We booked this hotel through Hotwire.com and really lucked out! The entire hotel was clean and welcoming. The pool was nice (although only a couole jets in the hot tub worked). The staff was super friendly and extremely professional. We would definitely recommend it!

I communicated, respectfully, how dirty the room was to the front desk. They said they would send someone to clean it. After an hour, I asked for the cleaning supplies to do it myself (and I was sincere. I just wanted it cleaned). I was told the person would be there in 30 mins. The gentlemen was very nice, although... More

I travel fairly often and nearly always stay at Holiday Inn's. A lot of their hotels have been updated and it appears they have pulled their brand from those that could not or would not agree to the upgrades. Somehow his hotel got missed when it came time to assess what is acceptable. I believe a hotel can be somewhat... More

South out of town means you have to have a car. Even getting dinner is challenging with no restaurant and no room service and nothing within walking distance. On the plus side loads of shops and restaurants within a 10 to 25 min drive. Room was ok, bathroom clean, shower hot but the air con terrible. It worked but the... More

Our stay was a nightmare. The front desk person was nasty and rude. The security man told me that he was this way with many guests and management has done nothing with him. The neighborhood is rough and extremely noisy. Chosing this one was a huge mistake

This hotel was very average. Nothing special, not horrible. It was in need of some deep cleaning (carpets and such) but the room was just fine and comfortable; they had GREAT pillows; I always take my own but ended up using one of theirs.

We booked this room last minute. The price was too high for what we got. The price was about the same as Hilton's in the city. Very old rooms. Breakfast was mediocre. The pool was closed due to renovation.
