“Awesome hotel and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

We overnight here on our way home to IL after a 9 day road trip all over Texas. This was the last of 5 hotels and was such a nice, comfortable place to be after a long day of traveling. We appreciate the helpful, friendly staff the front desk and breakfast!

On our way to South Bend, Indiana in October 2013, my husband and I stayed at this hotel. The front desk receptionist was very friendly and welcoming, and gave us both a welcome package of water and chips. The room was very nice, good size bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. The hotel offered a hot breakfast, which was good. Me, being on crutches, the girls who worked in that area couldn't have been more helpful to me. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel.

We found this to be a great place to stay for a reasonable price. The room was large, newer and clean. The breakfast was hot and fresh and the staff was nice. We enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely stay again if going through the area.

Room Tip: We took a room on the 4th floor so there would be no noise above us. We got in late and would be che...

The employees were definitely polite, patient and knowledgeable. The room was clean, well-stocked and ready for us on check in. It was always easy to find the hotel when we were returning, it is the tallest building around in a very convenient spot just off the highway. If you are tired of driving, there are quite a few restaurants and fast food with walking distance. The employees were definitely polite, patient and knowledgeable. The room was large, clean, well-stocked and ready for us on check in.The shower worked well, the little shampoo/lotion are Bath & Beauty and smelled great on my 3-1/2 yr old grandson, the beds were comfortable, sheets crisp and clean, towels were nice and big. The only problem I ran into was the high bathroom counter. Great if you are 6', barely manageable at about 5'. They need stools for families. I didn't ask for one, but it would have been better than having him use the toilet for brushing his teeth (not rinsing the brush!). The refrigerator and microwave made it even better.
The free breakfast had items to please anyone. Biscuits, gravy, patty sausage, scrambled eggs, a magic pancake machine to do-it-yourself pancakes, juices, and all the bread and pastry items you can think of. The indoor pool was a good reward for the little one. The area did not have a strong chlorine smell. There was a rack with big clean towels. The water was warm, and it was a good way to burn off energy from the long drives the two days before and a good regrouping time for the adults. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. They should be commended for being such good employees, especially the red head front desk woman and the breakfast ladies.

Room Tip: Not much soundproofing. Ask not to be directly beneath children.

Stopping when I'm less than three hours from home is out of the ordinary for me. Rain coupled with construction led to a change of plans. I found this Holiday Inn to be exceptional from my initial contact with Mary Lou who efficiently booked my room to Kimberly who warmly greeted this very weary traveller. To compound things health issues prompted me to ask re: the possibility of a late checkout. Mary Lou was more than caring & gracious. Definitely would stay again when unusual circumstances warrant it.

The hotel was the host hotel for my family reunion. The rooms were extremely large and comfortable; the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel also provided free breakfast that was very tasty.
