This is a great holiday inn located in a convenient part of town. It is near the mall and several restaurants. It's only feet from Buffalo Wild Wings. I stayed in two different rooms and both were very clean. The indoor pool was warm which was nice given how cold it was outside. The staff was friendly and helpful. I... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on a Business trip. Three story hotel, parking lot is kind of small. Many resturants in the area. Room was nicely appointed and had a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was the standard fare and ready on time every morning. The wifi was terrible and I ended up... More

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...
