“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

We go to VB often, and usually try new hotels. Like the most of the oceanfront hotels, all of the rooms at the Holiday Inn Express have balconies facing the beach. The views are exceptional. Hotel staff was professional and accommodating. I like the hotel's decor. The free breakfast was good. They have this new pancake maker that was pretty amazing! In addition to the usual cereal, yogurt, toast, bagels, and muffins, they also have yummy cinnamon buns, sausage, bacon, and so-so eggs. The little omelets were better than the scrambled. Definitely needed seasoning, but I'm sure they cook without S&P to accommodate people on restricted diets.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean facing. You can't go wrong.

Dear Dawn,

Thank you for staying with us, and thanks for taking the time to write a nice review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you note, every room has a private balcony looking over the beach and ocean. The view is terrific from every room.

I am glad that you liked our complimentary Express Start Breakfast, and especially the Pancake Machine. They are wonderful, and many parents ask if they can buy one.

I hope that you will come back and stay with us again. The summer is here and we are ready for our guests.

Thank you again.

Doug

My husband and I stayed 4 nights for vacation. The beds were super comfortable and the showers were exhilarating! Our room had a balcony that faced the ocean and the view was amazing. I especially liked watching the sunrise come up over the ocean. They offer a good free breakfast of biscuits, gravy, pancakes, eggs, cinnamon rolls, cereals, toast, fruit, yogurt and sausage or bacon each day. The location is perfect for walking up and down the boardwalk or walking to the many shops on Atlantic Ave. We found that we could get a day pass for the local bus for $2 a day and didn't have to walk so much.

The staff at this location was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for your business, and thanks for the very nice 5 Star Review, I really appreciate it. Watc hing the sunrise over the ocean from your private balcony is a magnificent experience, I am glad you took advantage of that.

As you note, we are in the middle of the boardwalk and convenient to many restaurants and attractions.

I hope that you will come back and stay with us again.

Thanks

can't beat the location; balcony overlooking the boardwalk and the ocean. Free parking, free internet, reefer in room, breakfast, fitness room all add up to value. Parking next to hotel was small and tight spaces, get there early and leave the car. Fitness room had two treadmills, one elliptical, and a bike, plus a dumbbell rack up to 50 lbs. What struck me is that right off the beach, with everyone tracking in sand, the hotel was spotless. As noted, pool is very small, just for splashing around in. No full-service restaurant in the hotel, but plenty within walking distance. Breakfast was good, with a mix of hot and cold items. Staff was very helpful and fast. Elevators are a little slow, but you can't have everything, can you?

Dear Truck,

Thank you so much for your wonderful 5 Star Review, and thank you for staying with us. We try very hard to keep the hotel clean and attractive and I am happy to hear that you noticed that.

The views from the room's private balcony can't be beat, it is a terrific place for people watching and to see the ships passing by. I am happy to know that you enjoyed it.

Please come back soon and stay with us again. Summer is here and we are ready for you. Thank you

We stayed here for the weekend for the cheer competition. Room was very nice--Bee at the front desk assisted us with getting connecting room. Breakfast in the morning was very nice. The pool is rather small but with us being so close to the beach, it didn't matter much. We would stay here again.

i spent 2 nights at this hotel. i got in rather late on the first night and pretty much went to bed. the next day was spent exploring. the hotel was very nice and clean; breakfast was good. my room was wonderful with the oceanfront room. all of the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. the only con for me was that the hot tub is very tiny. probably the smallest one i have ever seen in a hotel. i did get to use it, though, and it was nice and hot. they take the fact that they are a smoke-free property seriously. which i totally loved. one of the reasons i chose this hotel was the smoke-free policy as i am allergic to cigarette smoke.
