I reserved a king room for my elderly parents prior to their cruise, I based my choice of hotels on my past great experiences with Holiday Inn Express. I made the reservation online days in advance, and when I tried to confirm my reservation with the hotel, I was told it did not exist. After spending over 30 minutes on... More

Very nice and clean hotel worthy of regular patronage; the location of the hotel in front of the beach is great. Front desk staff were courteous and the utilities in the room were functioning. More importantly, I found it a very nice place to rest. You could sit in your balcony and watch the beach waves, people and cars. Overall... More

The five of us 3 adults, a teen and 12 year old enjoy the wifi, cable tv, gym and the breakfast is top notch. Biscuits, gravy, sausage, fruit, danishes, bagels, cereal, yogurt etc.... More

This hotel is very reasonable for its location right across from the water's edge. You can cross the four lanes of traffic and walk left or right and enjoy the walk and view of the water. Staff are extremely friendly. Room was very nice. Breakfast was yummy. All in all a great place to stay. No issues. Would stay again.

Generally we find little to no complaints when staying at a holiday inn. This one shows a bit too much wear and tear. The service as usual was up to HI's standards. Location was pretty far from dining and center of action. Guess it is fine for families with children. Just across the street frm the beach. Not for those... More
