A child cut her head quite badly in the water slide. Staff member did not seem to care. He handed the family a 1st aid kit and walked away. We left when it didn’t seem anyone was coming to clean the blood on the pool deck. There also weren’t towels the 2 times we went there and the hot tub had scum buildup around the edge. All that said, the room was extremely clean and breakfast was great. They need to work harder on keeping the pool facility clean and providing support when someone gets hurt.

Overall, the hotel was in great shape, the finished and decor are several years old but still felt contemporary, and there was a nice variety at the complimentary breakfast. Our room had several problems though: the bathroom got stuck, and the door also squeaked horribly . The bed was so soft it should be criminal or come with a warning. The first time I sat on it it felt like was being swallowed and sleeping on it was incredibly uncomfortable. Lesson learned, I will sit on the bed before unpacking because I will never pay to sleep on that kind of bed again.

Breakfast is awesome. Rooms are nice. Pool area needs some work. Sporadic Loud noise that sounded like jack hammer (think it was water pipes)

We were told our Expedia reservation had been canceled. We were given a room under new reservation at same price. We needed to leave after one night due to hurricane. We were terribly overcharged!! Why did this happen? No more Holiday Inns for us.

Stayed 6 nights. Bed never changed or made up. Came once in all that time to take away garbage & replace towels. Gave us a Handicapped room & didn’t like it. Toilet & bed, too high. TV, too small. Furniture new but all IKEA like stuff, very cold looking room & no bureau! Mattress was comfortable. Pool was nice & warm. Jacuzzi was hot but jets did not work. Breakfast was good, but same every day. I would not recommend & I will not stay at another Holiday Inn Express!!

The hotel is pet friendly but not contained to a specific floor. The room smelled a little like dog. The pool area was not appealing as it was under construction.
