I stayed in this hotel June 8th112, 2015. I liked it alot. It's much better than the average Holiday Inn. Great Restaurant and Bar onsite with live entertainment each night. Rooms were very clean, so was the on site fitness room. The pool was a tad bit small though. Oh and Free Wifi :-)

Nice hotel. The overall look and decor was pleasant. Friendly and helpful staff. We booked two standard rooms with 2 queen beds. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. We had a coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave.

The WiFi was strong. I paid $5 with the reservation and had a breakfast buffet, which was nothing special but served the purpose.... More

About the service, is very poor too, they couldn’t even recognize that my room was... More

They have done a great job with this hotel in refurbishment and in educating the staff. Stayed here 4 days and saw the same consistent great service from the team. The pricing here is really good but you need to know that 1. It is 11 miles from the airport and they do not provide shuttle service. Cab ride is... More

I stayed here for an event my church was holding. Everything and everyone was exceptionally delightful! The front desk helped when I needed directions, housekeepers were polite & quiet. Food in the restaurant was amazing! Typically I wouldn't eat hotel food but I didn't feel like going out & what a surprise, I'm glad I didn't, very tasty! My whole... More
