Stayed one night here while traveling through the area with my family. The hotel is not new, but it was clean and comfortable. There were some minor renovations happening in the lobby and breakfast area, but apart from the cosmetic irregularities there was no disruption. I slept very well on the comfortable bed, as did my family. The water pressure in the bathroom shower was excellent.

I was put up here because it is very convenient to the airport. They have a shuttle that will get you there in less than 5 minutes. I was able to walk from the airport to the hotel in about 15 minutes. The hotel was ok. There is a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. The hotel sells some frozen dinners, but there is no food walking distance as far as I can tell. What really made this above average was the nice service of the front desk staff. Breakfast was a little sketchy, and they did not have any OJ.

Big flat screen with lots of stations, Direct TV. All hotels should have Direct TV. But, Network stations like ABC, CBS, were not working for the entire week I was there. Hotel currently being worked on, being redone, until May/June Upgraded to a jacuzzi suite. Nice thought, but I wish they had asked, would rather had a suite with sofa. The small low back chairs that came with this room were very uncomfortable.

We stayed here for the first time in March and we were very happy with our stay. I was glad to be able to park close to our room for loading and unloading purposes. The staff was very kind and the property was extremely safe. The breakfast was an absolute buffet and we waddled away stuffed. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we will be returning, Ken & Tara

This was our second stay at this property, the first visit would have earned at least a 4.5 but this second visit left us feeling very disappointed. The hotel is under renovation and notice is not sufficiently given on the booking website nor when you call the hotel directly. Work was done well past 5:00 PM in the evening as well as through the weekend. Until the work is completed, this is not the place for a relaxing stay. I'm a fan of Holiday Inn Express for travel but they came up short regarding notification of the condition of the property.

Kathy9630, thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We truly apologize that you did not experience a relaxing stay. We are truly doing our best to minimize the impact on our guest. The entire renovation is designed to improve our guest experience we totally understand during renovation it can be bothersome. We hope that despite the renovations, you will consider coming back and staying with us again and enjoy our fresh updated look. Thank you so much for staying with us.
