Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrHeff Our 4th visit will be our last
The suite we first stayed in was a very nice, large 2nd floor unit with a king size bed and a sleeper sofa. The ocean view was awesome!
But, the sliding doors to the balconies were very loud when guests opened and closed them. In the unit above us were four fun-loving party people who opened and slammed the doors every few minutes until after midnight!
The next day we were able to move down one floor and thought a good night's sleep was upon us. No such luck - as the folks above us were almost as bad. For some reason every time the people upstairs used the toilet we could here them right above us.
Then just after midnight there was a jerk outside our door talking very loudly. I yelled at him then tried to call the front desk but the button on the phone didn't work.
We used to enjoy Mulligan's but they went up on their prices and changed the music from Jimmy Buffet to an annoying mix of music that was too loud!
We are long-time Holiday Inn travelers. We were planning to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Marathon next March but will not stay there unless we cannot find anything else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Not what we expected
I'm sorry but we looked at previous reviews and thought this looked and sounded a nice place. The only good thing about it was its location. Right on the beach and opposite the best restaurant on the beach front.
We booked one night .with the intention of staying another night or two if it was good. Sadly, as soon as we walked into the room we decided one night was enough. It was dated, the safe had no key yet the hotel would not take responsibility for valuables left in the room (which of course included passports as you can.t book a hotel room in America without ID) which meant we had to take our valuables with us to the beach and take it in turns to go in the water. I did question the hotel about their policies and they said .oh yes, those rooms don.t have keys, the safes were supposed to have been taken out and they offered us a safety deposit at reception but when I took our goods, they couldn't fit them in! We didn't have a basic room, we had a junior suite for more comfort and room for three of us. There was a rather nasty loose panel by the fridge and the room in general smelt musty. The pool had tiles missing from around the edge. Not inviting. OK it only cost $127 for the night but we have stayed in amazing places for that price. Would not go here again.....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cden Needs some work but ok for price
Attended family reunion so price was acceptable. Door was squeaky but staff oiled it. Roach in bathroom. Wood trim in bathroom rotting, outdoor walkway roof falling apart, outside shower doesn't drain - needs a wooden pallet to stand on so you don't have to stand in the mud or walk through the water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler12x12x12 Great Place to Relax and View the Ocean
Hotel staff were excellent with a very caring attitude.
They accommodated my request to stay there even though the reservations online said they were booked ... I just called the hotel and there were a couple of rooms still unreserved.
Upon arrival there was a problem with the bathroom door but their maintenance fixed it very quickly.
The Oceanside View was spectacular ... the beach and waves just a few yards from the rear patio/balcony doors.
Only negative is the Leased Restaurant (not operated by Holiday Inn directly). Their staff and food was not great or even good ... fell way below my expectations ... and ended up asking me to leave. You can read my other comments about them at their website http://mulligansrestaurant.net ... so I recommend eating at the other local restaurants and cafe's ... had a wonderful breakfast just down the street and the Lemon Tree before leaving for the day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ranadana Great location
This H.I. Has a great location right on the beach and a very friendly staff. The rooms are very small w/ way too much furniture (put the flat screen on the wall and ditch the dresser). The attached Mulligan's restaurant is ridiculously priced ($13 for breakfast!); eat at the Lemon Tree one block south. There's a great farmers' market right down the street on Saturdays. Also, bring your own pillow...big, fat pillows only look good. They provide Starbuck's coffee in the room and it's delicious. Easy to bike around and close to several parks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ffoxtilly Terrible Room and average service
Room was awful -- smelly, outdated. Was told it was a pool view and there was no pool view whatsoever. Highly overpriced for the quality. No military discount allowed ....and certainly no benefit to being a priority club member. The room was so bad that we didn't stay. We left immediately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celi Suite was awesome.
the sweet on the Oceanside was just what we wanted. it was clean, plenty of space for us all. Good restaurants within walking distance. Easy access to the beach. There was a down side. the pool was warm and salty..... Yuk! it was disappointing to be in warm, salty water, having a pool in our own back yard at home.
Other than that the stay was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ed2772 HI stay in Vero Beach
Hotel is on the beach. Pool is clean, having the restaurant on property is a big help! The building needs a major remodeling, but I guess they are squeezing every year of the property. The room we got was clean and room cleaning service everyday with new towels, and clean sheets. Staff was very courteous and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights, no complains! I would come back as for the price/value in the area, I think is unbeatable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikeee69 Sunrise hotel
Older Holiday Inn property so it is laid out as a 3 story Motel with outside walkways but it has been updated within the last few years to make it a comfortable vacation or relaxation spot. If you like the beach it's just outside your window. Oceanside rooms have balcony overlooking beach. If you like to hear the waves this is the place. Beach Bar/Restaurant attached to hotel and other venues nearby.
In Vero Beach for business treat yourself to a little vacation time after a hard day, walk on the beach or just open the door and sit on your balcony and watch the Atlantic Ocean.

