First of all, upon arrival we were kindly greeted by Alexis, who was very knowledgeable about the hotel and a pleasure to work with. The rooms were very comfortable, especially the beds, and were properly cleaned. One of the rooms did have a couple of minor... More

Lovely hotel. Our double queen room was large with a nice bathroom. Indoor pool was small and buggy despite being indoors. Huge hot tub. The complimentary breakfast was great. They had coffee mugs along side Styrofoam cups. We had to request an extra towel and it came quickly.

after 10+ years of traveling with baseball and softball, this by far was the best overall stay we had. Great staff, friendly, helpful, polite, so willing to go the extra step.

This was probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. The building and our room was immaculate, the staff were excellent, and the breakfast buffet was the best one I've had at holiday inn express. If we are ever in the area again, I would stay here!
