Stay here. The rooms are clean, the service is excellent, the breakfast is decent. The quality you get for the price is outstanding. The location is great - right off the freeway - and there's a wonderful steak house close by.

I had a great stay here at Holiday Inn Express & Suites. My room was clean and comfy and Makayla, the Front Desk Supervisor, was very helpful and informative. She and the staff were very friendly and made me feel at home. Me and my old fishing poll will be back to take in all the beauty again sometime soon!
