We were exhausted from being on the road for over ten hours and just needed a place to stay. I called about an hour ahead thinking that it being a Holiday Inn that it must be a decent place to stay, but I was horribly wrong.
Upon our arrival, we were directed to behind the elevators. As soon as the elevator doors opened for us to get out, we were immediately appalled. We walked down a dingy lit hall, with worn wood doors. After a bit of struggle opening our door, we were greeted with dust bunnies in the corners, worn carpet, stained walls and curtains and a smell that consisted of old fried food and smoke. We should have ran, but were just too exhausted.
My son was just getting over bronchitis at this time, but after staying here his symptoms got severely worse. He coughed all night, due to the rotten old cigarette smoke. There were also a group of young people that left a trail of pot smoke through the whole hall.
Upon leaving this room, which ended up being very early in the morning due to our family just wanting to get as far away as possible, our whole family ended up with respiratory issues for our 10 hour drive home. I truly hope that Holiday Inn corporate finds out about this place and they with the city condemn it. It is truly a health hazard! Don't let the online pictures and lobby fool you either. Spend ten bucks more and stay elsewhere!
