I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express last week, just as hurricane Sally was coming across the gulf. From the time I arrived, the staff was very friendly, explaining the current procedures for dealing
with COVID and answering my questions about the storm. Due to what started as a tropical storm and ended up as a hurricane, I had more interaction with the staff than normal. Every time I talked to an employee, they were friendly, helpful and calm. They really made me feel safe and well-informed.
Aside from that, the room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and I enjoyed being right on the ocean. I liked the location because it was close to restaurants, shops and the bridge, but it was on the opposite end of the island from most of the other hotels so the beach was less crowded.
I had to cut my trip short due to the storm, but I enjoyed the time I was there and would definitely stay here again. [Less]
