Very poor experience on a two night stay. Location & access was good , however the complex needs a lot of attention. The room we stayed in the rug was FILTHY ,bathtub wouldn't drain & the room was noisy because of poor interior construction. The free breakfast was a joke . Would NOT recommend this hotel ............

Nice hotel, and staff were very friendly. Great location next to marina with a super pool area. Went to the restaurant next door where we enjoyed the food and drinks, and they had great happy hour specials. Hot breakfast had a good selection, but It was very busy even first thing on a Sunday. My one comment which is the...

Stayed four nights at The Holiday Inn Express & Suites (2/3/17-2/7/17). Lovely hotel with helpful staff and registration personnel. Directly in the lobby, there is a gentleman stationed at a desk to assist guests with booking snorkeling or scuba diving expeditions. He was there during the morning hours during our stay. The breakfast offering is adequate if you enjoy a...

We were very pleased with the whole facility. Stayed there 4 nights. Quiet, clean. Nice pool but we didn't have very good weather. Breakfasts had enough variety so that we were never bored. Enjoyed USA Today papers, also. One of the workers volunteered to help my husband with his mobility scooter. Restaurant that is separate, but part of the motel...

Was an excellent hotel with excellent breakfast. Staff was pleasant and rooms were clean. Only thing I was slightly bummed about was $230 for a night at a Holiday Inn Express... but that's what you get I suppose when you wait to book last minute. We were unsure where we would be stopping for the night.

A clean, large hotel with a good location for traveling thru but walls were paper thin so we were up due to noisy neighbors. The pool could not have been heated as very cold and no not tub! On an inlet harbor so you can see boats but no real scenery. Bar/Rest next door had a fun happy hour and...

Stayed overnight at the Holiday Inn Express in Marathon Keys in FL. The hotel was awesome(!) and very reasonable priced compared to other hotels. The building is new, clean and the staff is super friendly! Rooms were very quiet and clean. Adjacent to the hotel is the restaurant which lies opposite the pool and has a thatched roof. Perfect setting...

The property is a great location, the staff are great and the property is very nice overall. I had trouble sleeping on the plastic mattress covers as plastic is hot, hard to move on (sheets slide on plastic) and noisy (plastic crunches). There are advantages to the mattress protectors... "they do more than just protect against pets and other accidents....
