One day in January, I was working my last night twelve hour shift in my normal three night workset before my short weekend at Motiva Enterprises and I was just getting off Friday morning and this was during the wintry mix ice storm in January that made the overpasses and bridges very hazardous to transverse that they had to close...

Nice building and accommodations, but a lack of attention to detail makes this a less than desirable location. I killed two huge roaches in the hallway outside my room at different times...who knows how many are still there? The breakfast buffet is barely that. One meat and very few selections. All the staff is very nice and helpful, looks like... More

Had the pleasure of meeting hotel owner who was busy setting up a beautiful Christmas display in the hotel's lobby. What a treasure to see. My wife and I took our grand daughter there which as one might expect, her little eyes were saucer big. This whas become an annual traidtion for us when in town.

Due to a mix up on our reservations at Holiday Inn Express and no rooms available to meet out needs we were sent over this hotel. Pro: The receptionist Debbie was great.

I was excited to stay at this property because the pics made it look beautiful and i thought it was an interior corridor. Not the case. Only the king beds are interior. There is no kind of breakfast bar. While the pool had a nice layout but it was not clean. Bugs and dubris were floating about. The staff was... More

We enjoyed our two week stay. Rooms are cleaned daily, sheets changed, and the beds are so comfortable. The pool was amazing, surrounded by palm trees,  lounge chairs and tables! The gym was nice with two treadmills, stair-stepper, weight machine, and two TVs. Complimentary bath and bodyworks lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and face/body soap. So much nicer than the normal stinky... More

The hotel is a renovated, old Holiday Inn. It is a "full service" hotel with a restaurant. If you get a room, make sure it is in the "tower" or your room will have a door that opens up into the parking lot. Rooms are modern, wireless works fine, and the restaurant is nothing special but is suitable if you... More

We were a large party and the hotel was able to accommodate all of us; the rooms very clean, very efficient and the staff was very helpfu and friendly.
