The room was set-up well for a family of four with two teenages (boy and girl). We had two queen beds plus a pull out couch which worked very well. The breakfast was good and was nice to be open for longer hours as they typically shut down at 9:30 am. The view from the breakfast room was very nice...

Thank you for sharing your review of your recent stay with us. It's great you found the room to be spacious enough for your entire family, the breakfast to be good and lengthy enough for your convenience and for the hotel to have a good location with a nice view. Hopefully next time we can earn those 2 missing stars...

We stayed for a sports tournament and upon walking in to the room, we were hit with a musty smell. We did alert the front desk and then called from the room regarding it, and they said someone would come up to "check it out". We thought another room would be offered. Nope. Maintenance came up with a spray air...

The hotel was situated behind a big gasstation and in a not very welcomed area. The river was dry and dirty. The welcome was good and friendly, reception looks nice and safe, hotel inside a little bit old, bed was good, internet was slow 9 up, 16 down.

In the past i can always rely on good service and quality. This one however is lacking the service quality.

Thank you for sharing your review of your recent stay with us. It is unfortunate you felt that way about the front desk employees at our hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for eight nights. We always request top floor, so we don't have guests stomping their feet above us. The king room we had was spacious and had a pullout couch, table and 2 chairs, a microwave and fridge with freezer. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room had a squealing shower, and maintenance...

The staff (especially Eva) was very courteous and helpful. The pool area was large and inviting. The hot tub was the perfect temp. Breakfast was ready early each day and included the usual variety of omelets, cinnamon rolls, cereals, fruits, and other choices. The breakfast area (with mountain views) was kept clean and the food items replenished. Our room (with...

Traveling to Fort Huachuca from Northern California we need a place to stay at the half way point. Decided on the Holiday Inn and it was great. Nice rooms, great staff, and as always very good breakfast. It was very quiet at night since it was away from the freeway. Will stay there again in the future.
