I had a reservation at a different hotel but after reading horrible reviews I cancelled it and thought I would try Holiday Inn. I am sure glad I did.The hotel is right across the street from the beach and from our 5th floor balcony we had an amazing view. My son and I were able to see dolphins swimming on the calm days from our balcony and one day a manatee was swimming by shore which was amazing to see. We did get to see sea turtles and lots of birds as well. The Swimming pool was a nice size and Debbie was our bartender and she sure was pleasant and a hard worker. Food was good, price not too bad considering its a hotel. Our room didnt have a microwave like the hotel details said but the updated room was nice. We also enjoyed the short walk to St Armand circle. I walked the beach everyday and watched the beautiful sunsets from the hotel. This is a place that I will have me coming back.
