During our PCS to California from Ohio, my husband, son, dog and I stayed here. The room was nice and overall our stay was average. My husband left his military uniform there so they said that it would be sent to us the next business day (We left Saturday (8/23/14) so it would be sent Monday) They charged our card... More

Floor plan and layout was confusing. Got lost trying to get to the pool. Only 1 towel when I got there so asked front desk for more and they said they would have some delivered. 20 minutes later. No towlels. Beds were comfortable and I liked the choice of soft/firm pillow. Fridge was nice to have but needed to be... More

I suspected this was an older Holiday Inn when I made the reservation and had no idea what to expect. When I went in the clerk asked me if I would mind if he upgraded us to a suite. Not at all! This place has a rather quirky layout. Our suite was on the third floor, next to the fitness... More

Dear Betty R, Thank you for posting your review of our hotel. Our layout is definitely unique. When it was originally built as the Iron Man Inn, it was convenient and safe because there are same level exits on the First, Second, and Third floors. And I'm glad you got to enjoy our suite. Sounds like it worked out really... More

While it is often difficult to differentiate between various properties in the same chain, it usually is the staff that makes the difference in the experience. This property is well located and all rooms and amenities are up to standard expectation for the parent company. What makes it unique is the well versed and genuinely motivated staff. Maybe because it... More

I smelled a peculiar odor as soon as I walked in the door. It was a musty/cigarette smoke smell. I thought it would improve once I got to my room, but it didn't. I called the front desk to inquire whether I was place in a smoking room and the attendant told me I wasn't. He offered a different room,... More

I just stayed here this past weekend and had a horrible experience. The room smelled bad, was very dirty and falling apart. We could even open the closet due to the doors hanging off the track. I didn't even mention my displeasure to the staff since it was only a quick weekend away. My main issue came at the end... More

Dear Janet V., I'm sorry to hear about your recent late check out mix-up here. We offer our guests late checkouts as late as 2pm when we can. Looks like a pretty significant miscommunication between our front desk staff and our housekeepers. Now that you've taken the time to let us know that it happened, we can be more careful... More

Conveniently located off I-80, this hotel is situated near major medical facilities and shopping plazas. The exterior is attractive, and the primo parking spaces reserved for IHG Reward Members in front are a big plus. Inside, the lobby is bright and attractive; the front desk staff is courteous and professional. This hotel has some issues, though. The main hallway smells... More

First of all, this is a full-on Holiday Inn, not a Holliday In Express (HIE), so. not the complimentary breakfast buffet-thingy that HIE does so well, but this HI has a full-up Restaurant with room service! We ate before we got to the hotel, but the wonderful smells that wafted my way as I unloaded the car made me wish... More

When we arrived the parking lot was full of motorcycles. I thought we might have made a wrong turn when we got on I-80 and we were in South Dakota. The motorcycles belonged to the rough and tough Defenders! Actually, they defend citizens and ensure public safety as officers of the law, when not on their scooters. It is a... More
