I stopped here when I got tired of driving on a cross country trip. It was pricier than some other options, but I feel like Holiday Inns are a brand you can trust. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. There were cheaper prices online, so thry waited patiently while I paid online on my phone. The room was clean,... More

Great staff, nice pool, good cardio room with a TV and water cooler. Breakfast was great and although very busy, didn't have to wait for food. VERY comfortable bed in good size room. Were right by the front desk and had no idea noise wise, or that the hotel was packed. Very friendly helpful staff

Ma Kettle and I spent a few days here, and appreciated the well maintained premises. The room was exceptional crisp, clean, odour free, quiet, lots of pillows, with ample coffee and tea, and cups (with lids), and of course the shampoos and conditioners. However, the TV had a sound issue, and it took perserverence and fiddling to prevent the distortion... More

The beds were so comfy. Nice variety of pillows was appreciated. Room was clean but not spic and span as expected from this chain. Breakfast was nice and the location perfect except for a long wait to get out onto the highway. We would stay here again.

Hotel was nice and quiet, and our room was pretty clean. They had some free soup in the breakfast room (seemed to be from Robin's Donut's) which was nice since most places don't have things like that. Shower was great after a day of camping, and breakfast was alright aswell! Would definitely stay again.

I stopped here on business. I made the reservation, in my name. Somehow, the employee at the front desk managed to mess up my name and address, mixing it partially with my coworker, who paid for himself, separate. I have no idea how she managed to merge half of my address with his, and replace my name with his. This... More

The room was very clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and friendly (the person I saw was all smiles). Bathroom was HUGE. It was a very good overnight. Kind of expensive and the damage deposit was like 100.00 Kind of shocked me but it was ok I got it back in the morning.

This is our third time staying at this hotel. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is great. We stayed last week during the middle of the week and they served soups and cheeze and crackers. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Pool is chilly and I wish they had a hot tub. Would recommend.

The front desk clerk was exceptional. Had set up the complimentary crib in our room in advance of our arrival and was exceptionally pleasant throughout our stay. The pool was very cool - too cold but the steam room functioned well (but it needs a deep scrubbing). Breakfast was good; the pancake machine is interesting but the product quality is... More

It was a typical Holiday Inn. Room was roomy with comfortable beds and loved the choice of the firm and soft pillows. Staff was very accommodating and answered our questions. Breakfast was substantial with good choices. Price was reasonable and we would stay here again.
