Stayed at this hotel before back four years ago. It is still in good shape, clean and what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The fitness center had everything working. We ate at the Texas Roadhouse across the street which was an easy walk.

The Holiday Inn at Sycamore is what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. Nice clean rooms and comfortable beds. I especially liked the continental breakfast, which had hot and cold items and a good selection. A couple of things I didn't like: I stayed during Thanksgiving

We are glad that you liked the hotel. My apologies for the pool being closed but there was a problem with the chemicals and it is against Health dept. codes to open the pool if the chemicals are not correct. We did not open the pool for guest safety. I know that is frustrating for the guest but we must think of safety first. Thank you for sharing your thoughts we hope you will stay with us again soon!
