We booked a room at the Holiday Inn airport b/c my daughter had an early morning flight, and after checking reviews and prices for other area hotels, we chose Holiday Inn primarily b/c of its name and reputation. However, it was very disappointing. The halls and room were stinky (smelled sour and dirty), the decor was unkempt and outdated, and there were many visible signs of decay. The wall in my room had a bulge b/c of obvious water damage.
I wanted a snack, so I went to the hotel restaurant and ordered chips and salsa. It took about 45 minutes to get the order. The snack was good, but not worth a 45 minute wait. The restaurant, like the rest of the hotel is not kept well. It, too, stinks, is dirty, and is outdated.
The television was constantly going out as was the Internet connection. I ended up using my hotspot b/c the hotel wi-fi kept failing. We called the desk and asked if this was typical, and she said it was....that it was Direct TV, and they have trouble everywhere. Hmmm.
The toilet had trouble flushing. We kept having to jiggle the handle in order for it to flush correctly.
I will never stay here again! I cannot imagine why people are posting positive comments about this place. It is not nice, and I don't recommend it to anyone!!!
