When I arrived I had to wait 15 minutes for the check-in. The lady disappeared sometimes, came back, answered the phone, did something else etc.
I started a discussion about the rate I booked which included internet but she mentioned as Platinum member it is anyway free so I asked her to adjust the rate which she said is impossible.
Meanwhile I gave up, went to the room and tried the internet but it did not work. I had to call the hotline and it took 2 hrs to fix it.
Check-in experience: Bad
Parking: Free and on site (good!)
Rooms: Standard Holiday Inn
This hotel is quite cheap and good for 1 night. There is basically not much to do except sleeping and watching TV. You need a car!
Funny thing: There was 1 guest who booked a meeting room and wanted to pay but they could not find him in the system. He gave up after 15 minutes. So maybe he never paid.
