My family and I checked into the Holiday Inn Truro for one night. Upon the initial impression driving up to the front door gives a good impression. The lobby is clean and ghe front desk staff are friendly making check-in smooth. After receiving the room key we were directed to the elevator which was very slow and seemed to have a mind of its own; meaning my wife pressed the button for the 4th floor but it only went to the 3rd floor before heading to the bottom floor. By time I was back from the car with the bags she was still on the elevator trying to figure out if there was another one that goes to the 4th floor but there is only 1 which it pretty small. Another guest on the4th floor said they had the same issue of pressing the button for the 4th floor only to get to the 3rd before being taken only a ride to the basement. We did discover you could get off on the 3rd floor and take the few stairs in the hallway that will access the 4th floor.
The room was clean but a little tight for spacd with two queen beds, a table with a couple of chairs,an entertainment center with flat screen TV plus a cabinet to hang some clothes. There is a mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. The bathroom is basic and relly nothing to write about except the shower had really good presure.
Part of our lower score was related to going to the indoor pool which is part of the games room and exercise room on the bottom level. When we took the kids down for a swim there were no more clean towels. I went to the front desk to ask for more towels which I was told they would have delivered immediately but after waiting 25 minutes they still had not delivered any more towels. I made a 2nd trip to the front to let them know we were still waiting for towels they said the clean towels were coming out of the dryer and would be there in 10 mins which was another half an hour. Another issue we saw were people sitting in the pokl area drinking beer in glasd bottles around the pool area. The final concern was people running and screaming in the halls at 3am waking people trying to sleep. We were told the next day that the police had to remove a person passed out in the lobby in the middle of the night. This was a bit of a concern to us about the security around the building especially during the overnight.
Overall it is a clean place to stay but the rowdy guests and apparent lack of security seems to be a concern to consider.
