My boyfriend and I just went to the restaurant today after his uncle and cousin told him how good it was and we were in the area. Well the place was packed! But I don't know why. We were seated and after we ordered it took a long time for the food to come out! And all I got was... More

I stay at "The Holiday" on business all the time. The management is top notch, the staff is excellent, the restaurant is the best in town, and the accommodations are very comfortable. I would recommend "The Holiday" very highly to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay if you are in the area.

The hotel seemed mice in the lobby, but I felt quite unsafe as I approached my room. I had to cross a large banquet room where all the lights were off. I soon realized none of the side doors to the parking lots were locked. There were many unlit areas and the front desk was through two closed doors. I... More

Seeing as we're walking across the country, my wife and I have stayed in our fair share of unique places. So when we came across The Holiday, we were hoping it would be just that--a one-day holiday from our journey. And it was. We so thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Holiday that we actually decided to stay a second... More

I have stayed hear twice now for fishing tournaments on east fork lake. This is a great place to stay, for a small town! They keep the rooms very clean. The staff are helpful and friendly. They have a restaurant that serves great breakfast and dinner. All this and the prices are extremely low.

Stayed there as part of our Big 2013 Road Trip. Room was spacious and clean, but common areas were showing a bit of age. Front desk was very friendly & helpful. And the convenient on-premises restaurant serves up a lot of good food for the money.

I recently stayed for the night at The Holiday, and it was a wonderful experience. The room was beautiful and very clean, and I really appreciated all of the amenities, such as the coffee maker in the room. The restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The wedding that was to be held there that evening was beautifully decorated. I... More

My son accidently left his Zune. I called The Holdiay to see if by chance it was turned in. It had been. Yes, they had it. Does not happen too often anymore. Not sure about COD's anymore so I went to the Fedex Company and paid for a Prepaid label. We faxed it down to them and within 1 week... More

I agree with the other reviews. This motel is certainly older, but they have "spiffed the place up" and my room was clean and comfortable. Heater worked great; small flat screen TV; comfortable bed. Having the restaurant there is also a plus.

This hotel is under new management and you can see the passion of new ownership as you walk through the door. They have rennovated over 75 rooms and the banquet, dining, bar, and pool areas are well kept and newly remodeled. The hot breakfast is great and the buffet dinner was wonderful as well. Most importantly, the staff are wonderful... More
