This hotel is very clean & the entire staff is friendly & happy to help and serve you. You may even find the owner filling in & helping his staff when they have too much to handle. The hotel is conveniently located walking distance to the movie theater and resturants. The breakfast bar is bigger and better than most hotels we have stayed at & if you are lucky enough to have Billie working the breakfast station, you can be sure you will have a wonderful dining experience. The hotel was happy to provide us with extra towels, pillows and other essentials we needed along with separate towels for pool use. We had quiet restful sleep even with a hotel full of people. You won't go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: Ask the reservation person whether the room you are booking has the sink outside of the shower area...

Thank you for taking the time to respond and let us know how we are doing. You certainly will not find an absentee owner at this property! Our owner Is very hands on and involved in every aspect of our hotel. When you have an owner or manager that has a take charge attitude you can't help but want to do your best. With our employees, it matters who you put where! Billie is a treasure and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, her mother Pat is also an asset to our team. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to having you as our guest in the future

Check-in was a little haphazard due to numerous wedding guests checking in at the same time. Felt a little like a second-class citizen, when clerk kept answering other guests questions, etc.

Room was VERY CLEAN, and we had the necessary number of towels and washcloths (4). This is not always the case with IHG properties. My wife could not find any dirt or dust, and not a single remnant from a previous guest. A/C was efficient and not noisy.

Walking distance to several eateries: Ruby Tuesday, Buffalo Wild Wings, DQ, and The Brown Derby (which we did not see until our walk back to the hotel).

Reception that was going on looked like it was well taken care of by the hotel. Even had an area to hold the ceremony in that was a glass encased room.

Pool area is SUPER! Not too deep, but big enough for quite a number of guests to use. Showers, bathroom, and lockers for swimmers to use as well.

20 miles outside of Cleveland. Wish it was closer so that we could have stayed here for another two days.

Thank you! Your comments help us to be a Hotel Guest's LOVE and we certainly could not do it without your feed back. Check-in-time can be hectic, and we go out of our way to make sure the stress of checking in is minimized. With check in beginning at 4:00 PM we advise our guests to call the hotel between 12:30 PM- 1:00PM to see if a clean room has become available, if one is not we offer to take your cell number and call when it is ready.
I appreciate you taking the time to point out quite a few aspects of our hotel you enjoyed, it let's us know we are doing something right!

We stayed here because we attended a friends wedding. They had reserved a block of rooms and we got a king bed executive suite. The room was very clean and spacious. It had a mini kitchen with microwave, frig. and sink plus some cabinetry. The suite had a pull out couch and two tvs. One for the bedroom portion and another for the pull out bed area. The tub and toilet were seperate from the sink which was nice. The only problem with the room was that the bathroom fan made a strange noise and the fitted sheet kept coming off of the bed. The fact that the reception hall was connected was really nice. The food at the recption done by Lamalfa was very good and presented nicely. The decorations were well done too.

I booked 17 rooms for our family tour which included 27 youth ages 5-18 and 24 adults including grandparents - a wide range of taste to please. We could NOT have been happier. The rooms were immaculate, roomy and gorgeous (according to the teenage girls). The pool was heaven on earth (according to the teenage boys). The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful (according to all). The staff hovered and attended to our every need and we needed some extra things. I will encourage everyone I know to stay here whenever they are in this area.

What a pleasure it was to stay here. We stayed for a Wedding Reception and what a great experience we had. Starting from check-in to check-out everything was perfect. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous and the food at the Reception was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful stay, hope to come back again!

Stayed here for one night and it was great! Hotel is only 20 min east of downtown Cleveland; but it's only five minutes from a great State beach with a beautiful old lighthouse. The hotel is nicely decorated. The beds were super comfy and the shower was heaven. While we didn't use the pool it looked really nice--huge in fact. Breakfast was a typical Holiday Inn fair. The staff was truly friendly and very genuine. Wifi was super fast. Loved it and had not one complaint.
