Friendly staff, equipped hotel.”

The African guy at reception recommended a certain room for us not the one I had initially chosen and it was honestly the best. The iron arrives in less than 10minutes. A little technical issue with the tv but they immediately sent a Technician. Book with breakfast. The breakfast buffet was honestly our favourite part coz we couldn’t enjoy the pool due to the weather. We had the ocean view. The kids loved it. Unfortunately not a lot of facilities for the kids coz it’s an express but you can book , enjoy breakfast, pool area and take your kids out elsewhere. No microwave but you get a mini fridge. Close to the beach and Gateway. Free, safe undercover parking and daily housekeeping.

Great Hotel (Room 544)”

I enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and it's location is close to a shopping and hospital (5min by car). The only suggestions I would make is to have more of a variety of cooked foods for the breakfast and to change the access times of the pool to open earlier and close later, perhaps 6am-7pm? Other than that I was impressed with the hotel given that it is an express.
