We stayed one night here visiting the beach. As soon as I walked in the terrible smell off mildew smacked me in the face! The lobby is beautiful, but the smell takes so much away from it. I could smell mildew in the room as well, but not as strong. Everything else was what I expected from Holiday Inn Express.... More

When I first walked into the property, I was taken aback at the smell of mold/mildew. It's a bit overpowering, but being a beach property I wasn't too bothered about it. Check in was without issue. My room was clean and well appointed, there was no view but I was there for work so that didn't matter. My television sound... More

This was our first vacation on SPI and I am glad that I chose this hotel. When we first stepped into this hotel, you knew you were in a place that someone was very conscious about. The atmosphere was very inviting. The personnel were smiling, the aroma heavenly and the spacious lobby was decorated effectively for a beach hotel. The... More

We reserved a King bed suite/room for 4 nights in July. It was a great experience, and the room was large, bed was very comfortable, and the wetbar area had a fridge and microwave with a sink. Lots of drawer space, and the bathroom was very clean. Get a room higher than the 4th floor, because we could not see... More

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised how nice the accommodations were. From our room we could actually see the ocean. Not only that it was clean and modern with free wi-fi. The shower has a great shower head on it and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. We also enjoyed the free breakfast... More

Nice hotel & close to the beach. The service was great for the price. The room was clean & great size. Staff was nice & helpful. The check out process was a little unfriendly to me. The receipt was slipped under my door for what was charged. Call me old fashioned but I like to check out at the front... More

Perhaps I am just spoiled. Unfortunately, I am travelling much these days. I spend of my nights in Marriott properties, not the high end stuff, but Fairfield Inns, Courtyards and Residence Inns.

This hotel smelled like mildew throughout the entire place. Seemed clean enough until you looked closely at the bathroom. Breakfast was horrible. There were very few items to choose from and the milk was sour.
