My husband and two sons, 8 and 11 years old, stayed here for one night. It is a very tidy place, although the pool was very very small and had limited sun coverage. The breakfast which included omlettes and panckes was substantial. However, there were several disappointments. First off, the location is quite a distance from restaurants and the boardwalk/wharf area. You must drive everywhere and there is a lot of traffic congestion in this area on the weekends. Second, upon completing our check in, the desk clerk offered us two small bottles of water since my husband was a member of the Holiday Inn loyalty program. I asked for two more since there were four of us and she replied that this was not possible. I realize this is a small detail, but why lose business over two extra bottles of water. I will always equate the Holiday Inn brand w/ stinginess now and if given a choice will chose another brand.
