“Beautiful Sunset and Boating View”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My husband I stayed 2/23 for 7 nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. From check in to check out, our entire stay was excellent. Very clean and updated room with kitchenette was perfect! Sitting at the bar during happy hour and watching the sunset was spectacular. We enjoyed several appetizers but the best was the Seafood Martini with ahi tuna. The bar staff was very sociable and made us feel very "welcomed". The hotel is within walking distance to everything you need...pharmacy, conveniece store, shopping and many fine restaurants. I do also need to mention that a housekeeper decorated our bed with towels that were in the shapes of an elephant and a flower. This was a wonderful touch when we came back to the room.
Thank you for an excellent stay! Cinnaminson, NJ

We stayed here for 3 nights to see the Phillies in Spring Training. It was a great find. We had a 2 room suite.Full bedroom with bath and adjoining room with bath, wet bar, sofa (Sleeeper) lounge, table. We had a vew of the ocean it was great. The Restuarnat is very good and we sat on the deck for dinner and breakfast and it was like we were in heaven. The sinset fromthe desk is something you have to see to believe. The pool area was very nice although the weather was a tad too chilly for me but some people were in the pool. The porperty is right on the water and a couple blocks form the beach. We paid to ride the trolley to and form the game and we thought that was a good recommendation by the front desk.. Parking was a little tight with a fee but enough room for all. Will be back next year for sure.

Room Tip: Ocean View

My wife and I visited this hotel for our babymoon Valentines Day weekend. We reserved an ocenview room (616) and the view was spectacular! When we arrived in the room, we noticed a funny mildew/moldy smell but thought that maybe the smell was coming from the water in gulf. Having a pregnant wife with an aversion to smells can be challenging at times so we always pack a candle when traveling. We went to dinner that night and came back to the room and it was like being punched in the face by the odor. We checked the fridge and looked everywhere but couldn't determine where it was coming from. Luckily the weather was pleasant so we slept with the sliding door open. The next day we spent most of our time exploring the area and we thought surely that when the cleaning crew came, they would notice the smell and figure out the source and take care of it. Needless to say, when we came back that afternoon it was a funk on top of funk smell. The next morning I went down to the front desk to let them know about the smell in the room and they indicated that they would set off an "odor bomb" in the room. We needed to be out of the room for a couple of hours so we went to breakfast and hung out. We returned about three hours later and the room had not been touched. The front desk apologized and asked if we wanted to move to another room. They did not have another room that had the same or comparable view so I declined. They eventually cleaned the room and set off the "odor bomb" Needless to say, it didn't work. This time it was a flower on top of funk smell so we opened the sliding door to get some relief. If the view from the room was not spectacular, I would have packed up and left after the first day. The staff attempted to solve the problem but they didn't. It's hard for me to imagine the cleaning crew not smelling that horrid smell and not being proactive about finding a solution. The night before the end of our trip, we noticed ants coming from the kitchen sink, so we think that the kitchen drain was the source of the funky smell.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for spring break and we really enjoyed it. The location is great. You can walk to the beach and the restaurants. Jimmys restaurant at the hotel was very good and beautiful view right on the water. We saw dolphins right from the pool spot we enjoyed with a great bar and good entertainment.

My family has stayed at this Holiday Inn the past couple years & we love it!! Rooms are very clean, within walking distance to the shops & the beach. Nice pool area with a tiki bar. Large parking lot. Spectacular views.. great for dolphin watching & beautiful sunsets!! The hotel also has a restaurant called Jimmy's Fish House that offers great food, an outdoor patio with awesome views & our favorite server, Trish. She was so helpful with all our questions about getting around the area. She made us feel right at home & we really enjoyed talking to her. We ended up eating all our meals here because it was so enjoyable!! We have plans to go back next month & we will definitely be staying here again!!

Room Tip: We upgraded our room to one with a view & were very happy we did.

We were only here one night with a group of high school band members. The hotel was wonderful to us and was a great place to stay with the kids because it was within walking distance to everything. We enjoyed some appetizers and beverages in the evening, on the outdoor deck, while listening to a guitar player and it was the perfect way to unwind after our bus trip there. We had breakfast on the deck as well, which was delicious. I would love to go back!

My husband and I stayed here from 25th February to the 7th March. The hotel reception was welcoming and very helpful. We used the safety deposit box facility right from arrival, but I didn't get the feeling it would have been a problem, everything seemed very secure. I'm a wheelchair user so to have an adapted room I didn't have the option of a nice view overlooking the gulf which to be honest wasn't a big deal to me, you could see the same view from the pool/bar area. I need a bit of a nap mid afternoon so asked if the room could be cleaned early as the maid tended to be cleaning the room just before 3pm. Again it was no problem, reception got right on to housekeeping and they made sure it was organised. We had some cockroaches in the bathroom and again reception were right on it, so it surprises me to note that in some of the reviews I read before we went, there was lots of criticism them, I really found them to be endlessly helpful and efficient. If I had to find something to grumble about then I didn't like the little plaque outside the room saying "Handicapped Room" and I thought the return spring on the bathroom door was a bit keen. Any else stopping this from being a really good holiday was all down to the cold weather!

Room Tip: The best rooms are on the Gulf side of the building.
