We made a same day reservation on a last minute trip and were pleasantly surprised to find a new big city style Holiday Inn Express. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included and wonderful. Recommended.

We have stayed here three times, twice with our basketball team and once with our volleyball team. The manager at the hotel always makes sure we have everything we need and all our rooms ready when we arrive. The hotel staff is so accommodating and WE LOVED the Hot Wings and Refreshments served in the lobby, it was great. Breakfast... More

Made a reservation , on the road, during a rain storm . Could have taken advantage of us and charged more. Best room on our trip. Everything worked and very clean. This is one of the best holiday inn's we have stayed.

Even though they don't have much competition, the people here go out of their way to meet your needs. Joni does a great job and everyone is very pleasant. The breakfast is typical but well done and always fresh. Hotel is clean and well maintained. Highly recommended!
