“Excellent stayover - pet friendly, too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We stayed here for the first time last Friday en route to Florida. Weather forecast caused us to make last minute plans and we feel fortunate to have spent our first night here. The hotel was very conveniently located to the Interstate. Room was well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Our first floor location near the side exit made walking our dog very easy and the grounds were great for that, too. Staff was helpful and courteous. Nearby Outback Steakhouse was perfect on a cold, wintery night. And breakfast buffet was nicely stocked and well managed. A top notch experience in all ways.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are convenient for those traveling with pets.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights in January with my fiance on a business trip. I tried Homewood Suites on my last trip and thought I'd try Holiday Inn this time because I prefer Holiday Inn. The rooms were clean and spacious. Compared to Homewood, the room was smaller. It is a single room suite. Homewood is a two room suite. The kitchen at Holiday Inn is a small refridge and a few plates with a coffee maker. Homewood is a full kitchen. The breakfast is ok especially to be free. I liked Homewood's better. The price was comparable to Homewood. The gym is one of the better I have seen at a hotel. I would recommend asking for a room not on the 1st floor. We were room 124, which is right across from the gym and right by the lobby where breakfast is served. Needless to say, it is pretty noisy. I am not giving Holiday Inn a bad review. It was a nice hotel (notice the 4 star rating I gave). I would stay here again. But I prefer Homewood, which is right next door. Either one will do though.

Room Tip: Pick a room not on the first floor

Our room was clean, and the front desk service was friendly and efficient. We stayed in the whirlpool suite, and it was great. The breakfast was one of the best complementary hotel breakfasts that we've ever had - lots of variety and well-staffed. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Great facilities. Big rooms, good pool, small but nice jacuzzi/hot tube and great common room for breakfast and lounging. Small gym nice too. Staff friendly. In the middle of running malls. Especially good for pooch toting travelers. Note: the booking sites are listing pets allowed at hotels that wont have them. This one will! Reasonable 25. fee. Enjoy!

Nearing the end of our journey from LA to NY with dog, we chose this Holiday Inn because the nearby Best Western, the chain we thought was 100% pet friendly, wasn't pet friendly in this location. The switch to Holiday Inn worked well. The room was comfortable and well-outfitted with fluffy pillows, good mattress and clean white bedding. There was also free wi-fi and a big desk and desk chair. The parking lot abutted a number of food chains and that was very welcome on a rainy blustery night. Breakfast was a buffet with a wide selection to satisfy all proclivities.

Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was okay. Breakfast attendant was nice and helped us find everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay overall and would return. Hotel allows pets, we didn't bring ours along but maybe next time if we pass through.

This pet friendly hotel is located right off the highway next to a variety of restaurants including two right next to the hotel - Buffalo Wild Wing & Outback. Breakfast had a variety of hot and cold foods, better than most Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast started at 6am, even on the weekend!
We stayed twice in November 2012 and both times the hotel was busy. We were surprised how quiet our room was. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.There is a mall on the other side fo the highway and a Prime Outlets 10 minutes away. Lots of on side parking and 2 luggage carts! The staff was friendly. Highly recommended Holiday Inn Express!
