After a small confusion identifying the place, we were happy to arrive at the hotel. We had followed other Holiday Inn Express signage from the freeway which put us in a very different place - near another Holiday Inn. They were ready for us, as they had had lots of other people do the same, and they provided us with a photocopied map of directions from their establishment to the one we were booked into.
This hotel is in the middle of an industrial type area, amongst car retail centres. This meant that there were not alot of options around us to eat other than at the hotel other to get back in the car. (This was made more difficult by heavy snow!) We were also advised by the girl on reception to take a cab into Cambridge as parking was expensive. This was not the best advice as the parking cost us $6, and a round trip to Cambridge in a cab would have cost around $20.
Eating at the hotel was a pleasant enough experience, and the food was ample servings of a failr standard fare.The rooms were clean and comfortable, but with an extra bed in the room, it was squishy with luggage. We appreciated the tea and coffee making facilities very much.
A good stopover on a road or business trip!
