What a great room, suite. Very spacious and clean. Hotel staff friendly and accommodating. Beds had crisp, clean sheets and were very comfy. Bathrooms were nice and large and shower had good water pressure.

If you like hearing babies crying, the pitter patter of children's feet running up and down the hallways at all hours, and doors slamming every 15 seconds this is the place for you. I've stayed here twice and this place is very "family friendly." If you need a good night's sleep for business you should probably look elsewhere. The staff...

Torn about this property. Great location, excellent service and nice recent remodel. But...I judge a stay by the two things I use most in a hotel, the bed and the shower. I found the mattress particular unsupportive and uncomfortable and the shower to be below standard in water pressure and cleanliness (was updated much in last remodel).

This Holiday Inn is really gorgeous, when you walk into the lobby you are greeted by a waterfall piece and the front desk associate could not have been friendlier. She immediately recognized me as a IHG Rewards Member and the check in went very smoothly she was very friendly and professional, I wish I had gotten her name. The room...

After check in, I had friends that had driven up almost an hour to see me, and we set in the lovely lobby lounge area, that had a beautiful waterfall, leather couches, lots of comfy chairs. Had a lovely visit there. My room was a wonderful clean, king size bed, that made you drop right into dreamland. The bathroom and...

My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway. Our room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was a bit outdated. The pool is a good size and the hot tub sits under a nice pergola. They did not offer a free buffet but rather a voucher for $20 at their old-timey restaurant. Ordering off the menu was much...

This is expensive, but a nice place to stay. Plenty of parking. Good looking lobby. Friendly service. Clean and cute rooms. The water pressure is great which I have noticed is lacking at many places in Florida. We added breakfast for a modest fee. The breakfast is good and has what you can expect, but I found the service not...