Everything about our stay was excellent except the resturant the food was very good but the service was so very slow. I realize they don't rely on repeat business alot but the business they have should be of some concern.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve6789 Excellent two day stay.
The room was very clean. It was comfortable with sofa and chairs that allowed us to relax and watch TV without sitting in bed. Our Ocean view was fantastic too. Balcony chairs and table allowed is to sit. Outside drink and just enjoy the beach scene! The entire staff was very helpful, giving us suggestions to places to see at Vero Beach. We will book this Holiday Inn Express Suites when returning to Vero Beach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlee25 Steps to beach not for people with disabilitys
Bath and Room was beautiful, very clean and opened on the ocean.
Unfortunately ground level was about 5 feet higher than beach. There were about 6 steps up to a platform from ground level and then about 10 steps backdown on the beach. Very nice to look at but not very practical as neither my husband or myself can navigate steps with out a lot of pain and we were looking forward to sitting on the beach. 5 steps down we could manage but not 15-16 steps. Instead we watched the ocean from our room as there were red ants on our patio and I was bitten badly when I sat out there.
If these negatives were addressed it would be paradise.
Food was out standing and the help were so sweet and friendly. Even remembering us the next day. Thank you all for your hospitality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joani524 This is a jewel!
This was a wonderful experience. We booked 2 rooms ocean front for our family. We not only enjoyed well maintained rooms, experienced staff and lovely views but the food was amazing.
I would return tomorrow if I could. It was just the best. So much more than I expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wsdeals Relaxing Weekend!
My husband and I decided to take a weekend trip with another couple and thought Vero would be a perfect spot. Since I had points with my priority rewards, we of course looked for a Holiday Inn in the area. When we arrived with our little Yorkie, we were treated so nicely and were given a pool side room that was very clean. Since we had our little one with us, we asked if there might be an ocean side room open up since we were staying Friday - Monday. The lovely ladies at the front desk were able to secure one for our Saturday - Monday stay. IT WAS SOOOO WORTH THE WAIT! GORGEOUS VIEW! I even woke up at 6am one of the days with my husband just to be able to watch the sunrise from our balcony - beautiful! While we were out one day, we called the front desk and asked about finding a snorkel trip - not only did the front desk give us a number to call but she even went on the internet and searched for some other activities for us. Best customer service ever! We will definately be going back to Vero and will stay at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. Thanks to everyone who helped to make our trip extra special.

We were moving to florida from maryland, We stayed at the Holiday Inn vero beach for 2 weeks, The room was clean, staff very friendly .we have 2 small dogs and they made our move and transition easy, we stayed until our new home was ready. Lots of shops and places to eat within walking distance. I highly recomend this Hotel. we will be back for a vacation, loved being right on the beach

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cwlaurie72 Wonderful staff
Pet friendly means that they can basically just stay in the room or on the grass around the hotel- not by the pool or on the beach. The pool needs major maintenance, both of my kids cut their fingers on the pool tiles. It was an ok stay and the staff was excellent but overall I think it was too expensive for what we got. Also "kids eat free" is for Mulligan's- we weren't told that until the end of the second day so we paid for their meals that should have been free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dogguy Nice Break
We had a nice stay beachside and we were able to bring our dog with us. Walked over to Mulligan's for dinner and drinks. Lots of good local shops within walking distance. Staff is good, but property is a bit tired. All in all, good stay. We'd do it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wigarr Prompt Service
Our recent stay began on a rough note when the air conditioner vibration was so loud that we couldn't sleep. I called the front desk at midnight and by 1215 the security guard had checked out another room and delivered the key. My wife and I moved our belongings and were sound asleep by 1245am. We stayed for seven nights and the room was fine and the staff was wonderful. It was a very relaxing week on the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deb1066 Great service and location
My husband and I wanted a couple of nights get away on the beach, so we chose Oceanside. Had a nice room and dinner at Mulligans. Walked on the beach,etc. However my husband unfortunately got sick during the night and only got worse by morning ( was not food poisoning) and I had to take him the ER. It was about 130pm and I went to the front desk to tell them we were checking out due my husband being ill. Asked if it was possible not to get charged for the that night but understood if they had to charge us since check out was at 1100am. They were very nice and did not charge for the that night!! I highly recommend this hotel and will definately go back again...with no one getting sick this time we hope!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vyjak Room was very comfortable, clean, room service was very friendly
My stay was most pleasant, I enjoyed all the local shops and walking on the beach. The pool area was very nice and enjoyable. The dining and menu options were excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. Holiday Inn oceanside would be my choice of stay when visiting Vero Beach. The location is close to everything. I was able to walk everywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russell7 Terrific service and comfortable accomodations
Our family came to Vero Beach to attend a wedding. We chose Vero Beach-Oceanside because it is close to the ocean and there are nice litte shops to browse close by. The hotel staff are wonderful. The food at Mulligan's is awesome. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We also liked that it is a pet friendly hotel, since we brought our little dog with on our vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beachgoer1 Great View
The room I stayed in had a great view and the rooms seem like they are on the beach. The room rate was a bit high for the quality. The walls need some paint and the carpets need to be cleaned but the beds were comfortable.
My biggest complaint was the smell of cigarettes everywhere. The hotel staff takes their breaks and smoke right outside the back lower level rooms. The elevators and garbage cans next to the elevators smell really bad. It just is dirty and unkept outside the rooms.
The attached restaurant was crowded, and the food wasn't that good. The ocean grill next door is pricey but very good and decorated nicely. For the Ocean grill get a reservation early on busy weekends.
The beach area was very nice and the hotel has towels for the beach and pool. The hotel is in a great area close to shopping and restaurants.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HALEYS great location & view
we have stayed here a few times when visiting local family. we love the convenience to beach and/or pool. weather was great ! we love MULLIGAN'S bar/grill. bfast is great & week day drink specials are awesome. our fav waiter is MIKE=excellent service & efficient !!! THANK YOU, MIKE !
front desk staff also cool. in-room WiFi is OK, but a little weak. we only had "Privacy please" sign-they need a sign for door to says "need cleaning". u can get max 4 towels a day. we love sitting in chairs near beach sipping coffee ! my hubby broke his foot on vacation, so ALL the stairs was difficult...w/o an elevator.
our only complaint would be the decaying outside facilities, like holes in hallway floor, dripping water, rust in ceiling-outside of rooms. i know that is due to the ocean, yet other nearby facilities were well maintained. parking is tight also. everything is for compact cars, so if ur car is large=good luck !
