Hi! Last March, we stayed there post cruise and it was fine. There was one restaurant across the street about a block away...I think it was Italian..very busy and popular. The hotel has a restaurant next door which was O.K. for breakfast. There isn't too much that is walking distance. We also couldn't resist the entertainment rate! If you don't want a car, you may prefer downtown. There is another Holiday Inn and a Best Western. We spent the first night precruise at that Holiday Inn which we got on Hotline for around $50. From there we could walk to Horton's Plaza (a long walk!!!) I think it was called Bayview.
