Was looking for reasonable place to stay. Restaurant was very disappointing; Food quality & cleanliness. Staff acted like they didn't care. Hotel room and restaurant were not clean/hygienic. Expect better standards from a brand name hotel.

We came here after spending a night at chateau Elan so this review is difficult but must admit that we came here to the holiday inn as an alternative when chateau Elan was fully booked, good stay, clean, customer friendly and quiet.

We were at this hotel for one night, we had a king suite overlooking the pool. The bed was crazy comfortable. This hotel is over 27 years years old and well maintained but could use some updating. The furnishings were a bit out dated in the room and the bathtub was stained which gave the impression it wasn't very clean.... More

After driving nearly 11 hours (2 stuck in traffic from Atlanta), we were glad we found this hotel. It was nicer than the expensive hotel we stayed in Atlanta. It had a fridge, a microwave and full length mirrors. We couldn't get our Keurig to work, but the free breakfast buffet started at 6 a.m. and that was a pleasant... More

We stayed here in May 2016. We arrived at the hotel a little after 9PM. After waiting at the front desk for over 10 minutes, I finally did a walk about and found the night clerk.
