This is our new great outdoors!! Loved the beach! The staff was fantastic! Ashley McDougall went above and beyond to make sure we were having a great time! Also want to give a shout out to Pudwill the bartender you make a mean drink! Can't wait to come back!!!

Holiday Inn DL was a great choice. Room was clean. We had a room that walked out right to a beach on the lake. Nice area with seating all set up right outside of each of these rooms.

The hotel staff greets you by name and treats you like family. The evenings are spent at the restaurant /bar and Cole especially makes a customer feel welcome. He has a drink called the "pudwill" and it is smooth and very refreshing! Would definitely recommend!!

The GM Doug cancelled our reservations two days before we were due to arrive. He did this because he had a bad review from us previously. This was for busy weekend of the year. He also stated that he did this because we used reward points. The reservations were made months ago... Why cancel so close to our check in... More

All of the rooms you booked were for non-lakeside standard rooms through the IHG reservation portal. On Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 you called... More

We were treated to a special weekend away and looked specifically for a pet friendly hotel. Upon arrival I was greeted by two ladies at the desk whose smiling faces immediately turned to frowns when I told them I had a pet. They checked the reservation and it verified I had told them when I made the reservation. We were... More
