Nicely located on top of a hill. Very nice view. Some parts of the hotel were being renovated, though I couldn't tell where, just saw the "pardon our mess" sign. Close to a couple of restaurants made getting dinner easy.

I have to start by saying the hotel is in renovations and they have some issues due to the renovations in progress. The room was comfortable and clean. I did stay two nights. The hotel staff was not the friendliest but they were professional and efficient.

The hotel is in the middle of renovation. I was given a room on 3rd floor and the room smelled like it was a previous smoking room, BUT with a SUPER OVERLY clean smell. I asked for a different room after standing there for 1 minute. Then room was old and needed to be renovated. I was moved to the... More

I am so sorry you found your guest room unacceptable. Our housekeepers work very hard to keep our guest rooms clean and an unacceptable guest room is not the standard at our hotel. My sincerest apologies. I hope you consider staying with us again. We’d love to have you as our guest the next time you are in the area. More

This hotel was being remodeled when we arrived. It was clean and in a safe place. Free breakfast is provided. The staff was helpful and friendly. This was a great place to stop for the night. Loved large bathroom. Bedding good. Lots of room in the room.

We are flying out tomorrow. This is a great value hotel to stay in, catch a shuttle to the airport, leave our car here, and the driving to someone else! Undergoing remodeling. Our room is nice. Clean, neat, and meets our approval. Great breakfast. You can bank on HIX! We have always been pleased.

Downstairs is in the process of remodeling but everything was nice on the 4th floor. A nice big room with a king size bed. All staff members that I came in contact with were friendly and helpful. The breakfast bar had a good selection and was well stocked. While my husband was working, I found the motel not too far... More

This may be a good choice someday, but it isn't now. Renovations going on and certainly needed. In fact, IHG should change the name to Holiday Inn Depress. Really dirty carpet in room.
