I booked via Priceline and upon arriving at the Holiday Inn I was greeted by two friendly front desk employees. They greeted me as a priority club member and check-in was easy. I moved my car to the location of my room, unloaded my car & walked to the room.
I opened the hotel room door to be greeted by an overwhelming smell of a "smoking room covered up with a heavy fragrance". (the great part is I had just signed a "do not smoke or pay $200 fine paper on check-in). I walked back to the front desk and asked for another room -- I was given another room but had the same issue.
Finally -- after everyone trying to find me a room for two nights I was given a room in the main hotel area (newer rooms). I had asked for a room in the main building when checking in and "nothing was available". Overall, I feel that I was given the old room because I booked on priceline...
New room -- very small but clean & smelled great! The BIG downside was the walls are super thin -- if we didn't run the ac 24/7 we could hear the neighbors conversations!
Breakfast was free and great -- the staff was great at keeping everything perfect. Food was kept hot, replenished quickly!
Parking was free & so was internet which is a great perk!
Fitness center was a joke! Treadmill is OLD and you can't run on it -- if you walk it's ok but if you try to run it shakes & is so loud! The elliptical isn't much better... overall the fitness center gets a 1 out of 10.
Overall our stay was good but ask for a room in the main hotel area and NOT the back building!
