“Great retreat”
Reviewed May 14, 2006

We were only due to stay here for 2 nights in october 2005 having just arrived from the UK!! Unfortunately Hurricane Wilma arrived as well, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. They were extremely flexible with our stay, as Wilma couldn't decide where she was going either. We even said we were staying a 5th night but didn't need to, there was absolutely no problem with us changing our minds!!!!! We had booked a room some time before we travelled but were given an up-grade free of charge to face the marina. We found the rooms spotless, maid service was every day and the portions of food from room service were MASSIVE. Anybody that thinks this is either expensive to stay or the staff are un helpful should visit the UK, then they would see unfriendly and expensive!!!!! To top the lot my husband left all his credit cards behind and didn't realise for some 10 days, however they had been found, kept in a safe and then on our instruction destroyed! We feared the worst but as ever, there was no problem!!!!! We are looking forward to returning really soon, when its not so windy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you like spending time in the relaxing waterfront atmosphere that is florida's gulf coast, then you'll love this place. It is located on the intercoastal waterway, and is just across the street from the beach. The hotel is located right next to several high quality beach restaurants, as well as some nicer restaurants. The bar area is excellent, with a nice pool, and live music. The room was nice, well-kept, and large. The boats cruising along the intercoastal waterway was a nice view from the bar, as well as the boats tied up at the dock located at the hotel. This is a nice lazy place to stay with a good atmosphere.

After reading previous reviews felt give it a try, staff not really interested in dealing with you OK you paid in advance heres you key.

Room and kitchen area ok - but looked on to the decking inside - keep the cutains closed or every one can see in very depresing resturants OK but the hotel was almost deserted - staff in resturant saying we were the second couple in that night and everywhere almost deserted.

Walk to the beach OK but not what we expected whole area area around the hotel seems tired. Would not stop again expensive for what we got.

OVERBILLED BY $1,000. After pre-paying for the room on Orbitz the hotel still charged my credit card and it took two(2) weeks to get my money back.. I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN!!!

After reading several reviews we were slightly apprehensive about staying in the Holiday Inn, but this was unfounded. I booked the stay in May 2005 and was quoted $167 per night, but was only charged $100pn by the hotel group as the price had gone down. When we arrived the room they gave us we didnt like and asked if we could change. To do this the desk staff enrolled us in the priority club and gave us a harbourside view at no extra cost. Okay the hotel in general needs a lick of paint and a bit of an update but for the price you couldnt complain. Only two minutes walk to the beach, several decent restaurants within walking distance, and helpful staff.

My fiance and I were really looking forward to staying at this hotel based on the review and photos on this site but we were more impressed with the area than the actual hotel.

There is only one elevator for the entire hotel and it is shared by staff and guests. The elevator is small and slow. We almost always had to share it with a housekeeping cart which was uncomfortable while trying to bring our bags to our room.

The room itself seemed dirty and we were greeted by a large dying roach in the hallway which made my stomach turn. I was uncomfortable the entire stay because I was waiting to come across more bugs. The private balcony was quite dirty as well, particularly the siding and patio furniture which I didn't feel comfortable sitting on.

The view was nice of the marina, however. We also enjoyed the food and atmosphere at nearby Crabby Bill's, and the hotel is within walking distance to a fairly un-crowded public beach.

While the hotel staff was friendly, I wouldn't stay here again. I found it too pricey for what it offered.
