10/10 Exceptional

It was perfect!
Our stay here was wonderful! It was the perfect location for everything we wanted to see and do and of course just across the street from the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. I love that all the rooms are oceanview and the view was spectacular from the 7th floor! The staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The pool area was great. Big enough for many people to swim, lounge, eat, and play cornhole. The waiter, Jay was the best! He made sure we were well taken care of...he even had the bartender remake one of my drinks because he didn't think they made it right! The food was good...we had the burger and quesadillas which were yummy! Jay needs a raise because he was the only one serving the entire pool area and literally ran most of the time! I would recommend this hotel to others.

2/10 Poor

Dirty, Broken, and Not Safe
Dirty, loud, and they didn't give us the type of room we'd booked. I have no idea why they'd call this a resort. It's a run down hotel where they do construction in the room next to yours in the morning. We even called to complain and they said they'd fix it but then didn't. It's also not clean. The tub had black stuff in it, the shower head was clogged up with mineral deposits, the floor was dirty, and the ceiling had badly patched water damage. I'm guessing there's mold growing somewhere too because I had a bad sinus headache after sleeping. There's also a restaurant with a live band so get ready to party, whether you want to or not, until the wee hours if you're there on Friday or Saturday. We tried to use the TV to drown out the noise so we could sleep but it wasn't working and they said they couldn't fix it for us. I also did not like the safety issues. Our room had 3 doors on the first floor. One to an outdoor hallway, one to a sidewalk, and one to the neighboring room. I had requested a higher floor when I booked. And I get it that someone has to stay on the first floor, BUT if you're a woman traveling alone, do not stay here. If I had been alone, I would have left. The only thing decent was it's close to a public beach strip (FYI the beach is next to a busy road so you will hear traffic the whole time) and the breakfast buffet was ok. I booked this place because I usually like Holiday Inns and it had good reviews. I can't imagine how it has received good reviews

Great time
Hotel was in a great location, pool and outdoor area was nice. Staff was awesome, front desk, and housekeeping. The bar staff was fabulous, the band was great! Who would think the the bar at Holiday Inn would be the party place! Not outrageous, but awesome for those of us that are 40+

NO GO ON PARKING FEE
Loved the hotel and staff however 8.00 dollars a day to park at the hotel is a bit much since we were guests.
