info about how to enjoy our trip (Restaurant recommendations, etc).
