    Not a resort

    The gentleman checking us in was rude, he was rude to the man in front of me he was checking in and then he was rude to me he was not helpful he was not welcoming. That being said when we got to the room the room is small and cramped it was clean however with the exception of a dirty top sheet. I had to go down to the front desk to request a clean one because my phone did not work. No one seemed to care that the phone did not work and instead of sending up the top sheet they sent up a mattress pad. And then I had to go back down to the front desk and request a top sheet which was finally delivered to the room. They charge you a $25 per person Per night resort fee that was the biggest joke. There was nothing about this hotel that was a resort with the exception of the location the pool was small and crowded the beach across the street had nothing to do with the hotel the stand that rented chairs and umbrellas was not affiliated with the hotel, make sure you bring cash because they will not charge it to your room and will not take credit cards. This holiday inn was a regular hotel it was supposed to be a three star hotel with a very good rating I would say it was a two star hotel with an OK rating

    It was ok, but don’t plan on going back.

    The hotel was old but it was in a good location. The air conditioner was broken the night we arrived, it sounded like a jet aircraft all night. They did fix it in the morning.
