I got this place on Priceline so I didnt know which hotel I would get. I read the reviews prior to check in. I was still optimistic, thinking the staff is great and my expectations would be reasonable especially since we paid $30 less than the usual rate.
For the most part, I would say the plan worked. We were not expecting anything super fancy. We were happy with the very nice staff. We went in the hot tub. We ate dinner at the Traveling Fork (boo!), which is conveniently attached. The room was clean.
It definitely was not up to Holiday Inn Standards. We often stay at Holiday Inn Express, which is not thought to be as nice as the regular Holiday Inn. This was not the case though. But if you dont pay full price, the place is sufficient. The breakfast buffet was slightly less than average crappy hotel breakfast buffet food. I usually dont care about the quality when its included but its not at this place. Its $10 for the full or $6 for continental.
THE DEAL BREAKER FOR ME was the very warm and humid room. We were room 106 facing the pool. It was January 2014 (so cold!) in Michigan. We slept with the air conditioner on Hi and the heat down as much as it would also (called "cold"). At 11:30pm, I called the front desk b/c I was burning up despite that I was trying to sleep without blankets and only had on shorts and a tshirt. They only offered to move our room....it sounded like this was just par for the course. My husband was sleeping so I declined.
I would not stay here again or recommend it. What is the point of a hotel if you cant sleep!
