I stayed here twice in 1 week while traveling to and from Myrtle Beach. Our first stay was great - we were upgraded to a huge suite with a separate living area and kitchenette.

I spent a month here for school. The breakfast was better than Denny's or ihop. If you feel different, you did not stay at this Holiday Inn. The breakfast consisted of eggs, biscuit, bacon, sausage (link or patty), yogurt, juices, bagels, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, coffee, and fruit. There was one staff member who shined above the rest.

On our way back to Canada, we stayed at this hotel for the first time and it was an excellent experience. Polite and amicable staff, impeccably clean quiet comfortable rooms and the very best breakfast ever eaten in a similar hotel. It is now on our favorite list and we will certainly be back.
