We were attending a music festival at the bar/beach across the street and the Holiday Inn Express was perfect for us. Our flight arrived at noon and we immediately went to the hotel to check in knowing we were earlier than the 3pm check in. The desk staff informed us that since we were early there were no rooms made up but he would call when one became available. About 90 minutes later the call came as promised and we were able to check in early.
The room itself was just what you would expect from the HI Express - very clean and comfortable.Unfortunately we had a view of the parking lot but the other side of the hotel has a great view of the bay. The complimentary breakfast was exceptional - plenty of selection of both hot and cold items. And with a location close to the airport they even offer bagged breakfast to go for those with an early morning flight.
I would also like to compliment the hotel shuttle driver. Even though our music festival offered shuttle service to and from the beach the hotel shuttle driver offered to take me to the concert one time when he was between runs.
We will definitely stay there again.
