We chose this hotel prior to our cruise. It had a shuttle to and from the port and parking for $25. We also like to stay at Holiday Inn's. The gulf was right across the street with many other attractions within driving distance. The room was small but did have a mini fridge which smelled of fish. The room was clean but could tell it was close to salt water with the smell of mildew. The bed was not comfortable, very hard and the pillows were just ok. The breakfast was good with a selection of different food items. The staff was friendly. I felt the room was way overpriced for the accomodations that we had and for a Holiday Inn was one of the least favorites we have stayed at. I would only recommend this hotel if you have a cruise scheduled since there are only a few that have the park and shuttle.
