We first went to the wrong hotel--wrong chain--in the wrong part of town. The helpful folks at reservation line confirmed our reservations and gave us directions. We were running late for a concert and I was flustered to say the least. But then we arrived and Mr. Johnson met us with a smile and quickly got us checked in. He... More

Me and family stayed here for 3 nights last month and this is the first Holiday Inn we've ever stayed in as we usually stay in other IHG chains like Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites; hotels that both offer complimentary breakfast. This hotel is in a good central location very close to the mall. At check in, we were... More

Stay at the hotel often on business travel. Always clean. Friendly staff. Convenient location to restaurants, casinos and shopping needs. Restaurant and bar downstairs reasonably priced and good selection, quality if you decide to stay in.

Hotel was nice, but don't let them fool you, wifi is very scattered, if they even have it all. When I called the desk to inquire, they said sorry, some rooms don't get very good coverage. In my room, I couldn't even SEE a signal at all. Not good.

My first impression was the location and upkeep were very accommodating and clean. That impression has not changed since my stay. The feel of the location is safe, which brings peace of mind, especially when traveling with your family and children. The staff are very friendly and courteous, and I had no problems with my room. The pool is a... More

We came to this hotel after comfort inn kicked us out since they had no rooms available for our next day stay. The location was a tiny bit worrisome due to the fact that the homes we saw out if our window had bars on their windows- but we weren't too worried about it. It is right next to plenty... More

This was our second and last stay at this hotel. They would not accept government discount because it was reserved online where there was no option. No biggie but got worse. The 3rd floor reeked of some citrus disinfectant. We opened the door to room to the smell of something moldy. Dustbunnies all over wall and lamps. The toilet paper... More

This hotel looks brand new, or recently remodeled. Rooms were nice and clean. Location was great, with plenty of restaurants and L'auberge Casino about 5-10 min away. Staff was very nice. Price was a little high, esp. considering breakfast was not included. Would stay there again, though.

The staff was so polite, friendly and accommodating. Indoor pool was fun. The restaurant was surprisingly good and, again, staff was great. Not the best location but certainly accessible to all parts of the city. We would stay there in the future.
