    First time we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and was pleasantly surprised with the room. It was large enough, well decorated, clean, and quiet. Breakfast was adequate. For the price we will stay again.

    We have a little companion dog and can't seem to find anything pet friendly. She is incredibly house trained and a great little dog, very friendly. Do you know of anything we can find where we can take Mazy, our Yorkie?

    Will there be a shuttle bus to and from The Hangout Music Festival in May from your hotel? If so what type of schedule will it run ? Also do u have to pay extra for frig in room?

    No idea about the shuttle, but the boarding area for the Shrimp Festival shuttle was not far away. Refrigerators are standard in rooms and do not incur an extra charge.
