As an IHG Spire Elite member I usually choose an IHG property. This hotel was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. I always look for attractions and restaurants that are frequented by the locals, and the staff here made some great suggestions. The only reason I did not give a "5" is that the room showed signs that the...

We wanted stay in a nice oceanfront Hotel before our cruise but this place was horrible. The first room they tried to give us was full of bugs. ALL OVER THE PLACE! Running all over the walls and on the balcony. It was unbelievable. We requested another room and when we woke up we were bit all over by BED...

Found this hidden gem on the internet. Great price, clean, heated pool and direct access to the beach. Great check in experience, we liked the location, because it was close to our favorite places to eat. We ate at Waterman's, The Grotto, and the Mosquto Cafe, oh yeah and the Spot. Easy access to all

The hotel is an older property with tile floors that make luggage with rollers extremely loud. Too much outside noise with room balcony facing the pool; especially at night with loud pool frolickers and outside bar. The toilet ran all night, the AC broke down, and coffee for the coffee pot was forgotten on the 2nd night. All issues were...

I staid with my wife with points from our IHG program. This property is very old but well maintained. The room I had was much smaller than most Holiday Inn properties. We did have a view out over the Gulf, so that was nice.

This was our 2nd time to stay here before leaving on a cruise. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly. One problem with the rooms: the door face north and the doors are not sealed well. The wind whistled all.night.long. My wife took several towels and wedged them around the door to cut down on some of the noise. Our cruise...

Alright hotel, nothing spectacular-older property and even though they tried to make updates, it still has that old feeling. Standard sub par buffet breakfast. We stayed before a cruise to take advantage of the extended parking and free shuttle. The shuttle to the pier was fully booked until late so we ended up getting a cab after all and had...
