We stayed here one night prior to a cruise. I would not say there was anything special about the hotel, nor would I say there was anything wrong with it. It provided all we needed.

We called at about 9AM for a pickup. Half an hour later I called again. After an hour I gave up and ordered an Uber pickup....

Older but decent Holiday Inn Express. Seemed to be especially used for people leaving on a cruise as the cruiseport was very close. We had a free shuttle from airport to hotel and it picked us up in a timely fashion. Shuttle driver lady was especially funny and had us all laughing on our short trip. Through a shuttle company...

Joseph went above and beyond assisting us with proper information and with his friendly nature made our stay a pleasure. We thank him for making us feel at home. The service was great and the staff let us stay in the facility after our check out without any problem.
