Nice hotel. Not on the beach but a very small stroll. Close to nice places to eat and also a shopping center. Located on the quite side of the beach meaning not close to boardwalk. If you are looking to be on the boardwalk then its 15 minutes ride. Northside park behind the hotel is very nice for walk and... More

We visited this hotel right before school began for the kids and had a good experience. Always like the daily breakfast at every Holiday Inn Express we visit and this one.

Soon, water was coming into the lobby and entrance to the lobby. Lots of buckets. Then, water began to pour in through our window. Not just a few... More

Great location. Cross the street is the beach. Back of the hotel is a nice park. Our room is quiet and clean. But it is also damp just like other reviewers mentioned.

What I will remember about my time at this Holiday Inn is the friendliness of the front desk staff especially the Manager Keisha. Keisha is a credit to the facility, extremely friendly and highly professional. This hotel is right across from the Northside Park which is a beautiful park.
