This hotel looks great in the photos and in the actual lobby, and even the rooms look okay, except the beds look bad (sunken in middle) and are really, really bad in actuality as well. This is our second time staying here and the only reason my husband and I stayed one night here again was that it was Christmas night and the Best Western next door was booked that night. OMG, we will never stay here again.
I am shocked Trip Advisor gave this a certificate of excellence for 2014; my husband and I laughed when we read that. I am sad that a hotel can rename itself (used to be Holiday Inn Express I think) and give itself an exterior "upgrade" but doesn't care to change out the very old, very cheap and uncomfortable beds for at least satisfactory ones. We are also quite surprised at the good reviews for this hotel. Maybe those reviewers have equally poor beds at home?
