Perfect location on the beach!
The pool, hot tub, restaurant, beach shower, and access to beach
are wonderfully situated.
There is a constant breeze at the pool off the ocean.
View of ocean from the above is perfect.
Recommend this hotel to everyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SQLGuy Nice beach hotel tucked in a beautiful neighborhood
Stayed here over the Labor Day weekend and had a both a relaxing weekend and an excellent time. We had a problem with our reservation (which I caused) and the hotel made sure we were taken care of without question by a front desk gentleman that helped us very much. We ate at the restaurant several times and had great meals every time. If you get a chance, stop by on Sunday for brunch. Its a wonderful spread. Add the beach and you are in for a wonderful time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Total Relaxation
If you want a quaint place to stay where you can rest and relax by the pool or on the beach, this is the place for you. Our objective was to park our car when we checked in and not see it again until we checked out. Mission accomplished. We arrived in our bathing suits and left the same way. Friendly staff, clean hotel, comfortable beds and bedding. Nicely decorated. Great huge shower. The frozen pina coladas were the best (although steeply priced at $8.50 each). Since we never left the hotel, we ate all of our meals at their sensational restaurant. The onion soup and stuffed portabello appetizers and macadamia nut crusted grouper were absolutely delicious. Peaceful walks on the beach made for a romantic weekend for me and my wife (in celebration of her birthday). We highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing getaway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Milani Didn't like this place
Small rooms, ugly and dirty beach, loud nights due to being able to here people talking outside at night because they have chairs to sit in outside. Not a place to relax but you can party well here.

Everything was great. Food service was excellent, I had a problem at the bar because the drinks were poured with very liitle alchohol, Also in my room the shower water pressure was very week. Aside from that all was great, from a great check in to check out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dbinjax Not Impressed
The front desk "manager" was very rude when I asked if she could charge my phone behind the desk. My toilet overflowed, and when housekeeping came to plunge it, he removed the dirty plunger from the toilet and carried it out of the room dropping "stuff" all in his path as he left. There were also ants crawling around bathroom and his response was "their always here". WOW! Needless to say i was not happy having to clean a floor in a hotel so that i could get ready for work. It was very disgusting! I called the front desk to advise the manager, but this time I was told they were not available until tomorrow. I was disappointed in this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ethknh Great amenities, Staff not so friendly
We stay in this hotel with a large group of friends with our kids.
The hotel is clean, comfortable. We like all the amenities - pool,
Breakfast is delicious and staff is great.
The down side that we all feel needs improvement
Is the friendliness of the staff. The cleaning staff
Never greets you at any time of the day. The front
Desk (certain staff members by all) need a class in
Hospitality management Not friendly at all, it's like they have
No personality. I would have given them a higher rating
Don't be discouraged - That doesn't spoil our fun though

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RAYLIB62 Great Getaway For An Extended Weekend!
When looking for a weekend getaway we choose the Holiday Inn in Highland Beach because it's a cozy environment with the beach right at your feet. We've stayed here on numerous occasions in the last 14 years. The food here is excellent with a wonderful Sunday Brunch. We always ask for Roberto during breakfast and lunch because he's friendly and efficient. Our favorite rooms are on the first floor, ocean view because it has the chairs and chaise lounges right outside our bedroom door. We wil return next year!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ad23 Not what I hoped
I stumbled on this location while looking for a close to the beach spot by way of my rewards club. Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised to see where it was, I had envisioned more of a boardwalk atmosphere, as I had not been to this part of Fl before. To my dismay, however, the pleasant surprise disappeared. I found the hotel, though with potential to be lovely and charming, outdated and even dirty, with bugs in the room. While two female members of the front desk staff were somewhat pleasant, I also experienced rude and dismissive interactions with two of the male front desk workers. These two actually made me feel as if I was an intrusion into their life for asking questions. I was made to sign for pool towels and sternly told that not returning them would amount to a room charge, yet each morning when I would sit on my balcony, I saw dozens of used towels left behind at the pool. I doubt all those were charged to a room.
This place has great potential, but the staff is in need of an attitude adjustment and the facilities need updating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SQLGuy Very Nice but Staff Could Use an Upgrade
Stayed here over a weekend while traveling for a conference. My wife indulged in the pool and beach areas and was very satisfied with this little hotel tucked away amongst multi-million dollar homes. The restaurant and associated room service food was very good. There were many families there as should be expected for a beach hotel so don't expect a romantic getaway unless your dream vacation somehow involves dodging children in the pool. The staff at the restaurant was okay to deal with but the front desk personnel left a lot to be desired although if I had to deal with people in that manner, I'm not sure how pleasant I would be either.
Overall, a very nice hotel that is a little dated but has a great restaurant and awesome location.

