“Georgia Spring Break Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

This hotel location was perfect for business and pleasure. Ulmerton Road was a gateway to everything north and south. We had a fantastic 4 day stay at this hotel. The hotel staff was amazing! The buffet breakfast staff, the room staff, basketball court and workout facilities were more than enough! We're looking forward to staying again!

Room Tip: Excellent room location near Room 122. Access to Pool, Buffet, Office, Elevator, Parking lot and bas...

We got to this hotel at 11:30 p.m, after being switched from another hotel who had overbooked, flight delays, etc. The lady behind the front desk (can't pronounce her name) was seriously the rudest lady I've ever encountered. When we asked for the manager's card to talk about the charges/being switched...etc, she replied, "it's over there, you can go find it yourselves." No exaggerations. The next morning, we went back down to the front desk and had a super friendly lady!

On a higher note, the rooms were very nice and updated. The location was close to almost everything. The hotel itself was great. I guess just keep your fingers crossed that you get a friendly staff member.

The hotel is beautiful, and very clean. The staff are friendly, and go out of their way to ensure you're enjoying yourself and having no problems. The airport shuttle service was quick and saved us a lot of money versus airport parking costs.

The hotel was beautiful. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They attended to my every need. It made my trip to Florida even more awesome. Definitely a home away from home. My favorite part were the beds. After a long day of traveling, it felt nice to sink into them. It was wonderful to come back to see a clean room after the cleaning staff had finished. The hotel property itself was really nice and fancy. Aa definite recommendation to my friends and family. Thank you so much for this.

Room Tip: The pillows/beds are amazing.

Although a beautiful lobby, they should have put some of that investment into their rooms. We stayed in wheelchair accessible room 108. As soon as I rolled in, I was not impressed. Room was only average size and barely gave me the required turning radius needed to get from bed to hallway. The bathroom was adequate but there was no access to the tub to transfer from WC to the tub. Theres nothing like dragging myself across the floor to take a bath. Then there's the clothes hangers. They were lying on the floor next to the ironing board that was propped against the wall. Why? Because there was NO closet in the room. Not even a rod. Really? Come on Holiday Inn, people in wheelchairs like to hang up clothes too. Needless to say, not impressed and won't be back. BTW, when I addressed this with the staff, I received only a blank stare and then the customary apology.

I thought I was going to stay at a nice Holiday Inn - since the lobby looks renovated, but the service and rooms were terrible.

Almost all the rooms are attached rooms, so good luck trying to get some sleep if the next room is blasting the TV or talking loudly. The bathroom had a sagging popcorn ceiling and damp stale stench. The bathroom floor wasn't clean either.

Keep your shoes on when walking over the carpet. It doesn't feel clean. And the chair/ottoman has stains on it. I couldn't sit on it.

The night service was also poor. I called numerous times to the front desk, but they kept hanging up on me. When I finally when I finally went down to the front desk I knew why - they only had one person dealing with phones and checking in guests. It wasn't her fault, but poor management on HI's part.

There are lots of other hotels next to this Holiday Inn, so next time I'll choose another hotel, so long Holiday Inn!
