We just stayed for one night on the weekend to get away. We arrived pretty late - just before midnight. Parking lot was pretty full in the front, but it was a weekend. Hotel is just right off the Interstate so it was easy to get to. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was on the fourth floor and... More

This is one of, if not THE grossest places I've ever stayed. We walked into a tiny room that smelled like it had been deluged in Lysol. We wanted to put water in the refrigerator but how is that possible if the fridge's door doesn't open?? I attempted to work out at the fitness center but the smell of mold... More

Servers in the hotel restaurant; Debbie for breakfast and Jesus for dinner were amazing, overly friendly and very professional. Our room 208 had a crack in the window from top to bottom with only clear tape holding it together, glad we did not have kids with us, looked dangerous. Had one night when we went down to the hotel bar... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was nice. You could tell that some parts of it were a little old, but just little cosmetic stuff. The bed was super comfortable. My wife even said it was the most comfortable bed she's ever slept on.... More

I've stayed in really nice Holiday Inns, and that's the reason why I booked this place (it was Holiday Inn when I booked), but it looks kinda run down and dingy when you first walk in. The lobby and the hallways look like some 1.5 or 2 star hotels I've stayed in. The first room assigned wasn't clean, but the... More

We booked thru Baylor Univ. for a basketball tournament. At the time our reservations were made, it was a Holiday Inn but apparently changed ownership to a Clarion in the interim. Upon arrival in my room, there were large brown stains on the curtains which I immediately reported to the front desk. The front entrance, hall ways, stair wells were... More

First issue was the name of the hotel changed from time of booking and stay. It would have been nice to be notified so that locating would have been easier. Convienient location once I found it. Ice machine did not work on my floor or the one below so had to go to the first floor. The Air Conditioner in... More

Very friendly staff, really good food available & we were totally impressed how clean the room was & how nice the bed was. Definitely want to remember this hotel so when we are traveling between Idaho and Ohio again we can use this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend while attending a wedding. First of all it is no longer a Holiday Inn, it is a Clarion Inn but since I did a pre-pay we thought we would keep our reservation. The elevator had actual hand prints in mud on the door and walls inside. The hallway was very hot and... More

This Hotel from outside appearances is underwhelming. It could use a parking lot revamp. The location however is spectacular directly off the interstate... Perfect. Make sure you get that free breakfast seriously. I have not been to any other hotel around the area offering a sit down menu free breakfast with excellent choices and great fresh food and coffee. But... More
