We have stayed at Holiday Inn Express in several states recently and not been disappointed. The property at Vero Beach came through for us, as well. The property is very clean and very well maintained. Although it was a rainy day -- limited some of the options to do in the area -- there is an outlet mall right next door, so that was okay.
Keep in mind this place is NOT on or near the beach. It is right on the highway, making an excellent choice if you're heading north or south through the area.
The morning breakfast was very well done, and kept stocked. This last is in light of a high school girls' softball team (and families!) staying there, so there were a lot of people eating. Good job on the morning breakfast bar staff!
The only negative I can say is the "outdoor smoker's area" is right in front of the main entrance door to the lobby. If you park under the canopy (e.g., to check in, or load / unload luggage) you have to pass through a cloud of cigarette smoke. I mentioned this to the front desk clerk and he made vague mention of unspecific plans to relocate the smoking area to somewhere else ... but for now, there is a bench, an ashtray, and a sign designating the main entryway into the lobby as the smoking area.More
