So we're traveling to Destin from New Orleans and got hammered in a thunderstorm while on I10. An exhausting experience so we pulled off the Interstate in Gulfport...first hotel we saw was the Holiday Inn. Haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in years but we were pretty beat up and needed to be rescued.
I was pleasantly surprised. Lobby tastefully furnished and clean, staff extremely accommodating and the rome immaculate.
Specifically requested a room that had Internet connectivity...was assured we'd be OK in the room assigned. Well...not quite. Signal was sporadic and weak, strike 1.
Hungry after the ride so we needed nourishment (about 9:00PM). Hoiiday Inn isn't known for their cuisine so our expectations weren't high. Hot roast beef sandwich was below even our lowest expectations...strike 2.
Back to the room to fall asleep watching TV...which didn't work. Strike 3
So...it was a great place to be rescued from the storm, it was clean and the staff friendly, other than that it was a bust. But, if the weather circumstances were the same and we were in the neighborhood we'd stay there again. Go figure!
