Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DorsetBob Ideal for the Airport
Like all Holiday Inn Express hotels, this is really designed for one night stop overs and, for that, it is more than adequate. It is ideally placed for the airport, less than a 5 minute drive away. If you actually want to visit the town of Alicante, you would do much better to choose a hotel in the town.
The non-smoking room that I had was a good size and clean and comfortable. It did have a, sort of, sea-view, although obliquely and with a good part taken up by the back of the Ibis next door! My only criticism was the choice of TV channels. The list in the room included BBC and CNN, but they certainly were not programmed into my room's TV. The only stations with any content in English were the Disney Channel (yuk!# and a Discovery channel.
The "Great Room", that houses reception, the bar and the restaurant is somewhat soulless, with the layout of the restaurant tables being reminiscent of a school canteen. The staff, however, were very polite and friendly.
The buffet breakfast is adequate with rolls, slices of ham, cheese and spiced meat, cereals, fruit, small croissants etc and a machine for endless coffee. Thankfully, on weekdays it is available from 6.30 am.
If you are an IHG rewards member #it's free to sign up, so what have you got to lose!# you get free Wi-Fi in your room.
I expect that I will stay here again when I have an early flight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grapow This is always excellent value!
We simply love spending as many evenings in Alicante City Centre as we can, as its home to our favourite restaurant anywhere (El Portal).
Having a very affordable hotel, such as Holiday Inn Express simply increases our chances to enjoy this wonderful (and relatively) un-discovered City!
