The staff was really helpful and friendly. The breakfast each day prepared by Jaci was fresh and delicious. She made us feel like we were eating at the home of a good friend.

We stayed here for four nights during a recent trip to Florida. It was lovely, clean and the staff was so incredibly friendly and accommodating. The hot and cold continental breakfast was wonderful. My grandchildren loved making their own pancakes and the hot cinnamon buns were delicious. The pool was clean and inviting. The room was spacious and clean. The room also had a nice refrigerator and microwave. The second floor offered a washer and dryer for guest usage. 1$ for each a wash and a dry. Perfect for us traveling with two little ones and staying for more than one night. Wal Mart right across the highway helped as well.I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if needed.

We booked 2 rooms (2 couples) months earlier and specifically requested "adjacent" rooms, suites, and upon arrival we were on 2 different ends of the hotel, on 2 different floors. Staff did accomodate and correct where we were at least in the same area. Hotel was in need of updating - signs indicated they were under construction and updating, but I never saw any work being done. 2 out of the 4 room keys wouldn't work. The furniture did have some stains on it, and pillows and towels were minimal. In fact, towels were so hard and scratchy, and small, that they were uncomfortable to use. Been to other Holiday Inn's, and did not have this experience. The safe in our room did not have instructions on how to use, so we had to ask how to use - once we could work it, it was good. On the positive, hotel and area were quiet, newspaper in the morning at door was a nice touch. Breakfast bar and eating area was nice, clean, and quiet. About 15 minutes from many restaurants. If hotel updates and provides better linen service, then I would probably recommend - little things mean alot.

We stayed two nights here while traveling through Florida. I had read the other reviews and was a little concerned about the condition of the rooms prior, but our room was just fine. Yes, the furniture seemed a little dated in regards to style, but it was clean and nothing was worn out. Our room was quiet and we enjoyed the deck facing the water. On St. Patrick's Eve my husband left our vehicle at a restaurant so we could take a taxi home. The next morning he asked the women working at the breakfast area at the hotel if she could recommend a taxi service. Instead she took her own break from work and drove him to get the vehicle. We were more than impressed, and I apologize for not remembering her name.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room with a veranda. The price was slightly higher but worth it for us.

We had 11 rooms for ten girls (ages 6 through 9) and their families for a Saturday night in late March. The rooms were clean, the property was well maintained, and the staff was helpful. The hot breakfast was excellent. The staff allowed our team to use the dining area for an evening birthday party for one of the girls. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with families. The pool is a little small, but we had eight or so girls in the pool and they had a blast. Would like to have ajoining rooms, but minor inconvenience.

I stay at HI Express properties a lot. This one is right there with my expectations for the chain. Hotel is clean, rooms are comfortable, very good beds. Hotel was quiet even with a soccer team staying. Complementary breakfast is good. Location is very convenient right off the highway. Hotel has a decent pool area and guest laundry facilites are available.

Food, gas and shopping all available within 1/2 mile on other side of highway.

The Hampton Inn, next door, was sold out. Now we know why. This is a really a run of the mill HI. They are making changes so if you are reading this some months from now it may be better.
