“Comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a nice enough hotel just on the east side of interstate 95. The lobby was typical of what you would see in this type of hotel, a sitting area, breakfast area and check in counter. My room was on the 4th floor, so I relied a bit on the elevator, which was a little slower than I'm used to, no big deal. The room was comfortable, nice bed, nice flat screen TV, and the bathroom was clean.
What I didn't like about this hotel was that you could not make a left hand turn out of the hotel entrance/exit. You have to go east, through a traffic light and make a U turn. Minor inconvenience, but you could get stuck at the light both times, heading east, and then again heading west. This is most likely not the hotel's fault.
The other thing that I didn't like was that I got locked out of my room. No, I didn't leave the key in the room, I had it, it just didn't open the door. Had it reprogrammed, and again it didn't work. The deadbolt apparently engaged when the door closed. The front desk told me that I would have to wait 45 minutes for maintenance to come in for the day. Luckily someone figured out that there was an electronic box that they could plug into the key slot and electronically disengage the deadbolt. There's a first time for everything.
The front desk people were cheerful and always said hello.

Room Tip: I had a top floor room facing the main road and heard no road noise at all. The hotel is set pretty...

I am a business traveler staying in hotels 50-100 nights per year.

I stayed at this HIEx on a personal trip, though I stay at HIEx often for business (by choice).

This HIEx is definitely one of the nicest (if not the best) I have ever stayed at. Staff was courteous and friendly. Management was also responsive to Priority Rewards questions I had.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting relatives in Palm Bay. We checked in here after checking out of another hotel where the odor of air freshener throughout the hotel was quite strong and very aggravating to my allergies. This HI Express hotel smelled clean and fresh (pets only allowed on the first floor). Holly and PK were very welcoming and extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, furnishings were up-to-date and there was ample lighting and electrical outlets. The only possible complaint - and not one the management can fix - is that you can hear other doors in the hallway closing. However, having the fan on helps to mask this somewhat. We will definitely stay here again in the future!

Everything you expect from the Holiday Inn brand: clean, well appointed, spacious and friendly staff. Nice location. Would certainly stay again if ever in the area. Breakfast was good and wi fi signal in room was very useful.

What else can I say? Large room, very clean, comfortable, pleasant staff -- a small pool -- and a pretty decent free breakfast. Melbourne Beach which was close by was beautiful and would be worth staying an extra day or two. We only stopped for a day on our way to Key West from PA.

My room was surprisingly large, the bed was comfortable, and the desk was accompanied by an executive-style office chair. Wi-fi had a good signal. The free hot breakfast was exceptional -- scrambled eggs, sausage, french toast, pancakes, as well as the usual assortment of breads, cakes, juice, coffee, etc. All the employees I encountered were uniformly friendly and helpful.

This Holiday Inn was very similar to others except for the first time ever it only had a shower.
The hotel was clean and service good. Only complaint was the food at breakfast had a very preserved taste.
