“great accomodations for cruisers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Clean, comfortable rooms, great breakfast and reasonable shuttle to cruise port.
Extremely handy since port is congested and you can leave your car at hotel.
Staff at check in were accommodating and efficient

The availability of a hot and varied breakfast in the morning as well as hany shuttle to cruiseport was an added plus.

Danelia was very helpful in checking me in. Very thorough in her presentation to me and made me feel very welcomed. Her customer skills are evident she gets and excellent rating. I learned a long time ago that People are not excellent because they achieve great things. They acheive great things because they choose to be excellent.
Thanks for the good service.

Room Tip: The whole hotel is great.

This hotel was perfect for us after our cruise. Free shuttle to and from the airport as well and even free shuttle to the Crown Plaza for dinner with a free drink coupon. Nice rooms with a pool.
Beds were great. No complaints here and Alejandro will take good care of you.

Room Tip: If you are on the 5th floor you can see the Allure/Oasis in port.

I had a quick one night stay at this hotel on a business trip. The rooms were surprisingly large and comfortable. I initially was concerned that I might here either airport or street noise, but it turned out to be really quiet in the room.

Check in went very smoothly and I easily found my room. Rooms were well equipped with TV. coffee maker, microwave and fridge. The wifi signal was excellent on the third floor and I had no problem connecting. My room was very clean and arranged well.

Breakfast was the standard Holiday Inn Express food. Everything was available in ample supply and the staff kept the breakfast room clean.

No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

The room was spacious and modern. The bed was very comfortable. This is a very good hotel to stay in, especially if you are going on a cruise. They have a stay-and-cruise package that will save you a lot of money over the cruise parking garage. With this package you also get a shuttle ride for two to the cruise terminal. They also have a hot breakfast. The hotel is very good overall and the staff were very helpful.

First of all, the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. No issues with them. However, the room was a disaster area. The bed is very soft and uncomfortable. It sits on a metal box support thing so every time we sat or laid down on it, you'd hear this metal clanging sound. The air conditioner is extremely loud and hard to adjust. The cabinet that the fridge/microwave sits in is a hazard to your health. Literally! It sits into the walkway and when I got up during the night to use the restroom, I ended up walking into it. So now I have a red line where the edge of the cabinet scraped me and a huge bruise (about 1 1/2" round) where the corner got me. My arm is so sore, I can hardly move it this morning. It needs to be moved to a safer place! I will never stay here again.

This Holiday Inn Express seemed like an older facility that has had at least some renovations. The front desk staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The room was neat and clean and had all the expected amenities. A decent place for a short stay awaiting a cruise or flight.
