Whenever in a new area I always go to the holiday inn expresses because they are always consistently clean and with good service. This place was lacking big time. Front desk was rude and delayed letting us check in until 4pm when check in time is 3pm. Said room wasn't ready. If you go here just look at the elevator...

I'm very sorry we did not exceed your expectations. We are getting ready to undergo a complete renovation in the next few months, which should remedy the items you mentioned. I hope you will stay with us in the future and see all of the hard work we are putting into this property.

The hotel had friendly front desk staff and she even upgraded me to water view which was nice, but the hotel looked like it was "beat up" in the common areas. Chips in the wall, doors looked like someone kicked them in. The room was nice and clean. The staff had me goto the bar next door for dinner and...

Lady at reception desk greeted me warmly! Third floor room had nice view of the bay. Room was adequately furnished. Bed mattresses were OK, but rather firm. Bathroom was clean and toiletries provided were of high quality. Only a couple of restaurants nearby, but overall we were satisfied with the room . . .

The main problem here was the tv in the next room that might as well have been in my room. The hotel is right on the bay, but the view is pretty much of the highway across it. The employee who checked me in and answered a question later was pretty indifferent - neither friendly or unfriendly and happy for...

Great hotel at great rate. Staff at desk were all very welcoming and friendly.
