There was nothing particularly bad about this Holiday Inn Express, but as anyone else who frequents Holiday Inn Express knows, you come to expect a certain level of service and cleanliness at their establishments. They're nothing fancy, but dependably consistent. From the service at the front desk, to the dirty hallways, to thin walls (never before heard so much noise...

The property is nice and the staff was very pleasant. They have a nice breakfast area but I did not eat. The rooms were clean and comfortable with the usual accompaniments. The noise level was loud and I mean you could here people in adjoining rooms as well as the people upstairs. I like the location but would choose a...

The grounds were nice the restaurant/bar/pool was very good. Room was clean but sooo noisy. The air conditioner sounded like a rattle trap every time it kicked in, I could hear folks talking, hear their TV's and heard the guy snoring all night. It was not that people were being extra loud it's that the walls are so thin you...

My wife and I stayed here one night at a rate of 229, it is really only worth 189 tops in my opinion. The beds are keeping the score from being a 4. The property is nicely set up as there is a restaurant with outdoor eating and a rental place that does snorkeling and jet ski rentals on site...

This is not you ordinary Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast is good fresh and filling. The hotel is attached to a marine with access to the Atlantic for fishing. Sports fishing charters are docked there over night. A tiki themed restaurant with a bar is between the Hotel and the marine. So great location and activities. Great stay at the halfway...

We've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express. It's not high end but restful and fills the need. That's what I expected. We had traveled most of the day, visited with friends, just wanted a good nights sleep. The front desk had a very chatty young lady who just wanted to talk. When we finally got to our room at least...

Overall, this was a wonderful experience for us, again. We have stayed three times and would go back. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is decent, there is a lovely beach a short drive away and restaurants you can walk to. The only negative I would say is that by 4 p.m. there is no sun over the pool.
