We ended up staying one night at this hotel when the room we had booked elsewhere was accidentally double-booked. The stay was a tad nostalgic since my parents were actually married on the balcony/upper level overlooking the pool area of the hotel more than 30 years ago! We were given a ground floor poolside room, which was very convenient since... More

Old ancient hotel that has seen better days(probably back when Jimmy Carter was in office). My room was very small, cramped, cluttered, humid and musty. Actually my room smelled like a combination of mold and feet. Yes they did have a dehumidifier in the room, presumably to get the funk and humidity out of the air, however, it's loud and... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times, as most of my extended family lives in Alexandria. I admit that when I was a kid, it was one of my favorite places to go because I could play in the pool and arcade with my parents watching from the pool side room or hot tub. I choose to continue to... More

I'll admit it, I'm a big fan of the old-style Holiday Inns with the big pool area in the middle with the rooms around it. You don't see many of these still operating with the Holiday Inn name so that tells you they've done a pretty good job of keeping it updated. Be careful booking a pool-side room for a... More

we didn't have a reservation, but had no problem getting a room. very convenient access off the interstate. our room had a view of the highway, but we didn't hear the traffic. the front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. the hotel is surprisingly large, with a bigger-than-usual pool and conference/hall facility. it's a little old, but the room...

We stayed here for one night on our way back from MT to IL. The hotel was clean, and the service was great. The room size is typical of older hotels along with the bathroom. We did hear kids running down the hall late at night, so I know it's not sound proof. All linens on the beds were updated... More

Our hotel room smelled moldy and the carpet was gross. The bedding was new; the only good thing about this hotel. No breakfast included; hall ways were hot, smelly. Night manager was unbearable.
