Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hawkeye34 Quite Surprised
We were very surprised by the outdoor fun that was available at this hotel...swimming pool, swim up bar, hammocks and plenty of chairs.
The rooms could use to be updated, but they were clean and comfortable.
We would like to go back again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vgcas A nice hotel away from the boardwalk crowds
We only stayed here one night, but most things went very well. We got a room with direct beach access and a deck, which was nice to sit on and enjoy the sunset. There were a few small issues with the room - one we had corrected and the other we just let go, and told front desk on the way out so they could fix it. Room was comfortable and bathroom was clean for an American hotel.
One very nice thing was that the hotel let us leave our car in the parking lot and our bags in the luggage room after we had checked out, so we could spend some more time on the beach. There's even a shower to use so we didn't have to drive home covered in sand. We really appreciated this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LMG311 Pool and Room Amenities Make This a Good OC site
While it's an older property, there has been investment in the rooms to make this a good destination. A kitchenette and coffee maker helps, and there were adequate plugs for all those chargers that accompany the modern traveler. The pool area is a fun oasis--with a pool bar that you typically wouldn't expect to find. There were chairs and hammocks for lounging, or you can walk a few more steps to the beach.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by artistapart Never again.
Quick Version: Needs immediately updating, rooms are musty, beds lumpy, as you can see from other users pictures most things appear patchwork repaired, the shower is off color, the sink in our room drained slowly, and the toilet ran pretty constantly. The bed, while made, was full of beach sand, assumedly from the last guest? Tons of hallway noise-- literally the only redeeming part of this hotel was the attached restaurant which is in no way affiliated with the hotel!
Longer version-I use IHG brand hotels every single week, i'm the highest level of their rewards program. That doesn't mean i'm special, it just means I know what to expect. I asked for an early check in, and extra pillows. Normal check-in is 3. We arrived at 1 and were told the room isn't ready (I get it, some people check out late, beyond the hotel control). I was offered a parking pass and told they would text me when the room was ready (they confirmed my number). I went to sit in the bar not 50 feet from the front desk where they could see me. At 3, the bartender checked for me and was told the room was ready (no text... i had full service and my phone in front of me). While going to my room, the other guests in the elevator had the same issue: promises not kept, Vlad at the front desk was rude about it telling us its our phone service, and surprise- no extra pillows (didn't fully expect it by that point anyway).
The room condition and experience is listed above. I will not be staying at this hotel again, even if I have to select another brand during my next trip.

I confused this Holiday Inn with the Holiday Inn Suites further down Costal Highway when booking but was pleased with everything at this one as well.

I loved staying here!
- For the amount of money I spent, a free continental breakfast would have been nice.
-WiFi was spotty and rarely worked.
-Electric outlets were near impossible to access in the room.
