The stay was good, however, my card was charged twice and when I brought it to their attention they said one was just a hold. Two days later I tried to call them to discuss it and was put on hold for 10 minutes. I hung up and called back and they never answered, I called several times that evening... More

Needed a room for a night in Palestine, and Holiday Inn is usually a reliable brand. I reserved a room well in advance, and was pleased to be able to reserve a room with a jacuzzi tub (like in the picture on this site). We checked into a hotel that was obviously being renovated. No problem. They had a temporary... More

I made reservations for my elderly mother and myself in what they call a handicap room. The bathroom had one grab bar to the right of the toilet, to high to reach. That's it! I asked for the manager, and she very politely told me all Holiday Inns are the same and this is what they consider a handicap room.... More

The fact that the hotel is being renovated is undeniable. There are caution signs as soon as you walk in. We had to look around to see the temporary check in desk. The check in lady did not mention a wifi code, nor write one down, so we had to call the front desk once we got to the room.... More

We reserved a block of rooms to accomodate friends and family traveling to attend our daughter's wedding. The front desk staff was absolutely wonderful. Ginger went above and beyond meeting our every need. The hotel, despite the fact it is under construction, was clean and organized. The breakfast provided an excellent variety of foods to choose from, and if it... More

It's been almost a year since I've stayed here, but this place was so accommodating that I had to write a review. They offered excellent service to my entire family for my brother's wedding.

Clean room and great breakfast. Staff was pleasant and attentive. Had to initial on check-in that car was parked at own risk. That did not leave a warm and fuzzy feeling. Otherwise it was a decent night stay. Hostess Gwen was a sweetie.
