Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 153 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Surprisingly pleasant Cute, historic hotel with good location, comfortable, close to shopping August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Central Location, great room and extremely helpful staff While we only stayed one night, we could not recommend it more highly. There were three in our party, and the room was very spacious and up to date with two queen beds and lots of space. The staff were very welcoming and helpful in allowing a later check out due to illness in our party. We were able to walk to the beach and restaurants from this convenient location. Only negative, is that there is a charge for parking considering the price of the Hotel. This is also unusual for Holiday Inns. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location Alot of Noise The front checkin staff was superb. They were friendly, courteous, and treated us like valued customers. The breakfast food was good, and the location was superb where we could walk to our destination. The only bad thing was the noise from the bar across the street until 2 am. We were given a room facing the bar. It was very noisy and we did not get much sleep. Unfortunately we did not tell the front desk until the following morning. We thought is was such a hassle to change rooms at 1 am. In the future, I recommend that the staff warn customers about the noise. They could also derate the cost of the room to reflect the loud noise. August 25, 2014
