Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Hilton Head Island

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I loved the area, but the hotel experience was less than what I expected."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The breakfast was very bad and undone.. I was just expecting more for the money. The room was comfortable, but to have to go down the street for breakfast was a bit inconveniencing, especially in bad weather.

"We enjoyed the property and staff very much!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Everything was great except the breakfast. It was awkwardly set up. No dining in, deck seating was fine, however if you went out there, you could not come back in. Not even for a coffee refill.

      "During my search for a hotel in Cape Cod, my hair started going grey very quickly. Each time I found a hotel, either the prices were through the roof or the hotel was a complete dump. I accidentally called you when I thought I was calling a hotel in the Cape Cod area. It was the best mistake I could have ever made! You took down all the details and specifications that I needed and THE VERY NEXT DAY I had a list of hotels that met my requirements." A.C. - Cape Cod, MA
