A Holiday Inn can be inconsistent in my experience. THIS Holiday Inn should give lessons to the rest! So much nicer than any I've ever stayed at! The courtyard around the pool is so lovely. The breakfast was hearty, with fantastic omlettes made to order & great bacon. The room was modern & spacious. The lighting detail around the bed... More

Rooms were just fine, swimming pool a little cold but great going back and forth between Jacuzzi. Great deal on breakfast $5.00 if you stay there, kids under 5 eat free and eggs as you like. Good bar and restaurant as well.

Stayed here two nights while on business. Max's restaurant was great! Looked liked several locals frequent the place as well. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable. There was no drain plug, not sure if this was on purpose or not, but couldn't take a bath. The business center was clean, copier and computers worked. All staff was polite and welcoming. Easy...

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in Auburn while attending my Grandmother's Funeral. The rooms were large, clean and updated. The onsite bar was great- perfect drinks and deserts. The hotel catered the funeral reception and the food was very good. The bar staff were great at making sure everyone had a drink. Great place to stay.

There was a lot of people in the halls and for some reason the staff kept leaving the cleaning carts in front of our rooms and they kept going back to them making noise. Also strange that there was a hallway just filled with chairs and things blocking an exit...
