“Clean, convenient to the Interstate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

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!

jax14fun, Thank you for you time to provide us with some valuable insight. Yes, our internet strength has recently been challenged. We are finding that guests are now utilizing more than one device at a time, remaining on-line longer and capturing more bandwith with larger
downloads. Our capabilities are in the process of a system upgrade to address thee new patterns. We are sorry for the slow connectivity that you experienced. Our restaurant, usually a crowd pleaser, is reviewing our menu specifications for a number of items and truly apologize for the unacceptable quality you were presented. We hope you see you in the near future, thanks again and safe travels.

We have stayed at the Gulfport Holiday Inn several times over the past three years and each visit has been a wonderful experience. The lobby is very well-decorated and striking. The staff is extremely friendly, as well as professional, and if there is anything you need, they are very helpful in providing it. The public areas and hallways are decorated very nicely and show attention to detail. The rooms are attractive and the housekeeping department does an excellent job of keeping them clean and well stocked. In addition, the rooms come with a small fridge and microwave which is an extra bonus. Lastly, the indoor pool is great and provides hours of entertainment for our grandchildren. In summary, we felt at home and we highly recommend staying at this hotel

Room Tip: Walk-in showers are a plus!

I was surprised that they did not offer a complimentary breakfast for the rates they charge. I'm a Priority Club platinum member so I've stayed in a lot of Holiday Inns but I don't remember ever staying in one that did not provide a free breakfast. It cost me 25,000 points to stay one night in a 6,000 to 12,000 point hotel. I was given an upgraded room, but the room was so small I couldn't imagine the standard room. I would of rated it one star but the girl that waited on us at the very expensive breakfast buffet was very nice. The TV channels are sparse and the TV wasn't even working properly and the remote was broken but all that was taken care of, except for the limited channel selection.
There were a lot of drunks in the lobby and hall ways so I had to run the heater fan constantly to drown out the noise. The room I was given was also an adjoining room which I do not like and is in my profile that way.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the end of the hall so fewer foul mouthed drunks will pass by your room.

Very clean, Friendly staff, It had a great workout room. Heated pool and hot tube.

The hotel is located right in the middle of many shopping and restaurant opportunities.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel both the night we arrived in Gulfport and the night before we headed home.

Holiday Inns have come a long way in recent years and this one is wonderful, for several reasons:
1. The entire staff is amazing. Everyone is friendly and helpful.
2. The place is immaculate.
3. The beds are amazingly comfortable.
4. The exercise room has Precor machines. A BIG plus!
5. The shuttle is quick and efficient (and the morning guy driving the shuttle is really nice, too!)

I wouldn't think twice before staying here again. It's truly a gem of a hotel.

While staying at the Holiday Inn – Gulfport/Airport in October, I heard it had just won the prestigious Torchbearer Award, which is given to the top 20 Holiday Inn hotels in North America based on Guest Satisfaction Scores! And the reason is obvious everywhere you look. The staff is friendly, congenial and always smiling. The food in the on-site restaurant so good that I had the same dinner twice. The pool refreshing and the hot tub awesome. But best of all, the pillows feel like clouds of cotton and make for sweet dreams. The wafting smell of popcorn popping in the lobby in the late afternoon made this property feel like a home away from home. Definitely worth a repeat!

We've stayed in a lot of Holiday Inn's over the years and this is one of the nicest. Check in through Priority Club was quick and easy; the desk clerk gave us free drink coupons for the bar and a couple items (candy bars, etc.) of our choice from a 'goodie basket' behind the desk...all perks for PC members, I'm sure; anybody who stays at Holiday Inn chains and hasn't signed up should do so. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the shower was really good; much larger than standard and great shower head with plenty of pressure. The bartender was really friendly and poured a good drink. We had room service breakfast the next morning and everything was good and delivered promptly. The omelets are huge and probably enough to feed two. All in all, this was a great experience and highly recommended.
