As a rewards member who regularly stays at Holiday Inn's across the country for business, this Holiday Inn definitely did NOT meet expectations or standards. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the hotel is generally poorly maintained. The carpets in the hallways and room were visibly soiled. Even if a hotel is going to be remodeled, there is no excuse not... More

This is one of the few pet friendly hotels in the area. While it is not a five star beauty it's a decent hotel. The room was spacious and clean, but the hotel is definitely showing its age. My biggest complaint was the smell of sewage or old trash in the morning in the hall ways. It was absolutely disgusting.

We were on our way from Indianapolis to Minneapolis and had to stop somewhere. We chose this hotel but it is nothing spectacular. Hotel is ok. Rooms are ok. Wireless was available.

Jessica G, It is a little bit of a maze, and overall I glad you had a decent stay. There are some draw backs, and when our renovations start that will clear up a lot of confusion with this giant Maze of a building. We hope to have you as a valued guest the next time you are in the... More

Our room at the hotel wasn't cleaned thoroughly, as we found an empty prescription pill bottle from 2014 and heard what sounded like rodents in the vent. We stayed here for a wedding, and the reception tables were so tightly packed together that it was almost impossible to leave our table for any reason. I've called to speak with the... More

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 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
