I booked a reservation for the Holiday Inn Oceanide on 21st Street/2101 Atlantic Avenue several months ago. I booked a room for 2 nights - 5/3 & 5/4. My daughter had a cheerleading competition at the convention center and all the hotels were almost impossible to get into! I was relieved to finally find a place that had a room for my husband, daughter and I. On 5/2 I called to find out when check-in was (4pm). I let them know that we were driving from PA, so it would probably be 5-6pm until we arrived. I was told that this was no problem and they would have a room ready for our arrival. Well, when we arrived at 5:45pm, we were told that our room had been given away. Sorry. I asked the girl at the desk where we were to go because we had driven 6 hours and now have no room. She said that the owner/manager made arrangements for us at the 39th Street Holiday Inn -- 18 blocks away! She assured us that we would be given a special room for our trouble... a suite. When we arrived at the 39th Street Holiday Inn, we were put in a 2 queen bed room. No Suite. Our stay ended up being fine and the 39th Street Holiday Inn was very nice. However, it was considerably further from the Convention Center - and it was an inconvenience since our friends and team mates were staying at the original location we booked. I'm not sure if this is typical for this hotel, but in my opinion, it's bad business. If the other Holiday Inn had not had a room for us, I guess we would have just been out of luck. So, beware! If you book with this hotel, even if you call to confirm your reservation the night before, they still may give your room away before you arrive!
