Stayed in the tower. It was quiet. Two big beds nicely appointed. Comfy room. Everything worked. Staff was friendly and helpful. Seemed modern and very clean. The hotel us pet friendly but they cleaned it well. I am allergic to dogs and cats..so it is an issue for me. Breakfast buffet was very good. Would recommend.

Just had our wedding at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Rd. It was great. Staff, location, food, rooms, everything was great. Great bar in the hotel as well for a fun after party. Both pools inside and out were also very clean and the surroundings very clean. I would recommend.

This hotel has the bones to be a great resort. However, it is so outdated it is going to take some money. The carpets are disgusting. The room was adequate as the bathroom is from the 1980's. We ordered breakfast at The Grille and the waitress brought the bill before our food. The food, was not good as the eggs... More

The first thing that struck me when we walked in was the smell. It was extremely musty/mildewy smelling. I left the exhaust fan and AC running when we went out to dinner in the hopes it would clear up, but it never did. The carpet needs updating and was damp. The toilet tank had a crack in it and the...

After reading some comments on Trip Advisor we decided to book a room in the tower. Considering the chlorine smell when passing the other rooms this was probably a good idea, but perhaps you cannot smell that inside the room anyway. Our two queen size bed room was quite nice. It is equipped with a safe and a refrigerator. The... More
