“Old hotel but very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

We lived 5 nights here for family vocation. It's an old hotel so not luxurious. $105/night is not bad. Staff are very nice and helpful. The only problem to us was it is far, about 15 miles 20 min, to the beach. But not too bad.

This hotel was clearly taken over by the Holiday Inn chain, because its characteristics are of no other ones I've been to. It has a very charming, classic feeling to the lobby. Because of the old-looking lobby, I was scared to see the room, but it was surprisingly pleasant and completely renovated. Very clean and comfy. The staff were exceptional, though. The check-in woman was so incredibly nice that she frequently went out of her way to make sure our taxi was there for us, or her genuine concern for whether we enjoyed our stay. The pool looked really cool, but we never used it. This hotel is not close to the beach, if that's what you're looking for. It was maybe a 15-20 minute taxi drive to the strip, and it costed us about $35.

This is an older property. All the staff I have met here are incredible. Try to get executive floor as these seem to be better in my opinion. Food from mamma Mia's is good and if your looking for an adult beverage you can't go wrong in chances are. I stay here frequently on business and have really never had a bad experience here. Rooms are adequate however desk area could use more lighting and pillows on bed could be better. Still, overall a nice property, great location , and an awesome staff.

Was there for a wedding and what a great place to sleep. Beds nice and comfy. Service was great at check in and very friendly staff. Our room was quiet and relaxing. Convenient to where wedding was being held and not too far away from food and shopping. Pluse very economical in price. I usually like staying on or closer to beach but wasn't there for beach trip but I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again.

Room Tip: Rule of thumb to not choose room near ice/vending or near elevator unless its necessary.

Did not book ahead but received a great rate. Free cookies and cappuccinos in the lobby. Never saw so many stained glass ceiling fans in one location! Really cool. Beautiful fountains. Rooms were nice and updated and clean! The shower was RED! Really different. We couldn't find a cart to haul in our luggage and a maintenance man brought us out his service cart and helped us get our stuff in. He picked up trash in the parking lot as we went in. Good for him!! The bar is really cool. Old style huge wood bar, pool tables etc...They gave us a late check out until 2pm since we checked in late! Would stay again! The pool was open 24 hours!! Only downside was the hot tub was full of foam, which wasn't inviting!

Room Tip: Cocktails in the hotel bar are REALLY stiff drinks. Good, if you like to have an alcoholic beverage...

I was not sure about this place from seeing it from streets. went in and loved it. Just about all employees were extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel like we belong to the "family". Rooms nice. Food great.

Hotel is very nice. The staff is exceptional! They could not be more accommodating. I spend 100+ nights per year while traveling. By far the best staff I've experienced.
The bar is very nice. Restaraunt offers a breakfast buffet.
Rooms are well laid out and clean.
