As seaseoned travellers well know the older Holiday Inn locations can be hit or miss. This one definitely was a hit.
The hotel itself is indeed a bit old and just a bit beat up but, nothing horrible. No funny smells, no mold, no collapsing ceiling or spongy floors. The location is not bad either although there isn't much special around there anyway. The hotel is right down the block from a grocery store, a WalMart and several good restaurants.
The rooms that we got were both clean, quiet and comfortable. The cable was good and had a good selection of channels. The water pressure was good and plenty of hot water. The AC wasn't what I would call good. But then, I'm used to the Texas AC and this is Manitowoc, Wisconsin and it was good enough to keep me cool even with the temperature up to 100.
The staff was friendly, helpful and was more than happy to help us with any requests.
The one stand out here was the breakfast. The hotel did not appear to have the usual buffet but instead an actual sit down breakfast which turned out to be fantastic. Not sure who is on the griddle back there but it definitely tastes like my grandmother's cooking. Don't walk across the street to the Perkins, eat breakfast at the hotel.
You probably aren't coming to this hotel as a "destination" but if you are in the area and need a room, this one is definitely worth a try.
