    Terrible

    most of the experience was adequate. I am extremely unhappy with both your site and the hotel front desk staff. I reserved a room with a king size bed, I an 6'2" and weight 250 lbs and had a guest accompanying me. The front desk rep told me that your systam sent in reservation for a room with two twin beds. Not a great experience as we are not Ward and June Cleaver and spent the night in separate beds. your rep is blaming the hotel and they blame you. Never had a problem before but should it happen again, I'm done.

    Great hotel stay, good price.

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel for beach weekend in November. The hotel was really nice and staff was great. The location was great right on strip. The view from our room was nice too. I would stay at this hotel again.

    Awesome!

    This was the cleanest of all Holiday Inns that we have stayed at. The staff was friendly and more than accommodating. The rooms were clean, everything worked! The bar and grill was yummy also. Loved the pool and the boardwalk. Location on the front was on the "strip" so there was a lot of action but the back of the hotel was terrific. I recommend the Oceanside rooms for the sunrise views!

    Weak Sauce

    Weak Hotel for the money. Myrtle on Steroids, Drunks fighting in the streets at 5 PM (stoked). Staff was friendly but you can only do so much with what you are given. The room had a smell of smoke or smoke covered up. Also room quietness was not good. We were upgraded to a suite next to the elevator (not good) and we could hear the TV in the room next to us until late. The music blasting in the lobby in the morning was like a Hindu chant or something....totally not the way I want to wake up.

    Hit the Baja Cantina on 23rd. The fish burrito is awesome. This is your normal East Coast horrible mexican (Chi Chis or Tex mex). This is the real deal. California style

    very enjoyable

    obviously recent renovation of the rooms. nice decor. great location. staff friendly. only disappointment was that there was no bike rack. we were advised by the staff and local police should just place bikes on room balcony. became a hassle going in the elevators and cluttering the room/balcony with 4 bikes. worry it will take a quicker toll on damaging the recent renovated rooms too. the manager said he was going to request a bike rack. overall great time.
