"Great Place to Stay Near the Beach & St. Armand's Circle"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The hotel was very clean, staff was great and the location of the hotel was perfect. Steps to the beach and a short five minute walk to St. Armand's Circle. We will definitely be coming back!

"Not Good"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I stay at this hotel for three nights on the fifth floor. The hotel only had one elevator that worked during our stay. There was no water pressure on the first night and then we lost water on the second night and when the water came back on there wasn't enough pressure to take a shower on Thursday morning. They also had the inside stairs blocked off where you couldn't use them. The A/C wasn't working in the front lobby Wednesday thru Friday morning. The hallway smelt like old cigarette's smoke. When I checked out Friday morning the girl at the front desk said they had taken one night of stay off along with the resort fee's. They never did. They had no Breakfast for the prices they charge. This has been the worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in and will not be back.
