Friend staff and good location. However, the rooms are really in need of updating. Rather run down. The toilet was installed VERY crooked and far away from the wall. Makes me question the expertise of any of the work that was done on the rooms

I spent here one night. The hotel is nice and clean. Staff is friendly. There is also a restaurant inside if you don't want to go out. The only negative note is the smell at the ground floor. The air was heavy and didn't smell nice. This being said, it is definitely a nice alternative if you want to visit... More

We spent three nights at the HIFP last week for a mini vacation. The hotel is an older one that has been remodeled. A few spots show age, but we were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. Front desk and restaurant staff were friendly and responsive. Did not use the pool or fitness center. Our reservation came... More

The front desk was very friendly. The food in the cafe was delicious but pricey. The pool was nice. Comfortable rooms. Very nice beds. The room and bathroom was very clean and well kept. Overall a very good stay.

This is a well maintained older hotel. You can see the updates they have done to make your stay enjoyably. All the staff were very pleasant and frendly. The room was clean and well stocked. The balcony was not impressive, just a walkout area. But it does allow getting out of the room for a few minutes. :) My room... More

We were somewhat disappointed with our stay here. The facility is clean and well maintained. Not all rooms have a refrigerator which we wanted. The reservation was for a balcony room and we were given a first floor room. The patio area just outside our room had cigarette butts all over it. This is supposed to be a 100% smoke-free... More

I love Holiday Inn and usually stay there because they have balconies (my husband smokes) this hotel however does not allow balcony smoking and the very nice clerk warned we would be charged $250 if we smoked on our 7th floor balcony. Ok. so no smoking outside. I didn't bother to check the website to see if fridges are in... More

I appreciate your review. I was happy to hear the hotel staff were friendly, and I am sorry for the other issues. Keep in mind that all hotels are owned and operated differently, so while we ban smoking another may allow. Same as when we close our pool, we have certain things we must abide by with our city and... More
