I have been the the Holiday Isle Oceanfront Resort many times in the past but not since it's renovation. The staff is very accommodating to any requests you might have or questions about the hotel. The ocean front rooms weren't completely remodeled yet, but they will be very soon! You can't beat the location and the staff at the bar,...

This place is under major renovation. There is no lobby and no hangout area. The rooms were clean, spacious and had a great ocean view. But it is overpriced. There should be some discounts for the non-professional appearance of the hotel. I have no idea why it is called a resort.

Thank you for your review. Did you miss our pool and Tiki Bar to hang out at? Please return when the splash park, live entertainment, new restaurant, lounge, and lobby along with new banquet are up and running scheduled to open Labor Day weekend.

The room was clean, bed decent, and they are doing major renovations to this older hotel. The pool is nice, and it is right on the ocean. At this time they have no continental breakfast, but do have microwave and small refrigerator. If you want luxury, pay luxury prices and stay somewhere else. Otherwise, it is OK for the price!

Do Your Research! I am a very forgiving person but I was not thrilled with my experience. What they do tell you: they are under construction, they have no food on site. Sounds okay if you aren't picky. What they don't tell you: All first floor rooms are reserved for families with pets( so if you are scared of elevators...

My apologies that your stay seemed mis-represented. Allow me to explain if I may: All pet-friendly hotels have designated rooms for guests with pets. Ours happen to be the first floor as they are tiled floors to avoid pets soiling the carpeting in the higher floors. I think asking the front desk for a first floor room could have accommodated...

Very clean and very friendly staff period even though the hotel was under construction they were still very accommodating. I would recommend this place highly. Not direct Oceanfront but some rooms has a great View. Ron

We stayed for one night. The room was good in spite of the construction. We used a coupon from the welcome center so the price was good. Pool area was very nice but pool was not heated. Probably a nice place to stay in season.

I stayed at this hotel with three of my friends and we did not enjoy our stay. We were suppose to have balcony and we got there and did not have one. The shower water stayed warm for like two minutes not to mention it smelt like sulfur.

I read the reviews, called the hotel, and they said they only rented the rooms that had been renovated. Obviously we got a room that had not been renovated. There were holes in the carpet.

My sincere apologies for your less than enjoyable stay. All of our staff is trained to explain the condition of the hotel to everyone making reservations and none of the rooms are renovated yet. They should be complete by mid-April. Apologies for the miscommunication. Please do try us again towards the end of May when the renovation is complete and...

Maybe after the construction - which is sorely needed of the ENTIRE place - the hotel will be worthy of more stars. But for now...the front of the hotel and parking lot are a mess, the rest of the parking lot along the sides of the hotel are in need of repaving, the tiles on the elevator floor are broken...
