My husband was in the Cleveland area on business and I was able to accompany him. Having been to the area on previous business trips, we knew the areas of Cleveland to avoid and knew that Independence was a reasonably upscale area. In fact, we have stayed at this Holiday Inn for business in the past and made the decision to stay there again in spite of the fact that during that other stay the motel was undergoing a major upgrade/remodel and maneuvering around construction debris was a bit awkward.
Our stay this time was without hitch. Common areas of the motel are grand and the staff was friendly.
Our king room was spacious with a couch and a work desk (important for my husband has he has reports to complete after his meetings). We did not have any issues with the internet as reported in other reviews. The bathroom was a bit tiny but very clean. We had an issue with the commode running but a call to the front desk had maintenance there immediately. Since we were there for multiple days, daily maid service was not needed but they did check on us each morning and refreshed our bathroom daily.
The pool area is in a separate building but connected to the main building by an enclosed walkway. Mostly we were the only ones in the pool and enjoyed our swim albeit in a somewhat chilly pool. There was also a dry sauna and an exercise room in the pool complex.
The only issue we had with this stay was with breakfast. As with most business-type lodging choices, breakfast was not included in the cost of the room. This is usually not a problem but the buffet, priced at just under $10 per person, did not vary during our stay and offered little in the way of variety. Ordering from the menu would have cost as much as the buffet so we each had the buffet. On check-out day we opted to leave before eating and just look for a breakfast place further down the highway.
