“Gulf-view Beauty”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

My family and I stayed in this hotel for Spring Break. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The beach front suite that we stayed in had all the comforts of home (living area, seperate bedroom, full refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, oven, sink, dishes, utinsels). The view of the gulf from our balcony was spectacular. The beach was just a few feet away; whilte the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella was definitely a plus. My kids really enjoyed swimming and watching a movie by the pool. The hotel property was very clean and tranquil. We will stay at this resort again on our next visit to Florida.

As I walked to the counter, i was greeted with a smile. The staff is very helpful and willing to help. Great atmosphere for the kids..lot of activities for them to do. (free popcorn, movie night, karaoke, bingo, etc). I had a balcony overlooking the ocean, which was a few steps to the beach. (complimentary chairs and umbrella) (free parking)
Con: no continental breakfast. the restaraunt inside the hotel is subcontracted out. the food is pricey.
i recommend this hotel that is traveling on business, family, etc.

As we walked in to register, a beaming smile greeted and registered us. As we checked out the two pools (one with a slide; another with ping pong table), the workout room, the tiki bar, and the beach (with complimentary chairs and umbrella), more smiles from friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean, as always at Holiday Inn's, with a balacony overlooking the ocean, a large frig, microwave, and DVD player, and comfy beds. We'll definitely return.

I stayed at this hotel in March of 2012. This hotel was randomly selected for us when we booked on priceline.com. Upon arrival at the hotel, Evelyn, the front desk manager allowed us to check in early and was extremely accomodating and nice. Our room was nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable! The beach is merely steps from any room on the property which is a HUGE plus! There is a snack bar, restaurant, and mini convenience store on site which was amazingly convenient for us since all we intended to do was to relax on the beach. Jess from the restaurant and snack bar was funny and made our stay enjoyable in every way possible.

The only Cons from this trip was that I ordered room service one morning and my order was for blue berry pancakes and a side of sausage which added up to $21.00. With that said, while convenient, the restuarant is a bit pricey. Secondly the main pool was out of service during our stay which left us at a very small pool with several children (which I didn't mind all that much), but the water was as warm as bath water which defeated the purpose of a swimming pool on a hot day in Florida.

I reccomend this hotel to anyone that is traveling for romance, family, solo, etc.

Room good, but too noisy. Balcony needs light switch or dimmer. When you go out on balcony at 10:00pm it feels like daytime. The extras like free movie rentals and beach chairs makes it worth it.

Dear our valued guest;


We want to thank you for the business, and the feedback that you provided us. Our goal is to strive to meet guests' expectations. Your comments are very important to us. The large pool has been repaired right after you left. I apologize due to the fact it was not functioning, and the kids were unable to use the slide. Right, it was a little noisy because we had three sport teams in house. As far as the light concerns, we will consider your sugestions as we continue to improve in the area of our products and service. Thanks for your time!
