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

Very pleased with the stay. Rooms were clean and updated. The restaurant in the lobby was a very convenient place to catch up on some computer work. Friendly staff with easy check in and out. Overall the best hotel on the exit, not only for business but family travelers.
