We booked our fourth-anniversary stay there because of the largest pool KC mentioned in their description. But we found out it had closed after Labor Day even though it still has been in the 60's by day since then. The booking said free breakfast included which they told us cost $10.95 after we were seated. It was $7.95 the next morning for non-buffet breakfast. The buffet was out of all breads and rolls and biscuit gravy by 10am on a Sunday. I guess the college team staying there ate it all. We are priority club members but received no coupons at check-in for breakfast or welcome basket with cookies either. I raided their kitchen Saturday night looking for a set of forks to eat our cheesecake factory slices with in the room. While I was back there. I heard a Holiday Inn employee sit a wedding party in the closed bar. The bride asked for some cocaine for a pool party. I snuck out before I saw if he brought it to her or not. I think they were looking for afterhours booze. I left the forks in the room but the maid didn't return them to the kitchen so I brought them down the next day with breakfast and left them on the table. The toilet tank imprint date shows that the hotel was made in 1967 and it doesn't look like they spent a time on it since then with all of the rooms and halls having outdated wallpaper. It was a tad pricey with the rooms in the condition that they are in. Andrew's shuttle service for $5 to the Country Club area around the corner is the one redeeming quality. We didn't have to move our car the entire time we were there.
