We stopped here on a long road trip east to have an easy in/out overnight. The room was spacious, probably because it was a handicapped room. Donning swim suits we headed for the hotel pool. The pool was okay but the water was a little strange - my son said it felt thick. The whirlpool was not working - just... More

Stayed here for two nights. Front desk clerk said the hotel was about 10yrs old, but it seemed like new. Overall pretty clean except some hairs in the shower that weren't ours. The bed was one of the best we've slept in while traveling and we've stayed it some expensive hotels before. Breakfast was nice and was slightly different each... More

This is a great location, with a grocery store and restaurant nearby. We stayed in a mini-suite, so that totally worked out for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was typical of what you get anywhere - with the exception of the automatic pancake maker. That was great, and easier to use than the waffle makers... More

This hotel is very well decorated and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was hot and fresh, and the eating area at this Holiday Inn was very spacious, more like a Hampton Inn than the older Holiday Inns.

Average accommodations..but not average was the front desk clerk (too bad I didn't get his name) who hates his job. Before I even said anything to him, he said "it's not time to check in yet" no "hello" no "may I help you"…I explained that I was already a guest and I had another question. I actually made a game...

He tried to get me off his back as quickly as possible. No priority club goodie bag. Kinda felt being nickle and dimed. No free upgrade for platinum member. I have stayed countless times and got used to automatic upgrade. It never happened to me before. Otherwise, it is clean and comfy. Okay hotel.

We arrived very late, but check in was a breeze. The lady checking us in was efficient, and gave us the usual information about breakfast, wi-fi, etc. She then presented me with my Priority club "snack" of water and fritos. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the ac worked great without being too noisey. My only complaint,... More
