Visiting family

Needed an extra room. Was able to get them side by side. Even had balcony view. Love the staff. This was our second visit and I enjoy getting to know people. Everyone was so friendly.

Bad stay

Pros: it was on the beach
Cons: Customer Service.
We asked for oceanview and thought that's what we were getting, however when we got to the room, we had a lovely view of the parking lot. I called the front desk, and they said they didn't have any ocean view rooms. The carpet was ripped in spots. But worst of all, we had to leave one day early (we were booked for three days, and have to leave after two). We were told that if we checked out early, there would be a $50 early check out fee IN ADDITION to having to pay full price for the night that we wouldn't even be there!! So, we felt like we were being held hostage - if we left, we would have to pay for the room anyway, PLUS a $50 fee. RIDICULOUS!! I will never stay in a Holiday Inn again.

Older facility on the beach.

Pros: Location was good, nice view of the beach, beach and pool not real crowded, beach and surf was user friendly.
Cons: This is an older property and is tired. Although clean, many areas needed some paint and upgrading. Room linens were of decent grade.
Location: A little removed from the main stream with limited restaurants, shopping and entertainment in the area. The area appeared safe and we had no issues.
Just stayed one night, ate diner on site (food was decent, server was harried), checked out mid-morning. Front desk personnel were courteous and helpful. Room was ready and what we had reserved (Ocean front - King). Room was a little pricy for the condition of the property but it was "high season" and I made reservations only a week in advance.

Great place to stay right on the beach.

Hotel was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and very acommodating. We were very pleased with how everything went. No problems at all. Thanks

This hotel made me feel welcome

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
When I got up to my room the girl at the deck said I had a surf nside view. Which I wanted ocean front but at such short notice they did say they had an ocean side view. Well I was on crutches after taking all my stuff to the 5th floor with no help from the employees I got to my room and I had the backside all I could see was buildings and being unable to walk because i HURT SO much there was know way I could go back downstairs and drag my luggage by myself not even knowing where the surf side room was at if any. Which surfside view is what the girl guarnteed me my room was. I just felt like because of being handicapped I was taken advantage of. I didn.t even get to see the ocean after going that far. By the time I got everything upstairs at my age and couldn,t use but one leg I was very unhappy. And actually that's what I was looking forward to was at least getting to see the Ocean. Also their directions to the place took me all around it not even telling me which side of the highway it was on. I was about 10min away and it took 2 hours to find it with ntheir directions.

Unfriendly staff put a damper on vacation

Pros: Quiet, beachfront location
Cons: Nothing close, front desk staff rude, limited restaurant hours & choices
I recently stayed here and, for the most part, was pleased with the accomodations. However, two things stand out. First, the fronk desk staff, specifically Brenda, were surly and/or indifferent to guests' requests/questions. Second, the onsite restaurant had a very limited menu, was not open for lunch, and dinner selections were minimal, and not especially good. There was nowhere to get food during the day unless the sandwich shop was open, which only happens on Friday & Saturday for a few hours. It was not worth the room rate by any means and I would not recommend this hotel for anything other than it's proximity to the beach.
