Close to the airport, shuttle to the airport and park and fly options. Nice staff. Easy check in and out. A little moldy smelling but dehumidifiers all over the place. Waterfront but rooms dont face that way

Hello Todd W, Thank you for trusting our hotel chain over the years! I'm sorry to hear that you had an unexpected experience because of the unprepared bed for your little one and the visible signs of usage within the property. As you know, this is not the norm for Holiday Inn Express. Your feedback will not go unheard and will be considered by hotel management when planning future upgrades. It's nice to hear that our staff were ready to help. They go above and beyond to make a difference. We hope that you will continue to use our hotels for your future travel needs. Kind regards, Anna R Case Manager IHGService
