I must first temper my review with the fact that it's been a long 100+ degree day outside. As far as appearances go this is one of the nicer hotels I've stayed at. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The bathrooms have real tile and are large enough that you don't feel like you're in a hotel. The TV is nice and has upwards of 70 channels to choose from. The pool area is spectacular and the gym is nicely furnished for a hotel.
That being said, here's the bad news. Again, it's 100 degrees outside (literally), my A/C unit is on full blast and it's at best 80 degrees in this room. I don't know if it's the room we're in (right next to the black tar roof) generating too much heat for the A/C or if the unit just needs service, but either way, I will not put up with this much longer. As my colleague and I walked through the lobby we overheard the front desk attendant conversing with someone about moving rooms, presumably for the same reason.
In lieu of a breakfast area there is a, in my opinion, relatively overpriced restaurant/bar which seems to be the new norm for Holiday Inn's. 10+ dollars for a meal that I can get at any real restaurant with real service for less than 6 is crazy.
If you're in the area there's not a lot to choose from, this is a decent place to stay, you just might want to check your AC and either bring your own breakfast or plan on staying elsewhere.
