“A real surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed here overnight as we had booked the early manatee tour. The staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant. The rooms were great. Just a pity we only stayed one night. I would thoroughly recommend.

My family and I wanted to explore nature this spring break. So when I found swimming with the manatees, I had to find a place to stay. The holiday Inn was very reasonably priced, included breakfast and had a pool. Everything we needed. It was clean, quiet and located close to parks, our tour guide place and many restaurants.

We booked a manetee tour and stayed only one night in the area (regrettably). The staff was very welcoming and helpful, espcially Doreen (if I remember right the name). She was a very charming person and offering suggestions for restaurants and other tours.
Everything was very clean and nice. Breakfast was good with a lot of variety and the buffet was very tidy

Booked this hotel for our swim with the manatees at riverventures.
Good decision. Desk is well organized and really helpful.
I asked for a late checkout and was told that I wouldn't need it for
our event (6:15 tour). We would be back at about 9:15.

To make me feel more comfortable the desk put us on the late checkout list.
What can I say ? Mr. Inram was absolutely right, we've been back at about 9am,
enjoyed our hot shower after the swim and checked out at like 10:30am.

We had 2 QS beds, not very spacious, but still okay.

The staff was very welcoming and helpful at check-in, offering suggestions for restaurants in the vicinity and information about the hotel and area. The rooms were very comfortable with great amenities, large TV, a table for two, comfortable reading chair with a nice light, microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. I was sorry we were only passing through. The breakfast the next morning had a nice variety and the best bacon ever (in fact, my husband was telling someone last night about the fabulous crisp bacon!). Everything was very comfortable, including the lobby/breakfast area. Rooms were very quiet. They even asked for my cell number in case I forgot anything when I checked out. This is a hotel that aims to please their guests. This is definitely worth a visit.

We were here for two nights. Good location when going to swim with the Manatees. Very helpful staff, and good breakfast with a lot of variety.
We were on the first floor, and it was very quiet and peaceful even though the hotel was full. We will definitely stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed here. Great room, good breakfast. The best part is it is five minutes from where we needed to be in the morning. Amanda gave us a great late check out time which let us swim with the manatees and come back and get a shower before getting on the road.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool. There isn't much to see around this location.
