I stay at Holiday Inn properties all the time as its my hotel brand of choice and typically clean, quiet and consistent. Originally wanted to check into the HI across the road on Marriott drive, but they were out of double queen rooms due to a tournament group in town. Instead, we turned around and went to this Buck Owens drive location.
Not on a very nice street and parking wasn't as ample as most HI properties....walk into lobby and notice a cheesy looking spiral staircase flanking the lobby, looks a bit much for this place. Two men standing at check in desk with glazed looks on their face...not very amiable expressions, but we got a room anyway and headed upstairs for the nite.
The room was quiet as promised, though stepping into the hallway, sounds reverberated in all directions and the sound of the freeway was quite loud and coming from the opposite side of the hotel. I can see why so many guests complain about being placed on the highway side of this hotel. The bathroom floor was appalling with hair collected into the wall corners and tub. The variable shower settings and jet sprays were highly underwhelming. I'm not usually one for body jet showers, but opted to give them a try this time. What ensued was water spraying out in all directions from the base of the jet. Had there been no shower curtain in place, a puddle would have resulted on the floor.
Beds were comfortable and pillows were fine. Breakfast in the dining room was good as always...but this hotel is not one I'd stay at again. It is not as updated or "clean" feeling as other Holiday Inn properties, to me at least. I suggest you check out the Marriott drive Holiday Inn around the corner, behind the Black Angus.
