We walked in and the whole hotel smelt like weed and the logs had trash scattered everywhere. The security guard looked up at me and then went back to playing on his phone. Rooms were oldddddddd like 1980s old. How does this place still exist and how are they charging $200 a night. Listen to me when I say stay somewhere else! If you’re loyal to holiday inn stay at the Mart Plaza one it is a million times nicer and it’s the same price. We stayed here because the other was sold out but we will never ever stay here again. I literally considered checking out right after I checked in but there was nothing else around.

The hotel was gross with bugs and roaches in the sleeping area and bathroom. I checked our early and would never stay there again. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating but it’s clear the owners haven’t put money into upkeep of this property in years. The restaurant was average at best yet the staff tried to work with what was made available to them.

It’s was an hotel. The rooms was more like motel rooms. Nothing seemed updated in years. We came from out of town for a concert. Decided to skip paying for concert parking, instead just get a room close. This hotel doesn’t offer any guest parking accommodations. There is a paid parking lots that charges 25 a day with no real discounts to hotel patriot. Ridiculous. IHG NEEDS TO DO BETTER. Either way, I’m completing this to receive my points. Here’s my IHG # 258160452.

Worst hotel stay I’ve ever experienced and I’ve traveled the world. First of all, hotel rate was somehow $500 a night which was outrageous for a very basic, outdated room but had to do it for a job interview nearby. Broke the bank for a dirty, musty/smelly room and the kicker is that I developed bed bug welts over my face, neck and arms over the next couple days after staying here. CONFIRMED BEDBUGS! Never again will I stay at a Holiday Inn, never never.
