We didn't stay at the hotel but, went there for lunch. The waitress (Darlene) was excellent and very friendly. The food was fresh and presented nicely. The chef (Vaughn) even came out to check and say hello. A great little hidden gem lunch spot.

Great Staff and a decent restaurant in the lobby but the rooms are a bit 1970ish. They are clean and acceptable but could use an upgrade to bring them in the 2000's. On the plus side, my room did have a fridge, microwave and coffee machine.

Tori and Lyle treated me like a king. Wonderful employees who know customer service at it's finest. They took the time to call me and write a very nice card. Anything I asked for they made happen. I've stayed in hundreds of Holiday Inn's traveling and this is by far one of the best in terms of friendliness and service.

Just normal hotel rooms, but a friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, and central location make this a nice place to stay. The exercise area was a pleasure as well - with huge windows looking out on the pool area and well-equipped (three treadmills, two elipticals, full range of free weights).
