Everyone working there was so very nice and helpful. Especially Tiffany Bryan and Margarita Ramos in the B.Jiggers restaurant. Loved that they showed a movie by the pool each night, had karaoke during the day at the pool, and all the food we ordered was great.

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn on the Beach. Great view of the Gulf from our balcony! Beach is short walk across the street. Breakfast buffet was good! Staff was friendly and helpful. Good hotel for family with kids looking for a value. Restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Stayed for one day after a cruise. We had to wait until 4 pm to check in. So we went to the pool, but it was not pleasant at all. They had half the pool blocked off while they worked building what appeared to be a water feature. It was very windy and a bit cool. Once we checked into...

Recognize this is a beach hotel, BUT...the door to the room never closed tightly. If not pulled, the room was able to be entered even though the door looked shut. A good push, the door sprang open. Carpets and furniture were worn and dated. Loved having the balcony to have gulf view! Front desk staff was cheerful and helpful. Great...

Overall a good experience. I do recommend asking for a room at least on the 5th floor or higher. We were on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and it was a bit noisy until the pool closed (11p) They do a good job of maximizing the amenities they have. They had a kids club with activities in the afternoon...
