Stayed for two nights. Called ahead to confirm the desired location of rooms and set up. They had everything down already and they also confirmed that they would hold our rooms in spite of late check in. When we got there they indeed had assigned us the wanted rooms. We were greeted very friendly and with hot chocolate chip cookies, and little bags with water and snacks as well as a coupon for free drinks across the street. Although we didn't make it across the street the gesture is really welcomed and it made us feel appreciated.
Rooms were spacious and looked like the Hyatt we recently stated at in Denver Colorado, so was very positively surprised of how nice they were as I didn't expect this nice standard at a Holiday Inn.
Throughout the stay everyone on staff were overly friendly and extending themselves as much as possible to make every guest feel welcome.
We only have two cons for this hotel: first of all they use styrofoam for the breakfast. The breakfast has a nice large variety and seems quite fresh. But why on earth ruin the feeling by using cheap environmentally harzadeous not to mention unhealthy etc. The dining room is nice and the spread was good but the styrofoam really ruined that nice feel. I would much rather pay an extra $1-2 per night and have proper dishes.
Secondly the pool was more than very cold. They afterwards said they had just changed the water but it would be nice if they would notify/warn guests before the guests jumped in to a crocodile bath.
This hotel is also located very nicely away from major highways, and probably the quietest of all the hotels in the vicinity. Only noise we heard was in the evening when another guests car alarm went off and once when the adjoining property was having their parking lot shoveled for snow (yes annoying but I guess weather is out of the hands of the hotel).
Last comment is that adjoining rooms don't allow you to keep doors ajar but one can keep them unlocked for easy access. Would be nice with a door stopper so we didn't have to worry about them slamming on us.
