I have stayed at this hotel before. It is nothing fancy but the front desk staff is very nice. The rooms are decent and the location is just off the highway which makes it easy to get from business appointment to business appointment and then back at the end of the day. There are also some really good places to... More

I can not believe that Holiday Inn put their name on this hotel. IHG member. The worst Holiday ever!!!! Stay away from here. They are remodeling, but it's not going to help this hotel. I checked into room 425 non-smoking room only to smell smoke. Showed up at the at the front desk the second time and asked for a... More

There has to be a better option. This place brings the Holiday Inn brand down! Our room stunk of cigarettes, towels weren't exactly clean, bed was tired and bath full of hair. It was very uncomfortable and the 'free' bfast was stale and half empty.

Returned to hotel where stores, restaurants close and convenient. Staff allowed quick check-in to a clean King, accommodating our 13# Jack Russel service dog. Typical breakfast included, fresh fruit appreciated. Will return on our future travels.

Room was clean, breakfast was good, laundry and computer were complimentary. Staff were so helpful, kind, and friendly. Also had workout facility, but I didn't use it. Even enjoyed tasty, free lemonade in the lobby each day. We had an ADA room that was very accomodating for our needs.

Forced to stay here because of a hockey tournament. There are so many other options (& 3-4 around this hotel) in the area to choose from before you stay here BY CHOICE.

The staff was very friendly but the hotel needs a little elbow grease to get it looking clean again. Our room had wall dust hangings and a stained towel was hung up on the towel bar.

The location was clean and the staff was very friendly. The gentlemen working the breakfast buffet was outstanding, and he tried his best to meet everyone's needs. The humidity in the rooms was high, but the rooms had no odor, which was better than my recent stay at another local hotel.

Typical Holiday Inn with clean lobby, rooms, and decent breakfast selection. Beds were comfortable and the AC worked well. They ran out of cribs so I would recommend you call the hotel early to reserve one. Single elevator which was painfully slow so plan ahead if you're on a higher floor.
