Let me preface this by saying I stay at a lot of hotels, but not a lot of Holiday Inns. There was nothing intrinsically wrong with this property - the front desk staff was helpful, the room was clean, the bed was okay. There was nothing great about the property either. Inside it felt a little dark. There's an Outback connected to the property, which is really convenient. We had a small luncheon there for about 20 people and the staff did not adequately set up the room, Fortunately we showed up early to get things squared away and our event took place without issue.
There really is nothing around this hotel - it's not in the best area, but not knowing Laurel I cannot say for sure there are better options, but my gut says there are.
