This place is a hidden gem!! We stayed here for two nights in a comfortable, clean room! They have a wonderful breakfast spread each morning and a fabulous fitness center! The pool is more than double the size of other hotels and includes a whirlpool and sauna! I will definitely stay here again!

I am a fan of Holiday Inns. Even at their most basic they are usually clean and comfortable. And so was this one, although it looks like it has seen happier days. It just felt a little tired and in need of a bit of a make-over. WiFi was free but so erratic as to be unusable. Breakfast was self-serve...

This was our second time staying at this location. I would recommend them to anyone. The king suite we had was wonderful, clean and spacious. The wifi worked great and the bathroom was clean and well stocked. They have gone to Krueg's coffee makers and give you three cups daily. I did get more from the front desk. The breakfast...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a block for a wedding we were attending. Our room appeared clean and was comfortable. The staff and breakfast were alright, not outstanding.

Was here on a two weeks business trip. I selected the hotel because of the gym and this is surely the best feature of this place. It opens 5pm on weekdays and closes at midnight so I could do two workouts per day. The gym is free and it is a separate business and quite large . At least much...

We were in town to visit relatives and this hotel seemed like a good choice for a multiple day stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was no fridge and microwave which would have been a plus for us. The hotel is heavily used and could use some updating with the carpets in the halls. From what appears to...

The place is in need of a serious update/makeover. Everything is dated. Getting to the pool was a maze through a locker room. The place was filled with sports teams and parents - which is probably great for that. The elevators were painfully slow, so we ended up just walking up and down six flights of stairs. One room smelled...
