This place ticked all the boxes. The rooms were lovely, large and very clean. The breakfast was plentiful with great choice and the price we paid was more than reasonable having secured the rooms on hotwire.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one reason only: to swim with manatees. The hotel is very accommodating, they offer an early breakfast and late check out is no problem so you can have a shower and pack your stuff to move on without stress.
