Stayed 4 nights for business followed by then sight -seeing at the beginning of February 2010. I chose it mainly because Expedia came up with a pretty good package price (around $80 per night). In the Tally area I don't think there is much difference between the 2.5 & the 3 star hotels, I did not think this was anything fancy. On my trip I had essentially no interaction with the front desk, so I can't speak to that, the housekeeping was fine. All the bed covers were white, which is important to me. The pool is a small outdoor thing & I never searched very hard for the fitness center. I had a 4th floor room with microwave & fridge & I ate in, mostly.
The location is off of a highway service road so you have to watch carefully for your turn-- I kept driving through parking lots, it was also sometimes a bit of a challenge to get out in the direction I wanted to go. Although they call the hotels out in this area "downtown" they are not. The closest ones outside of downtown, yes, but a car is necessary.
However since i was driving around I did find two great stores nearby. I have nothing against the Appleby's restaurant, but since they are common, I ended up going to the New Leaf Market across the side road. It is a whole foods organic sort of place with a very large take-out section & salad bar, coffee bar, etc. A great choice for a single person to eat better while traveling. Then across the main highway the other way was a place called World Market. It was bigger than a large supermarket & stocked jammed full of imported foods, wines, chocolates, some cookware & gifts. It was great. (I should make a Trip Advisor listing for it.) I wavered and almost considered paying for a checked bag on my airline, just so I could shop my heart out. Going back next week & I'm still thinking about it.
Bottom line, if you need the Holiday Inn because of a plan or a discount or whatever, don't let it worry you. Just remember that it's not really downtown and many hotels in the area are essentially similar -- look for a good price.
