As an IHG Platinum card holder, I have stayed in their hotels all over the world and without any shadow of a doubt the Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront is their very worst in my experience; you would honestly be much better off staying at a budget £35 a night Travelodge than stay here.
I had a King Sea-view room, you could not see out of the windows given they were so dirty, there was strategically placed gaffer tape to hide the obvious ill fitting windows that were letting in water all over a badly stained carpet; the bed was in need of the local rubbish dump, stains all over the small settee and even the walls. The bathroom had cracked wall and floor tiles, a cracked sink and a leaking shower cubicle - power shower was excellent though - the only thing that was.
The car park is like something from middle earth with pigeons living in between cars, pigeon muck everywhere and my partner said if she had visited alone for business she would have refused to park there given the dim lighting and dozens of hidden corners; no CCTV that I could see of, anything could happen down there and nobody would know; they even have the bare faced cheek to charge you for the privilege.
Hotel reception know quite well the place is laden with issues and stare at you blankly, the GM to be fair offered me a free night when the refurb is complete but given the current state of the place they should know better - telling you a remodel is due soon helps you zero when you are staying there right now.
Avoid, avoid, avoid at all costs and I will be telling IHG exactly that right after I post this!
