“Better than I expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I check Trip Advisor all the time, and this hotel had some mixed reviews. Generally though, it is VERY convenient and easy to get to. The hotel itself is very nice, which is typical of Holiday Inn. The room was comfortable and the furnishings were tasteful. We usually stay in Holiday Inn Express, and this is not one of them. But, we have grown accustomed to such things as coffee/tea in the room, complimentary breakfast (we were told we could have "booked" breakfast... Boo!), and the comments about paper thin walls... Yeah, that's correct. Our room was just off the lobby, and there was some sort of bus trip... Whatever... kids in the hall until late at night, and they weren't savvy enough to be quiet.

We did enjoy the indoor pool (3-5 feet), which gave our granddaughter something fun to do. The room was very clean, and the staff was helpful.The restaurant there, Moose Creek Lodge, had good food, but it is very pricey. Five adults and a 3-year-old... Burgers, two apps, and a kids meal (Which was supposed to be free, but wasn't), soft drinks... Over $100.

Room Tip: We were in 118 (I think)... Point is, it was a few steps off the lobby, and the lobby was busy the n...

I've stayed in fantastic places before, this just isn't even on the same planet. It's simply a place to stay, it was clean, the bed was comfortable, but walls paper thin. Sooo noisy! Breakfast should also be served earlier.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in College Park as a half way point on our way from South Carolina to our son's graduation in Long Island. Booked a double queen large room on Priceline. Paid extra for it. When checking in, we were told that no such room exists and the only room with two beds were double beds which were uncomfortable as there were four of us. The check in person just told us that we would have to talk to Priceline. We also booked this hotel because the HI website said that it had a hot tub. Front desk person told us that got removed a few months ago. We wanted to get out on the road early and complementary coffee would have been wonderful. No such thing here. Have to buy it in the restaurant and that doesn't open until 7 a.m. Had a wonderful time in Long Island at a Hampton Inn with free breakfast, a hot tub and 24 hour free coffee.

Room Tip: There is no double queen room if Priceline is advertising it.

The bad: older hotel, very loud in room from noisy hallway, older furniture in pretty bad shape, no breakfast, old bathroom, air didn't work, attached restaurant expensive, two towers with tower 2 far from desk. The good: reasonable rates, great front desk staff, location, comfortable bed.

Room Tip: If you want to shop at Ikea this hotel shares a parking lot. You can go there for a cheap good meal.

I have stayed here twice in the past two months for business and find this Holiday Inn to be one of the best I have ever stayed in. Very professional staff. Very clean rooms, lobby, and pool area. My only nit pick is a lack of a real coffee bar for early morning java fix. You have to venture into the attached restaurant for coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators as they stay busy and do make some noise with people getting...

The "newly renovated" rooms (in tower 2) have 9-year old tvs without dvd players. Even though I called ahead to find out how to hook up a dvd player (so the kids in our group could have a movie night) and they told me HDMI or RCA (ok..), neither worked. The tv was too old to hook up, period. The real engineer in our group recognized it immediately, and we called the hotel "engineer," who basically just verified that, yes, our planned movie was not gonna happen.
The elevator (just one) was really slow.
The hot tub is "permanently closed."
Basically, its on its last legs.

Room Tip: I heard that saying "tower 2 courtyard view" was the best. If so, it's not so great...

Great stay here, will be back! Hotel is clean with good service. The restaurant in the hotel is convenient and the food is good. The indoor pool was great for the kids. Great location close to the metro. Lots of restaurants close by and it's next door to an IKEA.
