When leaving from an unexpected stay the first of the year, we said the next time we came to Edmond we would return to the Holiday Inn as our stay went quite well. I also wanted to see what the renovations would be like. So in May, five months later, we arrived for our three night stay. I was surprised to see the renovations were still going on as if very little had been done. I had requested the same room we had before and got it. That room had undergone some changes, but nothing earth shattering from our first stay. The most obvious was the new headboard whereas before there were only carpenters markings on the wall. Believe the reviews here, there is a LOT of renovation still going on as of this posting including painting in the halls, and many rooms are just shut down completely. Now let me say this... It was obvious to me the staff there was doing all it could to make the best of a tough situation. I was impressed with their attitudes including everyone from the front desk to maintenance workers, to even the painters. They all were being as accommodating as possible. And the room was as nice as the first time, very clean with a decent bathroom, hot water in the shower with enough pressure to rinse your hair, working microwave and mini fridge, and thermostats that actually worked. The breakfast room was without a t.v. at the time, and the automatic pancake maker needed "assistance" in spitting them out but other than that, it was another very nice stay. And yes, we would stay here again if we pass through Edmond in 2015. If you're looking for a luxury, spa type of hotel, you need to go elsewhere especially until the renovations are finished. But if you don't mind a little dust and painting going on and want a decent room at a decent price and a hard working staff, I'd say give them a try. Believe me, they're as ready for the renovations to be over as anyone.
