We stayed at this property driving home from Florida. The staff is very friendly, but the property is under renovation and needs it. The HVAC didn't work all that well, the bed not very comfortable (very unusual for a HI), the internet and TV worked sporadically and even though there was a rain storm this is important to a traveler....

Room was hot and musty smelling. We turned air on but it never got cool just tempid even after we turned it on lower. Pool was FREEZING. We were only here for a night thankfully. Staff seemed friendly but couldn't help with our concerns.

Pet friendly hotel. Good appearance overall, common areas on the first floor, grounds look good and clean, even on a Sunday. Room was clean, HVAC worked well, as the TV and wifi. Beds are comfortable and noise is low even on a pet friendly floor. Room furniture is worn, but clean. Bathroom was fine and clean, even if the sink... More

This hotel is not your typical Holiday Inn standard at this location. We checked in late and the staff was very friendly. The condition of the hotel is poor. We were told the hotel was undergoing some remodeling. The room needed to be updated. The bathroom however was dirty and there was black mold on the towel bar. After seeing... More

This one was quite pathetic! End of July - pool was OUT OF SERVICE! No fresh coffee in the lobby! The night staff that checked us in was excellent EXCEPT for the fact that they charge 20% extra for "incidentals" without mentioning a word of it, so imagine my surprise when the charge came through! The morning staff (female) was... More

3rd time here and we had no issues. Nice room, comfy bed and no noise. Breakfast is available in the restaurant or walk to McDonald's across the parking lot as this is a Holiday Inn not a Holiday Inn Express with the continental free breakfast.

Stayed here on our way to FL from PA the last 3 years specifically for the indoor pool. The last 2 years it has been to cold to swim in. No free breakfast either. Will probably not stay here again due to pool temp and overpricing

I recently made a reservation for the hotel as part of my trip from FL to NJ. I obtained the AAA rate, which allowed cancellations. But the confirmation came up as "Smoking" (first surprise), so I went onto an edit screen and changed to same accomodation but non -smoking ($6 extra). Nowhere on that screen did it state non-cancellable, but... More
