I've become a major fan of Holiday Inn's over the past few years, especially Holiday Inn Express. It seems maybe ten years ago they made a very good corporate decision to create a quality standard and to enforce it with their franchise holders. That has made them a credible place to stay where one knows what they're going to get... More

I have been to this hotel a number of times for business. Unfortunately, I have never used the water park that is attached to the hotel but, visiting children come down the halls dripping wet and smiling. This hotel, though a bit dated, is maintained well and kept clean. The staff is always welcoming and their on site restaurant is... More

We brought 3 grandkids, one mom and ourselves and stayed in a family suite. Our only issue there was one bathroom for 6 people! Since 7 waterpark passes are included so it is a pretty good value. The waterpark is fairly small, but that helped us keep track of the kids. They had no trouble keeping busy and having fun... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn while my son was participating in a local baseball tournament, and I found it to be a nice, quiet hotel.
