Stayed at this lovely location sadly only for one night towards end of our holiday. Great stay, gorgeous view and room overlooking ocean with breath taking views. Lovely local downtown area. Hidden gem find in Caseys outside eating and drinking area but also enjoyed Mulligans too. Good music and nice view. Staff at this hotel so friendly and welcoming. Will return.
We stayed here while vending at a local festival end of Sept. it was definitely old and worn because of being on the beach from the many years in existence. For the value and being beachfront it was ok. Probably built in the 60’s or 70’s and has the motel layout. Front desk personnel were pleasant and Lobby nice. As we entered the room we discovered a smell and asking the desk they confirmed it was new carpet and the glue and new carpet smell was strong but they were accommodating and had housekeeping come with air fresheners. It was very clean despite the age of the hotel. Great location. Attached to the restaurant was Mulligans Restaurant which was convenient. Normally Holiday inn provides a continental breakfast but all this one did was give a 10% off coupon for breakfast at Mulligans which we felt was pricey before the coupon. So that was a bummer. We were able to secure an on line price deal which was less than front desk pricing which made up for the deficiencies. There was a nice pool which seemed well maintained although we had no time to use it. We would go back again if we’re on a budget and def stay during the week where prices much lower. Comparatively it was a good deal but it was still old. If they tore it down be rebuilt I’m sure prices would double. I’ve been in worse but it HAS to be clean and it was.
