Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

As a family of 5 some rooms just are way too small. This was perfect with 2 kings and a pull out sofa bed. Hotel is super clean, great breakfast options with yogurt, fruit, eggs, sausage, pancakes just to name a few . Pool is beautiful and clean. Easy to find parking and close to the manatee snorkeling tours , public parks and restaurants. And smoke free too!! HIGHLY recommend this place~ you won't be disappointed .

This place ticked all the boxes. The rooms were lovely, large and very clean. The breakfast was plentiful with great choice and the price we paid was more than reasonable having secured the rooms on hotwire. The staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful as well as professional. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys good quality at a reasonable price.

This is the nicest HI Express I have stayed in to date. The manager is so nice and goes out of his way to accommodate your needs. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and large. Pool looked very nice but we did not have time to use it. Breakfast was very good. We will stay here again next time we are in town.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one reason only: to swim with manatees. The hotel is very accommodating, they offer an early breakfast and late check out is no problem so you can have a shower and pack your stuff to move on without stress.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. The hotel has won awards and as far as we are concerned they are fully justified. It is situated on a main road about a mile from the centre of town. The hotel car park is large and parking is free.
We received a friendly welcome from the reception staff. Our room on the third floor was very clean and spacious. The beds comfortable with a good sized bathroom including an excellent shower.
The complimentary breakfast was very good with a large variety of hot and cold items to choose from.
The hotel felt comfortable to be in.
We did find it difficult to drive into the car park as the road markings seemed to have been painted in the wrong place, and had to go to the next junction to turn round and come in from the other direction.
