We come every year for my son's soccer tournament, Baker Blast. Staff is always friends. The breakfast always include a great variety, and the kids really look forward to the warm cookies at night. Keeping the gourmet coffee pot going all evening is definitely appreciated:) We'll be back in October. As a family of 5, we had a more than... More

Older hotel. We had a non-smoking room which was on the same floor as smoking rooms. Our room was the last non-smoking room and the room right next store was smoking. The whole hall smelled of smoke. Floors should be all non-smoking rather than splitting up a hall in my opinion. Room was just ok the smoking smell killed it... More

Stayed at this property in early July for one night and utilized the stay and fly parking for out trip to Calf. We have stayed here a number of times over the last few years based simply on brand and loyalty points. Upon arrival, there was nothing to signify being a priority club member, which is something I have received... More

Just finished a long term stay here. The hotel is a little dated but that being said, it is in good condition. The room was a good size, the bed was comfortable, pillows too, but the chair was horribly stiff. Internet was great in the room, spotty on the patio. Too bad because the outdoor space was beautiful so I... More

We have stayed here many times over the past few years. We have made suggestions to Holiday Inns, that this property needs more than two handicapped parking spots. NO CHANGE! I realise that the building is inherently noisy due to it's construction. Last weekend we cancelled our reservation at the Hampton to stay here again,paying more money because where we... More

Stayed here on a Hotwire deal to take a campus tour of WWU. We were booked in a smoking room, unfortunately, but the staff were helpful in moving us to a non-smoking room. The room was clean and spacious, with excellent amenities. In our standard room there was a 42" TV, fridge, and microwave, as well as coffee-making supplies. I... More

Not usually a fan of Holiday Inns, we ended a road trip and stayed here because we were too tired to battle the border. unlike a most of the hotels in the area that are on main highways or thoroughfares, the hotel is just off Meridian which made it so peaceful and quiet. Woke up to birds not traffic!! It... More
