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

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

Dear Alan G, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I know our property is a little on the older side, so our maintenance team works hard to keep everything in tip top working condition. We regularly clean carpets, re-caulk tubs, and do everything we can to make sure our hotel is a comfortable... More

We stayed here with another couple the weekend of April 10th specifically for the Friday night Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet As advertised. Well, it doesn't exis and apparently hasn't for over a month. Rooms: Clean. Bathrooms: Clean but extremely small.

Dear Brian C, I'm sorry that things didn't go well while you were here. The River City Beefstro stopped serving the Prime Rib & Seafood Buffet for a number of reasons, not least of which that we're preparing for a restaurant renovation. As for the problem with the pool, we have strict rules about no glass in that area, posted... 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

Our stay at this Holiday Inn Express was very nice, one night on a cross-country drive. The common areas and room were all very clean and up-to date. Another review said the lobby was outdated but we didn't think this at all. The pool area is nice (small pool), and our dip in the hot tub was perfect. The room... More

I was more than disappointed in this hotel. I'm a firm believer in the IHG family and frequently stay with their brand. I will not be staying there again! The room was not cleaned well. Front desk staff was slow in helping get shampoo/conditioner (took over 4 hours). Front desk staff was more interested in eating in the lobby while... More

This hotel has very friendly staff. it is older décor in the lobby areas. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable.

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.

No breakfast is included. The place is behind, and attached to the Hampton??? I could hear someone pacing above my room all night long.
