This hotel has very friendly staff. it is older décor in the lobby areas. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. I thought the bathroom and vanity area were very small for the size of this room. We had a conference in the hospitality suite and it was just an odd room with a bathroom right in... More

The hotel is in terrible shape. It is run down building. The hallways smell badly. The room service leftover from the room across mine has not been removed for 26 hours. The floors are not concrete and one can hear person walking in the room above. The official hotel website says that windows can be open by guest. They are... More

No breakfast is included. The place is behind, and attached to the Hampton??? I could hear someone pacing above my room all night long. The pool was gross, the hot tub had so much chemical it felt like it was burning my skin. I am not a picky person and I've never written a negative review, but there's a first... More

Dear Chris-Kerri, I wanted to send a quick note replying to your comments and apologize for the inconveniences you had during your stay. You are right, we do not offer a complimentary breakfast. We are a full service hotel so we offer more amenities than your standard hotel with a free continental breakfast. (i.e. room service, shuttle, and full restaurant... More

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

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

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
