It looks like they are in need of a major overhaul or were in the process of doing one. My room had a nice new big TV, fridge, micro, etc but some of the hotel amenities outside needed some improvement. My room also had a sewage smell that I reported to the front desk. It was very unpleasant. There were... More

hostman1, I appreciate the feedback. Both positive and negative. However, the good part is that we are going through renovations. Since there's no good time to do renovations we hope we can earn your business when our renovations are all done. Plus we will have vending machines, that take dollar bills and that have water. I do apologize for the... More

This is quite a labyrinthine hotel that seems to be attached to a Hampton Inn and shares a restaurant. It is interesting how the different floors access ground level. It must be built into a hill. The fitness center has windows and actually has a little bit more varied equipment than many hotels. It smells good, it is quiet, and... More

We stay at Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express where ever we travel. This hotel was a big disappointment. Our elevator doesn't work, 2 days and not even a sign in it to give warning ( yes we reported it ) Coffee maker in room doesn't work, signs for the restaurant are not clear. The halls smell of smoke.

We found the hotel to have a confusing configuration with the elevators out of the way. On Saturday night the restaurant was empty except for our party of six and another couple. In spite of this, the service was poor and my food was cold. I had ordered shrimp on a skewer with brown rice and broccoli. The six shrimp... More

We stopped here for one night on our cross country move with our dogs. We were so happy to find a place that allowed 3 large dogs (50 lbs). Most pet friendly hotels limit the number of dogs to 2 and set the weight limit at 25 lbs. Our room was large and clean. There is a restaurant with full... More

Dear AllyMcFee, I'm so happy to hear that your stay went well! We love pets, and recognize that a lot of hotels have restrictions that make it tough to find a place to stay for pet parents. We do our best to accommodate the furry friends that travel with our guests. Thank you for taking the time to write a... More

We ended up here because the new Holiday Inn Express was full. The HIE gave us a coupon that reduced the price. While the room was clean and comfortable I was surprised at the degree of wear and tear. Normally HI rooms are top notch and this one was like a Super 8. There was even pink and black mold... More

This is an aging HI that is certainly adequate but not much more. It did not seem to be a good value at the rate that I paid. It is in an out-of-the-way location. The room was adequate but basic with an extremely small bathroom. This HI would benefit from renovation/updating. On the bright side, the restaurant was pretty good... More