Since this was a business trip I did not get a chance to enjoy the hotel. The room was clean and the view from my room was great. The pool as I passed it daily looked very inviting. If in the area again I would probably stay at this location again. I wish they had more than just one free drink for a Platinum level member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCGaBulldogs Great room. beautiful view, awesome experience
We recently stayed here as a getaway from the children for 2 days. Our room was spacious and clean. The view of the ocean was spectacular, we kept the doors open and listened to the waves crashing on the beach. The staff was very pleasant. I would recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone wanting a great place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Firstbabytrip13 Excellent View, Service, Ok Decor
This hotel met our expectations for the price. Hard-to-find a view like my wife and I had on a private balcony this close to happening Delray and Beautiful Boca Raton Florida. The bartender Klause offered exemplary service,and a few of the staff members went above and beyond for our needs. The pool and fitness rooms were both well-kept. Only negatives I can say about this hotel may be the decor. The person in charge of this should take lessons from Indigo and some of the other area beach hotels. Overall, satisfying stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The Best There is in Beach Hotels!
This is a marvelous gem and there are none like it. Beach front rooms have beautiful views and even a porch and chairs to enjoy. We go down and listen to the waves of the ocean at night from our room. What more could you ask for?
The restaurant is lovely and the food pure and excellent for the same price you would get elsewhere and not even get to dine on the beach. We also loved the dining area outside too.
The staff is very good. Very cheerful and happy to be working there. They love their work and it shows.

We only stayed for a day but it sure took off a year's stress - It was the most relaxing, less commercialized a heaven on earth stay for us. I regretted that the last few years we travelled to Mexico resorts which have become so commercialized, but this was an exceptional place where one can forget that the world does exsist. I look forward to visit it on annual basis for our vacation time. Thank You Holiday Inn Staff from your Manager, Front Desk Staff to your Waiters and Room Service Staff for the excellent stay and look forward to my next stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Greatest secret of South Florida
This is a great place.
Right on the beach. 3 pools (regular, kiddie and hot tub with fountain).
The rooms are nice. Love the mini-fridge.
Would like a microwave.
Main attraction is beach, beach, beach.
Beach is great. And right there! Just walk out the back.
Pool view is semi-ocean view which was also excellent.
Rooms are nice enough for the price.
Could clean the AC filter.
Cleaning staff didn't speak much English. But they were very friendly and always helpful.
They give out beach towels at the front desk. Loved that it is the honor system and didn't have to check out / check in towels like library books.
Need room key to enter any side doors. Annoying but safe. I prefer safe.
Safe in the room worked well and fit laptop, iPad, wallets and other valuables while at beach.
Should have better TV. Panasonic? Should be LG.
Coffee-maker is in the bathroom. Who makes food or beverages in there?
Fridge is next to bed and big open space in cabinet under TV. Probably upgraded and new fridge didn't fit in old space. Should add drawers to cabinet. Wasted space.
Elevators are slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GNOO Excellent Location ,Hotel and Restraunt
We stay here regularily and love this place. The location is fantastic on the Atlantic Ocean with the Intercoastal just behind the Hotel and situated also between Ft.Lauderdale and West palm Beach. The staff are friendly and take care of your needs and the housekeeping is very good and clean your room really well. The restaurant makes great food and breakfasts overlooking the ocean are wonderful as is the Sunday buffet.
You wont be sorry if you stay here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NJchick Mixed feelings, but overall a nice place to stay
We enjoyed the convenience of being steps away from the beach, but we found the hotel's beach area to be dirty with debris. There was a garbage can at the end of the steps leading to the beach, and on our second day when we arrived in the morning, the garbage had not been taken away and there was loads of additional garbage around the garbage can that was overflowing. This was off-putting. It was cleaned up shortly after we arrived on the beach, but still not what you want to see on vacation. It was also disappointing to learn that we had to pay $30 a day to rent two beach chairs and an umbrella. Not what I expected while staying at the Holiday Inn. Nevertheless, the hotel itself was clean and well kept and the staff seemed courteous. The only other gripe I have with this hotel is the one restaurant on the premises. The prices were quite high - again not what I expected for a Holiday Inn. That being said, the great room rate and location of this hotel made the stay worth it.
