“Probably now a yearly family getaway”
Reviewed July 13, 2006

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, and my kids and I loved it. We had the pricey $200 marina-view room and it was well worth it for just a night. It has a large upstairs loft with a queen bed, a big TV and a connecting bathroom with a shower and whirlpool bath. Downstairs was a full kitchen, a dining area, a big pullout couch in front of another big TV and nice wooden balcony overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway. There are 2 pools, one regular (but good and clean) and one big kid-friendly pool with mushroom waterfalls and small slides. It also has a small kid's play park next to the pool, and there is also a cool game room complete with game tickets and prizes to win. The restaurant and bar area was nice (but pricey too) and all of the staff were VERY accomodating. The public beach is located only a block and a 1/2 away just across Gulf Blvd. but the walk was safe and easy, plus there's a CVS on the way to the beach for that oops-I-forgot-to-pack-something situation. It also beats the HECK out of trying to find a rare spot to park at the beach. I think we'll be making this a family tradition while the kids are young enough to care!

We stayed two nights at this hotel and loved it. The only thing we learned is to book a bigger room the 2 queens room is half the size of other hotels. I had to iron between the bed and bathroom in a hallway because there was no room anywhere else. The employees were helpful and kind. We would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for our last night in Florida. We had been in a villa in Disney for 2 weeks and wanted to spend our last night near the coast. I had read a few reviews on this hotel and was not sure what to expect but chose the holiday inn as it's a name we were familiar with and I am in the priority club. We were not disappointed. There was ample parking and our room looked out onto the waterway where the motorcruiser were moored up for the night. As a family of six with the in laws coming along as well we had booked a suite and a double room with sofa bed. They upgraded my in laws free of charge so we had adjoining rooms. The room had everything we needed. As were only stayed one night we didn't make use of the fridge/dishwasher etc but the double sofa bed was great for the kids and they brought a cot for the baby as soon as we called reception. We got free drinks tokens and free breakfast as priority club members. There was entertainment where the kids were quite welcome and food served late. There was also a games room which kept the kids happy. It was also very close to the beack which was great. We actually wished we could have stayed longer.

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.
