I am a Priority Club member, so I booked a room here with my free night along with a few additional nights. They acknowledged my membership at the desk upon check-in, and gave me a complimentary bag with waters and granola bars which was very nice! The staff was always very friendly at the desk and throughout the hotel--especially housekeeping. The ladies always had a smile and a greeting, and accommodated our extra towel/pillow requests readily and kept our room very clean. They even checked in with us at the end of their day to see if we needed anything else--which was really awesome. The manager left us a welcoming message on the phone, which is a nice touch as it shows that our business is valued.
The room was very clean upon our arrival, with a good amount of space for the 5 of us (we had an oceanfront room). The beds were very comfortable and there is a nice flat-screen TV in the room, which is great because that also allows for extra floor room now. I liked how the sheets for the couch bed are packaged in a zipper bag in the closet and not put on the bed already, as it shows that they have been washed and readied for the new guests. Nice big balcony table and chairs, a small efficiency kitchen with some pots, dishes and silverware were available, and a full-sized fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher. The water pressure in the shower is fantastic, as I've stayed in hotels where that usually seems to be a problem and it makes taking a shower longer than it needs to be. The pool is a nice size and they make fantastic drinks at the pool bar! There are hammocks and a lot of chase lounge chairs around the pool and on the upper level deck, as well as dry seating on the other side of the pool bar. I didn't experience a disturbing amount of kids or people hogging the chairs with towels like I have read in some of the previous posts for this place, but I guess its all in how some people are effected by things as well as the time that they went. But again, I had a nice time at the pool. The beach is great in OC--always clean, which is why I opt to go there instead of Jersey.
I was happy to stay at this Holiday Inn and will be doing so next summer. Its a great location, big outside parking lot (I dislike garages), clean rooms and very friendly service.
