Perfect location, nice place. Bath needs updating
The location of this hotel is perfect, right across from the beach. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We loved the pool area, my husband was there every morning while I slept in. The bathroom was a little small (the closet in the room pushes into it). The bathtub seriously needs replacing. I almost fell the first time I entered it - the liner under the tub moves and is unstable.

$25 fee for hotel services that should be included
Room is comfortable, but air conditioning is noisy. Wi-fi is poor. Hotel charges an additional destination fee of $25 for a usual hotel services like coffee and water that doesn't worth it.

Fantastic location.
Fantastic location right opposite the beach. Worth getting the sea view room. Room was basic but very clean. Friendly staff too.

Another Great Time
This is becoming our tradition and we love it. We arrived at the hotel quite early, 10am, and I asked if I could park in the parking lot this early before check-in time. They not only said yes, but they already had a room ready for us. That was awesome. The staff was amazing. Very friendly. They definitely understand the hospitality business. Customers want to be treated kindly and they own the patent on friendliness. The rooms are very nice for an older property, but you’ll never beat the location. Right across from an amazing beach and a five minute walk to St. Armand Circle. So, a nice pool, great staff, clean rooms, plenty of parking, fair prices, onsite restaurant, we love this Holiday Inn Express. See you all next year. Maybe they’ll comp me a room next year for speaking so highly of them. LOL. No really, they’re wonderful people at this IHG location.

Id definitely go back!
Fantastic experience! The hotel is beautiful and the service could not have been better from everyone i interacted with. Its a few steps to the beach with a beautiful view of the gulf if youre on that side. They have tons of perks like free bottles water, towels for the beach and pool, a pool bar, free coffee. I could go on and on. The beach never got overly crowded like some areas either which i love
