A New Life for the Holiday Inn Oceanside at Jensen Beach

A New Life for the Holiday Inn Oceanside at Jensen Beach


Holiday Inn Oceanside Jensen Beach
After seven long years it looks like the Holiday Inn Oceanside may soon be revitalized and open as the popular beach front destination it was in the past.  The Holiday Inn suffered extensive damage after the hurricanes of 2004, was almost completely refurbished and then sold with plans for an upscale beach resort.  With the economic downturn those plans never materialized and the hotel sat idle, being used occasionally for training for local Fire Departments.Now it appears that Ocean Properties Ltd. of Delray Beach (who bought the 4.6 acre property for 12 million in 2009) are getting ready to refurbish and once again restore this popular beach front hotel.  While the time line is not complete, plans call for a 184 room hotel, outdoor pool, conference and meeting rooms and a restaurant based on the existing structure of the old hotel.This will be a welcome addition to the Jensen Beach Oceanside area and will greatly help the local tourist industry by increasing our very limited beach front short term rooms for visitors.  We look forward to Ocean properties Ltd. plans and wish them good luck in rebuilding this welcome hotel back into our community.
