I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn for an evening a few days after it first opened its doors this month (June 2009). This is a brand-new hotel -- the old Holiday Inn having lost its franchise.
The decor is much nicer than old-style Holiday Inns. The location is easy to find and very close to the shopping mall, restaurants, and retail shops. The hotel also provides complimentary shuttle bus service to the airport about 10 minutes away in Freeland.
My only disappointment is the lack of bathtubs in hotel rooms. Apparently the new ADA regulations required the hotel to forgo bathtubs for showers, which is disappointing because I enjoy a nice bath every now and again. The rooms are otherwise very nicely done with large, flat screen televisions, fast wireless internet access, comfortable beds and nice decor.
The restaurant in the hotel is a sports bar and grill with dozens of plasma televisions and a reasonably priced menu. While it was an enjoyable eating service, there an was issue with my hamburger as I found a piece of hair on the plate. Additionally, they did not have a wine list, though they maybe a dozen wines.
Overall, this is going to be Midland's nicest hotel outside The H Hotel in downtown Midland. I definitely recommend it.
