Hotels in Florida can became expensive in winter time. This Holiday Inn provides good value for travellers who ventured into this area. I recommend this hotel based on value. Of course there is areas
where improvements are needed. I will touch some points in this review.
First, the hotel personnel are very friendly and the room is very nice.
Second, this hotel is in process of refurbishment in order to meet higher standard, travellers need to give it time to reflect the changes ahead.
To me, this hotel has some problems that they need to address during the refit: first, I think there is constant traffic noise. I think double-glazing French windows are needed to be installed. The current windows are too old and can not effectively stop the noise; second, it is unfortunate that we have a cold front in Florida and the temperature dropped significantly. There is no heater in the climate control unit in the room, which is disappointing.
All that said, I think the value is right for the one night stay. You definitely need a car to go around although there is a mall and lots of restaurants nearby. I am sure this hotel will be stunning and all the problem can be solved after the refit. Maybe I will check it out later this year. [Less]
