I have to be completely honest and say that I am not a big fan of the Holiday Inn chain, they are just very inconsistent with their hotels and you never know what you will get. However this hotel almost made me change my mind, the location is very convenient and the rooms are super clean. The only negative for... More

We arrived late, about 9:30pm. The front desk clerk was friendly. We asked about pool hours and she said it closed at 10, but that she was closing it so she would leave it open until 11 if we wanted to swim. The pool was a good size, and the hot tub was very relaxing. Our room was very clean,... More

They have some smoking rooms and our entire floor smelled like a dirty ash tray. Even with a nonsmoking room, it felt like we had to walk through smokey bar to get there. Not to mention that most of the smokers are probably smoking in bed. That kinda scares me. From now on, we will only be staying in nonsmoking... More

Rooms are nice and clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. They were painting the outside of the building but it was no bother to us as they were finishing up for the day when we arrived. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed the larger flat screen tv that was in the room as well. The... More

I stayed here on a business trip for the week and found it to be a wonderful experience. The staff is very helpful, they even started breakfast early for the week when they found out we had to leave before normal breakfast hours! I have a bad back and even I can get a good night's sleep on their beds.... More

Rooms are very clean. Beds are comfortable! Breakfast attendant Sheila was very nice and helpful!! She always has a smile and ready to help with breakfast and directions if you need them! The only thing I would say could be improved is the pool area. Very small pool and water was a little cool. Other than that, a very desirable... More
