My mother and I were there for a bridal shower for my cousin and this hotel was close by to the location. At check in (we got in early) no rooms were ready with two double beds and we had two rooms booked. The girl at the desk was super accommodating and went to housekeeping to see what was available....

We really loved our room. One of the cleanest and most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The pillows and mattress were great and bathroom was very clean. The location of our room was undesirable but we were not in the room much so it didn't effect us. Otherwise, I would have been asked to be moved. The pool, office,...

I have been in very expensive hotels, Yet this particular one has been my favorite by far. We had kids and the pool area was more than enough fun for them. Also the Complimentary Breakfast is delicious Pancakes, Omelets made to order and the Staff is very friendly and helpful.

I can't really say anything negative about this hotel. It was very, very clean, and I would not hesitate to return. It's so very close to Rivertown Crossings Mall and the new Tanger Outlet Mall, for those of you who enjoy shopping, dining, and the cinema. I will only add that it was a bit pricey for a Holiday inn...

We have a family of 5 - and 11 year old boy, a 7 year old girl and a 4 year old girl. The only complaint was from our son when he found out the pool depth only went to 3.5 feet. Otherwise, everything was great. We had a suite with a king bed in one part and two sleeper...

This hotel was wonderful for a family getaway for my daughter and toddler granddaughter. The staff were wonderful, food was great and the pool area and toddler splash pad were a hit. The staff were very accommodating.

Everything was booked for the time we needed and we felt lucky to have found a room here. FYI: the 3 story water slide is gone and they now have a splash pad. That didn't matter much to us but when we booked it, we were under the impression it was still running. The rooms were all updated with new...

We stayed here for one night while visiting for a graduation party. The stay was nice and the pool area was an unexpected bonus.

The hotel was doing some renovations, which made it a bit dirty/loud, but they did their best to make sure it wasn't inconvenient for guests.
