We were visiting Hilton Head Island for a girls gymnastic competition and didn't need a "resort" experience (or cost) so were pleased to discover the Holiday Inn Express. I wish I had come to TripAdvisor to read a few of these reviews to find out about the separation of the

The hotel is conveniently located near the beach and near restaurants and shops. We chose the hotel because of its location and reasonable cost. I was pleasantly surprised by the modern appointments in the room and how the hotel is tucked back in the woods.

The "lagoon view" rooms offer a view of a small, man-made water feature with a little fountain in the middle that runs during the day. Beyond this "lagoon" is a road and another hotel. The rooms lack water pressure. One of two rooms had a toilet that became unseated from

Not at all! We basically parked and walked or bikes most places but we did use our car to do a few tours and to travel one day to Georgia.

Have there been any issues between guests and alligators? Heard there is one on premise.
Hi Valerie, In the coastal regions of South Carolina, there are 10's of 1000's of alligators and are great assets and wildlife balance. The alligator that hangs out in our lagoon has not injured or attacked any person for at least 10 years on record. The state of South Carolina provides specific General Statutes and laws regarding feeding or harassing alligators or turtles and these are the warning signs that are posted along our lagoon. Because our guest respect these signs and do not feed the alligator, it does not run up to people. In these cases throughout the island, aggressive alligators, the SC National Wildlife game warden will come and remove the alligator to repopulate in nature. I hope this sheds some light on your question Valerie and many of our other future guests. Jay Robertson General Manager

Hello, I apoligize about the delay. From the rooms, walk on the little road that leads back to the registration building. Turn left on that main street, walk a block or two, to the traffic circle, and turn right before the circle, go across the road, and keep going by the shops there, and there is an entrance to the beach. I takes about five minutes to walk to the breakfast room. I did not shop there, so don't know about that.

"Try for someplace nice"
"The Lagoon Side is lovely if you are into views but all rooms offer the same amenities."
"None in particular."
"One side looks out on ponds and pool. The other side looks out on parking lot."
"Best views are pool view rooms."
