This was my first stay at this hotel. I occasionally stay at Holiday Inns, and like many chain hotels, there are good ones and bad ones. This is definitely one of the good ones. I was here for an early morning business meeting the next day, and was changing time zones eastward, so needed a good nights sleep and things to go smoothly. They did. The room was spacious, well set up for working on my laptop, the bed was very comfortable and the pillows not such that they gave my neck a crick, but could actually be slept on. The hotel is nice and new and everything looks shiny and works like it should. The lighting is a little low with the CF bulbs. It would be nice to increase the lighting a little bit and not use such dim CFs. The breakfast was excellent - something for everyone - bacon, omlettes, sweet roles, bread, pastries, cereal, fruit juices, yogurt, coffee. The staff was courteous, pleasant and helpful. The area has a few places to eat within walking distance, but other than the Carls, they are not obvious, so ask the front desk. There are some excellent places to eat within a short drive. Parking was a little tight for large trucks (I had a Chevy Eldorado crew cab). There are about 8 spaces large enough to park one of these, and people with little compacts often feel entitled to park in them, so parking can be tight. I would definitely stay here again were I in the area.
