We wanted a weekend getaway and found this hotel on the Holiday Inn website. We used our reward points and were able to stay 2 nights for 10,000 points!
From the moment we stepped through the door, we were treated wonderfully! We were given a bag filled with a treat and a bottle of water for being Holiday Inn Priority members.
The hotel is 2 stories. Our room was on the 2nd floor. There was an elevator, but it was easier just to take the 16 steps up. Our King bed room was clean and very nice. The flat screen tv was nice, but I was blown away by the number of channels available! Several sports, news, children, family & movie channels!!! Our room also had a mini fridge. A microwave was available for guests to use on the first floor.
The hotel, though very close to a truck stop/gas station, was very quiet.
The bathroom was updated and clean.
Breakfast was the typical fare. Instant oatmeal, eggs (each day was different), sausage & sausage gravy, cinnamon rolls, cereal, bagels, muffins, english muffins, juice, milk, coffee (yummy), and tea.
There were ONLY two things that were inconvenient.
One was that we had to get someone to open the pool door for us as it was locked and required a regular key. This was a minor thing for us that required only a short wait. The heated pool was nice with a 3 ft gradual to 5 ft slope.
The second was that there was a pancake maker available on the breakfast bar, but because there were so few guests, they didn't have it turned on the two days we were there. However, the attendant said she was more than happy to get it running for us.
Every person on the staff that we spoke with was so friendly and courteous!
I must admit from the road, I'm not sure I would have picked this spot, because of the truck stop & it's not the most flashiest hotel, but once inside, it was worth it!
There is a laundry facility on the first floor. Vending machines for Coke & Pepsi were available on the first floor and Coke products only on the 2nd floor.
