The only reason I'm giving this Holiday Inn Express any stars at all is because the location is good and the staff were all so friendly and helpful and when all other places to stay were filled up, at least this place had a vacancy.
It's been years since we stayed in such a rundown place that looks like they have done nothing to upgrade since the 70s. The nice paint job on the outside masks what the inside looks like. The ceiling of the room had that sprayed on 'popcorn' ceiling, and I am not clear whether that always means it is asbestos. Another part of the ceiling that had those white acoustic panels had tape holding broken parts together. The elevator was shabby beyond belief and also the foyer leading from the lobby to the elevator. It wasn't as if we got it cheap. We paid over $200 for each of the two nights we stayed there. There is a breakfast included, but it is very generic and the scrambled eggs in the buffet were cold and so was the coffee.
