I've been at this hotel on two occasions now in the last year for conferences and couldn't be happier with my experience with a few subtle issues.
The rooms here are large and well adorned, with updated linens and decor. I do think Holiday Inn is doing what they can to upgrade their properties and even though Southgate is not a destination location for the majority of people, it's a great stop-over hotel or conference location for those looking to "get off the highway." I've also seen weddings here and this would not be remotely my first choice for an event like that.
The service was excellent, the hotel was clean and quiet, the beds were confortable and I couldn't have been happier with my experience. It's definitely not the Ritz, but you're not paying those prices either.
My only complaints would be the food at the hotel, which is not good. There are other options in the area and I would suggest you use those. Also, though updated, the hotel is burdened with an old layout and it's a bit of a maze walking through the uninspiring hallways on your way to your room or conference area and the bathrooms in the rooms are less than inspiring.
These are however, minor beefs. I very much recommend this Holiday Inn.
