Hotel is dated. Room wasn’t clean well. Found drug paraphernalia in the desk from previous occupants. As well as a wad of hair in the shower.

Checked in to Holiday Inn and within 30 minutes checked out. Toilet was not working due to a leak by water on/off value. Maintenance man came right away and said he told manager to place my room out of service a week ago. Checked out and stayed somewhere else

View is great, right in the water. Hotel is showing its age, needs updating. Beds are comfy and air works great!

Honestly I was very disappointed the AC didn’t work and was super hot. I spend too much money on it , not happy at all. Clean room though.

Great Price. Nice view of the beach. We all had fun would come back again. Beach was great as well as the pool.

Ok place to stay

Proprty and rooms are old. Floor in the room was dusty, bathroom ceiling was a lot lower than the room ceiling. Dirty windows. The person that cleans the rooms left their vape pen charging in our room and left it smelling pretty bad. One of the house keepers was still in the hall so we handed it to her and she said it belonged to another housekeeper and that she would give it back to her. Check in took a very long time. Air conditioner was really loud all night.

The beds were super comfortable and the AC worked great! You could tell this hotel is very old by the worn down carpet. I can see how it would habe been the place to be in the 60's and 70's. Martin the bartender was awesome! Checking in and out took a while... may still be under staffed. No easy way to get to water if you have a knee or ankle injury. Bathroom is no where close if you are drinks on the beach.

I like the location of the property, but the whole place is dirty. The carpet is so old and dirty. There is lots of dead roaches and flies by most entrances and windows. There were fleas or biting knats in the room. We didnt even stay for night after all. We were getting bit by bugs just sitting on the bed. I was afraid to even remove or inspect under the covers.

The view was great.

Loved it was right on the water! Disappointed there wasn't a restaurant open due to covid. Due to covid, getting towels, and such was a little tough, but overall, I would stay there again

The wifi didn’t work and I needed to work from the hotel, but I was unable

If you like drunks and a dirty patch of beach...go for it. It was really bad for the price. 8:30 in the morning someone tried to break into the room. It was a good thing the chain was on...also there were dead fish washing up on the shore and no breakfast included.

Was not what it was advertisws to be very misleading

The hotel itself is OK. There is not much to do in the area within walking distance and the beach was very dirty.

Loved that it was on the water. It was a great room and able to see the water from our room. It was quiet and clean. But was sadden that we had to pay for breakfast. You could have left out cereal, donuts, coffee, OJ, things we could take back to our rooms to eat.
