Stay during the off season and the staff was great and nice. Even met some foreigners in the lobby, made the initial check in fun. Room was very clean and quiet. TIP, sign up for IHG rewards and earn points cause I'd go back, why not. Pool outside, free breakfast and walking distance to the beach. Scratch the resort scene!

This was the first time we stayed on the island in 20 years. We are glad we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It was a great stay! Just 5 blocks from the beach. Very nice room and awesome pool & hot tub! Excellent breakfast!

A very nice and updated hotel, about 5 minutes to the beach. I stayed during the week and the pool and all amenities were always available and in working order. The breakfast area was always clean and the self-service buffet was stocked with all options: breads, juices, a hot option that changed daily, and cereals and yogurts. Coffee and teas...
