This really isn't a negative review, as overall the hotel was just fine. But it was just average. As some other reviewers have mentioned it was a little dated, but not DATED like some hotels. It's kind of in that limbo zone where it's new enough that it doesn't really NEED an update, but just dated enough that you can tell it's not that new.
My room and double beds were smaller than the standard updated Holiday Inn Express (HIE) rooms, but they were fine. Did have HDTV which was nice, but the signal kept cutting out, and at one point cut out altogether. Just went to sleep at that point.
Another minor pet-peeve is that I couldn't turn the heater fan on all the time. I like the noise when I sleep. "Fan On" wouldn't put out heat (which was needed). Newer HIEs have the control on the wall that lets you do that.
On the plus side, staff was very friendly, and the downstairs and breakfast areas were updated and nice. Breakfast spread was very good, maybe slightly better than the average HIE. Hotel was easy to find and plenty of parking (lots more around back!).
Again, don't let this review fool you. This stay was acceptable and I'd stay at it again. But if you really like the super-updated HIE hotels, you might try another one in the area first.
