I couldn't ask for a better place to stay even though they were under renovations. It was a little messy in the back parking lot and back entrance with the construction but the room was GREAT. I had stayed the night before at an overly hyped "historical" hotel downtown and it was TERRIBLE. I cancelled the rest of my reservations there and decided to try the holiday Inn. I heard they were renovating and was worried about the noise. I expressed my concern to Erica at the front desk and she said it wouldn't be a problem. She took the time to take me to a room and show me what it was like. She certainly knows customer service in the hospitality business unlike the other hotel who could care less. I would definitely recommend this hotel. If you want a really nice room that's quiet, clean and want superior customer service, give the Holiday Inn a try. The best sleep I had during my trip and great access to the freeway. Oh another great thing is you have a kitchen area with sink, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, fridge and cupboards, they even have some dishes for you to use. Very nice bathrooms with great water pressure in the shower and nice granite counter tops. Upon early morning checkout so I could get on the road, it was nice to have someone cheery like Sam, especially at that hour. It makes all the difference when people enjoy their jobs.
