This was a great location. Close enough to everything and far enough from the hustle and bustle. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was awesome with plenty too choose from including gluten free bagels. Coffee 24/7 and evening cookies, yummy! Room and bathroom were very clean. No mold, smells or noise. Beds were mildly firm and comfortable and had variety... More

A very comfortable hotel. We haven't stayed at Holiday Inn for a long time. Glad we decided to stay here with our pet. Very accomodating and staff were very helpful. We would definitely stay again when in the area.

The hotel was very clean and they had a reasonable pet policy. We arrived late at night and got into our room without any issues. Convenient location right off of Interstate 10. Would definitely return.

My family stayed here one night on our way back home and when we first walked in the lobby, we were greeted with a slightly off odor. Then we went to our room on the 4th floor and the hallway reeked of musty cigarette smoke. Luckily our room didn't smell, but it was still off-putting to get knocked in the... More

Travelling North we had originally booked another Holiday Inn just of I 75 but checking in found it to be old, under renovations and the room stank.
