After booking my week long stay at the Holiday Inn almost a month in advance, I started to see some reviews that were very disheartening; such as bugs, mold, non-functioning a/c units, you name it, someone complined about it.
When my wife and I arrived on site, we excited to see such a fresh and unique hotel rather than 'cookie cutter' htels you would normally find. We booked a King Studio, mid-courtyard on the lower floor and it was perfect! I have stayed in some very seedy hotels before, but this is far from even your 'average' hotel. The inner courtyard gives you protection from the rain when playing on the minigolf course or walking between rooms and the pool, Jimmy Guana's, the elevator and stairs , etc. The room was very clean and they even stock the restrooms with Bath & Body Works products like shampoo, conditioner and lotion. I have also seen some complaints about the small windows, but let me tell ou, we had a large picture window out to the courtyard (roughly 5' tall by 8' wide) that could be fully exposed by opening the wooden shutter style blinds, or fully sealed off at night by closing the louvers. The in-wall a/c unit may be a tad bit small for the space, but by setting it at 68 I was able to keep the room at a comfortable 73 degrees all day long. The bedside kitchenette is adequate for short stays and comes stocked with pots, pans, plates, silverwear and an in-counter 2 burner stove if you wanted to cook yourself. The mini fridge was enough to hold leftovers from our dinners, a 12pack of cokes and a few bottles of water. Full size closet, hangers, ironing board and iron, dual sinks, adequately sized restroom, 2 seater table, large couch that can be folded out into a bed, 37" TV, coffe table, alarm clocks, can lights on a dimmer above the bed for reading... I can't find anything to pick on. Everything is satisfactory!
