Michelle and coworker were outstanding. they were business like, professioal and took care of us like we were family. If you need two hundred charac ters to tell how great these folks were you have a problem.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel when visiting for a graduation. The hotel was pretty full. The parking lot sometimes only had a few spots left. Assuming the hotel was pretty booked I was pleasantly surprised with how quiet it was at night. The room and lobby were both very clean and I slept like a rock. The bed... More

As a gold member of the rewards program I was very disappointed. No welcome as such, no welcome bag or bonus points. In addition the available amenities were not explained as far as fitness club, pool, or dining. In all the other HI properties I have ever stayed in, the showerhead was wonderful. This one was terrible. Thankfully it was... More

Front Desk Personal are friendly and courteous. Due to not taking elevators (I do not like elevators) and only using stairs our room was changed from the 4th floor overlooking the lake to the 2nd floor overlooking the roof and air conditioners. Noise from air condition did not make for very good nights sleep. All in all I would highly... More

Very nice hotel. Rooms were clean, but really damp feeling (it was very humid there) and the hotel was very modern. There is a Omaha Steakhouse there at the hotel, which did have breakfast for a cost, but there was no complimentary breakfast or coffee in the morning. The closest place was Another Broken Egg, about a mile or so... More

Checked in early at 12:30 and our beautiful Lakeview king room was ready. Room is very nicely decorated with a king bed and a 32 inch flat screen TV. Bathroom is clean and modern and has everything you need. Holiday Inn members get a welcome gift. Nice clean pool faces the lake not the parking lot, very nice. The restaurant... More

If you like hearing babies crying, the pitter patter of children's feet running up and down the hallways at all hours, and doors slamming every 15 seconds this is the place for you. I've stayed here twice and this place is very "family friendly." If you need a good night's sleep for business you should probably look elsewhere. The staff... More
