My family and I had a wonderful time at the Holiday Inn. Just so happened that the same fellow that I booked my room with, David, was at the desk upon check-in.
What a nice guy. Just real pleasant and very customer oriented. The hotel was nice and clean. Our first room smelled as if the carpet was still drying, so we asked to switch. David took care of the request with no problems. Second room was great. Nice and clean.
Mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Ice machine on the floor as well. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Only one negative about the hotel- both dryers were broken. Hotel immediately refunded our change, but we had to hang wet clothes in the bathroom. Small inconvenience for a great stay. Other problem was that there was millions-literally-- of jellyfish larvae in the Gulf over the Labor Day Weekend. Weird, icky and scary. Guess tropical storm blew them inland.
