Traveling east on US 30, you can't see the hotel from the road, No billboards or signs directing guests to turn on access road. No sign at the entrance to the hotel. that's a first. You actually drive into the hotel from the back of hotel. Ample parking except for RV's or vehicles with trailers. The reservation of two rooms... More

When travelling in the area for business, I always stay at this hotel. The front desk staff members are friendly, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast is hot. The rooms have a multitude of electrical outlets for all your technology and good lighting. I normally don't have any trouble with internet access; however, a severe storm rolled through knocking...

We enjoy staying at Holiday Inn for the breakfast. Although we now feel the beds are too soft (pillow tops and you have to wake up to turn over.) We were allowed to check in a little early which is always nice. We had to get a couple more sets of towels, but hey it was an early check in.... More

We stayed here for two nights while in town for a wedding. The staff was extremely friendly and always ready to assist. There were always fresh baked cookies in the lobby. The room itself was spacious and clean. Our only complaint was that the room smelled a bit musty and the sheets also smelled like they were nearing the end... More

My husband was here for business, so the kids and I decided to go along for something to do. The room was very spacious for all four of us, with two queen beds, NOT fulls!

We stayed for one night for a short nights sleep on our way to New York. We checked in after midnight but it was quick and easy. Front desk clerk was pleasant and efficient.
