Erg convenient to restaurants and cruise port

Wouldn't stay here again.

room smelled musty, moldy I got to the breakfast room at 9:35a - sorry 5 minutes too late even though food was still out late night visitors in the hall- loud 4th floor washing machine broken

Nice

dirty bathroom room with bad smell terrible breakfast

Nice and convenient to Restaurants,beach and airport

Blood stained sheets. Creacky mattress or bed frame. Rust and muck around a banged up fridge.

My toilet was broken no tv no air conditioning. Complained and they couldn’t or wouldn’t fix it. This is by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed at.

It was in the middle of everything. The staff was very friendly and my kids loved the pool.

Everything was good, great location, the view was okay

All around amazing experience. Front desk staff is some of the nicest staff I've ever met.

I thought it was very expensive for what you got, just because its a cruise/airport hotel doesn't make it great. Plus we had problem, they were unable to make the key cards (because it was 2/29), which caused long check ins, someone had to take you to your room, every time you went out!

Room was clean, Breakfast was very good. with a nice variety. We waited 90 minutes for the shuttle from the airport called 2 times and were told they were busy. The only reason we ever got the shuttle was because my daughter who was already at the hotel went and found the shuttle driver, she said she was never told to pick us up and she came as soon as my daughter told her how long we were waiting. When I told the desk clerk this all she said was sorry. no explanation or anything.

Good property. Pretty convenient. Staff was great, friendly and helpful. Wish

The name very confusing. This one is the “cruise/airport” Holiday Inn on 17th. Staff unhelpful, shuttle from airport took well over an hour, hotel under renovation (noise,dirt, smells awful...should NOT be rented at those prices!!), room not yet completely renovated and was totally unsatisfactory , and hotel was out of SOAP (guests told to use shampoo!!!). Needless to say, I canceled a future reservation for post-cruise. How NOT to run a hotel.
