I recently planned/coordinated a 2-day event for about 60 people at this hotel. Cindy Beason was very helpful with planning the event (I had never done it before) including meals, table setup, etc. Lisa Brooks and Lori Hodges were amazing during the event. They were very attentive to our needs and very patient with changes we requested during the event.... More

My business organization had a two-day event at this hotel for 60 participants which included meals, meeting rooms, and lodging. The event staff were exceptional in making the advanced arrangements, and helping us deal with changing requirements that emerged during the course of the event as well. I would recommend this hotel for business events of this nature.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, however, this is the worst 2 nights of sleep I've had at a hotel. I traveled for business and was in meetings at my client's location for all 3 shifts over 3 days. I needed to take midday naps for about 4 hours, and... More

I can't believe I am providing such a SCATHING review BUT I am and will stand behind it as I have never, ever been so angry, insulted and frustrated with the Holiday Inn.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review Ms.TJAltz . I apologize for not meeting your expectations while visiting our hotel.

I reserved a room, advising I had a pet, and was given a rewards club member room on an upper floor, which I wanted. When I checked in I was advised I was being moved to a pet friendly room on the ground floor in a separate building, which looked like any roadside motel from the 1970's with exterior doors... More

Arrived not knowing what to expect for the money and reviews so was pleasantly surprised. It is not the top of the line for Crown Plaza but the room was good.

I reserved approximately 14 rooms for our out of town guests attending my son's wedding including my wife and I. We also reserved the bridal suite for the bride and groom for two nights.

Recently stayed at this property and found it to be a great place. It couldn’t be more conveniently located to anything you could possibly need during your stay. The room was large, comfortable, well-appointed and well lit. The bathroom was the same. This was probably one of the more recently renovated rooms. The AC worked well and wasn’t too loud.... More
