My worst hotel experience ever!

Not only will I never stay at this hotel again, I may never stay at another Holiday Inn (and, definitely not another Holiday Inn “Vacation Club” property) due to this experience. The property is dated and overpriced… but even that I can deal with – the incredibly poor service I received, however, made this the worst hotel stay experience of my life (and I spend about 160 nights per year in hotels – and am a Platinum or higher member with most hotel chain loyalty programs). My terribly poor experience started upon check-in… when asking for a pen to sign and initial the hotel agreement upon arrival, Jola (the front desk receptionist) sneered and said rudely “the pens are over there” – pointing to a cup full of pens farther down on the counter. I could care less that she didn’t acknowledge me as a Platinum member (a standard protocol when staying at any IHG property), I just wish she wasn’t so condescending and rude. And I imagine Jola was laughing over the whole “pen experience” when she assigned the 2 rooms for my stay (I was with family – and reserved 2 rooms) – because she put us in different areas, instead of adjoining rooms, on the second floor – with literally no view. Thus, not only did we not get the standard room upgrades, we were given horrible rooms (away from each other) with no view at all. I booked and prepaid for our stay in advance, and the day we arrived, I happened to notice on IHG.com that the hotel price we paid was double the price if we had booked the day of our arrival (again, had we booked on IHG.com). I did mention to the hotel that it didn’t really seem fair. I understand the purpose of prepaying rooms – to ensure the hotel knows its occupancy rate in advance – but don’t penalize loyal customers who previously trusted the integrity of your pricing. Just because of Jola (your receptionist) and your “pricing games,” I will no longer stay at any Holiday Inn Vacation Club property!

No, I do not recommend this property.

Great location, amenities and friendly service

Nice location, comfortable bed and clean room. My favorite parts were leaving the sliding glass door open to hear the waves while sleeping and the big Jacuzzi bathtub! I highly recommend this location for all ages.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Nice hotel

I said hotel, but the rooms are condos. Full kitchens, washer and dryer shared with one other room. Nice view of the ocean. We didn't do much outside on our visit because the weather was bad. Will go back and see later.

Yes, I recommend this property.

3 rd visit to this hotel

This has been a great hotel and has been our first choice after our first visit. But will not return due to the hard pitch to now buy a Holiday Inn timeshare. NOt INTESTED!!!! Don’t liked being tricked into listening to the sales pitch. Can’t believe Holiday Inn is getting into this dirty business

No, I do not recommend this property.

Not good for a one-night stay

This is a wonderful beach-front hotel, but is not really great for a one-night stay: -- No restaurants anywhere near within walking distance. -- Later than usual check-in (4pm) -- Earlier than usual check-out (10am) -- No bar (though some alcoholic beverages are available in the snack shop
