Recently stayed there for two nights. To begin, it was far away from airport, though they did have a shuttle van. And worse yet, it was way below typical expectations for a Holiday Inn Express. We were given either facing a boat storage concrete lot or another lodging next door, thus next to no view from window. The room was well below average, tight and poorly insulated from noise. Left for the day and returned found our room key cards did not work, and left uncleaned. Did not want to make a fuss, just asked for clean towels and shampoo. Waited forever, and had to ask again after more than one hour. The lady did not apologize for failing to deliver, was very defensive over the phone and blamed us for having the sign up, which was false as we did remove it when leaving for the day that morning. 110% positive on that as we needed to insert the card to the slot. which was empty. When a guy finally showed up, he did not have enough towels and we had to ask for more (we had 2+1). The guy questioned why, and I had to give answers twice. Overall, very bad experience in a poor facility. Very disappointed.
