We stayed at this Holiday Inn because we where going to Scarowinds that night and it was across the road. When we arrived our rooms where not ready although check in is at 4:00 and we arrived at 4:30. When I asked the young man at the desk when our rooms would be ready he said that he did not know. I ask to speak to his manager and he said that he was the manager. He was very rude and laughing at the fact that I was very quickly getting upset about the situation. I told him that we had driven six hours and just wanted to rest for awhile and that we really needed our rooms couldn't he give us a time which he would expect the rooms to be ready and he said that they where not yet cleaned and that he would have to ask the maids when they would be ready. He then stood and looked at me and I asked well could you ask them and he says to me I guess I could. He then returns not long after this and told me that our rooms where in fact ready. This was the worst experience that I have ever had at a hotel and I will never stay at a Holiday Inn again.

The hotel was nice, clean and we had a very nice sized room especially with 2 elementary aged children. Only problem was we didn't consider that we were there one of the first nights that the amusement park across the street open for the season. There wasn't anything the staff could do, it was just loud with people walking up and down the hall letting their doors slam at all hours of the night and early morning. It definately wasn't as quiet as my stay in the Hyatt.
