“Stay away!! Terrible service and filthy rooms.”
Reviewed 11 June 2008

Words can't express how dirty and disgusting this hotel is. We stayed in a ground floor room that backs on to the parking lot (as opposed to the pool view.)

The room had two double beds and even though we were 2 adults and two children, there were only 3 bath towels, 3 hand towels and ONE washcloth!! There were only two disposable cups and the ice bucket was missing.

The room smelled strongly like cleaning solution and there were disgusting stains on the floor and stains on the sheets.

Beyond the lack of basic cleanliness, the service is also very poor at this hotel. We ordered room service the night before we wanted it, as instructed on the guest services guide and room service menu in the room.

The breakfast did not arrive at the time we had ordered it and in fact, we had to call room service 30 minutes after it should have been there. They then sent the breakfast.

When checking out, the breakfast was billed twice and it took 3 front desk employees and finally a manager to correct the error.

To my surprise, I checked my card statement a few days later and discovered an additional charge of almost $300 that was separate to and in addition to the $130 bill for our one night's stay. Again, after very successful dealings from an inept manager, the bank canceled the erroneous charge.

Do not go to this Holiday Inn.

I'm always scared after I read this forum. Ineviteably there are a few reviews that talk of the total horror experience they had.

My experience was a good one. Our room was very well maintained, clean, etc. The room may have recently been renovated. The bathroom tub had obviously been repaired recently.

This room was booked through Priceline. Desk was courteous and helpful. No issues of security for us. In fact, I left our Thule canvass car top carrier straped to the vehicle all night. Woke up and it was still there. I'd book a room here again without concern.

This place is quite nice. We had a newly remodeled room with a king bed, frig, microwave and lots of room. Very clean. An expanded continental breakfast is included which was good for us, or you can pay extra for eggs, etc. The front desk staff were very polite and accomodating as we had to change our room to get a king bed. At certain times there are hot cookies at the front desk...nice touch. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. It is also pet-friendly.

This property needs renovating in a big way. Stairs and hallways falling apart. The room was ok and reasonably clean, however. Many people loitering around the property creating security concerns. Booked through Hotwire and did not have a problem getting a king non-smoking upon request. Hotwire's 3-star rating isn't accurate by a long shot.

Booked on priceline, and traveling with my 4 month old. The hotel told me that all priceline customers get the smoking rooms in the hotel. Yes, that is right, we got punished with a smoking room (which had dirty ashtrays BTW) because we used priceline. They would not switch us to a nonsmoking room. It was so bad, and so dirty and stinky, we left and found another hotel.
