This place is disgusting!!!! I had to write a review b/c it's rating is too high and I want to save others from experiencing the anguish I was subjected to from staying there. Boogers on the wall, funky smells in the hotel, hair under the sheets, balls of hair in the "pool swamp", white stains on the furniture that were... More

My family attempted to stay at this hotel for a one night get away. We booked the room on a website I will refuse to mention. Upon arrival my wife was checking in while I and my son decided to check out the pool. At the pool we found the spa was closed with caution tape wrapped around it and... More

This hotel has had better days. It's old and out of date. It would take several million to get this hotel to it's glory days. The mattresses are old and worn out. The furniture has a lot of dings and scratches. The bathroom had hair in the corners. Stains on the carpets in the rooms and halls. The paint was... More

The 2013 upgrades to the hotel must have been furniture not much else. The stinch in the lobby was overwhelming upon arrival! One of the two elevators stayed broken 3 out of the 4 nights we were there making wait times very long. The sheets were old and the pillows were less than acceptable. I suggest you bring your own...

As soon as you entered the building there was a very unpleasant smell that carried throughout the hotel. Our room was nice and the bed was really comfortable. There was trash and crumbs on the floor around the trash can. The shower/bath was really dated, and there was very little water pressure. Check in was really easy. The next morning... More

I was concerned by the outward appearance of the hotel when I drove up, and there is a strange, strong odor in the lobby. However, the rooms are fairly clean. The bathroom is dark but adequate. The decor is modern. I found the mattress acceptable but not overly comfortable, and the bedding is thin. Would I stay here again? Maybe,... More

It is obvious this property is tired. They are working to provide upgrades and the room wasn't bad. The windows were filthy on the outside and looked like they weren't sealed. This former Holiday Inn lost it's badge and must do something to regain it or drop down to independent status as it is now. I've stayed here occasionally since... More

I was a little worried. There was a smell in the lobby that was awful. When I got to my room on the 3rd floor it was less but still bad. My room was really really nice. And it smelled great! I looked out the window and saw they were putting a Tar roof on the level below me. The... More

I only had the website's pictures to go on to make my decision to book the hotel. I was satisfied in every way. The Norman Hotel was formerly a Holiday Inn, but has recently been redecorated and has many nice upgrades throughout the hotel. The lobby looked very nice and the staff were friendly from the get-go (thanks Janet and... More

This hotel is obviously an old Holiday Inn, the lobby is dated, the hallways smell musty. The room itself is not bad. The mattresses are firm, plenty of good pillows, it's clean, nice TV, good water pressure in shower and the a/c works well. Better lighting would be nice. But overall a nice room. The pool is indoor and cloudy.... More
