The check in process was easy. It was a nice location near shopping, food, etc. the room was so nice! I didn't realize the hotel was for extended stay. We... More

I stay here when in town on business. Staff is friendly and the location is good. Close to food and shopping. You get a discount at the IHOP near by as well. I recommend it because it has the essentials that you need at a fair price.

I recently stayed at this hotel and while the property and overall experience was good, I had a horrible experience with the hotel management upon check-in. General Manager Ken Mobarek was extremely rude because I had a discounted rate and was doing his very best to intimidate me into leaving and staying at another non-Holiday Inn hotel. After at least... More

Hello all, I request you not to choose this hotel. Recently during my stay here I lost my money from hotel room. Hotel management was not ready to help me. They just ignored my request. Horrible experience.

My first time staying at this property. I am IHG member. Very clean. Suite was large and roomy for relaxing before settling in at the very large work area that divided the kitchen and living room. Small bathroom, which is fine. I like seeing the real estate used for other areas.
