Had reservations for our 35th anniversary. They changed our reservations to a lesser room. Did not call us prior and did not tell us upon check-in. Did receive a partial refund. Beds were miserable. Pillows even worse. A suite that was not a suite, just a big room. Only 1 tv and it couldn't be viewed from the bed. Maybe...

Hotel has been updated and this time it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely go back again. There was a large family congregation there with kids but was very quite. They offered a nice full breakfast available and coffee available all evening. Enjoy my stay.

We are so pleased with our stay here. We were fortunate enough to be here on a Wednesday as the hotel provides pizza as a welcome to their hotel. The front desk called shortly after our arrival to check on us. Staff is courteous and the hotel is well maintained.

Hotel is standard Holiday Inn Express. Which is a good thing in my opinion. Clean room. Nice bed. Staff was highlight for me. I had forgotten my phone charger, the young lady that checked me in offer to let me borrow hers. I thought that was nice.
