The attractive hotel has seen significant upgrades. It sports a fancy nightclub/bar, on site restaurant and other amenities. Parking is plentiful although it can get tight when the live music starts. It is close to local restaurants and is located just off the freeway. Rooms have been upgraded and are comfortable. HOWEVER the wireless service sucks. It constantly drops the... More

We found this Holiday Inn to have a very friendly and helpful staff. The servers in the restaurant were very accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a reunion in the ballroom, which was very nice. The hotel is close to restaurants and shopping. No problem connecting to WiFi. We were on the second floor.

I have been staying here for several years, and I have NEVER been more disappointed than this past year. It's a shame, because the ballrooms are beautiful but the service and staff this year were completely off the mark. Room service was lackluster, at best. We often did not have towels, and when we called for them, it took 4... More

I stayed here during a bridge tournament. The public areas were attractive. Our room was comfortable but could have been better. It did not have a refrigerator, which I would have appreciated. Also, there was a large chair and ottoman which were too large and in the way. What I did not understand was why the beds (a 2-bed room)... More

Wasn't a bad stay at all. Apparently the lobby restaurant is some kind of "club scene" which can be a little annoying when you're there for work. The room was nice and the maids were prompt. Parking situation is hectic and it is difficult to find a space after dinner time. B+ hotel
