Nice Holiday Inn but the internet service was horrible! I could not get any work done whatsoever on my laptop. Took forever to load a page. Last day there, saw a baby roach crawling around. Uggghhhhh....this is why I never put my stuff on the floor!
Anyway, Outback is attached to the hotel so that was convenient and the food was good. Breakfast is highly overpriced, especially if all you want is fruit and coffee. You would do better going elsewhere unless you want the convenience of going downstairs.
Free parking and internet so you can't beat that these days!
Housekeeping staff were extremely friendly and nice. This was the first time I left a tip for housekeeping. She kept my room spotless and she had a lot to work around (I bring a lot of fitness stuff when traveling). Front desk staff was blah. I think the manager didn't even bother to speak to me, nor smile, but the other lady did and she smiled, too.
Would I recommend? Yep, for business. Nothing romantic whatsoever. It's not close to much of anything. You WILL have to drive at least 5 miles to get to major shopping areas BUT it's right off the interstate.
