My husband and I checked into this hotel in April. When we went to our room the air conditioner was on full blast, 59 degrees. We could not get the heater to come on. After a call to the front desk and a runaround, the maintenance man arrived and could not get the heat on. We were moved to another... More

I was unable to get 3 days at Port Royal during Spring Break on short notice, so we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the first night. It is your typical Holiday Inn, clean with friendly staff, but not worth $215 per night (yes, I know it was spring break and I got it at the last minute). They... More

If you've stayed in one Holiday Inn Express, you've stayed in them all. That said a couple of notes specifically about this property: 1. The breakfast room TVs play Republican propaganda (i.e. Fox News) constantly and cannot be turned off. 2. The first floor rooms have curtains that don't fully close, limiting privacy. 3. Staff is more friendly than average.

Kudos to Ruchel Rodriguez, Guest Service Manager, and her staff! My traveling companion became ill during our stay. The housekeeping staff and Ms. Rodriguez went out of their way to help us to deal with this misfortune. The HEI is the closest chain hotel to the beach and one of the newer hotels in town. Breakfast was great, as always... More

Good stay. Liked the location close to the beach. Beds and pillows were good. Not much going on in the area while I was there. But good for relaxing which was the purpose of my stay. Would stay again if in this particular area.

We spent 8 nights here, including during their record cold ice storm. The staff was attentive and helpful. The breakfasts were good. The room was clean and well-maintained. It's conveniently located, but not on a busy street.

My after Christmas "getaway" was unfortunately interrupted by the stomach flu. Although being sick while on vacation was awful, our hotel room was quiet, clean and comfortable and I was able to get a lot of much needed rest. In addition, the staff found out I was sick and went out of their way to try and be helpful yet... More

First I must confess I was a bit leery booking this room but didn’t see any better options. So I made the reservation under the “lesser of the evils” mindset… The primary reason is ichotelsgroup.com did not give this property a “Quality Performer” rating and as a rule I don’t stay in unrated properties because they can be pretty bad....

Six of us who graduated together in 1959 booked three queen suites at the Holiday Inn. It's clean and comfortable, great mattresses and pillows with a very good free breakfast. And, it smells nice and fresh, too. It's only two short blocks to the beach so we walked for an hour or so every morning at 7:30 am. The staff... More
