We used our hotel coupon to get a good rate at this hotel. The Front Desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The Port City Pub in the hotel was great ... and the food delicious. Our room was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. We had a beautiful view from our 4th floor window.

My husband and I came here for the weekend for our anniversary. I've stayed here several times before so thought this was a good choice. This time we were disappointed. The room was very clean which is a big plus for me. Also, the food in the pub was very good. On Saturday, we wanted to relax for a while...

I have been staying here a few times a year for twenty years or more. Consistently clean, comfortable, accommodating, good food, always great service! The fact that it is handy to the traffic circle is a bonus.

Clean was an understatement! Comfortable and such a great staff. On a cold winters night what a fabulous surprise for us. Hot coffee and The Best chocolate chip cookies in the lobby😊. If you love history, the beach or shopping and everything in between this was one of the best Holiday Inns I've had the pleasure of staying at.

Stay at Holiday Inn many times during the off season and absolutely love it there. Have actually NEVER had a bad stay. We usually get the same room ( Thanks) and it's been the quietest room and Hotel I've ever stayed in! The staff are unbelievably fabulous to deal with. Front desk, housekeepers, maintenance people, etc are all VERY nice...

Good points: staff were young and smart. Good location. Bad: The hotel: one slow elevator. The halls smelled of macaroni cheese. The room: where to start? The door lock was loose and rattled in its fitting. The door itself was old and worn and didn't close properly. The keycard unlocked the door only one in every three attempts. The carpet...
