“Just basic”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

My first visit to Khobar. I stayed here for three nights. No problem Checking in and out. Rooms are spacious and clean. All basic toileters are provided. I dined in their restaurant only once for Friday's brunch. The signe said it would open at 12, but they were not ready till 1:30. The food is just ok and service needs improvement.
My biggest disappointment is the location. The hotel is about five minutes drive from Aldhahran mall but nothing else in the area is interesting for people who are visiting Khobar for reasons other than business. I had to take a taxi drive 20mts to see other more interesting areas. If you are looking for leisure and relaxation I'd recommend Sofitel hotel. It's the only one that's directly on the beach but it is double the price. Le meridian is on the corniche too but not on the beach. The corniche area is much nicer and more civilized.
Tip: Ask staff to turn on wifi router for your room.
Hotel taxi is 50 sr anywhere you go in Khobar, 135sr to airport. Grap a taxi from the street and it is half the price at least.

Due to an urgent business trip cut short my vacation and I stayed at the hotel with my spouse. On one of the evenings, while I was away and spouse was alone, someone had kept knocking the door for 15 mins. Next day very early in the morning someone tried to enter the room using the key card! Was safe due to the security chain on the door. Hotel apologised but the reasons given were vague and not acceptable to any decent standards. For family trips from safety point of view it is terrible. Kind advise, stay away if possible.

They are rude in general and if you dare to call them they will hang up wile talking because they don't know English!
Do not consider this hotel for your stay. Definitely will regret!

I am a regular customer of this hotel. They do have very clean and sizable rooms. The room rates are reasonable. Their location is suitable for visiting the Dammam city, both also they do have a good access to Khobar, Dhahran and Jubail if you need to .... Mall of Dhahran is 10 minutes away. The quality of the food in the hotel is also good.
Their service is consistently fine over the years and they do have a high rate of returning customer.

Room Tip: Rooms looking indie the building are quiter.

i keep going to the hotel frequently for business reasons. it is small , kozy and clean. Internet is free. hotel GYM is basically two rooms and it is very poor. hotel is good for business travelers but not family friendly due to ongoing business meeting and training courses.

Horrendous experience at this hotel, Despite making a reservation a month before arrival and calling the hotel 3 days before to reconfirm - NO room had been allocated on my arrival at 2.30pm. After 20 minutes at reception with NO apology i was given a TWIN bed room that was filthy dirty and still occupied by the previous guest.

Went back to Recption and told to wait 3-4 hours for a room to be allocated as they were fully booked.

As a Platimum Ambassador member, this is NOT what i expect from Holiday Inn, especially when the receptionist tried to make it my fault for arriving TOO EARLY to check in.

NEVER AGAIN will i stay at this hotel, staff were NOT interested in trying to resolve this issue and NO apology was given for any inconvenience caused.
