This is conveniently located hotel with a car park underneath which is most useful when you are with children despite having to pay extra.
The lobby is nice and the staff friendly and welcoming.
So for those reasons alone I would stay there again.
However, it's tired and in real need of modernisation. The bedroom feels ancient with the bathroom in desperate need for a facelift. The shower didn't work very well either. The carpet is stained and dirty and unfortunately the A/C drips all night causing a nuisance as it makes a dripping noise which keeps you awake! Furthermore leaves a wet puddle for you to clean in the morning.
The biggest advantage is it's location which you really can't beat so for that reason if no other choice I would stay again.

located opposite splash pool and play area on the beach, will please children and adults alike. Hotel offers a great dining experience for breakfast. Staff friendly , rooms clean and fair size, though new coat of paint would not go a miss. Not aware of much noise, considering right on the seafront .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diamondgill Great room with sea view
Excellent position. Very comfortable room, very welcoming front desk staff.
Did not use bar as it is not conducive to relaxing after a full day's exploring in Brighton!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bebs70 Nice room and helpful staff
I didn't know what to expect from a Holiday Inn as I have never stayed in one before. I must stress that I was not disappointed. On arrival the reception staff were very efficient and welcoming. Our room was spacious and with a sea view and balcony, what more could you ask. The cleanliness of the Hotel was exceptional In fact no complaints we enjoyed it very much and would definitely use this hotel again Thank-you Holiday Inn...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stu73 Time for a refurb, better options available...
I've stayed in a number of IHG brands, The Holiday Inn has always been good. This hotel is not a 4* Holiday Inn in any way except by name. While a woman was complaining in reception for the 2nd time in 2 days I felt reception were polite but robotic with my booking and didn't acknowledge my membership.
The room had a broken window lock, cracked sink, broken toilet roll holder, broken wardrobe door and no minibar. Bu the bed was comfortable as always with Holiday Inn. Not the best start to my birthday weekend.
Thank goodness I wasn't paying but I felt I wasted my points, i couldn't believe the rack rate a couple at the hotel told me they paid - they had their room changed.
Invest in staff training and don't just improve the meeting rooms, refurb the bedrooms! There are better options to book in Brighton.
