We reserved an ocean view room through the Holiday Inn website and were not disappointed. I saw some complaints in past reviews about room type, and their website is very clear about what type of room you are reserving. The main building is the only building that had ocean view rooms and you definitely have to pay a higher price for them, so there's really no mistaking what you are booking unless you use a discount hotel booking site (which are usually very vague on what you will get when you get there). The room had a private balcony overlooking the grounds, pool, lobster shack, and water. The rooms were nice and very clean, beds were cushy and comfy as well as the large almost body size pillows. Ammenities are pretty standard for a Holiday Inn. Our room had a small fridge in the dresser/credenza so that was nice for keeping our wine and snacks cold to enjoy with the view on our balcony. The staff was very friendly. One thing we were disappointed in was that the coffee shop wasn't open and wouldn't be open until June 1st. We were looking for a quick breakfast the first morning and found a note on the coffee shop door. Not a huge deal though, we found that a lot of stuff was closed still and wouldn't be opening until June for the summer season. One suggestion for the hotel would be to add small tables to the balconies to have something to set your drinks on (instead of the ground).
The hotel is about 1.5 miles from the actual downtown area and the road to town has a small sidewalk, so it's definitely walkable, but traffic is crazy! so watch out. We walked into town one nice night when we wanted a few drinks and then used At Your Service taxi which was just $5 for the ride home, and very prompt when we called.
