I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. I was a little worried when I first pulled up since the outside was not to appealing. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

This holiday inn had nice rooms, although a bit noisy. The breakfast was good and the service was average. I wouldn't mind recommending people to this holiday inn. One thing though, make sure to not check out late since they do charge for each hour you don't check out.

This was a own night stay. The accommodations were adequate but not anything special. We were given a room that had a shared door and you could hear all of the conversations and television from the next room. Fortunately they went to bed early or it would have been a problem. Seemed clean but the toilet ran all night. Continental... More
